This tutorial was written by Monti on September 5th 2013. It's concept is copyrighted to Monti. Any creation you make from my ideas are yours. You may print out this tutorial for your own personal use, but please do not copy it in any way to put online, pass out or rewrite without my permission or worse yet attempt to claim as your own.

For this tutorial you will need 

Paint Shop Pro

The following Colour Chart
This is nice and easy, just two colours. 
Save and open in PSP.
This colour chart is just a guide, feel free to use whatever colours you want.
Ok we are ready to start.

REMEMBER TO SAVE OFTEN 

Step 1: - Outline
We will be starting with the outline using the count shown below: 
The outline below has been resized a lot so you can see it clearly.
To make this easier I have numbered all pixels over 1.
The counts in blue are the pixel spaces between the pads, so you can line them up properly.
Open a new image 100 x 100 and fill with white so you can see what you are working on.
Add a new raster layer and select the brush tool with the following settings.
Size: 1 - Hardness, Opacity and Density: 100 
Zoom in to about 800% - 1000% 
Set your foreground to colour 1 on the colour chart (#000000) and start at the top of the large main pad.
When the main pad is finished move it towards the bottom of the image and draw in the four smaller pads.
______________________________

Step 2: - Fills
When the outline is complete select your magic wand with the following settings.
With your Magic Wand on the settings shown above click inside the main large pad.
Set your Foreground to Colour 2 (#636363) on the colour chart and flood fill this selection. 
Keep selected. 
Selections float, Effects 3D effects, Cutout with the following settings
Vertical: 0
Horizontal: 0
Opacity: 100
Blur: 8
Shadow colour: #000000
Make sure fill interior with colour is UNchecked. 
Deselect.
______________________________

Select your magic wand with the same settings and click inside the left small Paw Print.
Fill this selection with Colour 2 (#636363) on the colour chart. 
Keep selected. 
Selections float, Effects 3D effects, Cutout with the following settings
