Based on suggestions/comments by mizufae:

Here I added weight to many of the lines that make up the drawing (and relined others because they were faint due to being erased over). The drawing already feels more substantial, and then...

Here I added crosshatch-style shading. It's a little coarse in places, but it's also supposed to be somewhat reminiscent of the original illustrations. I like how it turned out.

do you have any idea how much squishy goodness it makes me feel that somebody actually *followed* my suggestions and it looks that awesome? because, it does, you know.

PS: the harder the lead, the harder it is to erase, but the lighter it is. if all you want for the end product is a *scan* then go for a very hard lead that will be very light. then upon inking and scanning you can completely remove any leftover pencils through a curves adjustment. HOWEVER, if you want to look at the end product in person and such, use a softer, darker lead (like a mechanical pencil or even softer) with light loose strokes. it *will* cause some of your ink lines to be lost after being erased on, but you should be passing over your inks at least a second time anyway.
*end art major rant*

I actually picked up some 2H pencils at the art store yesterday. They're actually quite easy to erase on bristol - I guess because the surface is so smooth, the pencil comes right off, as long as I don't dig into it when I draw. Whereas the softer mechanical pencil (a basic disposable Bic) got too smudgy and soaked up by the bristol, and was more difficult to erase.

And passing over my inks a second time is such a pain! But it does make it look a lot better on the physical piece...
