I have several 'wiggly' line elements in a project I'm working on. I'd like to add a slight gradient, but I realize that the gradient tool does not 'adapt' to the curvature of the lines, creating a uneven fluctuation of the gradient's colors throughout the length of the line as the shape changes. Screenshot below for reference. Anyone know any cool tricks that might be able to help?
Potential progress! Both these techniques are new to me, so I'm kind of bumbling through it all. I was unable to achieve the desired effect using blends, but as we can see in the left-most line segment, I was able to make something work using two freeform gradient lines!
