    This is some darn fine work. I am not an artist but love the style. 95% of the time I prefer just pencils, but your inks are amazing. Fantastic!!!!

    Thanks! When I ink my work, I usually do the pencils loose and put in detail with ink.

    Nice work, I like the inks also and am interested in seeing how this style looks colored.

    Nice art!
    You might want to check you're balances, it's looking like the blacks are grayed out a bit, but not so much so that it seems you meant to do it?

    The colors are a little bit random feeling, not getting along as well as they could i think. getting the pallet to sing is freaking hard when you get started coloring, still one of the toughest things for me. A coloring tip i picked up that might help lock that down nicely is as follows: in Photoshop, make sure you're on the top later of your file if it's not flattened, and look in the layers toolbox.

    at the bottom for the filter buttons there, you want the one that looks a bit like a ying yang half and half symbol, and choose "colour balance" from the menu it produces.

    Very very slightly play with the sliders shifting all the tints together, the whole page at one go. you don't have to do a lot, the idea is to tweak it just a bit, and introduce a small degree of complementary palate to the whole image. If you add red you ad a little red to everything in even amounts bringing them into a family of tones. Right now it's a bit discordant, not matching the tie to the shirt if you will. This is a really easy way to fix that.

    The Resulting filter layer is better than doing this through the main menu because it's not permanent, so you can fix tweak or kill the alterations at any time. It can have cutouts to punch out things like any near whites or intentionally clashing colors that got contaminated that you might want to preserve, and the end result is amazing most of the time.
