Just got flash, and new to animation? Does anyone know of a good site
for flash tutorials, or can you recommend a good book. The book that
came with it is pretty useless.
Thanks so much.

I like Flash, it's going to take some time to get going, like
a few weeks, but I think it'll be worth it in the long term.
Hopefully, in the next year or two, browsers will include the
flash plugin. And I'll be ready! From what I've seen, sites
built with Flash are exciting - much more interactivity - loads
fast - sounds - !!
I purchased a book from Barnes and Noble, which came with
Flash (CD), good for 90 days.

A Drawing Tutorial and Coloring Line Art in Flash Tutorial
I have completed two free tutorials for aspiring graphic artist who want to
understand the basics of graphic design, and the foundation of drawing from
a simple sketch to a professionally completed finished product.
The Tutorials are:
A Drawing Tutorial: - This tutorial covers drawing a samurai figure from a
stick figure (mannequin) to the developing steps to build the figure up to a
fully armored, inked and colored finished product. The tutorial also covers
tips on drawing, scanning, and transforming line art to vector graphics.
Coloring Line Art in Flash:- This tutorial covers coloring line art in
greater depth then the first tutorial. The tutorial covers penciling,
inking, scanning, converting to vector, mid-tones, shadows, highlights,
gradients and transparencies.
Each tutorial is creating in Flash 5.0 and will require the Flash 5.0
plug-in. You can download a projector version of these tutorials if you do
not use flash 5.0 from the main website.
Feel free to distribute these tutorials, add them to you website, forward
this e-mail to a friend, what you find useful will be useful to someone
else, so share these free tutorials with your community.
If you have any graphic related tutorials, or any good graphic sites, or
