There are basically two different ways you can color sketches ...correction: there are probably a*million* ways, but explained in this tutorial are the 2 basic ways *I* choose to use. Depending onthe look I want I either scan the original as
line art
(black and white drawing) or 
(blackand white photo) at about 150 to 300 dpi. The smaller your end product will be the closer to 150dpi you'll want to go.Line art is what you use when you intentionally want to eliminate the gray tones in your art, whilegrayscale is a good choice for scanning pencil sketches, which leaves in all those soft, varyingsubtleties of your pencil lines.Keep in mind that even when you use the line art method your drawing will "soften" a little themoment you resize it, but being Photoshop allows you to keep your outline separate on it's ownlayer, you can always give it a quick "sharpening", just before saving it for the web, withoutdisturbing your other layers.As a tutorial sample I've done a quick sketch of my old landlady (uh, sorry about that) ...maybenot the BEST sample I could give, but - oh well. Anyway, this is a detail of how both methods scanin. Notice the photo setting also brings in the middle gray and texture of your paper. Again,depending on the photo-realistic look you're going or not going for, you may want to suppress thateffect by adjusting your "levels" once in Photoshop - or use the line-art setting to begin with.
What scan setting you choose will determine which method of  coloringyou'll use....
Coloring - Method One
when your art is scanned as line art/drawing
First, go to "image" and change your "mode" from bitmap to grayscale. A menu will pop upallowing you to type in your grayscale size ratio. By default, it should say 1. If so, just click OK.Then go back to "image", "mode" and select "RGB"... this will get you ready for creating your webgraphic in color.Double click the italicized word
in your Layers palette. Your "Make Layer" menu willpop open allowing you to name that layer. Name it "line" and then Click OK. Separating your linethis way keeps it safe and out of the way, so you can color and recolor, on another layer, withouttouching your original.Click your Zoom Tool (looks like a magnifying glass in your tool bar) and zoom in real close to anyarea in your drawing which is black. Switch to your Magic Wand tool and click on (select) one of the black areas. This will add a "dancing ants" selection to that area. To select all of the blackareas in your drawing, while the selection is still on, go to "Select" and then "Similar". You mightbe too close to notice, but now all the black in your drawing is selected. Go to "Select", "Inverse"and then hit your "Delete" key on your keyboard. This will remove everything that is not black - inother words - all your white paper area.
