EDIT 10/02/15: If you're doing inktober I strongly recommend you to take a look at this tutorial! I've been getting a ton of questions that can be answered here c: 

EDIT 10/05/2015: Fehnryr suggested an amazing site for editing your traditional art pics if you want an alternative from photoshop & softwares. Use www.ribbet.com/ to raise contrasts, make colors pop and make your pics as great as the real life drawings! Thank you Fehryr for the suggestion!!

EDIT 10/04/2016: It's that time of the year again! how are your inktobers going?

I use krita, its similar to photoshop and it works pretty well. the only difference is that I have to use stabilizer on krita for lineart. I would use photoshop more, but I graduated. try krita and see if you like it!

The artist of the manga Claymore, Yagi Norihiro, also suffered from the problem of stale inking, his solution was to make a copy of the artwork in it's sketched phase, and then compare it with the inked version to see what could be improved to bring the life back into it. He speaks of this in his interview, which can be found in some of the manga's latest chapters. www.mangahere.co/manga/claymor…

The old harry potter games were the best. They had that free roam action adventure flare with the depth and charm to back it up.

See, you explained the weight of the line as well as gave tips for how to ink; this is what tutorials usually don't do - or they'll give one or the other. The exercices yo ugave at the beginning will be helpful I swear!
