Preparation

The optimal workspace for creating colour models and inking/painting in traditional animation includes the following views:

Xsheet
Camera
Drawing
Colour
Model

As there is no default workspace for these tasks, you will need to create a custom workspace for yourself—see the Fundamentals Guide.

You may have a character or element palette that has colours that are very similar to the Drawing and Camera view's background colour. For example, a white eyeball colour on a white background which makes it difficult to know if the zone was painted. You can change the background colour of the Camera or Drawing view in the Preferences dialog box.
