I separated Line Art and Color Art in Node View so that the light effects wouldn’t visually affect the line art layer.
For some reason, this causes line art from lower layers to show up over drawings from higher layers.
For instance, if I have the layers ordered from highest to lowest: Head → Neck
then the line work of the neck is showing up OVER the colour art of the head.
This is my new Node View setup: http://imgur.com/3Zqiabf.jpg
When I change the Nodes so that the Colour Art and Line Art aren’t separated (i.e. Group connecting directly to Composite without being isolated through “Line Art” and “Colour Art”), the layer ordering problem goes away. But obviously, it prevents me from achieving the desired lighting effects.
What might I be doing wrong now? I’ve verified again and again that my Line Art and Colour Art are properly set up & cleanly separated in the Drawing layers. I’ve also made sure that the layers are in the proper order. So I’m not sure why there is an ordering problem when the Colour Art and Line Art are isolated like this.
I’m out of ideas here… Thank you for any help.
Edit: To summarize my question, how do I set up my nodes so that the result will render in this order (from lowest to highest): Colour Art, Light Shader applied only to Colour Art, and then Line Art (so that Line Art isn’t affected by Light Shader) without the Line Art appearing over layers that it shouldn’t be.
