You can use the brush tool in Flash to paint on you’re objects or with your drawings. So to select it go ahead and click to select the brush tool and you got to go down here and you’re going to have a couple of options to use with your brush tool. First of all is the color if you like to change the color you could go ahead and click right here and then you could pick one of this colors or you could go up and use your color picker and you can pick whatever color you want to use to get the look that you want.
And I’m going to go ahead and I am going to make some hair here and I can also change what kind of painting I want to do if I want to paint normal fills, paint behind, paint selection or paint inside. I’m going to go ahead and do normal right here because I’m going to put some hair on my stick figure. I could change the tip if I want and this is just the size I’m going to make it pretty small so I can get the details of the hair and then I have the different shape that I want to use. I mean that’s going to be the shape of my tips, so I’m going to go ahead and pick one for my hair.
So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to go up to my stick figure and I’m going to go ahead and draw my hair and this color is almost the color of pencil that I had up here, so it’s a little bit hard to see the difference.
But if I don’t like what I’m doing I can always go back and erase it or I could simply go back, choose a different color, choose a different tip if I wan and go back and simply go over. Okay, so I have some hair for my stick figure. Let see how this other painting options work so if you go down you have paint fills, if you click on paint fills what this will do and let’s make my tip a little bigger. What this will do is this will simply paint a fill inside of you’re shape and you could simply do that and it’s going to paint a fill inside of your shape.
Another option that you have is you could go back and you can do paint behind. And when you do paint behind you could draw over the object and it’s going go ahead and it’s going to actually put it behind the object.
I could so paint selection and that’s going to go ahead and that’s going to paint whatever I had selected. Let me go back and select this first. And then I should be able to draw and get a selection inside. Now I can also go and I could choose paint inside and I really like this tool because I can go ahead and I can paint and it’s going only going to keep what I’ve painted inside the object.
So that’s how you use the brush tool to paint inside Adobe Flash.
