I'm not clear on what you want to do here: do you want to convert the art to vector format so that you can use the bezier curves to fine tune the outlines?

Ok, this is all Illustrator, I don't do freehand. ;-)

Save your photoshop scan as a grey scale tiff. If necessary, you should adjust your levels/contrast or posterize depending upon how many different color areas you want.

Create a new doc in Illustrator.
Go to File > Place and place your image.
Go to Object > Live trace > Make And Expand and see what happens with the defaults. For a lot of black and white images, this will be sufficient to create your base vector art.

If not, UNDO (I'll assume you know how to do that...) and go to Object > Live Trace > Tracing Options and you will see all of the different settings you can play with to adjust the output. You will most likely need to tweak these, so don't be afraid to play around a bit. Then repeat, the above.

After you have a good base vector art image of your scan, you may want to clean up some of the points if there was a lot of detail in your scan. You can go to Object > Path > Simplify and play with that a bit too.

For Bezier curves, you need only google Bezier Curves Tutorial. There are a ton of tutorials out there. Here are some:
