I'm not going to go into how to prep your work for digital coloring or anything like that. plenty of tutorials online for that if you would like me to point some out I will. I found some good ones that work best and are minimal work and produce a better end result. http://tetsuk0.deviantart.com/art/TUTORIAL-Coloured-Lineart-V5-132211116 This is the first of a series of videos I will post just going through my creative process digitally coloring. I am an amateur not a professional by any means, I'm a viner just like you guys. It just so happens I had a bit more liquid cash to blow and spent it on this.
At about 3:49 I mention something about the selection tool. What I meant to say (sorry it was like 4am) that when selecting an area like I had done to color the background of that area I already had the ladder and rails surrounded by my pen tool path so that area wasn't affected by my coloring. And when I went to color the actual ladder I pressed (CTRL+SHIFT+I : Select Inverse) which will make the selection tool flip and now the ladders and rails are selected and the background is safe from modification. And that's just a neat trick you can use when coloring certain things without having to re-select everything with your pen tool.
