Re-Colored: Dream Fullfilled  
This is one of those lovely by-products of me doing icons. Because I don't start out like typical iconers (at least I don't think it's typical given how all the tutorials are), I always 'do my thing' with the larger image and then make it 100x100, and I end up with cool results that I also want to keep in their larger format. This is one such result:

I like this. The red is such a wonderful counterpoint to his uniform.

That's how I make icons too. Do people do everything in the 100x100 size?

Thank you!

I was actually surprised by the red appearing since the texture is simply the SGC wall behind him in the original photo. I'd copied a small strip of it and duplicated it until it made up the width of the picture, then I played with blending the layers.

Do people do everything in the 100x100 size?

From the looks of it on the icon tutorial comms, yes. There are a great deal of people offering up textures that are only 100x100. I honestly don't see anyone can work with that size.

It's nice to hear that I'm not the only one that enjoys working with the larger format first.

(sorry for edits on this comment, i'm still waking up)

Agreed. I can't see what I want to work with and there's so little room to do things. Plus I find that it just looks better when it's scaled down instead of all done right there.
