Adobe Illustrator reflection effect
In the following video I will try to explain how to use Adobe Illustrator to create a reflection of any object you choose. I will go through some pointers on how to use the gradient tool, and the transparency palette to build that reflection.
As with any technique there are many ways of doing it, this is a simple way that will show you how to make the reflection effect, using simple shapes.
A few years ago I created a simple tutorial entitled “Illustrator Opacity Mask” covering the same technique but without the video, check it out for extra tips and instruction.
To follow this tutorial you should have any version of Adobe Illustrator installed, you can get a trial here if you don’t have it.
I hope this video helps you understand the technique, if you have any questions or comments let me know.
