Simple Coloring in Flash

I wanted to animate the tutorial from the get-go, but didn't have any ideas of how to make it entertaining. I had a different idea and the audio already recorded (basic spoken instructions with some bad jokes thrown in) but I hated it. Anywho, on the way home from work, nothing was on the radio, so I started playing with the "I am T-pain" app on my iphone, picked the "bartender" track and improvised the audio in this Flash. After that I just did some [very] limited animation with the screenshots I had for the text version of the tutorial that got scrapped.

tl;dr version: I freestyled the song in the car and drew pictures to it.


well aint this a ...

I have been looking FOREVER for a good teacher for flash art, but mostly i find is pre recorded videos of people remaking sprites with little to no description to what to do. Then I stumble upon a poorly made rap song and ended up drawing a very good link... I swear random crap happens to me when I least expect it.(I wanted to learn more about a software called c++ next thing I know three brunettes are in my room teaching me how...) So thanks

Haha neat, and you freestyled it?

Really not bad. And a great idea overall. Sure, graphics aint superb, and maybe some more frames in the flash screen, with sharper quality for the icons, wouldn't have hurt, but together with the song one knows what to do. So yeah, I would say your project is not perfect, but a complete success, atleast its my 5 bucks worth


First tutorial that is funny and so usefull... +5 +10 and added to favoritees woah man you rock :D

Figured this out a while ago

But it is definitely the best way. Just so everyone knows, double clicking the red lines will select groups of them faster.

Ha ha, brilliant

Best Flash tutorial since How to NG Animator God.
