Nice. How did you achieve the reflection/highlights?

I used fx 3D (at the bottom of the Layers panel) with multiple Light sources by using the 'Add' dropdown menu, mainly the Direction function and the Diffuse, Specular and Shininess functions, while tinkering with almost all other functions in the dialog. The main group consists of sub groups, some of which I assigned its own 3D fx. I also used the Curves and HSL Shift adjustments to achieve the effects that I aimed for, which took quite some time. I applied a complex linear fountain fill with various colours to the main group and clipped light and dark curves into the main group to suggest highlights and shadows. It may seem far out to some, but I always adjust function values to those that comply with Marco Rodin's Vortex Math system (https://www.virtuescience.com/enneagram.html) that reflect aspects of deeper layers of reality, that commonly are scarcely explored. What I do basically is endless fiddling with a certain aim in mind. not just creating artwork with random impulse. Regardless of the fact if people are aware of this or not, it affects their subconscious.
