Questions & Answers

Q: How can you remove the background of an image using the pen tool?

To remove the background, trace the image using the pen tool. Then, remove the stroke, add a fill, and place it under the image. Mask the fill to create a clean cut-out.

Q: How can you create a realistic shadow effect for an object?

To create a shadow effect, use ellipses with layer blur. Start with smaller and less blurry ellipses under each leg. Duplicate and make larger and blurrier ellipses on the side where the light flows. Add light cones with linear gradients for more realism.

Q: How can you animate the color change of an object?

Duplicate the object and add colored overlays on top. Change the blending mode of the overlay layers to "color." Align the overlays in the middle and animate their expansion to create the color change effect.

Q: How can you prevent the legs of the object from being recolored?

Group the main part of the object separately from the legs. Remove the overlays from the legs group and flatten the shape to create a mask. Use this mask as a fill to prevent the legs from being recolored.
