Gradient Tool Adobe Animate CC
While coloring your work, gradients are a great way to add color and depth to your drawings.
Use the TRANSFORM tool and FILL tool to move the gradient to the best spot on the character/objects.
Pick a direction of where a light source would be coming from, and keep the gradients shading consistent throughout the character/object.
To create a linear gradient, follow the same steps as given above and choose Linear from the Type drop down menu. See the screenshot given below.
Image or Bitmap Gradients
You can also create a custom image gradient and apply it to a vector object by choosing the last option in the Type drop down menu which is the Bitmap option. Choose Bitmap and import the graphic that you would like as your custom gradient.
