Subtle effects! I might consider making that ice less jarring, an make the red on the needle a brighter red and less red/orange. Great
Less jarring? Can you explain a little please? I'll try that out. Thanks for the critique!
I guess the snow looks a little grey, but plain white might be too much as well. Maybe put a texture overlay on it? Just some thoughts.
It is already an off white shade and has a texture overlay applied
Hmm. Maybe try transparency? Desaturate the green land underneath the snow?
Awesome job. How did you go about making the background in this shot?
The background of the icon? Or the preview?
Of the preview. The icon is superb as well!
I just made a 400x300 psd and created with a dark blue/black/grey background with a radial gradient (Looks like a faint spot light in the center) and just made a simple gloss looking floor/dock/whatever you would like to call it. Why do you ask? Thanks :3
I've always wanted to learn how to do it. I'll post my results up when I get around to making one similar to yours! Thank you for your thorough reply
It's just a lot of trial and error to get what you want and what you're satisfied with. Good luck!
