Greg's Pool Shadow Animation

 

This is NOT my idea

Just a Technique I picked up somewhere along the way

 

We're going to make this Tile

You will need

Gregs Factory Output 2 - Pool Shadow

 

Ready?

Let's Begin!

New Image 200x200

Fill with a color of your choice

Duplicate twice for a total of three Layers

 

On the Top Layer:

 

On the Middle Layer

 

On the Top Layer

A couple of notes on how you can change this up

I usually pull the intensity down to around 50, but you don't have to

For a different effect :

Change the Horizontal slider instead-

The one just above the Vertical one you have been moving around in this Tut

Just remember to not move it too much.

Just a few ticks either way each time
