I am familiar with some of these effects from photoshop. I’ve done blending, drop shadows, glows, opacity. A lot of the stuff I already knew how to do, this project came pretty easily. Even if I wasn’t sure of what to do, I could figure it out by experimenting.
I’ve been using the same shortcuts, I don’t know if there were any new ones i used. I had issues with adding the blue tint to the background. Just making sure I had the right layer selected. I did learn the step and repeat which will be very useful in the future.
