AGSRenderer subclass

I have an AGSGraphicsLayer that currently uses AGSClassBreaksRenderer. All data has point geometry, and I am using AGSSimpleMarkerSymbol for each class break. This is quite nice when zoomed in sufficiently close, but I would like to be able to have another renderer that can visualize the graphics as a continuous gradient when the markers would overlap and lose distinction.

I expected to be able to make a subclass of AGSRenderer, but it is not clear to me how AGSGraphicsLayer and AGSRenderer interact to perform the rendering. Does the layer ask its renderer for a visual representation of each AGSGraphic? Does the visual representation of a graphic always end up being a swatch/image?
