Colorflow Icon tutorial by tRiBaLmArKiNgS Colorflow Icon tutorial by tRiBaLmArKiNgS
Here is my very 1st tutorial ever.

I've had many people ask me how to make these folders and for help, so here's the tut.

I hope it's all clear and easily understood - please forgive me if its not, I'm still a Photoshop amateur myself.

In the download you will get :
The tutorial in JPEG format
The tutorial in PDF format
The PSD template
& 2 example icons

If you download please :+fav: so other people will come across it more easily and maybe get some use out of this too.

*UPDATED 30 SEP 09 - ADDED STEPS TO'WRAP' IMAGES AROUND THE FRONT OF THE FOLDER*

IF YA USE THIS & START MAKING YOUR OWN I'D LOVE TO SEE WHAT YA COME UP WITH SO I CAN ADD THEM TO MY :+fav:'S (I COLLECT ALL COLORFLOW ICONS) & ALSO ADD A LINK TO YOU IN MY FUTURE COLORFLOW ICONS LIKE THE LINKS BELOW

This was the quickest and simplest tutorial I've seen explaining something that is not so simple to handle, the Colorflow icon Layout. This does not mean that the explanation was simplistic or poor. Rather, it was extremely effective because it is direct, and go exactly to the relevant points that should be thought of in time to create this type of icon.
The artist knew perfectly explain the creation of the icon and as if that were not enough even gave two examples of styles that can be used in its creation. For an icon that is made from a ready model, I think there couldn't be a more objectiv and straightforward tutorial for people who have never created this kind of icon. I think a summary so well explained just could from this brilliant artist who is tRiBaLmArKiNgS
What do you think?
