Now I'm going to show you how to do a text with a light ray, shinning from behind it.
So let's get started. As we see here, I've got a new document open. And this is a 800x200x300
DPI, that I've got here. Must hit D on my keyboard. Which switches back to black and
white. What I'm going to do is, I'm just going to go ahead and fill this background. With
my black by hitting Alt-End-Delete or Alt-Backspace. And I'm going to hit X to bring my white to
fore ground light. So I'm going to grab a text here. Let's choose a nice sample. Let's
just go with white land lake, so. And let's just put, this actually says, darkness. Here
we go. And we select V. Actually hit enter to except your text and then hit V to go back
to your pick move tool. And I'm just going to modify this, high feel, here. I won't get
it too big. Because I've still got to have light rays to come from behind it. So anyways,
this is our start. We're going to pause here. We'll pick this up in the next part.
