    I know this is an old tutorial but just wanna say thanks for the great one. I just completed it, although it does not look as great as yours :-)

    I’m just wondering, how could you start with the shadow first? At the beginning we do not have the glass yet, how could we know how it might be “shadowed”? What I did was, I created the glass first and at the final step, I made a shadow for the entire glass including the surface, the middle part and the handle. This ensures the shadow matches the object and I think it makes more logical sense.
