First, you should learn about layers. They are great, trust me. They are just like "art saver".

1) Make a new layer(usually in layer tab) and edit its name to "Sketch"
2) You can sketch on it first.
3) When you're done, create a new layer.
4) This layer is the lineart, and you just need to follow the traces.

Your tablet will make the works easier =)
