HP - Weasley Twins
I never thought I would do this, but my friend amortentia_gal requested a Tutorial for two of my icons from this icons post. Since I did saved their .psp file, I decided to do it for her and anyone else that might be curious. If there is something you do not understand, feel free to ask any question :)

I'm using Paint Shop Pro 7 (sometimes version 9) but everything can be done in any other program. (well, there might be one exception for one Effect, but it is not important, and I suggest some alternatives)

» Draco in Hell : (really easy)

to this

1. Create a New Raster Layer and Fill it with the color F8BF24 then set it to Multiply 30%

2. Duplicate that colored Layer and set it to Saturation 30%
3. Duplicate it again and set it to Burn 15%
4. Duplicate it one more time and set it to Dodge 3%
5. Add this light texture made by neke for the effect of "Flames in Hell" set to Screen 100% then Merge/Flatten all Layers, and you are done.


» Weasley Twins in orange colors : (again, it's really easy)

to this

1. Duplicate the image as a new Layer, click Effects > Enhance Photo > Fade Correction : set to 45. (but that's not and obligation if you don't have this option in your program. You can "Ajust Levels" instead or set it to Screen 50% then Duplicate that Layer and set it to Soft Light) The base should now look like this :

2. Add this Light Texture by uglybusiness and set it to Screen 100%

3. Add this Texture by wash_when_dirty and set it to Soft Light 100% (the Texture was more grainy, so I used the "Blur" Effect to make it look softer)

4. Duplicate that Texture and set it to Soft Light 40% then Merge/Flatten all Layers, and you are done.

Please do not copy/redistribute those 2 icons as your own, use those Tutorials with your own bases. Feel free to show me your results ! I hope it was useful to someone, have fun :)

Thanks the Draco one worked better then the Weasley one for some reason. Probably since I use Paint.NET. But still thanks loved how the Draco one turned out.

You def need to make more of these =]

You're welcome :) It was fun to make those tutorials, so yeah I'll probably make more. Mostly if someone ask me for a tutorial about a specific icon, like it was for those 2.
