Art Layers

Art layers give you the possibility to divide the artwork in your drawing on different layers. For example, you can separate the outline and colour fill on two art layers, similar to 1950s traditional cell animation. These art layers are contained within a single drawing as opposed to the timeline layers or Xsheet columns where individual drawings with individual timing are stacked one on top of the other—see Creating Strokes .

Toon Boom Harmony drawings include two layers in Advanced Art mode.

Line Art
Colour Art

Art Layer Toolbar

You can access the Art layers through the Camera and Drawing views bottom toolbar. By default, the art layers are hidden. Everything is drawn on the Line Art layer. You need to enable the Use Advanced Art Mode option.

Each layer can be used for separate hand-drawn animation tasks, letting you organize your work and facilitate creation and revision.
