022. Tutorial!

My first icon tutorial, by request!

We'll be going from to in seven steps!
Using PSP7, but translatable.

1. Start with your base.

2. Duplicate, and set that to Screen 45%.

3. Duplicate your base again, drag it to the top, and set it to Soft Light 100%.

4. Make a new raster layer, and fill it with #000C4A. Set that to Exclusion 100%.

5. Duplicate your base, drag it up to the top, desaturate (Colors -> Adjust -> Hue/Saturation/Lightness -> set Saturation at -100), and set it at Soft Light 100%.

6. Add a Saturation layer, 20 (New Adjustment Layer -> Hue/Saturation/Lightness -> set Saturation at 20).

7. Add a 1px black border & you're done!

Let me know what you think, and the icon is up for grabs if anyone wants it! I have a whole batch coming when I get them all together--soon, I promise. :)
