Make Flat Shapes Round
How to Quickly Make Flat Shapes Look 3D with Layer Styles
With Easter just round the corner, we have an easy tutorial to show you how to make these Easter Egg brushes look bright and realistic.
You can get the brushes here.
Choose an egg and paint it on a new layer of your canvas. In the Layers Palette, click on “fx” at the bottom and select “Gradient Overlay”.
To add the shadow, make a round selection on a new layer beneath the egg, and colour it black.
Lighten the shadow in the Layers Palette by moving the Opacity slider to 40%.
To delete the shadow from on top of the egg, select a circle to cover the bottom of the egg, make a Layer Mask, and then delete.
