Sharp as shit! Nice job Kris!
please share :3
wow that wood!
Lovely work!! tis Great!!!!!!!!!
To make the wood, I used one of Tileables' wood patterns and chose parts of the grain that looked best and masked them at each side (for a total of 4 different layers but of all the same pattern with different masks), cutting each section off at each corner of the icon. At each corner, I'd rotate the grain so it would face the same direction as the side of the icon. The pattern is then set to overlay at 80% fill. If the pattern is too dark, I generally like to adjust its Brightness and Contrast beforehand, and if I've resized it, I like applying an Unsharp Mask.
The coloring of it is just a solid "seashell-ish" tan plus three layers of Levels adjustments (two for highlights and one for shadow - masked of course, circle selection + some feathering) to get the lighting on the wood.
As for the subtle lined pattern on the wood that I added, you can get that by making new rounded rectangles with a fill of 0% with an inner glow of a medium-tannish color set to Multiply on a low opacity setting. You skip every other pixel, and make another rounded rectangle with the same layer style. I started one pixel under the very edges of the icon, so my rounded rect radius would be 19, then i skip one, and then my rounded rect radius would be 17, and so on.
Generally as a rule of thumb, the number of pixels away you are from the edge of the radius is the number you subtract to get your new radius.
Full radius of larger shape - number of pixels you are from the edge of that larger shape = new radius.
Anyway, thanks for all the comments guys!
thanks for sharing your technique :)
Love how you used a blurred version of the Lion Background as your bg.
;) Awesome work.
