We started with this cat: (See Part 1: How to Draw a Cat)
Now we need to draw a face for it.
To create the second eye, select all parts of the eye with the selection tool, hold down ALT, drag and release.
Nose and Mouth :
Draw straight lines at the sides of the face.
Where you place each part of the face greatly affects the character's expression.
Return To Part 1: How to Draw a Cat
It is entirely possible, and usually recommended, to make each part of the drawing a Drawing Object or Symbol.
This requires knowing how to navigate in and out of symbols, and was left out of this tutorial for the sake of simplicity.
You can learn basic principles of creating a Flash character with symbols in this Butterfly Animation Tutorial.
Exercise 2: Convert to Symbol + Break Apart
Exercise 3: Create Multiple Instances + Distribute to Layers
Exercise 4: Transform instances + color effects
Exercise 5: Edit Symbol + Navigate in and out of symbols
Exercise 6: nested symbols: Sun animation
Exercise 7: Duplicate + Swap
