Now that you have the basic outline, just select the paint bucket, pick the color you want, and paint the area in between the lines. Select the whole slash after that, go to the color selection for pencils, and select the square with a red line through the middle, as seen here:

That way, you have the slash you need c: go about five frames over and insert a keyframe, select the gradient that you have left and change the alpha setting under the paint bucket color picking thing to zero. it's right next to the square and red line, see:

Now it's time to shape tween it c: yeah, this is the purpose of shape tweening, it's like motion tweens for gradients and other things that aren't symbols. after you tween those frames, put a blank keyframe on the 6th frame and voila, you're done Very Happy
[/spoiler]

Pretty Way with Symbols:
Spoiler:
follow the above tutorial until you get to the point with the paint bucket. After you've selected your color, go over to the library and above that it says "color mixer"


change the type to "linear" and you'll get what showed up on that last screenshot, cept with the colors black and white. if your character's facing right, then change the left block to whatever color you want the slash to be and set the alpha to 0%. then go to the right block and change it to the color you want, and then click inside your outline to get a cool looking slash. you can change how far the boxes are from the edge, i don't know how to put what it does into words, but you'll figure it out pretty easily.

right click on the gradient and click on "convert to symbol." after you do that, go down to the blend tool and set it to screen, add, whatever you want, then go a few frames over, make a keyframe, and change that it to alpha there and you'll get something like this:
First Frame of attack

Last Frame of attack

the circled part is where you change it to alpha
after that you just tween, and you're done Derp?

Hope this helped c: if you're not clear on something tell me and i'll try to clarify

yea I dont have the the square with a red line through the middle, as seen here: thing on my flash.

What version of flash are you using? If it's flash 8 or CS3 you need to reinstall the program, cause I just checked both and they've got it.

If not, you can just alpha it out.

Now I'm just really confused.

All you need to do is draw your triangle, then fill it in with a gradient, and delete the outlines...

The gradient's the paint bucket thing. Another way to delete the lines without using that square thing, deselect the whole slash, then go to the lines so the mouse looks like a cursor with a curved line under it, click that once to select the lines, then press delete. I'd take a screenshot, but it won't capture my cursor.
