    Basic Icicle Tutorial

    In this tutorial, I will show you how to easily create an icicle on Photoshop CS3.

    1. Create a 320x320 document, and fill it black.

    2. Using the elliptical marquee tool, draw a circle and fill it with white

    3. Go to Filters > Stylize > Extrude

    For this example I used these settings, but feel free to play around with the size and depth to your liking.

    It should now look like this.

    4. Go to Filters > Distort > Polar Coordinates
    From here, check the box which says "Polar to Rectangular", and click OK.

    You now should have something like this.

    5. Press Ctrl+U, where you should be directed to the 'Hue/Saturation' window. Select an icy blue that you wish to colour the icicles.

    You should have something like this.

    And here, you are done.

    I know this is somewhat basic, but it may help someone.

    Comments appreciated.

    Lol, if you didn't tell me they were icicles, I definately wouldn't know they're icicles.

    They look like big spiky things. Maybe make it thinner and rounder at some places?

    Looks more like a really bad C4D or fractual.
