:3 Thanks so much! The trick to one layer working is to tell yourself before you even start that you are going to do it on one layer It also depends though on what you plan to do, if I had to make a background or some other content they would each be on another layer.
Thanks again for the comment It's also strangely refreshing being able to go all out on just one layer.
I honestly didn't even realize right away that it was digital - it looks so much like a pen sketch lol. This is really, really well done; the grain of the lines is nice and consistent, and texturing is beautifully done [it looks so realistic!], and I adore the way you did the shading of the eye sockets.
