This week Bert shows us how to create a metal grill from scratch. At first glance you may think he used Adobe Illustrator for this episode of Pixel Playground, but in reality this repeating effect is created completely within Photoshop. Bert starts out by creating some patterns for the repeating holes, plus a special pattern for adding some depth. Next, he creates a linear gradient that helps create the illusion of metal. Finally, he lines up all of the layers and patterns to complete this impressive illustration of a metal grill.

This week, Deke takes us through the many shades of the gradient tool and shows how to best use it for smooth results.
