I pencil digitally and like to have a traditional piece to sell so I print it out in non-photo blue and ink it. And the pencils aren't actually that tight. If you saw the big version you'd see exactly how messy they are.
You call that messy? Damn dude, how big a piece of paper do you use? Tell you what, one day I'll send you one of my pencils before inking. If you believe your pencils aren't tight, then you KNOW mine are chicken scratch. Be well.
