Select shapes one-by-one and use the gradient tool to apply shadows on the character. For the fins on the bottom, make sure that the one on the back is darker. For the eye, a circular fill would be more appropriated.

In this step, we will create two large shadows. One is placed below the mouth. In fact, the top of this shape is used to create the mouth itself. Make it dark and slightly transparent on the right. On top of the whale cartoon, create a large light shape to illustrate reflection. The bottom of your shape must be transparent.
