You’ll start by learning how to set up a simple grid, how to create the main four circles, and how to easily place them in the center of your artboard. Using basic blending and vector shape-building techniques, you will learn how to add subtle shading and a simple star shape. Next, you will learn how to create a pretty simple gradient mesh. Taking full advantage of the Appearance panel and using some simple Blur effects, you will add the extra highlights and textures.
