    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the comments.

    @ Lukas: Good thought! I was running long on time for the video, so I really had a choice between Opacity Mask for the reflection or a flare. Not a big fan of Illustrator’s Flare tool, so the refection won.

    Best,

    Jeff

    Great tutorial but a quick question….

    Instead of outlining the text, couldn’t you just go to the appearance palette with the text selected and add a fill allowing you to use the the gradient and still edit the text?

    Great video!

    I have a question about making the lettering cleaner. I’m trying to make a basic logo that has some a touch to it. If you go to http://www.kjkfinancial.com it’s the lettering on the top. There are some shadow on top of the “J” and I was curious on how to make that cleaner.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.
