Deux Fancy Icon Tutorial #1  
Okay! Our first tutorial featuring the lovely & talented Billie Piper!

Deux Fancy Icon Tutorial #1: Billie Piper
For: Photoshop
Translatable?: No... not yet anyway

1. Okay first we have out base, which looks like so:

2. Duplicate the base once and set it to Soft Light at 100%

3. Take this texture, from fightstarr and set it to Screen at 100%

There was a bit of it in her face so I just erased a small bit:

4. Next, we're going to use this texture from spooky_window and set it to Soft Light at 100%

5. Take this gradient and set it to Soft Light at 100%

6. Take the same texture from Step #4 and duplicate it, setting it to Multiply at 100%

7. Time for selective coloring! Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Selective Coloring:

C: -35
M: +30
Y: +10
B: -10

C: -10
M: +5
Y: -30
B: -5

C: +10
M: +5
Y: +5
B: 0

8. Another selective coloring layer (Layer > Adjustment Layer > Selective Coloring):

C: -10
M: +10
Y: 0
B: +20

9. Go to Layer > Adjustment Layer > Brightness Contrast:

Brightness: +15
Contrast: +10

10. Make a new layer and fill it with #ada1a1

11. I added some black text (settting it to color burn at 100% but you can do whatever), compiled it and sharpened it > fading the sharpen to 30% and out came my final result!

I'd love to see if this worked out for you all and I hope you find this helpful!

That's a lovely icon - great tutorial. I love that it has effects and textures and isn't just coloring. :)
