About step 7. Do I need to make a new layer for every flat colour I have?

It depends, you can usually just get away with making sure each different colour on one layer doesnt touch, making a new layer until everything's coloured. Some people like having a new one for each colour, but personally I dislike having 50 layers in one colourful piece haha.

Thanks a lot, I'll remember that. For now, I just have to work with my 50 layers because I got impatient and didn't wait too long for a response. Nice works, btw, I'll fave some of them right now. :)
