This is really helpful! Thank you so much for doing this!
I have a question though. I'm not sure if you know, but there's no harm to ask, right?
Do you perhaps know how scanning would go if you color traditionally as well?
Like with watercolors or color pencils. Can these rules be applied as well or does this go differently?

The problem with coloring traditionally would be that when you pull out your cyan it would affect all of your other colors that are similar to blue/cyan. There are three possible solutions:

1. You can do just the inks and lines, then scan, edit, print out on a thicker paper and then color. That way it would be the appropriate size and you'd not have issues wondering if anything would be outside a margin line.

2. You can make you OWN margins by measuring them out and instead of drawing lines across the paper, simply make a tick mark on both sides (bottom, top, right and left, as a sort of "estimate".

3. You can get a lightbox and put a printed out template underneath your ACTUAL paper. This way the margins would shine through (due to the light) and you can still see the margins without them on the paper you are drawing on. Make outlines for the outside of the bleed so you know where your edges are; and since the bleed always gets cut anyway, you'd not have to worry about the lines showing up in the final.
