This isn't for Scout, but how do you make your icons?
I use an amazing, FREE neat thing called Paint.Net!
It’s simply wonderful. I use it for all my icons and editing needs.
But specifically, how I make my icons is taking the comic pannels / fanart I wish to use as my icons. I thorw it into Paint.net, cut it roughly into a square and then edit out anything that could make it look bad ( for ex., speech bubbles from the comics). I then keep cutting the picture until it looks like an ok square to me and resize it to 100 x 100. By then, my Icon looks like this!:
After that, I slam onto it (on a different layer) a one coloured overlay, the same size as all my icons:
It’s super simple but? I literally made that in like a few minutes and I thought it looked nice so I went with it. Anyway, I set the full layer (with the red square) on “Multiply”. Then, I go back to the first layer / the icon you’ll be using as your rp icon, and mess with it’s hue and saturation until it looks good. In the end, I get this:
I… Honestly do it the easiest way possible. I mean, it doesn’t look bad and I actually really like it. I hope you didn’t expect anything mind blowing, Photoshop C 8719873, special particle gif effect kind of tutorial. I just slam on a one coloured overlay, press multiply and pray tbh
