Shading parts of shapes but not the entire thing. (How To)

Recommended Posts

Im become somewhat good with shading but there are still a few more complex shapes that get me.

 

1. How would you create this shape (Picture Below)

2. How do you achieve the shaded/different colour look in the back of the ring shape. 

 

I was able to do it by creating a ton of layers by  the shading never lined up perfectly.

What is the easiest and best looking way to do it?

I'm not sure how much of the white edges you want or need in your project, but I created something similar with 5 shape layers, 3 for the edges & one each for the ring's interior & exteriors. I colored the 3 edges with something other than white so they would show up better in the screen shot, but you might want to do something different with them.
