Hey guys! I'm new here. I was just wondering what things you could recommend to me for flash animation! What kinds of tools will I need to get started? What kind of tablet should I use? Any good tutorials? What kinds of programs should I use? I am aware I need Flash Professional but is there any other programs that are quite helpful? Thank You.

I do not have much knowledge of flash, but fortunately there is a wiki designed forstuff like that.

This is in my humble opinion the best drawing tablet versus price that i'm aware of IF!! you have the cash. I found out that a cheap end tablet which you can't see what you draw directly to be annoying as ****
wacom tablethttp://nl.shop.wacom.eu/producten/cintiq/cintiq-12wx
Note: it's a see what you draw tablet which is great if you want to actually see what you draw right where your pen is.

Tip: 2 start following youtube tutorials how to setup your tablet functions. And start with youtube drawing tutorial vids to pick up the wraps or upgrade your skills.

Well,one thing that's important here is to rate on 5 submissions(on the Under Judgement page) daily,another thing that you could do is to go to the Forums and comment or make topics.
You can also Review games and try to collect medals from games,edit info of you,make news post on your account page,etc.

And those are things you could do around here,good luck!
