Chapter 4. Win, Lose, or Draw? Draw!: Cr... > Look Ma, They’re Perfect

Look Ma, They’re Perfect

Ever wondered how Da Vinci drew that perfect circle? He used Flash, of course. Select the Pencil Tool from the Toolbar and make sure to set the Pencil Mode under Options to Straighten. I know, it sounds strange to use Straighten when you want to draw a perfect circle, but trust me on this one. Now draw the best circle you can on your Stage. If you get even marginally close, Flash will make it perfect for you. Now you can try drawing other shapes like ovals, rectangles, and triangles and watch Flash continue to make perfect shapes for you. Of course, Flash can only do so much, so don’t think that drawing some whacked-out circle will result in one that Da Vinci himself would envy. Flash simply does the best it can, so you have to get kinda close.
