Hi Lisa,
I’m a newbie to Procreate and am so in love with your brushes and tutorials, so thank you! One issue where I’m completely stuck On this tutorial is at the end where you “edit the layer mask” to connect the shadow corners to the text. How are you adding those corners bits? I can’t figure out how to add to the shadow once the layer mask is created and I’ve watched the video in slow-mo to see what you select when you go back to the layer mask after moving the “winner winner” text layer above the drop shadow.
Thanks in advance, Nicole

I see what you mean! The video does not show that step. Go into your layers panel and select the “Layer Mask” layer. It’s the one that is the black and white “Winner Winner.” Then use the color white to paint in the areas that connect the shadow to the text. I hope that clears it up! I would also check out my Masks tutorials to learn more about using layer masks:
