No preloader sorry. I'm too lazy =_=;;

A number of people have requested this... Some requested me to show how I make my flash animations and some requested me to do a coloring tutorial... so I kinda combined it into one... No animation tutorial in this one but it does show you how I make my graphics in Flash. The coloring/shading instructions can be applied to other programs too, just with different tools, so even if you're not drawing in Flash, the coloring and shading tutorial might still not be completely useless :D

Feel free to ask Qs and I'll try to answer if they haven't already been answered.

...warning, this thing is probably a grammar fail =_=;; I did it all in 1 day, at the end of a week where I've had less than 6 hours of sleep per night =__=;;;

When you animate the elements, do you use the same process here or do you do something special to make it move/more fluid?

i have a mac computer and it doesnt have the button F8

so i dont know how to turn something into a movie clip, can u help? is there another way to change something into a movie clip?

:iconpowerswithin:
powerswithin Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2012   General Artist
There should be a menu item that says something like "Convert to symbol". So if you select the thing you want to convert to symbol, and find that option in the menu (i THINK it's under modify>convert to symbol) you can convert something into the movieclip that way =]
lemme know if it doesn't work for u.

I haven't gotten into Flash quite yet (though it's on my list of things to do when my schoolwork gets lighter), but I'm very glad to have seen this! It introduces things I'd not have thought of. I love your atmosphere principles!

Yep I used a tablet. The last time I checked they were all around ~$90 (Canadian dollars) at least. It was 4 years ago tho so maybe it's cheaper now =]

I don't understand how to color underneath the lineart. When I try to color, it covers the lines.

Make sure you're in the "Paint inside" mode on when using the brush tool in Flash =]
