Sick of the loading interface? Learn how to make rich loading interface with blending modes, gradients, and tons of layers.

Download out of Internet the same texture, like the next one, having 1280×1024 px and 72 dpi.

Set the next parameters for the above downloaded texture’s layer by making a mouse click on the layer we work with in the layers’ panel: Blending Options>Gradient Overlay

Loading Interface

Gradient’s parameters:

Next try to represent a circle, colored with #565656. It’s necessary to use for the beginning the Ellipse Tool (U) to represent the outside edges and then press Alt button to cut out the inside element’s part, applying the same tool.

The layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Lighten
Blending Options>Inner Glow

Using the already known Ellipse Tool (U), try to create the next layer, belonging to the same element:

Make twenty - three copies of this last made layer and select Free Transform option to turn the copies around their axes on a certain angle:

Combine in a group all the layers containing the black lines (press Ctrl button to mark out the corresponding layers and hold on the left mouse’s button to take the accentuated layers on Create a new group selection). Apply the next indicated parameters for the new group: Opacity 20%

Loading Interface

Make a copy of the last made group containing the black lines. We need to get back the Opacity option on 100% on the copied group, erasing on the copy all the lines, except those shown below:

Try to make one more circle, choosing the same Ellipse Tool (U). Firstly we’ll represent the outside edges of this circle and then when pressing Alt button, applying the mentioned tool, it’s possible to cut out the middle part of the circle and after that cut out one more part of the same circle, like it is represented below:

Select once again the Pen Tool (P) to picture a highlight of white color which shape is possible to correct with the Convert Point Tool.

Loading Interface

Choose the next demonstrated parameters for the layer: Fill 20%

Loading Interface

Select the same Pen Tool (P) to create a triangle which shape must be corrected with the Convert Point Tool.

Applying the earlier chosen instruments (Pen Tool (U) and Convert Point Tool), it is possible to draw another highlight of white color:

Loading Interface

Set the next parameters for the last made layer: Fill 17%

Loading Interface

Now we shall use the Ellipse Tool (U) to draw a highlight of white color. Next there will be used the Add Anchior Point Tool to insert a top on the bottom part, as it is shown next image and then make the appropriate corrections the same way from below:

Loading Interface

The layer’s parameters: Fill 20%

Loading Interface

Create a new file (File>New) of 4×4 px and 72 dpi. We shall use on it the Pencil Tool (B) (brush 1 px) to represent the same pattern from next picture of white color.

Loading Interface

Edit>Define Pattern
Next step includes using the Ellipse Tool (U) on a new layer (Create new layer) on which must be inserted the last made pattern.
