....you didn't turn anti-aliasing off when you made your selections for your flats, did you? You know that puppies die when you leave anti-aliasing on, right?

(its the aliasing that's causing the weird pixely halo between your colors and the lineart)

Also, when you scan your lines, as long as they're just ink (no pencil) scan it as Black and white lineart (or bitmap or whatever settings for black and white your scanner has), because that'll reduce it to being JUST black and white lines, so it'll make selecting stuff easier since scanning lines in color adds weird colored pixels that make selection tools confused. But, if you really wanna scan in color, you can just do "select--modify--expand by 2 pixels" and that'll expand the selection over your lineart so you'll still be able to fill pixel-free. Just some tips to help you out in your future coloring endeavors! ^^
