Lesson 17. Changing the Look of an Object > Adding a Shadow or a 3-D Effect

Adding a Shadow or a 3-D Effect

A shadow gives some depth to an object. Applying a 3-D effect to an object does much the same thing, as you can see in Figure 17.3. The main difference is that a shadow just adds shading behind a two-dimensional object, while a 3-D effect attempts to make the object appear fully three-dimensional. Shadows work with all objects, but 3-D effects work only with drawn artwork.

Figure 17.3. Shadows and 3-D effects can keep your artwork from looking flat and boring.
