Accusative plural and nominative plural ?

I searched and found that the accusative plural was set as the following: -feminine and neuter: а/я -masculine: ы/и

But this seems doubtful to me. Is this the case ? Can I have some examples ? And in which phrase can the nominative plural be used ? I confuse both... Thanks

Russian accusative plural has the same form as nominative plural for inanimate nouns and the same as genitive plural for animate nouns. This applies both to nouns as well as to adjectives.


To be more precise, the adjective form is defined by the noun which it modifies:

"Я рисую белые цветы" BUT "Я рисую белых слонов"
