Is there any method to smudge colors in Adobe illustrator?

  • Yes kind of. There's no smudge tool in Illustrator, but you could perhaps use the Gradient Mesh tool.

  • In Illustrator CC 2019, there's a also a new Freeform Gradient tool. You might want to take a look at that. Other than that, there are blur effects, but absolutely nothing like a smudge tool. Illustrator is a vector application, and is nothing like raster based painting/image editing software.

  • What have you tried? Where are you struggling? Questions should reflect the effort you've gone to yourself to try and answer it yourself.
