The key points from this module are:
To create a buffer, trace two drawings of the first key. Copy and "paste special" after the traced frame, then trace between the previously traced drawing and the newly pasted first key (The first key will sandwich the two traced drawings).
To add a background, hit "+" on the left of the timeline above the animation layer to colour card then in node view, hit the yellow square to access the properties for more colours for your background.
To access the layers on the right side of the screen, go to edit, click preferences, go to advanced, and make sure "support overly" and "underlay arts" is checked.
"K" on your keyboard reveals the line art strokes. Before colouring, hit "create colour art from line art", This allows you to keep your line art and colour separate.
The "Close gap tool" is used to close lines when colour bleed.
To add a blink, add two or six frames. Two is much quicker but six with easing is common.
