Ask the Maker: Complex theme






Ok, Hi people!
This topic is going to be about complex icons
I´m going to divide this on to 3 themes: crops,effects, composition.
I hope this would help you to be a better icon maker< 3
this theme is a suggestion from magicrubbish

THEMES:

Crops: this depend on what you want to accomplishment with your icon
For example:


On this icons the crop is make to stand outt a specific part of the icon(half of the face, eyes).


Effects: this took a different level, if your going to work on b/w pics, or vintage, etc.
My guide here, is to look up to the challenge or what you want to burn out of the icon (fear, calid, saturation, shadows, contrasts).
For example:


On this icons, there exist a few manipulation, on the first one shes cracking( you can look to brushes, textures, this usually helps me to look up to new effects I want to apply. On the second one, the male guy is on the background, and up this cap is a gradient map and them, the textures and the girl. I like to my icons look properly right, shadows, reflections, effects, so be careful how you applied this.

Composition:: Ok this is dependent from the photo to the textures and the effect, all this is connected. I like to use photos where the artist is walking, and different perspective than the usual fort shot. Is simple if you want something complex, the photo has to have with something different.



On this icons I took some photos of artists that are on different position than the typical frontal one. So if it´s floating, you can add some wings, like a falling angel (#4), or his walking out space (#2), really depends on what you want to accomplish and the theme. The background can be pixelated, blur or another effect that you would like to put(#1).

(I made a banner to make it look seriously lol )
Well, Hello my name is Angela, and this iniciative start for a petition of magicrubbish
But is open to anyone...


I would like to teach anyone interested on learning on my technique to make icons.
You can put on the comments any icon that you would like to learn, or if you want to learn anything like how to select screencaps, crops, coloring, complex icons, palette of colors, composition, use of texture, etc I would like to help you.

I need to clear out that my style is the reflection of my creativity, I make icons like with a theme of futuristic, because
I love that theme,
and the composition is about how I feel about a theme mostly.
I basically like to play on photoshop...



This is not about to copy my style, but to learn how to find your inner sense on design...



LET´S HAVE SOME FUN!!!

Since I saw the challenge, I loved the idea to pay a tribute to the uniques movies
that open my vision on art and makes me aprecciated all the possibilities of the art itself (cinematography,
make up, scene production, cgi effects, visual effects, sound effects, etc)
A few of this characters are my favs on the cinema history (not all them are here ahhaha)
But I love the interpretation of the actor on the character, pure art !
