Tips & Tricks: How to create different shadows in CorelDraw – 2


This is part (a section) of a recent advert design I worked on but it wasn’t approved. See steps on how to achieve this simple shadow style.

1. Create your elements, here I used a moon and star, your may use text as well.

2. Apply colours/gradient

3. Draw a shape that will represent the shadow as done below and place it behind the object.

4. Apply transparency tool – use the ‘Linear’ transparency type.

5. Apply step 4 for all objects.

6. Convert the shadow to bitmaps, apply the ‘Blur’ effect and place the object in container/frame.

Your design should look like this!
