How to Draw With the Pencil Tool in Flash CS3 One way that you can draw in Adobe Flash is by using the pencil tool. To select the pencil tool it’s a picture of a pencil, go ahead and click that in your tool box and then on your properties tab, you’re going to get some options here. You have the stroke height so you could go ahead and you can make that a smaller stroke if you’d like them. I’m going to go ahead and change it and you could also change the color if you’d like and you can pick whatever color that you want to use and I’m going to go ahead and stick with black I think. You could choose a different style of line if you want and then if you go to custom then you can actually see the thickness and the type of line applied before you actually use it. I’m going to go ahead and stick with the pretty simple thin black line here and the pencil tool allows you to do totally free form art which makes it where you can add a lot of details to your Flash but if you’re a little bit artistically talent and such as I am, the results could be kind of mixed. So I’m going to go ahead and give this a shot and you just go ahead and you click on your stage and then you just draw your shape with your mouse and you could see it’s pretty rough because it is truly like you’re drawing with the pencil. I’m going to go ahead and do some feet and I’m going to do some hands. Just scroll up here and I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to draw a little face and get myself a small hair up here and hit my selection tool and I click some more of my stage and its going to go ahead and it’s going to undo and it’s going to select all of the control drawings that I’ve done and you could see now that I have my pencil drawing. Good thing is as I could go ahead and I can select one of this and I could go ahead and I could move the curve or I can actually move what I’ve done so I could go ahead and I could adjust this a little bit and to get the exact look that I want for my drawing.
