Step 3. Draw the dark and the light for arousing reflection, with the specific method that is to use the Shape Tool for drawing a circle, and then create a smaller circular selection and remove its middle section for getting a ring form, together with the Blur Tool and Eraser Tool to wipe the useless parts, and with the Pen Tool to trace another dark part.
Step 5. After adding the style, the smaller circle in the middle can have some sunken effect. Then outline a simple S-shape wave with the Pen Tool, and draw the connection part of chiaroscuro reflection on the small circle, filling it with black. The effect of the purple circle can be created with the Eraser Tool and Smudge Tool. Finally, select the part outside of the small circle, and delete the extra black.
Step 9. Draw the inner details of the scene, namely, the parts of highlight and shadow, and set its style.
Finally, draw a gradual transition in the inner layer, and set it as follows:
Afterwards, apply the moderate Gaussian Blur.
Step 11. Continue drawing the highlight details, and draw an ellipse with the application of horizontal Motion Blur, vertical Motion Blur and Gaussian Blur, and then set that layer’s style to Overlay.
Step 12. Finally, draw a large reflective area, and use the Shape Tool for getting the elliptical path, and then click the bottom anchor with the Path Selection Tool and drag it up for getting a squashed elliptical shape.
