Setting Up Your Scene
1. First, let us open a new document. To open a new document you will go to File > New, when you click on New, a new document will open. As you can see in the image above, we will first name the file and after that, we will input the sizes of the artboard. One important thing that we should always remember is that we need to keep the color mode in the document to RGB, so that the image looks like an original image.
2. Right now, you can see two parts in this image, first part is the colorful background and the other part is the speakers. So let us first start working on the speakers.
3. To make the speaker lets first take a circle as you can see in the image.
4. After making the circle, we will put gradient in it. See the image shown here.
5. After filling the circle with gradient, it will appear like the image shown above. Let’s proceed and make one more circle, but remember that this circle will be slightly smaller than the other circle, which we have made. We will put gradient in this circle too. See the image shown below.
