So, I'm more than a little rusty of drawing images straight into flash. "Then why would you?" you ask. Well, it's a productivity thing. I usually like to have a quick thumbnail on paper then re-create the entire drawing in flash. Also, for new poses in animation, it's a good way to get really comfortable drawing the character on model (having the model sheet or another pose on the frame before and using the onion skin). It's not for everyone but it works for me.
This first image was drawn straight into Flash. It's a quick sketch of a character for a show in development here in Quebec. The sketch given to me by the creators of the show had a small goatee but, when I showed up, my "abe/Ammish" beard inspired them. No big stretch for me to create the character. I'm not really sold on the colours but these where sampled from the original sketch given to me.
