Flash Computer Art

I haven't drawn in a long time, but I used to dabble in drawing on computer inside Flash. With Flash you're restricted to figures that are sort of cartoonish in nature, so there's no shading, but the neat thing about vector art is that it's completely scalable. You can zoom in as much as you like without losing any detail at all. (You won't be able to zoom in on these images without losing detail because I saved them as jpgs for uploading to Blogger.)

These were all drawn with a mouse by the way. I've tried using those Waco drawing tablet-pen devices and find them more frustrating than anything.

    1. Well the idea is to draw at the kitchen table, scan the artwork in and then trace it out in Flash. With Flash you can tug and pull at lines, change their length or the slope of their curve etc. until you et them perfect. So you don't have to be great at drawing. I'm certainly not.
