  • Move it vertically down holding Shift + Alt to duplicate
  • Send it back
  • Reduce the opacity
  • Add a Transparency Mask with a rectangle filled with a gradient from black at the bottom to white at the top


enter image description here

  • This must be the simplest way to do it, but there is a problem with the gradient. It should follow the shape of the object. The reflection of the nearest corner gets too light. Also, if the object was more complex, you wouldn't be able to do this - you would have to redraw it seen from the bottom.

    The Opacity mask can be adjusted to accommodate more of a "distance" gradient/fade rather than a standard, straight, linear gradient.
