#31 - Aoi Miyazaki Tutorial.  
Going from:


Begin with base:

Duplicate your base and set the layer to SCREEN (my icon's opacity is at 84%):

Create a new layer filled with #78d7fa and set the layer to (COLOR) BURN 52%:


Go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>COLOR BALANCE, enter in:
MIDTONES: -40, -11, 8
SHADOWS: 3, 5, -7
HIGHLIGHTS: 5, -7, 5

Create ANOTHER COLOR BALANCE layer, enter in:
MIDTONES: -34, -11, 8
SHADOWS: 7, -21, 2

Create a new layer filled with #060d27 and set the layer to EXCLUSION:


Go to Layer>New Adjustment Layer>BRIGHTNESS/CONTRAST, enter in:

Go to Layers>New Adjustment Layer>HUE/SATURATION, enter in:
MASTER: 0, 11, 0
REDS: -7, 9, 0
GREENS: 3, 8, 0
MAGENTAS: 0, 5, 0

And it's done! Not too bad, although it is annoying to have to enter in all these numbers. If it looks too bleh, just mess with the numbers a bit and it will probably look alright. It may come out too bright for some, so just mess with the BRIGHTNESS/CONTRAST layer a bit.

Questions, comments, results, friending... yeah.

I'm so happy this has no selective coloring and LOOKS AMAZING.
Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you liked it! Actually, it originally had selective coloring, but I changed it to the two color balance layers, and it still ended up looking nice. I'm happy that non-photoshop users are able to use it!

Thank you for the tutorial! I changed it a bit, using a pink burn layer instead of blue and then messed with the saturation levels and ended up with the icon I'm using now. I love it! :D
