So, I was trying to follow an online tutorial where shadows are made with a black gradient and Soft Light Blending mode (as shown in the picture), but when I try to use the soft Light mode, my colors go brighter, no darker (picture). I dont understand, what's going on(?) https://ibb.co/gvcgXCz https://ibb.co/F3VMWDz

    Is your document RGB or CMYK? What color mode is the tutorial using?

  • I would guess as Scott has already alluded to, that the tutorial is using RGB colour, but you are using CMYK colour. The blend modes in Illustrator work very differently depending on the colour mode of the document.
