Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 600×500 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with white color shade. Now make a new layer, using the Brush Tool with a large soft brush paint a black spot on your canvas. Then in a new layer draw an ellipse with #6AB9E7 color shade and 200 x 156 px dimensions on the black spot.
