2. How to Create a Shield for the Emblem Design
Step 1
Now that you know what an emblem is, let's learn how to make an emblem in Photoshop.
Pick the Ellipse Tool (U) from your toolbar and create a 460 x 530 px shape. Remove the Stroke color applied to this shape and change the Fill color to R=0 G=156 B=255.
With this shape selected, switch to the Convert Point Tool from your toolbar and simply click on the bottom anchor point.
