I recently aquired the newest version of Flash MX (please don't ask how) and found that besides making web pages and animation...

It's fun to draw in also. Here's my little sketch.

Pretty cool. I myself have had flash mx for a while, and it's pretty sweet. I tend to draw a lot of stuff for my site on that program and just export them as a jpg. But I would definately take a look at the tutorials for flash mx. You slowly get drawn into animation and can make some pretty cool stuff. I also have photoshop CS, which is an awesome version of adobe. As for how I got them...um...how about them yankees?

Shhhh, you've stumbled upon my secret.

I use Flash MX for various animations and games, and more recently nerf gun concepts. Recently we beheld my shotgun concept, and in the future, i've almost finished my M4A1 Carbine concept that i've PM'd Ironman [he was asking about my previous shotgun animation], CX [because i could] and TIG [back on NHQ]

I've been working on it since, but i havnt actually had spare time for the last three weeks. And for once thats actually true.

I use the ordinary Flash MX, but i have MX 2004 upstairs in my bedroom somewhere. The guy thought it would be funny to write porn on the CD. It's no wonder its remaining in my bedroom.

Anyway, tonnes of sites like VG Cats and many others simply use Flash for their cartoons [amongst other things] and save to .jpg formats. My dad also won a PC Tablet at an IT conference, the thing's mad, but a little too sensitive.

vector drawing is the stuff. I have a copy of flash mx 2004 and photoshop, they're both really awesome tools for any image making.

Try $500 for the full version, $200 for an upgrade, and a free thirty day trial. You could also ask around for the "you know what" copy of flash mx.

Also about $150 give or take for the student version, which has the exact same features.

Student versions rawk.

Your university book/computer store will be able to order very steeply discounted MS and Macromedia products. Adobe doesn't discount theirs nearly as much. There are also lots of programming tools on the cheap. I got Sybase Powerbuilder Enterprise (about $2k retail) for $199 a couple years ago.

Volume licensing is also super cheap for Macromedia stuff. I get Flash, Fireworks, and Dreamweaver MX 2k3 for $15 per license because my employer has a deal for ~300 seats and we're an education customer.

Yep, I made about $1200 making websites with it.

Now I don't even need to buy it, cause my college supplies its students with free Studio MX (Including flash, dreamweaver, etc.) and Photoshop 7. Now I just need to find a good deal on Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Audition...

Awesome Peter drawing.
I also have Flash MX, but I prefer Flash 6, since I'm so used to its interface. We had to use it at school to make several projects in seventh grade, but since I had it at home too I got to make much better ones than the rest of the class. Unfortunately, my favorite one is officialy baleeted... *weep* Ah, well. I'll go make another one.
