It is very hard to say dude. You need to rescan your inks they are extremely muted.

Are you inking over the grays?

That might be adding to the muddy look.

You aren't bluelining the pencils which is why the greys are showing up all over the place.

OK.... I didn't quite understood what you ment by muted... but I guess is that they look all dirty and unclear... thanks.. let me work on that.

Basically the inked version is fuzzy.

Hard to "read" it. It's getting mixed with the pencils and other lines on the board.

A good idea, in general, though, is to ink the bleed line all the way around. It's the dotted line on the outer side of the art. The one that runs thru Bats's cape on the left side, panel 2....that whole dotted-line box.

That's good advice for all inkers. Helps the rest of us in the production chain--a lot!

Then re-scan and drop out the pencil-marks as best you can......high contrast, in other words. That will keep your inks crisp and the inked box, too. If the scan is clear enough, we can see it better.
