Dean Icon Tutorial  
I was asked if I could make a tutorial about my last icons. So here it is.







I used THIS pic of Jensen Ackles.

First of all I started with this background 

 


I croped the pic of Jensen and sharpened it once.



I've deleted the background of the Jensen pic with the eraser tool.



Now it should look like this:



Desaturate your layer (Image > Adjust > Desaturate)



Now I use this texture made by sparklingeye



You can download the whole texture set HERE

Put the texture below the Jensen layer. Rotate it and set it on multiply.



It looks quite nice already. But if you want an icon like the one above, there are two more steps.

Desaturate the texture layer (Image > Adjust > Desaturate)



Time for the finish. Place this texture onto all layers



Screen it and put it wherever you like it on your icon

And now we are done!



Your layers should look like this:



I hope it was understandable! ;o)

 
good
Current Mood good

Not really - it's just disguise. *gg*

God that's amazing.
Manu: dean bwrsweetgirl7808 on March 18th, 2008 03:02 pm (UTC)
Na, it's really simple. ;o)

*Ganz schlimm rot werd*

Ist ja gar nicht wahr. Ich probier nur rum! ;o)

This is really educated. I was lost for a moment when I saw the pic of the layers and I thought "What is 'Hintergrund'? Is it a new filter I've never heard before?" And then It came to me that "Oh..it's background". Felt a bit silly for a few seconds there. *heh*

Thanks so much, sweetie for take time to share this. I go try it now.

*huggles* :D

I'm sooo sorry!

I'm using a german version of PS. :o(
I had an english version before. But I lost it when my pc crashed. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

*lool*

I can't believe you've used the red "dot" again! The icon looked awesonme in cyan/petrol! *gggg* I'm totally in love with it!

smooches
Manu: sam lolsweetgirl7808 on March 18th, 2008 03:36 pm (UTC)
Ich LIEBE meinen roten Punkt! *loooooool*

Und ich fand den Icon in Cyan/Petrol auch total schön. Deshalb hab ich geschrieben, das man da auch aufhören kann. *gg*

*snuggles*

Okay *blush* Ich muss mal nachfragen... Ich versteh das iwie noch nicht mit dem roten Punkt. Wie haste das gemacht, dass man nur das rot sieht und nichts schwarzes von dem Bild??
Manu: sam b/w/rsweetgirl7808 on March 18th, 2008 04:46 pm (UTC)
Du legst die Texture mit dem Punkt ganz oben drauf und klickst auf "Umgekehrt multiplizieren".

Das findest Du dort wo auf dem letzten Bild oben "Normal" steht. Einfach den kleinen Pfeil anklicken und dann erscheint eine ganze Liste. Da ist auch "Umgekehrt multiplizieren" dabei. ;o)

Thanks for this tutorial! :o) As I told you before: I love this "b/w with red style" and I guess I'm gonna try this on some of my icons! :o)
Manu: dean bwrsweetgirl7808 on March 19th, 2008 08:42 am (UTC)
My pleasure! ;o)
Would love to see your results!
misutakimisutaki on March 18th, 2008 07:24 pm (UTC)
you give yourself way too little credit, to be able to come up with the designs to use is a feat in itself I must say. And you must not put yourself down because how does that make the rest of us look :P
Manu: heartsweetgirl7808 on March 19th, 2008 08:45 am (UTC)
*hugs tight*

You're such a sweetie!!! ♥

Manu: dean impalasweetgirl7808 on March 19th, 2008 08:47 am (UTC)

Very nicely done! I;m not quite creative enough but it's interesting seeing the process in it all! :D
Manu: dean sam cloudssweetgirl7808 on March 19th, 2008 08:51 am (UTC)
I totally love tutorials. I'm always curious how artists create their work. :o)
