Sales instructional comics

Here's one of two different comic strips I drew that were part of a sales manual for T-Mobile employees. During the development process, the team really liked the look of my pencilled art, so we decided to work with that look for the final strip rather than my usual inked line work.

i've never colored over pencils (or at least they always looked like shit) what tips do you have for the process?

You can't use the bucket tool to do fills like you would with line art. make 2 layers in photoshop - pencils as the top layer and with its attribute to multiply. Create the colors on the bottom layer using the pencil or brush tool to draw in the shapes freehand (it's okay to get a little sloppy, the soft pencil line will cover up errors). There are some other tricks involved but that's pretty much the gist of it.
