RE: My Monster Coloring Book is Live on Amazon :-)
Congratulations! I was hoping we could take a peak at the first few pages (I think you can do that with certain books on amazon?)
RE: Hello! Do I belong here?
@Amanda-Bancroft yes! I think I understand you. This feels like a great place, but I'm concerned it's not "for me" since I'm not doing children's books. But I'm sure there are great principles here that can be applied in many art-related areas, so I'm gonna stick around and see
RE: How to digitising watercolour/ink wash artwork
I don't have a scanner at home, so I've tried using scanners at FedEx Office and Staples at 300 dpi. I've never liked how my images come out after being scanned. I much prefer the photo look, since (like it's been mentioned) brings out the texture nicely.
This is a great tutorial on how to to take good art photographs:
Afterwards I fix any gradation digitally in Krita (I don't have Photoshop)
Here's a tutorial for that in Photoshop:

Hello! Do I belong here?
This is a very lovely group of people. I've actually been here before, but it's been a while and under a different account name.
I'm wondering, do I fit in this group? I'm not currently interested in becoming a children's book illustrator. I'm more interested in maintaining a shop and a Patreon, possibly in creating a self published comic book in the future. So I am interested in visual story telling, but not the children's book kind. I've also been binge listening to 3 Point Perspective so I've been encouraged to come back here. But I'm worried my style doesn't fit in and I don't want to waste anyone's time.
Would you mind giving me your thoughts?
Here's a Studio Ghibli study I did. Thanks for your time!
