Berlin Tut  
Time for a new tutorial. This time, I'll be taking a break from using a Richard base. Shocking, I know.

This time, I'll use this base, made from one of the photos I took on my recent trip to Berlin. Oh god, how I miss it...*Tears up*

*Ahem* ...Weiter.

1. Sharpen your base as necessary.

2. For mine, I did two steps to prepare it.
First, duplicate the base. Color balance it to a nice moderate orange color. Set to screen, 50%

3. Duplicate the base again and bring to the top. Set to soft light, 62%

4. Create a new layer, fill with #0C0B3B and set to exclusion, 82%

5. Create another layer and fill with #B1DCF5. Set to burn, 42%

6. Another layer. Fill with #C2A772. Set to soft light, 48%

7. Create a Curves adjustment layer.
RBG: 197, 207

Red: Pt. 1: 97, 88
Pt. 2: 182, 198

8. Add this texture from rainharbour (for my icon, I mirrored it) and set to multiply, 100%

9. If you want to lighten it up a bit, create a new curves layer.
RBG: 164, 178

10. If you want a little more depth to the image, add this texture by washwhendirty and set to burn. Adjust the opacity as you see fit.

11. Add any brushes, extra textures, etc. and you're done :)

Nice result, hope it'll work with some nature icons, too. The coloring is great.
