Colouring: spuzz: http://community.livejournal.com/iconsby_spuzz/17958.html
^ Pretty much the tutorial I used most as my first PS experiment. It's from 2007 and the results may be too simple in icon trend of 2010, but for a graphic novice like me it was very easy to follow and helpful, also effective. Similar tutorials by spuzz I also tried: http://community.livejournal.com/iconsby_spuzz/18814.html | http://community.livejournal.com/iconsby_spuzz/20256.html

Colouring: weisy: http://community.livejournal.com/goodbyetuesday/17389.html
^ One of my favourite icon makers back when I started using LJ. And that pink colour fill is a lifesaver! I don't know what to do without it.

Colouring: dabbisch: http://community.livejournal.com/dabbischdes/1341.html
^ I totally failed at this, but I'll definitely try it again as I really like the result and dabbisch's icons.

Colouring: pureskies: http://pureskies.livejournal.com/59951.html (Super easy, one step only)

Colouring: remus: http://community.livejournal.com/creamhugs/10942.html

Colouring: crucified: http://community.livejournal.com/phonography_x/19348.html (w/PSD)
^ Another tutorial I've been using A LOT from late September. Provides great results when meets 'right' caps.
