Do you think that lineart should be done on one layer or multiple layers?

I use a few leayes
1) BG
2) sketch, just to see where I should draw
3) the painting itself. I try not to use lineart, so I don't have a specific layer for it
4
5

^ :D
I sometimes add layers and start painting on them but at some point i just merge them all and continue on the 1. and BG layer is usually saved for the last.

of course there a layers for procession, adding light light and contrast and etc. but by that time my whole painting is on 1 layer.

I'm only beginning at drawing lineart digitally, so I use different layers. I do the general shape in one layer, then I do the details in different layers, but when I'm happy with the result, I merge all the lineart layers into one.

Depends on how many mistakes you make.
I often do detailed work in a different layer because, when I make a mistake then, I don't identically erase the base lines that were good.
But it's all a matter of personal preference.

I used to use a whole bunch of layers but now I just stick to one since it was too much to jump between layers all the time.
If it's something I know will take me a few tries before I like it, then I'll use another layer.

I do all of my lineart on one layer.

for painting and airbrushing I use only one layer since it doesn't matter at the end it'll be erased, but when it comes to anime, I usually do the body in one layer, the hair on another and the background on a third one.

I do it pretty much all on one layer. The only thing I'll put on a separate layer is stuff like hair or fur, because that changes so often when I paint it that I want to be able to easily adjust it without screwing up the rest of my lines.

It doesn't matter. You can do it whatever way you want. It's like asking should I use this black pen or the other black pen. Do however you feel best.

when I do linework, I like to do a couple draft layers but the final version is always on one - other,wise it interrupts the line flow for me.

I like to lineart on multiple layers because it's much easier to go back and change something that way. It probably wouldn't hurt to go out of your way to use multiple layers.
