Colouring In Pages (Own Work)

I have created some Colouring in pages on Adobe InDesign, after hand-drawing some images which can be coloured in. I have used two different sizes of black pen to differentiate between the main outlines and extra patterns and details, etc. I have then scanned them in to the computer (selecting a high quality scan), edited them to increase the contrast and make them include extreme blacks and whites, and put them in InDesign.

I am pleased with the outcomes as the drawings are plain yet somewhat interesting despite being of a dull subject matter. However, I still need to work on the formatting of it a bit, in order to decide on appropriate colours, etc. as I haven’t stuck to set colours, currently experimenting with what works and what doesn’t. A problem which I have had is that different printers print the colours differently. However, to overcome this issue I plan on printing out lots of different colour swatches in order to decide which ones to use. I feel as though keeping the tones consistent throughout could create a more professional feeling to my magazine.
