On the next level we’ll represent the highlight on the toy decoration, choosing the same Ellipse Tool (U) for drawing the highlight’s surface. After that we’ll press Alt button, while using the same tool to move off the unnecessary elements on the upper part of the highlight.

    This looks like a great design, but I wasn’t able to complete it. I made it to the first Eclipse Tool U and couldn’t go any further as I couldn’t figure out how to get the color into the circle. The instructions were not clear and complete.

    It was a decent design though the tutorial was sometimes hard to follow. Be more specific next time, other than that it was fun to do and came out great!

    Was really looking forward to doing this – but what a pity, the instructions are impossible to follow. Thanks anyway to the poster for wanting to share this – but can anyone improve the instructions?

    Great project but hard to follow. Especially the part where you use ALT and cut something out. never work for me and didn’t understand. my finished version looks crappy. oh well, thanks for the effort just the same. Thank you.
