Lets have a look at the Final Result of our today’s Tutorial, M&M Chocolate Design in Photoshop:

Step 1:

Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 800×600 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with #242424 color shade using the Paint Bucket Tool.

Step 2:

Create a new layer set, and name it MM (Layer > New > New Layer Set). In a new layer, draw a large brown circle with #513319 color shade and 204×204 px dimensions. Use the Fixed Size option inside the Ellipse Options to create the exact shape. Type in the dimensions in the setting box.

Step 3:

Apply an Inner Shadow, Inner Glow, and Bevel and Emboss layer styles to the brown circle layer.
