Ok, I'm an amateur Computer Graphics artist, as in I don't make money off of it, but I plan to make it a career, I've been reading some different lit on the subject and it suggests making a digital portfolio. (ie. a website) One source suggests that I should use Flash to make a more "interactive" site, with animated drop-down menus and such, but currently, I have no Idea how to use flash. Does anyone know of a tutorial recoucre and possibly a free/open source Flash creation program? On another note, would Java be more suited for the job or should I try to learn Flash?
Your help and advice is greatly appreciated,
