Whats up, everyone. I animate with Flash and also use it to draw. It has a great drawing tool that helps with contouring the lines. If you'd like a cleaner look though, you can use the actual line tool, but I find that to be less intuitive. There are lots of tutorials out there and other ways to get started. The animation is done on a timeline via tweening and it works pretty well depending on your experience. The newer versions of Flash also have filters for basic lighting effects, which I've been experimenting with. Feel free to PM or post any questions, this forum has lots of experienced and talented production artists.
