Today I’ll post another tutorial video by Jeff Witchel. I like his videos because he’s very thorough and he explains everything in a simple way. On this video you’ll see how to use gradient on letters on Illustrator without having to convert it into outline.
That can be very helpful, since it is common that customers may change their mind about words and texts even at the last minute. It will also help you better understand the use of the appearance palette, which is also a great help in many cases. The same palette is also used for the MetalFX techniques without having to reproduce the elements that need to be metallic.
Watch it! I think you’ll like it!
