    .. make layers and do each value in sections... then go thru and blend or use whatever filter to help. ive never done realistic ones personally.. is it possibly because of the drawing quailty etc..?
    i mean like.. say the outline and all.. has little pen strokes you dont wa nt or whatever.. and little fragments of ink that arent seen on the drawing , but show up in the scan , what you should do is erase all those , possibly fuck with the contrast of the pic so it helps the black and white lines contrast to help the wand.. see what im saying.. if all else fails. shit send me the psp and i can try and see what methods best for you to use

    this is how i do...

    have your clean character outline on one layer.

    select an area to fill with the magic wand.

    select/modify/expand a couple pixels

    fill in a layer behind your outline

    do some shading or whatever you need to do in a layer between your outline and your flat color fill.

    hope that helps,

    poice
