Not quite sure what you want but if for instance it is the right hand side of you attached picture I would use a gradient in Photoshop.

Another thing you could probably use, if you are having problems getting this effect with just a straight gradient in Illustrator, is the gradient mesh.

I just thought I should mention most gradient tools do not just create a simple one colour to another gradient. They can also create the effect of a curved item.

As @WebMachine said it looks like you use the gradient mesh in illustrator:

Definitely gradient mesh, but in this case, the illustration has the darker gradient all the way on top. It also has a base color and a highlight on the right side.

I would use something like this. Simply pen tool and gradients. Obviously
