I had heard of this technique before, but never really committed to it. Having to use two separate shapes for every shade can be really annoying, so I guess for awhile I'd been holding out for a more efficient technique. But alas, none yet exist...

I was working in CMYK, so the highlights weren't really working for me. I'll have to do some more experimenting to figure out something that works. Something I realized I forgot to do while I worked was to leave the edges empty for their own sort of highlight. I'll have to remember to do this in the future.

Thanks for the quick tutorial! It's good to know that sometimes there isn't a "better" way to do something, and professional designers aren't magical beings with perfect ways of doing everything. I appreciate you sharing! :)
