    The only other thing i want to learn more from this is how to tilt the reflection to one side. Kind of like when you shine a light from say 2 o'clock. The shadow will be forming differently. If that area is tilted i think there will be a slightly more 3d and realistic view.

    But the problem is that in real life reflections are always straight down. I could make a tutorial on how to make a tilted shadow though!

    Hmm i might be thinking of a 3d rotation here my bad. Well for me i am in the trial and error stage, so anything i can play with i will try to see what just looks good to me.
