The gradient trend is rocking the world. A gradient is a graduated blend of two or more colors or tints of the same color. You can use gradients to create color blends, add volume to vector objects, and add a light and shadow effect to your artwork. Here we will create fantastic gradient illustration for you.
You can apply, and modify a gradient using the Gradient panel, the Gradient tool, or the Control panel.
What You Need to Know About Gradient Illustration
In Illustrator, you can create the following three types of gradients:
Linear: Use this gradient type to blend colors from one point to another in a straight line.
Radial: Use this gradient type to blend colors from one point to another point in a circular pattern.
Use this gradient type to create a graduated blend of color stops within a shape in an ordered or random sequence such that the blending appears smooth and natural. Freeform gradient can be applied in two modes:
Points: Use this mode to shade the area around a color stop.
Lines: Use this mode to shade the area around a line.
Note: A color stop is a point on the Gradient Annotator (for linear and radial) or on the object (for freeform) that controls the color of the gradient. You can change the color of the color stops to set a gradient.
