Photorealistic Vinyl Design

 
Select the circle ( the one that is in the center ) - and apply a small gradient tweak - for more colors.

Next step: Complex lighting.

I have discovered a very good way to lightened up the 2d surfaces. It was quite easy - I've just used lighter ( white this time ) gradients on a top layer.

More to that I'm going to decorate my lightened surface with this: I'm using basic round rough brush.

Those who are lucky to have a tablet will get better result I think. Just erase.

I recommend you to save this brush as a New Brush Preset - it will be saved with settings too. We will also need this brush to paint with.

Create a new layer chose this brush - (your saved brush) - choose white color - lower that opacity to about 80% and paint some of these dots.

Some black maybe too (on a new layer).

Opacity to the layer that has back spots is very low - represents shadows.

Next step: lighting technique.

This is the basic principal of 2d soft lighting: it is based on soft edged gradients
  
or brushes- you can even change the color of the lights. So just create one.

Oh yeah almost forgot about the whole in the center. Make a new layer and tap just once with black color brush.

And I sake of realism - just apply inner shadow. I've also applied noise filter to the color circle in the center so it might feel real- like paper.

All the purple layers are the foreground (2d) lights.

Some of you seem to be missing the point. This isn't about going step by step. It's about taking what's being shown to you and using it to come up with impressive art of your own. Any monkey can copy someone else's work. Where's the fun in imitating someone else?
