    Thank You

  4. I have reahed the stage of lighting the windows in the witch house, I make a new layer and use the pen tool to draw around the window but I cant replicate the yellow light that is supposed to be emmited. I follow the instrutction to the letter and have tried many times. I also dont have the red colour with the brush tool when applying masks. Please help :(

    1. Hi Jules,

      After you've finished drawing with pen, just right click on the draw path and choose Fill Path, you should be able to fill with drawing path with the color in the tutorial provided.

      Also, the red color in the layer mask is just a sample for better visual view, its actually the black color you use when masking.

      Let me know if there's anything more you want to know, contact me via my email : [email protected].



  5. It seems like you forgot to include the Witch House in the tutorial resources.

    Thanks for all the great tutorials!
