Greetings! One tutorial for Challenge 114 coming up. While I kept careful notes that make it sound like I knew where I was going with this from the first moment, let me say that my best icon technique is "try things until something works" and that's definitely where I went with this one.

This icon was created using Photoshop CS5, along with some outside textures (I'll label them as I go). The details are behind the cut... )

If I am not clear enough on any step, or you would like clarification for any reason, please ask. It is quite possible that I may have missed mentioned something!

Hi all, and thank you for voting for this icon. It was made in Photoshop CS5 on a Mac, and uses Gradient Map, Levels and Colour Fill, so all quite translatable, I'm sure.

This is way late and I am pressed for time today, but I thought that's better than nothing, and it's a very simple icon anyway.

I use GIMP 2.6. Unfortunately, GIMP doesn't save the history.

As a reference, this was the finished icon:

I created my icon in Photoshop CS5 Extended, though it should definitely be translatable into at least other versions of photoshop.

Hope this is helpful to someone!

Thank you for the votes, everyone—though I wonder if I insinuated myself into first place by avoiding the challenge of the snowboarder! Still, I did manage to do some different things this time, so I hope this tutorial will be of interest. Icon was made in PS CS5 on a Mac, and uses a couple of filters as well as standard things.
