Get help using Construct 2

Hi all,


I'm here today to ask: how do I create shadows to make a zombie sprite walk across a 'grass' texture without looking.. 'rough' per-se?

Create a separate object that is the shape of the shadow you want. (Maybe alpha the edges so it blends better)
Pin it to your zombie under his feet.
Apply multiply effect to shadow.
(Multiply effect will actively darken the sprites beneath it to look more natural.)


If you want it to change direct (because of a light source) could simply set their angle to rotate at the right angle to it.
