Lindsee your page is awesome! Well done!! Love all the shadow work too on the banners!
Lindzee, I love your page!!!! The only thing I would change is that on the top card that your are pulling out the shadow to the right, I would have pulled the shadow in (to the left) because if I am not mistaken your global shadow is like a 45degrees.
oh yeah!!! I try to do this effect on several layout in the past but now i think i understand the technique!! Super tahnsk Dalis! I can't wait to try this tonigt!!!
I had to make myself upload this, before I "fiddled any more with it.......
Can't wait to see it!
ok i think i understand!!! not perfect but i arrived to a result that love!!! Thansk so much for the tut!!
The trick is to keep practicing, it looks awesome!
yes Dalis! For sure, i will try this technique again (in fact, i don't work with photoshop so i need to adapt the technique for my software )
What do you use? Maybe you can share with the rest, just in case they are using the same software.
Thanks for the tuto Dalis. I will try this technique but I think, I should adapt it for my software. I use the GIMP (like Buzinette)
Looking forward to you trying it too Gaelle.
It's funny I made a rapid tutorial for Gaelle today but in French I will translate them this weekend and post a link here
You are so sweet Helene! Thanks!
Christelle, that looks really good, now remember just a bit of shadow is better than too much shadow. Are you using a shadow in black? I usually tend to do a dark brown but sometimes even grabbed a darker color than your paper. In this case I would do like a navy blue color and keep it a tad lighter, then tend to look more real. (btw. I love that pic too!)
thanks for that Dalis. I'll have to try that. I tried reducing the opacity of the shadow layer but it was looking a bit weird, I just couldn't get it right. I'll try the navy.
just redone it; I'm much happier with the result (even if I might have reduced the opacity a bit too much!!). Thanks Dalis, you're a little angel ;-)
It looks a lot better, you could go a bit darker. I find that sometimes the color of my shadows are not "working" and then I change them to a darker color of whatever they are on top of. It helps me a lot. Also, I find that doing my shadows with a blending mode of "linear burn" it's a lot easier to lower the opacity and not looking so "light". (I can't remember what software you use and if you can change this).
just finish the translation of my tutorial.
this is a very quick tutorial but if it can help other people
