The transition from digital, to oil, and back to digital...
On the left is a digital under painting I drew in Photoshop. The middle piece is a result of printing out that under painting and glazing oil color over top. I guess I just wasn't ready to put the brush and paint away. On the right I took out the middle process and did a color overlay in Photoshop.

The finished painting, done in Photoshop using a color overlay. Getting from the finished comp to full color is relatively easy since the values were already established. Kind of like glazing oil washes over a solid under painting.
This wound up being the cover of Seahorses - By Jennifer Keats Curtis, Henry Holt and Company.
Here the sketch is refined and starting to move towards color by creating a neutral half tone. Magenta usually works for me if I know the color palette will be on the cool side.
