Tutorial / PSP7

Tutorial requested by miss mscreations :)

From Image and video hosting by TinyPic to Image and video hosting by TinyPic

1. Crop your image centering our lovely duo, then duplicate it and set to screen 50%

2. Add a color layer (#BADAF8) and set it to burn 100%
(you can either do this or slightly darken the icon with selective coloring, enhancing the neutrals as you like it)
Anyway, the result should be something like this (Mulder's blue t-shirt needs to be bluer and his hair a little bit darker)

3. Add this texture by ownthesunshine and set it to multiply 100%, then flip it (or if you use PS rotate it until the red part is on top

4. Add this texture by lelymarques and set it to soft light 60%

5. Merge layers, duplicate the icon and flip it (or rotate it until Mulder and Scully are upside down), then place this texture (or any other grungy grey texture similar to this one), moving the M&S copy underneath so that half the icon features their heads and the bottom half of it is filled with the grey part of the texture

6. Add "believe" (faded as you like it) and "mulder" and "scully" (duplicated until they're visible enough) in X-Files font

I'm still squeeing too!! And yes, I could either post it here or in my lj but then I thought it was better to post it here..maybe the comm will be a bit more active too, from now on.

Speaking of unactive XF communities, it's a shame XF lims is not anymore. Plus...was there ever an awards XF comm around? There should be one! With the upcoming new movie everybody is maing more XF icons!!! :)

I hope so.. oh I'm not to thrilled with lims comms. I don't think my icons would be good enough to post. but I remember the xfile awards one that was cool. you know what I was thinking? about a icon community for just icons from the movie since so many people post those. I think it would be neat. would you be a moderator with me? and do you think you could make a layout? I totaly suck at making them.

and speaking of a icon community for the new movie. we would be able to post preview icons. since it's for the movie. and people would know there would be spoiler icons. also we could post wallpapers collages and kind of art realting to the movie.

it's a good idea, although there's already a community about the new movie and it's xfiles2. They definitely don't mind being spoiled there! hehe But if you just wanna make a XF2 icons comm, I could help you with it..I'd definitely be willing to make a header anyway. hehe :D

yea I saw that one. but this one be just for . xfiles2 posts info and pics. I'd love if you could make a header. and set it up and post your stuff. would you be willing to be a mod? what do you think of the name Believe Again?
