I'm working on a logo in Illustrator where the pieces have black outer glows to give depth to a paper-fold style logo theme.
The shadows on the outside of the logo text are just a result of the effect needed to achieve what I want on the inside of the logo text.
I want to contain the outer glows so that they only appear within the bounds of the letters, not showing up against the background.
How can I do this?
For a fast, rough example of my goal, I took this into photoshop and pajnted over the shadows I want to hide:
In photoshop, I could just mask the edges of this properly, but I need it done in Illustrator, in vector.
