Gradient Mesh Tutorial by wakdor Gradient Mesh Tutorial by wakdor
Hope this is not too long. Just something I did in my spare time.
BTW the original image can be view here as a source for my mesh work.

Any question about gradient mesh I'll be happy to answer... just e-mail and drop me line or two. Thanks

I always wondered what the mesh tool did. I would like to get good at it. It looks like a better alternative than the pen tool. XD

This was a great tutorial and really explained it well and in great detail.

Most people need to keep in mind, the Gradient Mesh tool is not easy for someone new to illustrator. There's some long time AI users who may still not know how to use the mesh tool very well for stuff like this.

If you're just out to have fun, mess with it. When in doubt, save in versions constantly. :D

This is a good tutorial, but with being completely new and totally clueless on illustrator (and hopeless xD) i still found this tutorial slightly hard, I'm not sure if it's just me but i think i needed it dumbed down as looking at how all the finished outlines should look like is extremely daunting. :)

Good tutorial. The process looks like a lot of trouble. For the same effort, you could probably build and texture a 3D model of the object. In the end, you've traced a photo. Why bother?
