you have mail...



I just did this via AI Vault. This is a pretty basic tutorial, and rather, the difficulties that I had with it were mainly due to the person who created it being a bit unclear with regards to stroke pts and settings. The most valuable skill offered in this tutorial, I felt, is the highlight on the arrow, which is created by duplicating it twice, laying them together (but offset), and then using the Pathfinder toolbox to subtract the areas which you don't need. What you're left with is the two pieces which are layed onto the arrow, and then you can adjust the color within them as you see fit. In the end, I ended up just adjusting things to where I felt happy with them, which was fine for this type of exercise. Cute though, right?

You're welcome! I had a lot of fun with this. In case you're wondering, I found it on a list of tutorials at Noupe. :)
