comment Best way to create a shadow (depth) effect in Illustrator?
Ah, yes, I think I figured out the gradient tool basics, at least as far as sliders and color assignment goes. My main difficulty is picking the color - to make a color be 'shadow darker' what do you change? I was playing with the B and S sliders (black and saturation), but it made for ugly flat or grayish colours, didn't look like a shadow. This is why I ended up going with the 'overlay' effect on opacity

I tried to apply the gradient directly, but I couldn't get the colors right, not sure how to apply this type of shadow or to figure out what the colors should be if I was just to do a gradient based on two flat colors to achieve the shadow effect

What do you mean by 'soften the transition of current treatment'? Sorry, my graphic design vocab is somewhat lacking.

comment Best way to create a shadow (depth) effect in Illustrator?
I'm trying to create a somewhat visually playful effect using white space and shadows - imagine a hollow 3D cube with the edges being white (the white space), the centre of the image, where I have shadow now, is in the 'depths' of the cube, farther away from the viewer. In other words, you can think of the sides of the cube closet to the user as being transparent while the coloured sides you see are the inside of the cube, with the shadow being in the corner furthest away from the viewer.
