Product Review Cartoon Smart Flash Tutorials

A few days ago, I discovered a fun and educational website called Cartoon SmartTM. Its creator, Jay Dyke, is a FlashR illustrator and animator and has worked in the field of animation since 1999. He created the Cartoon Smart website in 2004 to help others learn Flash illustration and animation the easy way with his Flash tutorials which you can purchase online and download (or on CD). The prices for his tutorials are very good considering all the information packed into each tutorial. The tutorials are in QuickTimeR format and can be played on any PC or Mac.

As always, I checked out the free stuff first. The first free tutorial I viewed was about how to draw a head and it latest 15 minutes. I was very surprised how easy Dyke made it look and you will be amazed at how much you can do with Flash as an illustration program. He also has some other free tutorials: Basic Flash Tools, Publish Settings in Flash and Import & Transition Images. Once you are convinced that his tutorials are worth the price, Dyke has several others for sale.
