    Please watch my “how to start a gradient mesh” video, it will help get some the information you may have missed. But to answer your question, I put illustrator in “outline mode.” Go to “view” and you’ll see outline mode and should be able to sample colors, if you followed the steps mentioned in the “how to start a gradient mesh” video.

    how did you make the meshs color disapear? i tried lowering the opacity so i could just sample directly from the source picture but once i start trying to color the inside points it wont let me because the original color of it was white

    You’re welcome

    I don’t know which video I covered this in. But if I find it, I’ll get back to you on that. 1.) But in the meantime, to create new mesh lines, you have to click on a already present mesh line. 2.) Creating curvy mesh can be tricky, be patient and place mesh lines where you want to pick up color. It would be much easier to show this, then to type an explanation. I’ll see about making a video covering this.

    Hey Frank looks like you got the new Illustrator CS6. How do you like it? It it easier to works with? Anything new for Gradient Mesh drawing in it? great video by the way. I like it and wonder if you can apply this to car to give them a more realistic look? I’m doing a new Ferrari 458 right now and taping it with Camtasia Studio to show how you do a car.
