Thank you so much for this tutorial! I sort of found it halfway through this image, so I wasn't able to utilize it to its full awesomeness, but I will definitely use this technique from the start for my next my mane/forelock.

In the second step, it shows you how to get your layers right so you don't draw over your lines! :D Click and drag on the layer to move it underneath the lines layer. :)

It's looking at tutorials like these that make me want to get a tablet, which I have the money for right at the moment. :heart:

Nice tut, it's very informative, if a bit large. But better than being too small, right? ;D
