Today I am working on Lynda.Com Lessons. I am working on adding gradient strokes to your objects. I learned about gradient strokes. It was a very interesting lesson. I was so interested about learning it I had fun with that lesson. Now I am working on creating variable width strokes.
This is the tree I attempted to draw and as you can tell the limbs the trunk the hole where animals would live are all with width strokes.
This is the photo after the width strokes. As you can see it looks like he is smiling now.
This is the photo before the width strokes.
This is after all the red is finished and I finished the 3d affect.
This is where I added different mixtures of red. Where I started the 3d affect.
This is where I started adding the stoke with the gradient.
This is still only gradient just in a different color.
This is the second image with just gradient.
This is the image I started with.
