How do I Art? (shadows)

Get help using Construct 2

Hi all,

I need some help with something. My artist has created a quick concept sketch here:

I think it's great, but I'm having a lot of trouble trying to prototype the shadows here. To be honest I'm not even sure where to begin with it. I think it'd need mask layers for some of these, but not even sure that's possible in C2. The shadow plugin doesn't seem to give you control of shadow length as far as i'm aware.

Sorry I'm a super idiot when it comes to graphics.

Getting the shadows as individual sprites and then arrange the scene in the editor.

Shadows would be static as there wouldn't be any interaction with moving objects. Your (fish?) character would be either under or on top, but for a a minimalist look maybe that would do

@torpedo - The platforms do move in my scene though, I think I might have found a solution with the paster plugin, will get back here.
