I have been using the free vector drawing tool InkScape. It is awesome! http://inkscape.org/download/
It works on Windows, Linux and the Mac.


I am thinking of implementing singing pumpkins ans Christmas trees for this year In order to do this I will parse and use the papagayo phonetic files. http://www.lostmarble.com/papagayo/
papagayo will take a sound file and produce a text with the phonemes identified


My plan is to put animated images on my megatree.


So , If you are interested please look at this short tutorial that shows how to draw a pumpkin in InkScape. http://screencasters.heathenx.org/wp-content/videos/ep038.ogv
watch it even if you dont plan on making a pumpkin. you will see some of the power of inkscape.


So I need multiple images with different mouth shapes to match the phonemes. We could also make the pumpkin/tree blink sometimes.




If someone could make up 3 or 4 shapes i could test the software. I will use the movie engine to flip through the images.


thanks

If you use the port of papagayo done by ItsMeBobO there are a number of shapes that come as part of that package.
