In my opinion you need to refine a bit your inking. Right now all lines have the same weight, while the line thickness should vary armonically according to what you're drawing. This (http://www.rdwarf.com/users/ruggels/inks/inks01a.html) is an example of what I mean.
You seem to ink in Photoshop, so this tutorial (http://celesse.deviantart.com/art/Inking-Tutorial-for-Painter-22103422) could help you. It's for Painter but also useful for Photosop. Just look for "Inking tutorial" in Google or DeviantArt to find tens of tutorials like these.
Do you use a mouse or a tablet?

You could essecially get the same effect using the path tool and stroking the path with a brush tool set to one of the caligraphy brushes. Paths can be tricky to get used to, but, they are one of the most powerful tool in photoshop.

>>> Welcome back.
You use layers right?
You should work at higher resolution like 300 dpi or something, maybe make the colors less saturated and blend the colors better, there are lots of tools for that in photoshop. I use the gaussian blur and smudge tool.

I'm a troll when it comes to photoshop so I won't be able to give any pointers. :p

Looking great.
