Instead of using the construction paper texture for the Aurora, I used different colored tissue paper textures with reduced opacity to replicate the transparency of the lights. I also tried to incorporate a dancing effect to the Aurora. My file size ended up being huge and my rendering time was sooo long but it was all worth it. The paper cutout style creates such a cool effect - I am really glad I learned how to do this.
Thank you for watching!
Thank you always, teacher Jake, for the continually awesome lessons and projects!
