Step Four: Drawing a Simple Curve

Curves are a little more of a challenge than straight lines but as long as you remember that you are placing anchor points and not drawing curves you will be ok. With curves, instead of clicking, you click, hold and drag out a direction handle to define the path of a curve. In the arc below, the arrow indicates where the direction handle is going as well as your path.

Example: Download the Flash Drawing Template  Draw 224c  (Simple Curves)

  1. Select the: Pen Tool
  2. To start the curve: Click & Hold
  3. To pull out the Direction Line: Drag
  4. To drop the Direction Point: Release
  5. To get ready to place a second anchor point: Move the Pen (Do not drag!)
  6. To continue the curve: Click & Hold
  7. To pull out the Direction Line: Drag
  8. To drop the Direction Point: Release
  9. To finish the line: Ctrl Click

    Suggestion: Before moving on I would suggest that you try drawing several other curves. Here are some more that you might want to try.
