Game Development Reference
If you're new to Flash, I hope you enjoyed this chapter on how to draw basic objects and characters.
The Flash drawing tools give you a great deal of control and are very easy to use. For designing game
characters and environments, they're ideal.
I covered quite a lot of new material very quickly, so if this is your first time using vector-drawing
tools, you might want to take a short break and experiment further. Create a new blank FLA file and
create a few objects and characters. You'll soon become comfortable with it and, if you're like me,
Flash will soon become your favorite drawing application.
In this chapter, you created objects. From a programming point of view, objects are things you can
control with programming code. In the next chapter you'll bring these objects to life with a bit of
simple programming magic.
