In this week’s tutorial, Corey uses clipping groups and the twirl filter to create a masking effect over his background image.

    i’ll be sure to try out the twirl on the edges, that looks great, especially the two that meet(top left). might make some vector brushes with it.

    Is there an advantage to using the clipping group like he did?

    I would have just made a selection from the shape and turned it into a layer mask on the background layer…

    Obviously, I have some research to do.

    You should not have done that drop shadow. 🙁 At that point I liked but after I don’t. Sometimes less is more. But I liked what you have done with that ellpitical marquee and a simple twirl effect on the edges!
