Hello!

I drew an asteroid on Illustrator and Im trying to draw realistic holes like the smooth holes that asteroids have on them....Im using a gradient to fill the holes but for some reason, there is a shinny part appearing inside the holes even though the gradient only has two shades of gray.....it makes the holes look like bubbles portruding instead of smooth holes.. if you notice...I was able to create a couple holes that look good...how can I make that shinny part dissapear?  and another thing...it looks like the shinny part appear and dissapears as I zoom in and out. Any feedback will be appreciated, thank you.

Joyce,

 

One thing you can try out is to ClickDrag with the Gradient Tool over the path in different ways, including starting/ending outside the path, another is to reverse the colours. Maybe you have tried both.

 

In any case, a consistency in the shadows/highlights is needed, reflecting the direction of the light that falls on the asteroid.

 

You could also consider the freeform gradient and/or gradient mesh.
