Create the Wonder Woman logo in Photoshop

Step 1
The first thing to do is to create the main form of the symbol of a miracle woman.
Step 2
The main secret is to put all the shapes on different layers. You can achieve this by copying and pasting, importing, selecting and creating layers from this selection. The main thing is that you have a separate layer for each part. We will apply some layer styles in the next steps.
Step 3
Select the lower, largest shape of the logo, (colored blue in my image). Then go to Layers> Layer Style> Emboss. Use the values ​​below. We will also add Texture, Inner Shadow, and Color Overlay.

In the “Texture” style, use a metal pattern. This is easy to do: use Google to find images with a metal texture. Open it in Photoshop and select everything, then go to Edit> Define Pattern. After that, you can use it in layer styles.
Step 4
Below is the first layer with the “Embossing” style applied to it. It is important to get sharp highlights and shadows. Repeat the same process for other parts and use different colors.
Step 5
Now that you have applied styles to all layers, remember to customize them. Please note that I use not only different colors, but also different settings for individual details. I also added a shadow to the two parts that are on top of the rest to give greater depth. Experiment with this.
Step 6
Now it will be a difficult part: adding a metal texture. I am sure that there are various ways to do this. But I went the way, which I considered the easiest. Select one of the shapes.
Step 7
Add a new layer and fill it with white.
Step 8
Then go to Filter> Appearance> Mezzo Tinto. In the settings, use the “Spot” type. Make sure that your background is set to white and black.
Step 9
After that, with the selection area still active, select Filter> Blur> Motion Blur. Use a large value for the Offset parameter. I have a huge image, so I used a value of 200 pixels.
Step 10
Since the original logo looks like coarse metal, you need to make the texture a little more rough. To do this, go to Image> Correction> Levels. Move the black level slider all the way to the right, and the white level slider to the left. The goal is to increase contrast. Use the image below for comparison.
Step 11
Change the blending mode to “Linear Dimmer” and experiment with opacity. I used about 10-30%.
Step 12
Duplicate the layer and move it down a couple of pixels, and then change the blending mode to “Lighten the base” with an opacity value of 80-100% depending on the color of the shape.
Step 13
For shapes that have different angles, I did the same thing, but with only one difference. I set different angles for motion blur depending on the angle of the shape. The secret is that you can use the Straight Lasso tool here to choose the right angle for transitions. The following shows how I made the first two parts of the bottom form.

Step 14
Repeat the same for other forms. For the top, you’ll have to do this three more times due to different angles.
Step 15
Group all the shapes into a folder, and then apply the Shadow layer style to this folder. You can also merge the folder if you want. I always forget that now you can add layer styles to folders.
Step 16
Create a new layer and add a mask in the shape of a logo. Then use the Brush tool to paint the sides and bottom with a soft black brush. I painted with 50% hardness. The goal is to create a vignette-like effect.
Step 17
Add another layer and fill it with black. Change the blending mode to Lighten Foundation. Then use a brush to draw some white spots on the layout. Thanks to the selected blending mode, brush strokes will create a pleasant light effect.
Conclusion
Add another layer, fill it with black, and use it as a background. Then select all the layers and duplicate them. After that, merge them into one layer and go to the Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur tab. For the radius, I used a value of 20. Immediately after that, change the blending mode to “Overlay” with a value of 50%. Duplicate this layer and change the blending mode to “Screen” with a value of 40%.

These two layers will give the image more depth and an interesting glow effect. This is how you can create an image with an effect similar to the Wonder Woman logo, which you often see on posters.
