So, I want to know what is the best way to apply a gradient to a curved shape as in "shape A" ( I used the shear filter, which is not what I want to do). I want to draw my shape with the pen tool first, then add the gradient to it. As you can see in "shape C", it didn't work. I want the gradient to follow the shape. Anybody have any suggestions?
