5. Continue to change the blue elements
Select the Lasso tool and create some arbitrary shapes on top of the blue elements. To add them to the selection, hold the Shift key while creating shapes.

Applying the same technique that we used earlier, subtract the necessary areas of selection with the Oval Tool, as shown in the figure. Then fill the selection with white:
Reduce the “Opacity” of both layers to 20%:

Step 57
While holding down the CTRL key, click on the “shield outer” layer to select it. Create a new layer under it called “shield shadow”, and fill the selection with black. Then, using the command Edit> Transform Path> Zoom, squeeze the black shape down: Continue reading
