@POSEIdOON, grafik, Doomov: Thank you. It’s been a while since I’ve worked on larger paper and especially not the fancy heavyweight stuff. I like how much easier it is to control the details. Still too expensive to use all the time, but at least ledger size printer paper is pretty cheap.
@WyattHarris Thanks! I’m really proud of how those ones came out.
@STFVIT Thank you!
Day 18. - Working on my weak areas is feeling exhausting and frustrating, but that’s how it felt when I was first starting into doing the crosshatched portraits too and pushing through on those made them a lot better. I like some of the thumbnails versions a lot better than the final thing on this one. It probably means I’m on the right track. I used a nib holder with an offset this time, which I liked using a lot. I really love the line variation you can get with quills, but I’m having a tough time controlling it right now.
I want to try this one again on larger paper. 5x8 felt way too small for this nib. I also still want to find an affordable scanner that can handle 11x17 in one pass, especially a portable one.
