Noel Fielding tutorial

Well, here's my first tutorial, hope it will be useful for you

how to go from this  to this

Made in Photoshop CS2, involves Selective Coloring

Ok, here's our base:

1. First, we need to duplicate it, and set the layer to Screen, 50%. This icon is not very dark, for some darker bases you may need to set the screen layer to 100% or even use two or more screen layers

2. Then, duplicate the base once again, drag this layer onto the top and set it to soft light, 100%, to make it more contrast


3. Now we need to make this icon more colourful. Create Selective Coloring Layer, set it to Normal, 100%
Reds: -100, 0, +100, +28
Yellows: -100, +28, -100+32
Neutrals: +81, -11, -31, +7


4. Create another Selective Coloring layer, set it, again, to Normal, 100%
Reds: -100, -20, +100, +10
Yellows: -100, +2, -30, +62
Neutrals: +40, -8, -22, 0


5. Don't you think this icon needs a frame or something like that? I've chosen a texture made by girlboheme, and set it to Multiply, 100%:

 +  =>

6. Well, we've almost finished! Now we need to make colours look smooth and blueish. For that, create a new Fill Layer, fill it with #0f0bad (in fact, any shade of dark blue will do), and set it to Exclusion, 22%


Here it is! If you want, you can stop here, but I think this icon still lacks something, so I decided to add some text on it:


Comments are luv, as usual
