  • Circular Icon Making Tutorial

    I received a couple requests for a tutorial on making circular roleplaying icons, I’m aware of a couple methods but this one is my preferred (and the simplest in my opinion) way of doing it.

    This is another tutorial that should easily be applied easily to Gimpshop.

    Step #1

    Open your base icon; for how to make a base icon read this tutorial here.

    If you have a psd to apply this is the time to do it.

    You’re going to go to Layer > New > New Layer and create a new transparent layer, then after you unlock your base layer by dragging the little lock symbol to the tiny trashcan you’re going to need to move the base layer on top of the transparent one.

    Step #2

    Now using the Ecliptical Marquee Tool make a 100 x 100 (or whatever size icon you’re doing) circle and center it on your top layer like below:

    image

    Using right click the middle of that circle and in the menu that opens chose Select Inverse. This will select the whole area outside the circle like in the image below:

    image

    Step #3

    This is the satisfying part where we hit delete and watch our icon take shape…Ta Da!

    All that’s left to do is merge your layers and save as a .png and you have yourself a circle icon. I have this saved as an action for quicker use, it cuts my iconing in half.

    It’s been a long time coming, but here we are, my second tutorial! This one is very similar to my older one, but there’s a year of experience between the two, so I hope that this shows my improvement at least a little? Either way, the tutorial is under the cut!

    ➤ a screencap (the less dark possible)

    ➤ textures, doodles, clipping masks and coloring psds

    ➤ basic knowledge of photoshop (not for beginners)

    the main focus of this tutorial will be on the use of a galaxy texture/layer and the function of clipping masks!

  • Here’s a quick, detailed, step by step guide as to how I make icons!  

    All you need is:

    • paint.net (free image editing program, download here)
    • a high quality screencap (the bigger, the better!)
    • the website befunky.com (it’s free, but you can pay for premium features; i use the free plan)

    (alternatively, you could use any image editing software, as they should all have the same basic features)

  • So today I am going to show you how to make an action for your icons. The downside is unless you have color lockup you have to remake your psd coloring so it is a lot of stops and starting the recording back up just to make the coloring again from someone else’s psd because an action does not take adding a psd well at all

    Please do not repost my action or anything. If anyone asks you how you did this link them to the tutorial, etc! If you need help just ask!

    Download the action right over here (allthingsmissedrph / deviantart )

    There was a tutorial on here just recently posted that sort of follows the same things but I tweaked mine a bit and I think made it more user friendly with more caps to explain things, went step by step for even beginners and am including a version for you to try out and use or have as more of a following this and this sort of thing

  • ok i’m not super great at making icons but an anon requested a tutorial for my icons so i will post my process! it’s good for beginners i think (even tho i have been making these icons this way since 2016 lol) 

    you’ll need:

    • Photoshop CS5 or higher (I have CS5 which is quite old, I know, but I pirated it many years ago oops)
    • relatively hq pics to make icons out of
    • a psd (if you need some, tumblr.com/tagged/psd is what i periodically check for some). 
    • an action (preferably sharpening action, since that is what i use)
    • a texture if you want
    • you, yourself, and you, and i guess this tutorial

    i’m going to be making this as a beginner’s tutorial so it’s gonna go about as in-depth as  one can be! it’s gonna include a lot so feel free to skip a lot of it if you are already pretty well-versed in photoshop or icon-making.

    ITS SO LONG IM SO SORRY IT IS SO VERY IN-DEPTH I’VE EXPLAINED EVERY POSSIBLE THING I COULD’VE

    but also if you have any questions at all, please let me know. i love teaching people stuff.

    example of the icons that i make:

  • how i make my icons (for rp)! aka some tips/a tutorial ish thing.

    so there are tons of icon tutorials out there, but a lot of them have their focus on dash icons rather than rp icons, when i was looking for rp icon tutorials, therefore this. i am definitely not a ps expert, i’ve learned most of what i know by trial and error and various tutorials, so this is far from anywhere near comprehensive, just some… simple tips? yeh. instead of using premade psds i edit every icon coloring from scratch, i pondered on whether to make my own psds but i love to change things around too much i guess, but if you wanna make ones faster (and probably prettier sksksksk not gonna lie) there are tons of free psds out there!

    i use photoshop cs6 and homeofthenutty.com for supernatural screencaps.
