I just attempted to draw in Flash for the first time. I had thought I wouldn’t have a problem with this assignment, since I was already comfortable with vector drawing using Illustrator. Hah. It took me about an hour to create what it would take me 15 minutes to create in Illustrator (part of a lime). I much prefer Illustrator, but we’re supposed to draw everything in Flash for this class. I also don’t like how transparency is tied to color rather than to a layer.
Before I started working on my homework this afternoon, I created the graphics for new layout for here. I think I’m going to go work on creating the code for it and then upgrading to WP 1.5
