Warping drop shadows ....... photoshop

Recommended Posts

So iv'e got the whole warp drop shadow thing to give the effect the page is curling , by creating a layer under the area you want to appear as if it is a page , the selecting gaussian blur and selecting area a little smaller then the div , and rounding the corners with a 2-4 , done.

Now I'm looking at something a little different. Say you have a spider on a web, you use drop shadow and it looks as if the spider is hovering over the web. But what about warping the shadows down to the web so it appears as if spider is casting a shadow yet standing on the web ?

To make shadows cast on something like a web from a spider. First do the shadow for the spider get it how you would like it, dup the layer of the spider with the shadow, flatten the layer so everything is in one. Erase the spider from one layer and the shadow from the order. Now you should have 2 layers, one with just the spider the other with just the shadow of the spider.

Select the web layer then choose the spiders shadow invert the selection and delete. You should now have the shadow on just the web. The spice it up, take a semi-fat eraser that is very soft and go around the edges of the shadow on the web this will make it look like the shadow is rolling over the web ie. more natural.

Hopefully you can understand that, its very hard to describe in text, how to do this.
