Victims of the plague - 16th century (sketch or ink?)


Okay, so I'm currently working on a huge project about past history in Scandinavia. The main goal is to create a documentary with artwork and story combined into a documentary that can be shown on YouTube and other videorelated sites.

But I'm not sure about what style of art I want to go for. I'm really into a sketchy look but at the same time I also feel I should ink the artwork. But when I ink the artwork I feel it lose some of the "flow" that's in the strokes of the sketch (It's like it becomes more stiff and not so alive if you know what I mean..).

So what do you people think?
Should I ink it or is it good to go as it is?

Thanks for your feedback.

I really like the sketchy look; I feel like a sketch look would resemble art of the period. However, if you had a sample of the picture with the inked style, I could make a better comparison between the two. But right now, I'd highly recommend sticking with the sketch look.

Thanks for your feedback, Dreadnought404.

I've uploaded both the sketch and the inked version for comparison and if you want to take a look you can find it here: http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/creativefosse/sketch-vs-ink

Thanks again for your feedback!
