Basic Shading

(Disclaimer: While this tutorial is made with Animate CC in mind, this method also works the same in Flash 8)
First, draw the object you want to add shading to.
Image
Next select your pencil tool and set it to a contrasting color. (MAKE SURE THE THICKNESS OF THE LINE IS SMALL, SUCH AS 1 or .5)
Image
Now using your pencil tool, Draw out the areas of the most extremes of the dark and the light on your object. (I would suggest using red to show the areas of shadow and green for the areas of highlight). You may draw the lines depending on the style / the shape of the character. (MAKE SURE THE PENCIL MADE LINES CONNECT)
Image
Now, with the base color selected (by the fill tool icon), open up Window > color / color mixer. The menu that will pop up should look like this:
Image
Now, choose your shadow / highlight color based on the style you want to go on. For most basic instances, I would suggest moving the "B:" slider. Making the number higher will make it brighter and making it lower will make it darker.
Image
Once you chose the colors you want, fill inside the lines you drew with the pencil tool.
Image
Once you filled it in and are happy with the results, you can now remove the lines by double-clicking the pencil line you drew, and press backspace or delete.

Badda bing badda boom! You got a thing~ Hope this was helpful if you have any questions you may respond to this post.

Side note: You can use this same method to make weapons. Same process, but different execution. You can probably figure this out if you are creative with what I have given you.
