I organize my layers very particularly, so that it's easy to go back and fix mistakes.
From bottom to top:
Ground Shadows (Below everything else)
Details and Accents
Order of Operations
I follow the same order of operations whenever I draw something. I start with a rough sketch of what I want the character to look like, then I trace that smoothly and that becomes my line-art layer. Then I make a new layer and fill in the lines with a color, and then I go over that color with the colors I want with transparency locked. After that I do textures and after that shading. Then I go back and do some final touches, and then share it to the world! (or just reddit)
Haha wow! There's nothing here!
