    I can't believe that few lines turned out to be like this... but good job with the video, I liked it :)

    You were using your tablet in your video, weren't you? Or maybe I just don't know the hotkey to increase/decrease the size of brush.

    You seem to do a lot of unnecessary work with adjustment layers, the end result could just as well be achieved by painting a blue background and making progressively more red before more yellow strokes. Nonetheless, nice of you to share. And the icon turned out pretty nice.

    Thank you for teaching me on how to paint with more necessary work investment!

    You seem to miss the POINT. I did that because it is a TUTORIAL video, and shows an a step by step example with some repetition so people can understand the nifty erase layer trick and use it.

    It might look unnecessary work, and for small icon yes, but using that trick on large paintings, saves a ton of time, instead of recoloring everything by hand.

    Oh, yes, by all means, I agree!

    I did not intend to sound like I tried to teach you anything, but you sift through the adjustment layer parts too fast for anyone to notice what you're actually doing, so I thought the tutorial was something else. Maybe an example where the "erasing technique", if it can be called that, is more applicable would be better, though, because this icon in particular takes a lot more time because of it and I think it will confuse people more than teach. But oh well, sorry for causing unnecessary trouble.

    In the video I tried to show ALL techniques I ever use in creating an image, ickons too.
    But I almost never use that "erasing" technique unless it is a quick fix type a deal.

    Most important thing is painting image big, and watching that little navigator view in small size to see how the icon will look downsized.
    And painting it sharp, because at small size small lines will blend them selves.

    Some day will make better video.

    I liked the video a lot :smile: Only thing I wondered about was that I would just drag the layers for the icon borders (since there is no need to copy them and then paste them on the icon you made, when you have both open you can just drag it from one to another without problems).

    The trick about looking at the small one while painting and to consider how the blend anyway is very useful and something I tend to forget, where I paint with the final in mind all the time, even while its big - hence much more blurred at the end.
    Thanks for posting it and also had fun trying to guess what was going on in the background.
