It may look “scratchy” now, but when the paint is over it the ink will give a nice texture to the coat. I guess the choice is either thousands of ink strokes or thousands of tiny brush strokes to get a similar effect, and for me the ink has worked out every time. Doing the ink first also allows me to really get a handle on whether or not my original drawing was accurate. I always find myself making small corrections as I lay the ink in. Then when it comes to the paint I don’t have to think so much about the draftsmanship accuracy and can concentrate on getting the color right.
