    Thank you for this tutorial, I really enjoyed the details with the texturing and lighting – always some tricks to learn. I was curious though, the first four letters of my five letter text element colors are inverted. Instead of white surrounding black text, they’re black surrounding white text – and then the last letter looks like yours, white text surrounding black. I tried adding another connect object as sometimes this fixes things, but didn’t work. Next I’ll try using a different font, but maybe you have a thought?
    Thanks in advance,
