Tutorial requested by Twinker.
I use Photoshop Elements 6.0, so it's translatable to atleast photoshop.
Today we will be making this avatar.
This was my base. It's colors were dull, and slightly washed out looking, so I duplicated it, and set it at Soft Light, 100%.
Make a Hue/Saturation layer, +15.
Make a color fill layer. Fill it with DBFFFA, and set it to color burn, 100%.
Make another color fill layer. Fill it with 08112B, and set it to Exclusion, 100%.
Duplicate the base, and set it to Soft Light, 100%.
And finally, add another Hue/Saturation layer, +7.
And voila! The finished product:

I hope you find this tutorial useful, and I'd love to see what you guys made.

Pretty! I'd love to try it out, but the hex color in step two is missing a letter or a number. It's one too short ;]
