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

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.
