So to make up for that, I bring you a tutorial!
Learn to go from to
|Start out with your base. I got the image from here, re-sized, cropped it, and applied auto contrast. Then I sharpened the base.|
|As you can see, here I added a 4-pixel black border. There is a reason for doing that right away, everything we do to the image will affect the border as well. Merge the base image and the border!|
|Create a new layer, fill it with #161625, and set it to Exclusion, 100% opacity.|
|Make a new layer, fill it with #DDD19D and set it on Multiply, 30% opacity.|
|And yet again, make a new layer, fill it with #A5D3ED and set it on Color Burn, 50% opacity.|
|One more time, folks. XD Another layer, fill it with #CAF6F0 and set it on Linear Dodge, 30% opacity.|
|Duplicate your base(make sure the border is included!) twice, bring both to the top, desaturate them both, and set them both to Soft Light, 100% opacity.|
|Add your text and brushes. I used brushes by terra_katta and ingenu0us.|
|And finally, I took this gradient (by lavaliere), flipped it vertically, and added it to the icon and set it to Lighten, 50% opacity. And we're done!|
