Hi there. Have a look at my new tutorial published on Vectortuts and you will learn how to create a glassy text effect filled with a green, acidic substance.

    Hi Andrei, correct me if I’m wrong but I believe for the gradient in Step One is incorrectly labelled? I used 255, 135 & 171 but that gave me a pinky colour and not a yellow. And the background colour (250,250 & 250) came out as a white whereas it seemed a yellow colour in your pictures.

    • Hi Luke.
      You’re right about the gradient. The correct color is 255 235 & 171.
      Take a closer look at the background color. The numbers are correct but you got them wrong. It’s 250 250 & 230.
      Thanks a lot for your message and let me know if you spot some other errors. I’ll contact Sean (the VectorTuts editor) and he will make the correction.
      Sometimes, when I hurry I accidentally hit the wrong buttons.
