I would like to create a maze with gradients, but I don't know where to start. I can see that they are subtle gradients that shift, so I would like to start with some techniques that could help me shift my perspective beyond basic flat design:
As a beginner, my reasoning would be:
Create selected areas and put them on individual layers
Choose eight or so colors, trying to find ones that blend into one another for depth. This sum not really sure of and don't know a lot about color theory.
Create the full outline of the maze, but in a slightly different style that extends for a few more turns.
Use the gradient tool to try to match up where intersecting layers.
Would this be a correct technique? Am I missing something?
