    Newbie - Need advice for a project

    Hey Guys,

    I am new to flash and web design, but I was wondering if someone could direct me into what I need to learn to develop this project.

    This would be an example of what I am trying to accomplish:

    I want to create a web application where people can create a toy:

    - They will pick a body type from a menu.
    - They will pick the hair from a menu.
    - They will pick the lips from a menu.
    - They will pick the shirt from a menu, etc.

    This feature will all people to pull items like the one above from a menu and put them onto a canvas.
    Using drag and drop.
    They also should be able to change the colour of some menu items.
    Very similar to this site:
    I was thinking of using something simlar to this site: http://www.picassohead.com/create.html

    Here is my question:

    Can I do this in flash? Will I also need to learn Java? Would I be better off learning something else?
    I am a quick learner and know some coding, and have even developed a couple of simple sites...

    I just want guidance on where I should start and what I should be learning to create this application.

    You can do it 100x better in flash.

    However a great web developer learns many different platforms.

    ((Im partial to flash))
    How can you say so much, but say so little?

    You can definately do this in Flash. Infact the one you are referencing was done only with flash. I would buy a membership to lynda.com and go through their flash courses. you have a lot to learn to get up to speed, but I am sure you will get the skill set you need after completing ActionScript and Flash courses.
