Thank you, this has been very helpful. I always ink in Flash now. :D
kushina2020 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010
do you use a tablet to do this?
Phil--K Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2009
Geez, I must have faved this years ago.
And seeing it again now, I figured to ask. What was your Smoothing set too?
SupaChibi Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2009
Oh, thank you so much! Do you know how handy your tutorial is? It helped me a lot in inking with flash, since I'm bad at Flash. :P

Thanks a ton! :D :D

So, in the Corpse Bride, do you remember the worm/maggot thing that lived in the Bride's head? Yeah. I'd imagine this dude to have a voice like his.

How do you get it from Flash to PS for colouring?
i-am-not-jesus Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2008
Thank you for this tut! I have been using Flash for 4 years and I have never been aware about the thickness control feature of the paintbrush>_>. Seeing as I just got a drawing tablet this Christmas, this is really useful.
Makksor Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2007
this tutorial was SO helpful!!
i've been opening Flash for ages now, and i still didn't figure out how to use the brush tool.
thanks, you're amazing.
MarkP0rter Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2007  Professional Filmographer
let me get this straight: you are telling people how to use the BRUSH tool in Flash and dare to call this A TUTORIAL? If somebody cant figure out the BRUSH TOOL I think he also won't be able to install and start Flash. Your next tutorial should be about how to save in Flash because if people can't figure out the brush tool is for drawing they really need a tutorial on how to save their art. Come on man those poor chumps are waiting for your how to save in flash since they figured out how to actually DRAW in Flash- all thanks to your AWESOME and VERY detailed tutorial.
B1nd1 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2007
OH, YOU. So full of sass :)
MarkP0rter Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2007  Professional Filmographer
Don't get me wrong though. I think you are a BRILLIANT artist. I've checked out your gallery and it's very overwhelming. In many cases it’s totally not my taste but still I can see you are having fun and you are skilled so that’s a wonderful thing. I don’t have to be ignorant towards art just because I don’t like what it’s about. Anyways your reply made me laugh. You are the first person EVER to talk to me and use the word “sass” which is hilarious. I just thought this is hardly a tutorial and everybody who managed to install Flash will be able to figure out the brush tool is for drawing but whatever. Just keep up doing your own thing and enjoy yourself. Peace :)
B1nd1 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2007
Hah no problem. It takes ALLOT to ruffle my feathers.
And honestly, the only reason the tutorial is there is because a friend of mine requested it :)
asplashofsunshine Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2007
Yeah. I'm gonna favorite like all your tutorials. (I SHOULD BE DOING MATH. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?!)
potterydoll Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2007
What do you use to draw?
Do you use your mouse, a scanner, or tabalet?
ahmad-y Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
What version of flash do you have?

in flash 8 there is not brush like that what you have!!
Panda-Go Featured By Owner May 13, 2007
Kewl, I'll try it, thnks!
Malicious-Alice Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2007
What version of flash do you have? Mine doesn't have a thickness control.
MnDcHn Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2007
wow..looks really simple.. question: if i want to color it in photoshop, what should i do?
Arc-en-ciel Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2006
:D awsome! JUUUST a quick question tho. If you answered it already, sorry! But do you use a mouse or a tablet to ink?
B1nd1 Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2006
Smorgasboredom Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2006
Wow, I've been doing exactly the same thing all these years - same brush type & everything. :3
Must be a good technique if it's that obvious & simple!
h1na Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2006
Oh wow, nice one =).
Strength Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2006
I take it you have a tablet?
jwanma Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Why not Illustrator?
MableTheRabbid Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2006
Question: Does that thickness control thing work with Wacom tablets only? I ask that because I had an Aiptek tablet [which I'm not using anymore :bleh:], and I have Flash MX, but no thickness control thing D:

Nice drawing though, and thanks for sharing :thumbsup:
LuigiTailz Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2006
I have Flash MX and a Tablet Also (I have a Wacom though) When I installed the driver for the tablet the next time I openned up Flash I saw that there was a thickness control. I don't use it, but it is there.

So it's probably just your tablet.
MableTheRabbid Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2006
So it is! D: Aiptek tablets suck so much...
LuigiTailz Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2006
I've never heard of an Aiptek Tablet... and probably for a good reason too XD
moonground Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Exactly... i also have one which was cheap and works awfully
durtyhippie Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2006   Filmographer
in in flash & color in ps? or you just stay in flash as well?
Tegon Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006
question: my flash doesn't open photoshop files what can i save it as so it keeps the layers but I can open in both programes?
spaniel Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2006
*Chuckle* x) Well, it's simple to follow! :heart: if I could only find the brush tool...
Phil--K Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2006
Ah, this is just the kind of turoral I need.
Much Thanks towards making this. :)
thepiratemofia Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2006
Do you use a fantsy-pantsy tablet or you're mouse to draw them lines?

And he reminds me of a puppet Neil would have.

Interesting...bitmap sketch...Must remember that...
betsybauer Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Hayyy yeahhh... I think I like this technique better than photoshop inking. 1, it's faster. 2, it's cleaner. So sweet. Thanks for making the tut!
BecSparrow Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2006
beautiful! this is really helpful thank you :+fav:
one-duck Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2006
awesome & teh handy
Ayem Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2006
Short, sweet, and to the point.
MeltedTuna Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2006
You must have a steady hand, or quick strokes, or something. I always draw wobbily lines, even with a tablet. Or maybe Flash is better than Photoshop for drawing. I guess I oughta try drawing in Flash now.
Okami-Youkai Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2006
whoooo, this should help for the day if/when I finally get flash :giggle:
In-Tays-Head Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome! ^_^ Flash is pretty good for inking, it seems...
Yeah, I gots a question- how do you get the lines colored? I assume that's Photoshop-tweaking, but how do you go about that?
