Now we'll use the Fill tool. Fill Tool
First you'll have to make sure your shape is selected.
TIP: Select View > Hide Edges for hiding the dot pattern of a selected object!
In the illustration below I use that trick for hiding the dots. (The animation starts with the dotted shape.)

To fill the shape, hold the SHIFT key while you click and drag with the fill tool.
Start at the top of the shape, and drag to the bottom of it.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
