I searched it to see if someone made it before but no result. I searched for keyword torus or ring. What we want to achieve: Plugins required: Shape3D, AAs_Assistant, Gridlines, Gausian Blur 1. Add New Layer and fill it with colour what you want. I used #7F6A00. 2. Now in Shape3D choose setings like in image below: 3. You must get this: 4. Run AAs_Assistant with default settings twice. 5. Duplicate layer 6. Add new layer then choose Gridlines plugin - Horizontal spacing = Vertical spacing = 20 7. Go to Select layer down and choose Ellipse Select tool, make an ellipse and fine adjustment of the shape with Move Selection. Gridlines help us to fine-adjust the shape of the ellipse. 8. Cut sellection. 9. Use Magic Wand tool and select ellipse cuted before. 10. Go to Select layer down and move sellection like in image below then cut selection. 11 Go to Select layer up and Use Magic Wand to select ellipse again. 12. Go to Select layer down an use Color Picker to select external color to the ring. My color is #2C2500. 13. Use Paint Bucket to fill selection with color. Flood Mode = Contigous. Tolerance 50%. Click on the interior wall of the ring not on the center of ellipse. 14. Deselect (CTRL+D) go to gridline layer and delete it. 15. Merge Layer Down. 16. Use Magic Wand tool (Flood Mode, Tolerance 50%) sellect the interior wall of the ring and make a gradient linear (reflected) with second color #DBAE1A (Press and hold Shift key, right click and drag horizontaly). Primary color is #2C2500. 17. Use Magic Wand tool (Flood Mode, Tolerance 50%) sellect the entire exterior wall of the ring and make a gradient linear (reflected) with second color #DBAE1A like at p.16. Deselect (CTRL+D). 18. Apply AAs_Assistant and then Gausian Blur 2. You can use Adjustements > Curves to improve the final quality, you can select entire Layer and rotate as you wish.
