Little help please from Java users

What layer do you draw the line art on so when you color or smudge or what-not, it doesn't effect the line art.

When I draw, I add a later and sketch on layer 2. Then I add a layer and draw the lineart (so it's usually layer 3). Then I add other layers to colour, putting them under the lineart. xD I don't know that's just me.

Thank you! smile I just get really frustrated on jave using only one later because you can't save the colors and when you smugde the line art gets ruined and its just a big mess that takes 10x's longer to color because you dont have the option to draw a guideline underneath like in flashdraw lol

That's why Java has the option to use layers. xD

I draw line art first, then set that layer to 'Multiply' instead of 'Normal', this removes the white spaces, leaving just line.
Layer 2 can then go underneath.

But if you create new layer from the beginning it will be empty and transparent so you wouldn't have to use multiply or whatsoever.

@ Predelnik

Yes, I don't understand why people draw on layer 1 when it's easier to just add a layer. xD

Btw, maybe everyone knows it but I still post this little trick here I guess: Brush size can be changed using bracket keys '[' ']'
Found it out while trying PaintTool SAI, and when I figured that ChibiPaint inherited a lot from that program))

O: It can?! That will help so much when I'm using reference and I have to resize the window so I can focus on details and hate getting the boxes in the way. THANK YOU. xD

Also, Miloona, when colouring on another layer, after filling in what you need to colour, select the box "lock layers"(orsomething) and it won't spread out of the area, but if you erase it just turns white so be careful.
