    Real shadow from magazine

    Elise Björner Level 1

      Does anyone have a good trick for creating soft and realistic cast shadows for a magazine? Thanks!Screen Shot 2017-01-15 at 6.53.35 PM.png

          Something like this ?

           

          The left and right pages were created with the pen tool as shapes. The shape layer had drop shadow added at about 5%

          A layer was clipped to each shape and brushed with a black soft brush a 0% hardness and opacity turned right down (5-10%). Blending mode is multiply

           

          The additional layers layers marked "Left and Right Under" are just copies moved slightly to show extra edges.

           

           

           

          If that is not what you want - let me know
