all traditional inks
It may be personal taste but it looks waaaay too sketchy. The intensely wild lines and strokes do a disservice to the moment which is calm and tender. And its distracting, like panel 3&5. I find myself staring at the scribble rather than absorbing the moment.

I agree. Aside from distracting from the moment / story as Dano sez, what you've done here reads more or less as wild line work and doesn't do what line work is supposed to do: create / show form. The hair on both characters throughout is a good example of the line not displaying the form, and it's especially true in the last panel.
Now, to add something more positive, if you wanna check out an inker whom I think achieves what you're looking for ( I think - I'm not sure you'll agree ), I'd suggest studying the work of Bill Reinhold. An excellent all-around artist, Bill's work in my view borders on the interpretive and is very loose, but still shows a solid academic hand at work. I believe you'll learn a lot from looking at it.

eh, it fits romita's style, which is way too sketchy. Why you would use anything except a sharpie on a romita is beyond me.
I think Romita JR calls for a more tight inker, someone who tightens his sketchy pencils.
On a more tight penciler, your style would work very well though. (as your "sketches" have shown)
