I don't get how you get it so smooth and crisp. Inking is my worst enemy.

Manga studio EX5... and the stabilizer helps a lot. Though practice makes perfect. I've really gotten into digital inking with photoshop and now manga studio.

As requested ;)

Looks good! Digital inking has that clean, but manufactured look to me. The point of adding line weight is to define the light source, and to add mass as well as depth. Always keep that in mind as you ink a page.
 A good example is Hulk's hands....you started adding some heavier lines to show shadow at the bottom, particularly his left hand, but the lines become flat and consistent in weight as you move up his fingers. You need to add the depth to create a 3D effect. Otherwise it flattens out. Same thing for his hair as Sean mentioned. You defined a light source on Hulk's face, the line on his left side is a bit heavier. So now you need to carry that through the whole page.....so you get the idea of what I'm saying. There is no clear light source defined overall, especially on the ruble at his feet and broken wall. It's hard to always do, but that's what practice will help you do. Always go back and look at the finished inks later on and see it with fresh eyes and you will see the things you miss in every piece you ink...I do it all the time and know and see my weaknesses, but I just keep practicing...that's the only way to improve! So keep this in your head as you look at this ink again and also the next time you ink something:
Depth: Heavier lines pulls into the foreground. The thinner lines are background.
Mass: A heavier line denotes or adds mass to the object.
Light source: Shadows are heavier, whereas where the light hits an object, the line becomes thinner 
Remember, I'm no pro. I am not saying you did a bad job; rather, every time you ink push yourself to do the best. I hope these tips will help you do that!

Looking good!

I think you lost some of the softer cross hatching effects and his hair lacks the depth of the pencils but otherwise a great effort!

Saves the highres... :)

I see what you're saying. I did lose a lot of depth with the hair I can tweak the the hair. I'm going to have to look at the hatching, or look into the hatching to see how I could soften it in the future. I'll let you know when I redo the hair if you like.
