I love how you did the water and as the water falls from the dragon. Could you make a tutorial about the water? Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1]

Would you be able to create a water tutorial? I find I have difficulty understanding how the effect is created when the water is moving or being moved.

Wow, I like that Tutorial. I like, that you show more steps than usual. I canīt see how someone paints a picture when he shows two, maybe three steps, especially beacause they are often very similar. Good job!
