So in case anyone is interested, here's how I've been getting the look I've used on my last few sketches.

First, credit where credit is due.  I snagged this from Gold-Seven's tutorial: www.deviantart.com/deviation/2…
She makes it look way better than I possibly can anyway. :D  She's a spectacular artist.  You could do worse than poke around her gallery for a while.

But I had to adapt it.  For one thing, I had no parchment pattern of my own, so I had to find one.  Lunairetic turned me on to Resurgere, and I found one of their stock packages that had some nice paper patterns:  www.deviantart.com/deviation/2…
But look through the rest of their gallery while you're there.  They have some great stuff.  Also, here I need to apologize, because in their terms they ask that credit be given to them if their stock is used, and I keep forgetting.  I'll go edit those as soon as I get done writing this.

So anyway.  I used one of their paper stock samples, dropping that on a layer above the lineart.  Below the paper but above the lineart, I put in a layer of solid sepia, using the 'color' layer filter.  

Then, above the paper, I created a layer and used the Clouds filter on it.  The two colors I selected for this were #944301 (a rich medium brown) and #ffeac2, a creamy beige.  There's no particular reason you have to use those specific two colors.  I just poked around till I found two that worked, but there's quite a range that'll probably do just as well.

Now, I didn't merge the two.  I applied the dodge tool that Gold-Seven talks about straight to the paper layer, and left the Cloud layer intact.  Actually, I haven't tried it yet, so I don't know if it'd look better or worse.  I'll have to give that a go, next time.  And all the color layers she mentions in her tutorial I slipped in between the paper and the cloud layers.  Other than that, all proceeds according to her tutorial.
