cupcake tutorial 1  

Done in; Photoshop CS3
Translatable; For those who have photoshop
Contains; Selective coloring

Step 1-
a. As most tutorials start, you're going to pick your base, crop it, rotate it, blur/smudge anything necessary. For this specific tutorial, I'd suggest bases with creamy or pinkier tones. Remember that anything in here is subject to change and up for interpretation, based on your icon. So do what looks best for you.

Step 2-
a. Go to layer>new fill layer>solid color
b. Enter the code 795d5d
c. Set it to difference at 17% opacity

Step 3-
a. Go to layer>new adjustment layer>selective color
b. reds; -100, 14, 29, 0
yellows; -100, 0, -21, 0
whites; 12, -26, -15, -30

Step 4-
a. Now take this gradient (made by me) and paste it right to the top
b. Set it to color burn at 50% opacity

Step 5-
a. Now go to layer>new fill layer>solid color
b. Enter the color e295c6
c. Set it to overlay at 40% opacity

Step 6-
a. Now take this texture by magiclove_l
b. Set it to pin light at 100% opacity

Step 7-
a. Duplicate your base and drag it to the top
b. Go to image>adjustments>desaturate then go to image>adjustments>invert
c. Set that layer to difference at 50% opacity

Step 8-
a. Take this texture by esquaire
b. Set it to darken at 100% opacity

Step 9-
a. This last part is optional, but take this texture (by me) or any other tiny text
b. Set it to screen at 100% opacity

And you're done! Feel free to leave any comments, questions, or concerns here; I love
feedback. Just remember to credit the original creator of any texture, if you use one.

If you like my work and want to use anything, feel free! But please
