Creating an icon for Eaw/Foc By THX1138 Hello! • Ok DV wanted an icon tutorial, so here it is. • Today, we will be making a Jacen Solo Icon. You will need… • What we first need is the GIMP. Its like Photoshop, but free. If you have Photoshop, then this tutorial probably useless to you. Google it, download it, install it. Play around with I for a bit to get used to the interface. • Get a reference picture. For this tutorial we will be using the one downloadable here: http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/f/f7/Japa nese_joinerKing-Jacen_Solo.jpg Step 1 • Now, open up GIMP, and create a new image, 50x50 pixels, with transparency as the background. • Then open up the picture in GIMP. Now choose the select rectangular regions tool, and select around his face like this: Step 2 • Copy the selection [Ctrl+C], and paste it in the 50x50 image. • It should look something like this: Step 3 • Now, as you can see, the face does not fit. so we need to scale it down. Select the scale tool. In the toolbox, make sure the keep aspect box is checked, like so: Step 4 • Go back to the 50x50 image and click on the part of the picture that is visible. A scale box should pop up that looks like this. Step 5 • Edit the values to look like this: Step 6 • You now need to zoom in. Hold shift and scroll the mouse wheel. In the toolbox, select the eraser, and and put the settings as so: Step 7 • Then click Scale. you should have something like this: Step 8 • Then erase around the head. Or you can do that before scaling it down. Its a matter of personal preference. erasing before takes a bit longer. • You should have something like this: Step 9 • That's it for regular Units, but since Jacen is a hero, we need to do a little more. • Choose the select elliptical regions button in the toolbox. select over Jacen’s face so it looks like this: Step 10 • Choose the select rectangular regions tool, and click anywhere on the page, but not in the selected area. • Do that again Step 11 • Go To FILE>SAVE AS • save it as i_button_jacen.tga • in the box that comes up, adjust the settings to match those in the picture That’s it. • The Final Product: • Adding it into the game is another tutorial, coming soon.
