Adobe Illustrator: Transparent Gradients in Adobe Illustrator: Creating gradients with opacity masks

Chapter: Paint, Draw and Design

Topic: Design Techniques

We’ve discussed Opacity Masks in Adobe Illustrator CS before. But what we haven’t discussed is Illustrator’s ability to use opacity masks to create gradients with transparency. This technique allows you not only to create gradients that transition from a solid to transparent color, but to generate complex gradients as well in which the transparency gradient can cut across the color gradient.
