I was trying to make a rocket but I am stuck with the shadow portion. How can I create a shadow that looks like picture 2?
If you are using it in Illustrator I would :
get the main shape that is part of that rocket. With the same color, you are using there.
copy and past in the same place (cmd+shift+V) twice.
offset one of them to the left and use the pathfinder tool as shown in the images
The result should be a shape like this
- Then set that object to a transparency mode 'multiply' as such
- finally you would have to arrange the objects in a way where this new shadow would be over the main shape and the top darker part of the rocket but not over the circular shape. So select the dark point of the rocket and the background shape and the shadow and arrange them to be sent to back.
One last thing would be adjusting the opacity of the shadow shape. I used 50% opacity for this result
Hope this helps :) Any doubts let me know. This was done in illustrator. Also apologies for the rushed version of your lovely illustration.
