Kind of a random post! This was my typical setup when drawing pets/items for subeta, and it still works quite well for overlays. I usually make a 2x size canvas (so for pets, 400x400 pixels), then using Window > Arrange > New Window for *canvasname*, open an extra window of what I’m working on and make it 50% of the size so I can kinda live preview how it’ll look when it’s been shrunk. Comes in handy for regular artwork too if you like to draw big. :D (The other open window in this case is a reference of my subject).

I use crappy layer names though. D:
