Help Me!
Hi guys, I need help.
When I do stroke path its works fine, and I outlined this picture and blah blah blah, anyway i got the lines how I want it but now I want to use the Paintbrush to colour in the lines but when I use it, it goes threw the stroke path, how do I change it so it doesn't go threw the stroke path. To show you what I mean follow this leak and go to time- 1:54 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Yb3QbiCJ6E

RE: Help Me!
Looks like you are doing the sensible thing with a layer for the outline and a layer underneath for the fill.

You must mean this where the paint tool creeps outside the line in the layer above.

Use a selection to constrain the area painted.
Fuzzy select on the canvas, inside the shape in the drawing layer. Switch to the fill layer and paint.
You can concentrate on the edges, then turn off the selection for the inside details.

It can get a bit more complicated for preserving semi transparency
