My process for an editorial assignment, from sketch to final - part 3

Here is the last part of my process for an editorial assignment. The third part shows how I scanned and edited this illustration to make a colorful image for the cover of the new Uitagenda. And since all the editing and coloring has been done on the computer, I thought it would be best to make a little movie. So now you can see and hear me as I show the entire digital process! The movie is in English and can be viewed in three parts. You can also watch them in HD to see more details, but you'll have to go to Youtube (click the Youtube button below the movie clips). 

You can also view part 1 and part 2 of this tutorial.

Video 1 - Cleaning up your scans and adjusting the contrast. 

Video 2 - Editing the line work.

Video 3 - Coloring and adding textures.

I also made some screenshots so you can have a quick peek at the process of the final illustration. I've highlighted the functions I've used so you can understand better what is happening. For detailed instructions, please view the video. This is just a little extra thing, enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed these tutorials, of course feedback is always appreciated. You can also read the other parts of my process for this illustration here:

Hey Sabine Nice work, when you scan your drawing into Photoshop I noticed you are nudging to line up your drawings which it takes along time, I know because I used to do it the same way. I discovered photomerge tool, it’s great it dose it for you very fast and simply. I use cs4 Photoshop; it’s under file, Automate, and then click on photomerg.
