Hi ^^

:bulletpink: Program Used: Photoshop

:bulletpink: I always work on 50x50 pixel, 300 DPI resolution. I zoom the icon to 100% and work on all details closely.
:bulletpink:I use my own pre-made base.
:bulletpink:I'm not good in explaining so, I decide to put some steps of my icon :heart:
:bulletpink:I hope this will be helpful <3
:bulletpink:If you need, feel free to ask me > u < :heart: <3
F.A.Q.
:bulletpink: How can I do transparent Background?
In Photoshop when you create a new canvas file, choose "Transparent background" instead of "white background" >u<
:bulletpink: How can I create transparent background on another program?
I don't know sorry ;u; try to search some tutorials of your favorite program around DA ;w; <3
:bulletpink: How Photoshop works?
Sorry but I'm not able to explain how the program works ;u; sorry!<3333

I'm bad but
what's a DPI resolution and how do you change it?
Ferilisa's avatar
Idk if you know by now buts its basically the quality of your work. You change when you press "make new canvas" or whatever t usually says your going to see the size and resolution, the standard resolution is 72, but that is not usually good for art work so you want to change that to 300 :)

Hey, I have a question!
I have a simple icon, and I want to upload it to my Deviant, but every icon have a "code", right?

Woah. so im trying to do a sketch for one of my characters, but uh, everytime i try to do the eyes, its just a bunch of pixels, is my canvas too small? @_@ (im on the 50x50 and 300dpi, is it supposed to be like this?)
TheDevastatedAngel's avatar
Don't too much details on the eyes. Whenever I made an icon, I would usually give the eyes less details if i'm working on a 50x50 pixel with 300 DPI. Sketch the eyes, base color, shadow and highlights. I hope that helps.
X3snowangel's avatar
Yeah, thank you! :)

i have a question!!! i tried to make a icon for myself in photoshop elements 9 and it was a 50x50 and all, but it told me the file size was too big (it had to be a minimum of 15 KB while mine was around 47...) do you know how i can fix that? 
Mimru's avatar
you probably did too much colors in it or too mane animation frames >u< try to make it less huge!
