- [Instructor] Coloring or drawing starts … with a process that's called flattening. … Flattening means to select different areas … of our drawing … and to fill them with flat colors. … These flat colors are arranged … on separate layers … that can later be used to easily work … on specific elements of our coloring. … So let's go ahead … and the first thing that I want to do … is to create the layer group … to hold all the layers that I'm going to create. … I have the drawing selected … and I press and hold the Control key … and on the Mac, that would be the Command key … and I press on the new layer group icon. … By holding the Control key … or the command key on the Mac, … I make sure that the new group … is created below the drawing … and not above it. … I can rename the group. … I call it Colors … and I create a new layer inside this group. … And this is the first layer … that I want to fill with a flat color. … I zoom in a little bit … and the first part of the drawing … that I want to select is the eye patch. …
