Tinting half of my image in Illustrator

I have created an icon, and I want to tint half of the image to make it darker.

I have created another layer ontop of the icon, so that it covers half of my icon, and decreased the transparency. How do I get that rectangle to take on the shape of the icon, instead of it remaining to be an rectangle?

Answer

Start with your icon

icon

For the example I copied the circle becuase I wanted the shadow to fit inside the circle. I placed the transparent triangle on top of that circle.

clipping

Open your transparency window. Select both objects and click create mask. I also check “clip” & “invert mask”

transparency
