How Do I Made In Flash by JohnSu How Do I Made In Flash by JohnSu
You guys kept asking for it, so here it is!

Though maybe not what you were asking for.

Anyhow, I was drawing Maiden Flash and was going to make a video recording of the whole process with commentaries and stuff. But then it was too slow, and I gave up on it and instead shot the screen like 50 times during production - maybe for the better, since it took all day. AND I missed submitting it on Leap Day by like 3 hours. So tiiired....

Sorry if it's super rushed and vague and confusing - that's kind of how everything is on the internet.

Made in not-Flash

Flash © Adobe

EDIT: Oh yeah, super important - I use the paint brush tool, not the pencil/pen to draw. It's set at 50 smoothing, and I use the second smallest brush size for the line art. Plus, I'm using a tablet that allows me to control the stroke width using pressure sensitivity (you have to turn it on from the bottom of the tool bar).

Thank you for putting this together! I've found it damndably difficult to do illustrations in Flash that don't look like a child's fingerpainting.

I finished a lineart following these directions: [link]

Can I get some feedback?

Hm, her face is kind of strange. Her jaw line does not meet up with her ear, and her mouth has been pushed under one eye. There is also a strange connection between her cheekbone and her chin which causes her face to appear skewed

Thanks for the feedback. :) I'll work on my technique next time I do a project like this.

The biggest obstacle for me is pasting the lineart. How do you make it so that the lineart is white, but the exterior is blue?

That's the most confusing part for me. The rest I understood completely.

I draw a rectangle around the lineart, and then bucket-fill in the space in between the rectangle and the interior-art. The auto gap closing is set to "small gaps," but you can raise that to "medium gaps" if it's giving you too much trouble.

But how do you control the saturation of a layer?

You can't do that directly. The fastest way I can think of is to convert that layer into a movie clip, then apply an Adjust Color filter to it where saturation is one of the things you can change.
