Flash Tutorials: Pen Tool

This Flash tutorial shows you how to draw customized shapes with the Flash Pen Tool. The Pen Tool enables you to create complex shapes by combining both straight and curved lines in the same shape. These shapes are made up of paths, anchor points, and tangent handles that can be adjusted as the shape is drawn. To help make it easier to learn how to use the Pen Tool, we've drawn a triangle and circle on a layer below the layer on which we will practice. We'll essentially practice using the Pen Tool by reproducing, or tracing, the shapes on the layer underneath.
