    Hi. I loved your video doing this. Thank you so much. In Procreate 5, I just used your clipping mask suggestion and it worked. But, then I couldn’t do the drop shadow part. Do I need to duplicate a layer to allow the drop shadow to slide from underneath. Using the clipping mask technique doesn’t seem to let me do it.
    Thank you!

      Yes, you can duplicate the layer and fill with black first. But I usually just click on the layer of the art and choose SELECT. Then, create a new layer and make sure Black is selected in my color and then I click the new layer and chose Fill first. Then you can do a gaussian blur.
