Practice, practice, practice. Thats is all you can do. You can put 1000 Flash designers in a room, tell them all to draw the exact same thing and you will get 1000 different ways of doing it.

One of the easiest? Tracing. All you will ever need is your mouse (cartoonsmart.com has inexpensive tutorials on drawing, and a VERY nice package with 4 or 5 different lessons for like 40 bucks)

To trace, you simply import an image you want to draw to the stage, put it on its own layer and lock that layer.

Then use squares, circles, whatever, to draw over the image until you have it done.

It takes a while, but the effects you learn in manipulating the shapes into the image are valuable and you get better and faster the more you practice.

Well, you need Flash. The videos on cartoonsmart are shown in QuickTime Player, so you will need that to watch them.

go to adobe.com and find the downloads section and you can get a trial version of Flash 8.

:rolleyes: Really? Cause you need to be more specific here. No off topic posts and if you have a specific question, ask it.
