Additional comments? look at the submission post for textures.

Copy and paste the icon and align it to the left.
Now use the gradient tool and use colors #000000 and #2F5674 to fill the background.
Use the texture found on the submission post [it was half of this. Duplicate the texture, flip horizontally, align side by side, and merge together. Duplicate the merged layer and set the top layer to 69% Soft Light and the bottom layer to 19% Lighten.
Crop the top part of the original icon and pate the parts with the eyes. Edit the image with #C6CFD0 to fill in the extra space near the person's eyes.
Use a blur tool and make a white line across the banner to complete the white line from the icon.
Duplicate the white line layer to make it bolder.
Select the entire banner and Edit>Stroke #FFFFFF, 2px, Inside.
Add text and you're done! :D


THIS TYPE OF BANNER MAKING IS GOOD FOR: People who want mostly brushed banners.... or if you run out of ideas.
