Gradient Mesh Help
on Jun 26, 2009 at 11:43:06 pm

Hello I need some help with the gradient mesh tool. I have has used it before for simple designs and logos with no problem, but I need to use it now to make a blank t-shirt with folds. I am having trouble figuring out how to get the mesh to rap cleanly around the folds. If there is an alternate way to do this instead of gradient mesh please share, but I need it to be done in Illustrator and be able to retain the ability to change the color of the shirt easily. I would greatly appreciate any help. I have attached some examples of what I am going for. Thanks.

Maybe, try drawing the gradient areas as individual shape objects. Here's an example...

I didn't set it up for an easy color swap, but you easily could, or do it in Photoshop.
