  1. Hi Justin, When I get to 4:06, I end up with a black circle when I fill with black. I followed you to the sec. What to do?


    1. Maybe my settings are off?


      1. I didn’t know that I was supposed to delete the whole thing at 3:59. Maybe a little more direction there since there was a silence I spent 1hr following for sec by sec. oh well, at least now I can draw a shutter in my sleep. Great tut though!
