Fitness Logo Photoshop Tutorial

Now the only thing that is missing is the legs. We will again use the Ellipse tool to draw the legs. Select the Ellipse tool and draw an ellipse just below the body portion of our character.

Duplicate this shape by pressing Ctrl+J together. Now rotate it and reduce its size. Place this layer as shown in the screenshot below.

Group, merge and duplicate these 2 layers. Rotate the new layer and place it as shown in the screenshot.

Our character is ready. Group and merge all layers. Now, we will add an orb to this shape. For that select Ellipse Tool to draw a circle over our character.

Press shift+ctrl+{ to send it back. Now control click on its layer name to select it and move the selection upwards.

Keep the selection active and press shift+ctrl+n to create a new layer. Select light gray as foreground and white as background color. Fill the selection with the Gradient Tool. You should have something like in the screenshot below.

Now we will add a white outline to our character. For that, right click on its layer name and select blending options. Under blending options, select stroke. Set the color to white for the stroke and set the stroke width around 4-5 pixels. Add some text and our logo is ready.

Of course if you like you can add colors or some effects to the logo but this tutorial illustrates mostly how you can use the simple shapes to create a nice looking logo.
