Adding Depth to Line Art
Flash CS4 Tutorial
How to Stylize Line Art in Flash
Line art by itself can appear quite flat. One option is to use the Drop Shadow and Bevel Filters to add depth to your image.
Open a new Flash document and add some line art to the stage. Artwork should have a stroke and with no fill.
Select your artwork and set the line stroke to 5 pixels.
Select the line art and convert it to a Movie Symbol by pressing F8.
With the Movie Symbol selected, open the Properties panel, then open the Filters section.
Click the Add Filter icon and choose Drop Shadow.
Adjust the settings to enhance your drop shadow.
Click the Add Filter icon and choose Bevel.
Adjust the settings to enhance your bevel.
