Thanks for this guide! I've been wanting to experiment with parallax scrolling and this will really help me get started.
Awesome, Derek! Let me know if you have any questions
The final effect is really cool. It adds a lot without being distracting, well done!
Thank you Sacha! :) Cheers
Kinda wish it was written without haml so i could learn from it easier
Hey Jacob, thanks for the feedback! To make things easier you can use http://www.haml-converter.com/
Great job on this! Question: How do you go about designing the art work in layers? Do you have a workflow in Sketch/PS where you can preview the effect?
Hey, not sure if I get the question but with this particular one - I basically painted the illustration starting from the background and going into the foreground so I was able to split this into layers as I go.
If I wouldn't have this, and I would just have one static image I would cut this into layers per what I perceive as 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. layer of depth with basic pen tool and used the Fill > Content-Aware for the holes. Everything done in Photoshop.
I think I'll record a video of me doing it to make things simpler :) But let me know if that answers your question or if I'm on the right track to answering it.
