Coloring Line Art in Photoshop

I occasionally get emails from people asking if I'll write a tutorial on how I digitally color stuff, and I'd love to, but I just don't have the time. Plus I use pretty ancient methods. I still color with a mouse, and no one should be encouraging and teaching that sort of archaic behavior. :) I tried to make the switch to a Wacom tablet a couple times, but could never really get into the groove. I do want to try a Cintiq someday. I think that'll work much better - maybe a more natural transition. Unfortunately the hefty price tag has kept me from getting one. Anyway, we shall see. For now, the mouse method works. It's slow, but it's what I'm used to.
