CS4. You can do this in pretty much any version of photoshop (from about CS2 to CS6).

Thank you! This will help me a lot! Finally decided to pick up my drawing hobby again, and I feel I've lost my touch.... back to my pre-school level, actually. Thank you!

Sometimes, that's the best way to get better fast (taking a long break). So glad this helped you! :3

When I print my line art, I use grayscale. But I'll try using B'n'W and see what happen. Good Tutorial. :)

When you resize the image (providing you scanned at a high enough DPI) the software you're using will convert the solid black lines to grayscale anyway, so I've always just used B&W. Makes fast flat coloring easier too because you can use the paint bucket tool (if you're adventurous, you can use the option of 'sample all layers' for the paint bucket and 'fill' in colors quickly on separate layers). Grayscale's nice for digital lineart or scanning at low DPIs, I think. Personal preference. XD

Thanks so much! <3

Thank you for uploading this. I needed to learn how to sketch the right way, so I can get better at more advanced drawings. So thank you.

There isn't really a right way to do things, just do what feels comfortable for you. If you're getting frustrated, try something entirely different. I know a fantastic artist who does all of his sketches and underdrawings in ballpoint pen, which is something I could never do.

Glad this helped you! It wasn't really meant to be a tut on sketching/inking and what not since it's supposed to focus on coloring, but if you gained something from it, that's awesome! :D
