How to Use Photoshop Layers in Digital Painting: A Complete Guide

Besides Ctrl-Z, layers may be the biggest advantage to painting digitally, rather than on paper or canvas

Layers allow us to separate and work on every single element of a painting individually. This is incredibly powerful.

For example, using layers we can:

  • Work on individual elements, characters, or even brush stroke without risk of messing up the rest of the painting
  • Move elements around, to play with different ideas for compositions
  • Easily paint over or under our linework, while still keeping the linework completely intact in a new layer
