I love the idea of each section having its own layer, but couldn't you get a similar effect by colouring with gradients?

You might wanna invest in learning about photoshop features more. Look up clipping masks and locking transparent pixels. Would make the tutorial much better.
Sheridan-J's avatar
Yes that's definitely another good way to go about it, and I would use Clipping Masks in my professional work. However I wanted to keep this as simple as possible for more beginners. But you have given me an idea for another tutorial, so thank you :D
