Any reason folks can't have the best of both?? I know that inkers can
used light boxes or vellum or certain methods (at least I've been told
so) to "ink" a piece, but still keep the pencils intact. Couldn't
something similar be done with coloring?? Create a high quality
reproduction of the original, have Tom color that, and maybe even hang
'em both up! :) Don't know if it could be done or if it's a silly idea,
but I think that's the way I'd go.
