Custom drawing api advice?

[FONT=Trebuchet MS]hello,

i’m looking to make an interface that allows a user to draw on the screen by choosing from one of five colored pencils.

when they’ve finished making a doodle, they would click a button, and a customized text output would be generated based on the order in which they chose the colors.

i’m not too familar with actionscript, as my uses for flash up to this point have been mainly to make simple presentations. any help would be appreciated.

i’ve seen this tutorial——and i understand it fairly well, but moving beyond this to five colors and customized output is beyond my comprehension at present.

thank you,
