Using the Tone Effect

Using the Tone effect, you can apply a shadow to a drawing. Contrary to the Shadow effect, the Tone effect does not convert your drawing into a shadow, it applies the shadow onto your drawing. The resulting render includes both the drawing to its shadow.

The Shadow effect uses a matte drawing layer to determine which areas of the drawing to apply the shadow to. The shadow will not be applied outside of the drawing or outside of the matte.
