| One of the reasons I have preferred raster graphics to vector in the past is the uniformity of the vector graphics. But I have to admit that Illustrator has come a long way. With IllustratorR CS6, we can create variable width strokes to create complex shapes and then apply gradients to the strokes. These new features give us many new options for creating "raster looking" vector digital art.|
First let's take a look at the new feature for applying gradients to strokes. We will begin by drawing a spiral path with the Spiral tool.
Along Stroke - along the length of the stroke
Across Stroke - across the width of the strock
We can create some very interesting objects in Illustrator by creating complex shapes with the Width tool and then applying gradients.
