    Very good, enjoyed the mirrored text pod. As somewhere between a beginner and intermediate user, I could follow and understand Ken’s instruction. It would also be nice to have a text instruction sheet for this lesson. Thanks

    Thanks for the video of doing a shadow of the text. It was very useful. I´m coming back and looking for more great stuff-

    Really enjoyed this. I believe you did one quick step at the end without commenting on it. I couldn’t use lighting effects like you did after render to get the same backlighting effect. Then I realized your merged the visible layers just before the last render filter was applied. After I merged the layers, I got the same lighting effect that you did.

    Nice job on the drop shadow; just the right amount to give it depth and perspective.
