Coloring digitally can be a completely different world for those who are used to a single medium. Instead of mixing paints together you pick from a large palette of colors. Obviously there are in-application controls to pick colors in various advanced ways, but nothing can replicate blending paints by hand.No, but skills at one doesn't necessarily translate to the other; the results come out different.
In addition to the issue of moving to picking predetermined colors rather than mixing them, the results on a computer screen never match up with what you can get on paper due to the transition between RGB (Computer displays) and CMYK (printers), as well as the slight variants between display panels. This was especially a problem back in the CRT days, but cheap LCD screens to this day still have some color or gamma issues. They even created a system of matching printed colors on paper to what a monitor displayed called "Pantone", which only complicated the color situation even further.
The problems with colors on screen translating to paper was apparent during the "Batman Damned" comic book fiasco, where a brightness error when printing revealed Batman's penis to the world.
