June is the month where iconmakers on LJ run the popular "Ask The Maker" activity. I thought we could make our third activity centered around icon tutorials and iconmaking guides.

I have prepared a poll for this:

Poll #18477 Activity #3 - Ask The Maker
This poll is closed.
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 14

Seeking concrit: These aren't exactly new (I've been taking a break and using simpler starting images for a bit) but here are some of my attempts at color-manipulation. Same base image, same crop.

Thank you!

I hadn't tried Levels or Contrast—I think I got the red version by tweaking the color balance, which exaggerated the red traces in the background—and I think those tools are going to be very useful for faded images like this one.
