the lines are a layer, the colors (figure) are a layer, and the background is it's own layer. It just depends on the versatility I need (do I need to move something around or not), but painting on one layer isn't out of the question. That's just eliciting painting in real life. There aren't layers to mess with. You just paint. Yeah a graphire is fine, it has pressure sensitivity.
Fighting the delusion that the computer makes you better, one noob at a time.
