Ah. Well, as long as sufficiently clean lines are used, I don't
think the extra quality in shading will detract from the clarity of the
graphic. We have artists here (in the marketing dept, but...) who use
full 3-D texturing and rendering techniques to produce marketing fluff.
It's still very clear and easy to follow, however.
