Draw me  
I made a tutorial for this drawing style icon.

Program: Photoshop CS2

I used THIS picture of Jared Padalacki for this icon.

First of all I took THIS texture. (Sorry I don't know who made it)

Now let's start by cropping and sharpening the image.

Duplicate your layer and desaturate it.
Set the layer on LINEAR BURN and the opacity 40%.

Duplicate the desaturated layer and invert it by CTRL-I or Image - Adjustments - Invert.

Change the blending mode to COLOR DODGE. Now it looks mostly white But don't worry - it  is supposed to look like this! ;o)

Go to the filter menu and choose BLUR - MOTION BLUR. Adjust the level until you like the result. I set mine to Angle - 80 / Distance 25 px. But this depends on the picture you're using.
Now set the opacity of the layer to 70 %.

You can add some text if you like. I wrote JARED by using the font DIRTY HEADLINE.

And that's it:
