Digital print colour testing.

Here are some examples of colour testing.  I found hand painting then scanning my drawings onto the computer was more effective than using the colouring tool in photoshop.

As seen in image above non coloured sections in image are showing up as yellow as this is the sketch book page.  I have gone back into photoshop to clean this up for a better print finish as below.
