This is probably . . . a very retarded question. I just downloaded this program yesterday, and I learned most of it pretty fast.

The only question I have . . . Is how is the best way to stay in the lines? :'D

What I've been doing so far is coloring all over the place, then using the lasso tool to delete the parts that I don't want. If I try to color in the lines starting from the beginning, I have a hard time using big fluffy brushes.

Basically what I'm asking, is if there is any magic selection tools to select a specific area? Or a way I can lock the basic tones in place so I can shade it without going out of the lines? I'm used to the lock tool on Photoshop . . . So it's odd for me to have a lock tool that doesn't let you color on that layer at all . . .

God I don't even know if I'm making any sense D:

Sketchbook Pro is not PS, you have to use it a little different.

Each image I posted is one layer in my SBpro file. That way, I can control any color fill or shading. Makes life a little easier.
