Step 3
Now we can add the blades themselves. They rotate faster than the central part of the fastening mechanism, so the blur effect should be stronger.

2. Create a working canvas
To ensure the most accurate display of small details, I chose the largest possible canvas that a computer can process without serious problems – 5000 by 3337 pixels:
3. References
