I recently made the transition from inking by hand, to inking entirely in photoshop. It has taken my art to an entirely new level. It's great when you can step out of your comfort zone and embrace changes. It has improved the quality of my line work and my overall finished product. Above, you can see that I am inking over the lines of a scanned sketch. Next, I start dropping the colors on separate layers beneath the inked layer. Then, I add some shading, highlights, and the final step below is filling in the black lines with colored lines. Take a look below at the finished custom DJ character for DJ Steve S.
