Say you want you want to draw a crow bar, how would i shade it on the curved parts using the gradient tool. So far i know how to shade a circle or rectangle using the gradient feature. And designs ive done which needed shading on curves ive had to make a few seperate darker layers and then used a blur tool to make it look like a gradual shadow.

 

Do any of you know how this can be done an easier way?

 

Thanks in Advance

Have you tried playing around with Layer Effects - Inner Shadow? I just did a quickie test and it gave me an OK result with a rudimentary, smallish crowbar-like shape. YMMV

Im actually trying to recreate a motorbike in affinity designer, check out my instagram FANGPUNK, im close to finishing it, but learning alot along the way, there are lots of shapes and shading them has been a pain if they are not round or square.
