How to Draw With the Pen Tool in Flash CS3 One way that you could draw an Adobe Flash is by using the pen tool. Go ahead and click to select the pen tool in your tool box and the pen tool is going to put down the series of anchors and then connect those anchors by straight lines and you can either keep those lines straight or you can curve them. Let me go ahead and draw some clothes for my stick figure so I’m going to go ahead and I am going to click, and I am going to add the sleeve here. This is my first anchor point and then my second anchor point and I’ll just go ahead and connect it self. I want to keep going and you could see that it keeps connecting itself. And I’m going to go ahead and I am going to do two separate here because I want to curve the middle and we got kind of a lap side and jerk that’s okay we could fix that so if I put my pen tool over here then I could go ahead and I can add an extra anchor if I want and that allows me to be able to curve just this portion between the two anchor. So, I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to use my selection tool and as I put it over there I’m going to get a little curve line under my mouse. I can then click and I could curve it down to create a little color. I can also try to make this a little plus noticeable. I went ahead and move that down. So we’re going to go ahead and continue and I’m going to make some pants and it’s a good way to get kind of exact straight lines. I like using a little bit more than free form and then I love the fact that you can always go back and then you can always curve your lines a little bit to get the look that you exactly want. So that’s how that you could draw with the pen tool in Adobe Flash.
