Hi, I'm Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist, and I'm going to show you how to do some gun metal effects in Illustrator. So, what I've done here is I've just drawn some really basic rectangle shapes in the formation of maybe what would be a gun. So, what you can do basically is you can select this square for example and you can go down to this little, there's a little button down here that's called the gradient button and it'll do is it'll take the selection that you pick and literally just fill it with the gradient. And I like this because you have several options. You can leave it, you can change the way that it looks; I mean, the end, the options are endless. But, my favorite part about this is you can reverse the way the gradient goes and you're going to want to do that with gun metal because gun metal, like the way that a gun is designed illus, illustratively is really specific. So, what, using this tool is really ideal. And pretty much all you do is just fill them with gradient just like that and they can, you can even put these a little closer together so that they look more like they're actually together. And this is how you make gun metal in Illustrator. My name is Alex Cecilio, thank you very much.
