I have been using flash4 for plain old illustration...not even animation so much anymore....( flash 4 ..because flash 5 drawing tools are all messed up)

please, any input would be helpful.....hate it? REALLY think it sucks?

Im curious....


99% of the art is drawn in flash 4....

Love the little cow critter, your clean line's and the fact you have resisted the temptation of gradiants. vey cool :) Did you ever try drawing in Freehand and importing into flash to colour? Much fun. :D

I use the wacom tablet and paint brush tool in Flash 4......I never use gradients...they look crappy i think....if I want to shade something, I select an area, choose " paint only selected" and start to shade, slowly moving the sliding bar on the color window to get darker....
( cant do this in flash 5), I was sooooo upset with how they changed flash 5's drawing tools......I still draw in 4, then open the file in 5 when all the drawing is done.....

thanks for the kind words....

I drew a new pic yesterday in flash 4.....the girl with the blue background.....

Using flash4 for plain illustration????
OH! Me,too! I'm using it instead of Adobe Illustrator which
I have and I can't use it at all.
I thought that I was the only one to do that.
Your illustrations are so nice&interesting!
and I love the colors you put.

Last week I made my cliant's logo in Flash.
If you have time,check it :)

It's for Lady's fashion shop.

See you

me too use flash for drawing, but dont restrict to just as a drawing tool. I think you should explore flash more.
I feel flash 5 is more cool than 4 .. you just have to start working on it.
