4: Six Simple 3D Graphics created using the power of Gradients
One of the key benefits of using Gradients is – you can give a 3D feel to 2D shapes by playing around with Gradient stops and varying the intensity of colors. In this lesson, I will show you some interesting 3D graphics created entirely using Gradients.
The best part is – these graphics are very easy to create. You will get a solid understanding of gradients as you create these graphics from scratch.
1. Simple button graphic using Gradients:
This video from our YouTube channel shows you how you can create simple button graphic using gradients. Watch this to create the graphic from scratch in minutes:
2. Filled Sphere infographic in PowerPoint:
See the amazing power of gradients to convert a plain 2D circle into awesome 3D sphere in a matter of seconds. You can use the graphic to create interesting infographic too. Watch the video to learn how to create the graphic from scratch:
3. Useful Continuum Graphic:
A continuum graphic shows transition from red to green in a progressive manner. Watch this video that shows you how to create the graphic in seconds – in a step by step way:
4. Peeled sticker:
Whenever you want to make a quick announcement around an object, a peeled sticker graphic comes in handy. Readymade graphics don’t give you the kind of flexibility – you get by creating the graphic from scratch.
