(Help) Vector Shadow for Microstock

Recommended Posts


if you re in vector stock (microstock) industry, you are gonna know this issue.

vector agency will not approve vector with standard  dropshadow / outer shadow FX.

so designer do alternatives things to create shadow,

in affinity, sametimes it's easy to create curve shadow when the object is circle. ex :

1. create 2 circle


2. radial (fill tool) on the black circle, dont forget to set multiply on the layer


3. boom, its perfect


but, this becomes frustrating when the object is not circle / ellipse.

for example, we cant do the same technic when the obkject is square, 


ridiculous haha.

So, please, anybody here can give me tips to solve this?

PS : in Illustrator, we can do it easily with mess fill
