??? I cant seem to get the search working for me. I can't really track down the information I'm looking for but Oh Well. Hopefully someone here can help me out. Does anyone know how or what program the famous and renowned Rich Burlew aka The Giant creates his strips? Possibly Flash? If so what version? I'm sure this has been asked again and again but I'm a wee bit noobish. ;)

I say go to either (a) the Comics thread, or (b) the FAQ section on your sidebar.

Yeah, here we go,
Q: How do you make the OOTS strips?

A: I use Adobe Illustrator, a high-end vector-based graphics program. Believe it or not, creating those little stick figures require an expensive design program and years of experience. Illustrator gives me the smooth blocks of color and nice lines that I think add a lot to the OOTS look. Plus, it allows me to save a series of frequently-used poses, which cuts down my production time.

In addition to the FAQ, stickied to the top of this forum is a thread which is a Guide to Making Avatars with Adobe Illustrator (http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=news;action=display;num=1115586717). That thread goes into great detail on how to make order of the stick inspired avatars using various programs. A good read if want to know more about the drawing style.
