    3D Concave Effect to Achieve Hollow-Donut Look

    Chief Tarun

      3D Donut.pngI am trying to achieve a 3D hollowed-out effect to get a tube or empty donut look. This is the file that I am working on. The intended effect is a 3D quarter pipe that looks hollow and concave, so that it's caving indwards away from the viewer. As you can see, it's not perfect because I am only using 2D shapes with gradients and inner glow effects. Is there a way to create a realistic and authentic concave look for this hollow pipe/cylinder in Illustrator CS5?  Thanks!
