Some time ago I was looking for metal/metallic gradients for Adobe Illustrator and realized how difficult it was to find good resources. A lot of stuff for Photoshop but for Illustrator...
Anyway, I decided to make some for myself and began looking everywhere for nice pictures. Then I just couldn't stop :lol:

:bulletblue: You will find in this file 140 metallic gradients and a few other things:

    Gold
    Copper
    Brass
    Silver
    Chrome
    Steel
    Aluminum
    Platinum
    Titanium
    Tungsten
    Carbon
    Nickel
    Bronze
    Iridium
    Others: Painted Metals / Wood / Pearl / Emerald / Marble / Glass / Iridescent


:bulletblue: A few (very few) of these gradients have been made by other people, but I made the mistake to mix them with my own stuff at some point. If you see one of your gradients here just tell me and I'll credit you / delete it from the .ai file, as you wish.

:bulletblue: Don't give too much importance to the gradients' names. Gold can look like copper, steel like chrome, etc. Just use the ones you like.
See the 'how to' text file if you have no idea where to put the gradient file.

:bulletblue: Let me know what you think, leave a comment.
If you use the gradients in one of your deviations, please show us the result ! Giving credit is not necessary at all, just appreciated.

Have fun ^^

Deviant downloads these files in an .rar format which cannot be unzipped or opened (see complaints on their "Forum Page" I am using a MAC system and I have downloaded several 'unzip' programs from the internet trying to open these files and I have the same problems all the dozens of other users have complained about (without a response (as far back as July of 2018)).    If you have no solution then please cancel my membership
