Back to basics.
Tried using a drawing tablet for a while. Quality suffered.
Older method takes longer, but gives some sharp lines.

I concur re: line weights. The negatives for me are the lack of solid blacks on Supes--mainly the lower leg and back of the arm, particularly the tricep area. The light on top of his head has all but disappeared, and his mouth has changed.
His hand is almost merging with the shadow it (and the arm) is casting but not in good way (due to the hatching lines not being fine and even. Looks like you used brush when a pen would have been better). Cross hatching on bicep has been lost as has the sharp definition which is clearly there in the pencils.

The arm/hand shadow lines on the leg in the pencils are more continuous whereas in the inks you've broken the flow which is also why the hand is lost when it should be popping, even more so than in the pencils.

Still a fine effort! I tried using a tablet too but just felt too... disconnected. Saving up for a fancy pen display tablet. Still loving the good ol' paper and brush, when I can find the time which, annoyingly, isn't too often right now.

I like the dynamic lines weight!

Thank you. It takes a while to ink this way, but the outcome is sharper.

I'll be keeping an eye out for new posts if you want anything inked.
