does it matter how sketchy the lines are?

You mean on the sketch? Or on the final picture?

If you meant sketch, not really, because you can always fix it later, but of course, the cleaner the lines you have, the less time you need to fix things up!

As for the final picture, it really depends on what you want, sometimes sketchy lines can be quite unique~

I know this is a bit old, but, when you render, I'm actually pretty confused. xD I read over the whole process, but I'm confused on how you fixed it. Coloring over it and all... Would you just hide the original sketch after you trace over it during the rendering layer, or what? Also, I'm a bit confused on how you sharpened the details. It looked blurry, but suddenly not? I'd like to know the techniques. ;v; If that's alright - I fell in love with your style and I want to take it and render it into something I can call my own.

It's just pretty much drawing on top of the "base" you have.

Look at the Luigi head part, imagine the blue lines I added along the grey line is what I have done in a new layer, the outcome is the line on the rightmost. What I did was simply color pick the white and draw along the line to hide the messiness and the blue was just to show what I did.

Ah, I see! Thank you~ <3

However, I'd like to know how the coloring you had before rendering, how did you make it more clear and not so blurry? Would it be the same technique you used for the lineart? 

Sorry if I'm bothering you so much. ;A;

I guess it's more about contrast you're asking about there. You want more contrasts with the things you want the viewers to focus at. So for those, you want them with more variation with values. You can achieve that with multiply/overlay/luminous & shadow. You can also make do with color contrasting like red on green.
