Appendixes > 3D Sphere

3D Sphere

1.
This exercise is really easy—but it looks cool. First, select the Oval tool (no line) and the built-in radial gradation.

2.
Draw a circle.

3.
Select the Transform Fill tool. If you pick up the circle handle in the center of the fill, you can move the center point of the fill up and to the left (where the imaginary light source is on your computer screen).

4.
Grab the square handle and move it to the left to change the shape of the radial gradation.

5.
Grab the bottom circle handle to rotate the shape of the gradation.

6.
Grab the circle handle that's between the rotate and shape handles to adjust the fall off.

7.
Keep tweaking your image until you've turned the circle into a sphere. Notice that because of the arc in the fall off, the circle has an equator.
