Create a new document (Cmd/Ctrl +N) with these setting:.

Step 5 – Duplicating Path.
Use “Ctrl/Cmd + C” to copy path, then paste path “Ctrl/Cmd + V”.
Now we have two path in one layer. And then we’ll make them into a 90 degree angle. Use “Ctrl/Cmd + T”, and move the center of transform control to top right corner.
Rotate it 90º CCW, press enter to apply. Activate Path Selection Tool (A), nudge the path to left like this.
Step 6 – Preparing for Highlight (Duplicating Path and Scaling Down).
Now, we need to duplicate the layer with “Cmd/Ctrl + J”. And name it “highlight”. Then transform the paths on this new layer. Hit “Cmd/Ctrl + T” to show transform control. To get easier transforming, we can use Alt and Shift key. Scale down horizontally first, an then scale down vertically. Just like this.
Repeat the transforming onto another subpath.
Step 7 – Rasterizing.
On the layer pallette, right click on “highlight” and select “Rasterize Layer”. Or we can access it on Menu Layer > Rasterize > Shape.
