I'm trying to make some real life shadows of depth on some designs. I've attached some examples of another artist's works that illustrate the effect I'm trying to achieve in Illustrator CS6
Okay Guys here's what I tested. I did a simple square example as it's easiest to illustrate.
I was able to manually make the shadow effect. Even enlarging it's distance of shadow as I 'went down' into the design.
*My question is for anyone is how can I keep the shadow effect, as it's own shape/vector? I know I could trace the shadows, but wanted to know if there is a way (for more difficult shadows) to have the shadow as it's own vector shape?
