How do you create this text effect in Illustrator?

I tried creating a shadow behind the letter, but it did not appear similar to this.

Can anyone point me to the right direction?

You can't get that with the Drop Shadow effect, but instead:

  • Select your original T shape
  • Do an offset via Object → Path → Offset Path
  • Create a copy of the offset shape and ALT+SHIFT+Drag diagonally
  • Create an Object → Blend between these 2 offset shapes with 'Specified Distance' set to 0
