New to TBA - Grouping a drawing for Distributing to Layers?

I have a question, I’m totally new to this software and I’m trying to rig this drawing I just did of a Caveman. I’ve been trying to follow along a tutorial that suggests I distribute the drawing to separate layers. The only problem is that my drawing is composed of several different lines, rather than a continuous shape, so as you can imagine, distributing all those lines leads to my drawing ending up in 17 or 20 layers, when really, I just want 3. I tried “grouping” the drawings, but that doesn’t work either. I’m sorry if this is a duplicate thread, I’m a n00b…

You can put multiple lines on different drawing layers. If you only have 3 distinct areas that you want to animate just have 3 drawing layers and put all the lines that move together on that one layer.

Mhm, why didn’t I think of that? Thank you!
