Don't Talk Back -- to the Mystic Yak!

Hurtling through the cosmos on a meteor rides the Mystic Yak. The cover is drawn with ink, and I'm going to color it with Photoshop, but I thought first I'd color a copy by hand to see if I could make my color choices before hand. I'll use this color sketch as a guide while I try to teach myself Photoshop.

Dude, it looks great... you're going to color it AGAIN? IF (big if) you can get a reliable scan, this is a fine job!

Thanks for saying so, but I don't like that it looks like marker on cheap paper. Maybe if I had done it on nicer paper. I know that the marker vibe actually worked for Jeffrey Brown's Change-Bots, but I don't know if I'd be happy with it. I kind of like the flat bright garish colors of the Silver Age comics, which I think I might be able to get with Photoshop.
