    Deh Plague's 'Beyond Basics' Tutorial

    This is my first tutorial, so don't be too harsh. Note: I did this all in MACROmedia flash 8, and i don't thing Abode flash has much of a diffrence does it?


    Contents:
    1. Know the basics.
    1.2 The buttons
    1.2.1 Line Tool
    1.2.2 Fill Tool
    1.2.3 Transform Tool
    1.2.4 Oval and Square tool.

    1.2.6 Pencil Tool


    2 Animating a tad better.
    2.1 Making a 'thick' Body
    2.2 Further Questions.








    Know the basics

    1.2 Buttons
    Here in the buttons section i will show you the basic buttons for animation and such. I will not really explain on how to use them propperly, because, mainly this is a 'Beyond stickman animating' so i'll just show you the basic buttons.

    Line Tool:

    The line tool basicly looks just like this ^ It can be used for straight lines and such. Great for applying details to squares and such

    Fill Tool:

    The fill tool looks sorta of like this ^ but much better drawn (:P) It can be used for filling in details on clothing and such.

    Transform Tool

    The transform tool looks like a darkness filled mouse. Like such ^ It can be used for moveing items without having to redraw them. Pretty useful for professional animators

    Oval and Square Tools

    [img]http://**********.com/img/1239686129.gif[/img]

    Its pretty obvious what these tools do. They make ovals and squares! So easy am i right?

    Brush and Pencil Tool

    [img]http://**********.com/img/1239686324.gif[/img]

    This is what the brush tool looks like. Its usful for skectching things out in flash. The pencil tool is exactully the same. But, it has a more variety of sizes and such.



    Animating a Tad Better

    2.1 Making a 'thick' body.

    Heres a step by step tutorial on making a thick body.

    1: Make a little stickman with joints
    [img]http://**********.com/img/1239686548.gif[/img]

    2: Now make a little body surrounding the stickman. Don't mess with the head yet.

    3. Now erase the stickman inside the little body. But still, do not mess with the head.

    4. Now! Trace a bigger circle that matches with the body thickness. Also erase the line seperating the head with the body.

    5. Now, fix the body, such as make the limbs match up with eachother evenly. Also, apply some detail to the head/face.

    6. Your almost done! Know just apply detail to the rest of the body.

    7. Fill in the rest of the body. Yur done mate.

    Anymore questions? I'll be free to answer them!
    And note i'm not a flash pro, so don't ask me questions about effects and crap.
    Thanks!

    Also, not trying to be harsh, but I don't think you should make anymore tutorials until you are a bit better. You have the drawing skills of a 5 year old and the tutorial was very unclear and iffy at points.

    The tutorial was okay, but the technique you used to make a "Thick Body" was horrible.

    If you are going to make your first tutorial, start off with something small and basic.
    I don't mean to sound mean/rude but your tutorial is bad.

    Re: Deh Plague's 'Beyond Basics' Tutorial

    Sorry mate but like the others said... Not a very good tutorial.

    OFF TOPIC.

    Does Flash cost to get?

    Skype: Yes

    Oh, darn.
