#1 Tutorial

>>

First sharpen your base (Filter >> Sharpen >> Sharpen)


Then go to Filter >> Surface Blur, set Radius to 5 and Threshold to 5. And/or take blur tool and blur the sharpened and pixel-y areas, so skin looks clean and smooth.



Duplicate the base three times, set first two duplicated layers to Screen 100%, the third copy set to Soft Light 100% and Desaturate (Image >> Adjustments >> Desaturate or Shift+Ctrl+U).



Now the coloring part (Actually you can stop after any of these steps and get very nice coloring):

Add this gradient and set it to Hard Light 80%

>>


Next add this gradient and set it to Multiply 100%

>>


Next gradient, set it to Soft Light 100%

>>


And the last one - set to Soft Light 100%

>>


Next duplicate the base, drag it on top, desaturate and set to Soft Light 100%



Next add a selective color layer (Layer--->New Adjustment Layer--->Selective Color) and choose Blacks:



Set the black color to +15%



Then go to neutrals and set the yellow to -15%



This is what you got:



And this is what my Layer Palette looks like if you got confused:







Layer >> Flatten Image




Very nice add to icon is rounded border:

>>


Make a selection 98x98 px

 


Select >> Modify >> Smooth

Set Sample Radius to 5 pixels

 


Next Copy your selection and past it on new 100x100 Transparent canvas.


Save it as *gif document and your done!
