Anonymous asked: Hey, I"ve been trying to animate on firealpaca and I"m having trouble, I wanna know if you just can"t do this or if I"m too stupid to figure it out. I drew the first frame (let"s say, a face), and for the second one I don"t want to make another drawing because the second frame is basically the same face with the eyes closed. Is there a way to "copy" a drawing and paste it in other frames so I can modify it? Sorry for bad English, still learning.

There are two ways to do this!

1 - Use copy and paste, at the top right corner click edit, under edit click copy, then click edit again and click paste. You’ll have two of the same layer lined up perfectly and you can edit them however you want!

2 - Under your layers (Which are on the bottom right by default) there are four buttons. The second button from the left (The second one closest to your picture) is a duplicate button. Select the layer you want duplicated and click the button, you now have two layers with the same image you can edit however you want.

Another thing I suggest is to have onion skin mode on when you animate, it’s really helpful, some people don’t like it but it helps me a lot! If you don’t know how to find and use it just ask!

I hope this helped if not I’m sorry I’ll try again!

“I use onion skin mode, I tried what you said and when I paste it it pastes into another layer aside from the one I wanted to put it on, and that messes up the order of the frames and ends up looking bad. Is there a way to paste it in the layer that I want and not a new one? Thanks” -What was asked

my response -

1) When you paste it it’s going to make a new layer, if you want the layer to be in a certain spot you can drag it up or down.Or you can click the layer you want the pasted image above and it’ll drop right there.

2) But if you want to combine it with an already existing layer you can use the merge down button beside the duplicate layer. Before merging make sure the two layers are on top of each other.

As far as I know you can’t paste it on to a layer you’ve already created, you have to merge or redraw it. Sorry I didn’t help the first time, if this is useless again let me know! I’ll help you figure out a solution!

“Yeah sorry I’m tired and I’m figuring out how to animate instead of sleeping, thanks!” -What was said

My response - No Problem! I’m glad I could help! Sorry it took a few guesses…
