Strokes are core to drawing in Illustrator, and for Illustrator CS6, the ability to apply gradients on strokes will let designers transform simple paths into visually complex and compelling shapes. And the beauty of this approach, beyond the imaginative artwork, is that the shape that’s created is an easily edited stroke – not a typical shape that’s defined by many points.
In Illustrator CS6, gradients on strokes can be applied along the length, across the width, or within a stroke, but the real magic happens when these new gradients are combined with the variable width stroke feature introduced in CS5.
