Ampersand layer art - student project

Was really fun and interesting to make this project. Added a bit noise to the picture so it would look a bit more papery looking.

Biggest problem was with the computer speed of making the shadows. Tried to apply the shadows last but still after wanted to make some minor changes but the effect took quite long to do that. Any suggestions to that problem? Maybe it's because I made in 300 ppi?

But thanks for the project! Really enjoyed it. 

Cheers
