please excuse the poor image quality, and the fact that this is far from done... I am entering a playbill cover contest for Carnegie Hall. The theme is "musical journeys". I'm doing the piece in black and white, but I want to digitally color it. How do I do that?? Is it possible in photoshop to lock the black part and color underneath it? I don't want to have to individually color each cell. Please let me know, thanks for the help :)

Create a New Layer over the drawing.
Set that layer to 'Multiply'
Paint on that layer.

That should do it.

Also here is a tutorial that shows a different way to do it along with some pretty advanced digital painting techniques, but I don't know how far you want to take it.

Heather, that drawing looks like it is going to be cool! And it looks like you already got the photoshop help you needed. I bet the finish is going to look really cool.
