Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Blending a second gradient using translucency, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- In this movie, we're gonna blend in…a second translucent gradient using a couple of…carefully placed opacity values in order to…establish the boundaries of the earth.…And I wanna retrieve that compound path…that represents the earth, so I'll go ahead and…twirl open my gradients layer here inside the layers panel,…and I'll turn on that compound path so that I can see it.…I also need to be able to see my guides,…so I'll turn them on and I'm gonna select…that guide's layer as well.…Now at this point you're gonna have to sort of bear with me.…What I want to do is establish a circular guide…that we'll use in order to draw the second radial gradient,…and I want it to be the size of that original Earth,…the one that was rounded in opposition of Saturn,…that we created back in the previous chapter.…
And I didn't keep that big circle,…so I'm gonna have to recreate it,…and I'm gonna do so by switching to the ellipse tool,…which I can select from the shape tool flyout menu,…and then, I'll go ahead and position my cursor right there…
