no it's ok. don't worry about it. i wasn't trying to say you were annoying or anything, it just sounded like you wanted some guidance.
i'm kind of curious how you're cleaning the lineart and colouring... but i think you might be using a multiply layer? if you rip the white out of the scanned image, it's much easier to clean/edit the lineart and colour underneath it. it's also really easy in photoshop and takes seconds. i thought maybe you were using gimp so i couldn't show you this, but you aren't!! i can. so that's what i'm going to do first
first tho you have to desaturate your image and then play with levels until you get nice black lines. if you're playing with levels right now you aren't playing hard enough!! (if you don't know what it is it's image > adjustments > levels, and i'm pretty sure you know, but just in case.) you can get rid of most of the grey on the image just by fucking with it a little, even if it's kind of a bad quality phone pic. get as close to black as you can without compromising your line quality. if there is still grey shit you don't want or errant sketch lines on your picture, they should be more visible after levelling, making them easier to erase. cleaning up is important. always clean up lineart.*
it kind of sucks to clean up inked lineart that you drew atop a graphite pencil drawing though, because no matter how lightly you press and how good your eraser is, there will always be bits that you miss or ghost lines that you thought you erased but came back to haunt you after you level. you can almost completely skip this aggravation by sketching with a pencil crayon (bright red is best but since you can just add a hue layer that makes it red anyway it doesn't matter what colour you use *that* much, as long as you can see it clearly while drawing ofc).
after that follow this: http://goo.gl/RIW8Gu i kind of wanted to link to something that isn't
