You need to draw the lines on a separate layer. If you use Photoshop, you can then lock the layer and color only the lines. Or you can also make an empty layer above the line layer and hold down alt and press between the layers and then color the empty layer.

I think there is a way in Painter as well, by I myself have not yet discovered it. I'm sure there are members here who knows though

I usually put the drawing on a higher layer by itself, then change it to Multiply, and then adjust the opacity of the layer.
