Illustration Friday - Balloon

This illustration is just terrible, another attempt at using Illustrator. I did practice with the Pathfinder tool to try cutting out "shadow" shapes at first, but then decided on using the gradient for a softer look. I hate the gradient tool in Illustrator, it's so non-intuitive. It's hard to get the color into the gradient palette, I end up clicking all over the place trying to figure it out, and waste a lot of time that way.

This was done for Illustration Friday, but I'm so horrified by it that I'm not even going to post it.
