    Did the explode, sliced, and smash tutorials already without problem, but this one when I make the sliver of box to cut the line out of the text, I make the box and float, but then when I change to use the move tool I get an error that the selection is empty. If you or anyone could help I would appreciate it.

    For me it keeps moving the background that I have behind the image – how do I prevent that?

  7. Thanks for the Tutorial! I found it really helpful and I already used it for an upcoming thumbnail and video of mine! Thanks!

  8. Yo Nick, just thought I'd slide by and show appreciation for your videos. They're really awesome and so easy to follow even for a total beginner like myself. I have a bit of a system with them now, I follow along with you 2-3 times and then I do it on my own multiple times until I can do the effect all on my own. It works really great. Thanks loads for taking the time to do this for us. You're awesome.

  9. ah i love your tutorials… super easy to do <3 thank you nick

    How do you even come up with this stuff man lol. Like do you know what all the functions in ink scape do so you visualize it in your head or do you go through a process of elimination for hours to figure it out.
