I don't have a direction with this. Just working on twice the usual size. This is two separate sheets taped together. If this feels better than the modest A4, I will then have the painful challenge of finding a local paper store.

I noticed a couple of days ago, that I've had tired irritated eyes, because the shitty LED bulb in my desk lamp has a flicker.
You can barely see the dark and light streaking on the photo above—that's because I usually spend a couple of minutes with the Curves tool to get the values I like.

What I have also found is that, in this ENTIRE country, you cannot find anything other than 6500K, >700lm, blue-blinding LED lamps.

(Is this the kind of stuff, is for? Or am I spamming?) 0:-)

Not so much of a progress, but an experimentation of black and white editing with Gimp.
Even though there's not much colour data in my images, I noticed my camera photos turned to grayscale look shit.
The scans have never been a concern for me. I scan drawings in gray at high resolution, and need barely any tweaking.

Maybe this is the FIN for this one, maybe I'll tweak some more, just in case I'm trying to avoid new work. 😛
This took long, and in all likelihood, I'm going to separate the two sheets, and shelf them once they are scanned.

Working through this did help me get comfortable with using Sumi sticks, which have their own unique challenges.

Sumi (stick ink), G-pen, somewhat smooth A3 (A4 x 2; 100g/m²) paper.

Finally cobbled this together from the scans. I haven't stopped to really look, what it's like as a digital image. While it wasn't bad to work at twice the size; I've learned I need a much larger board for this.

@arefgee That's pretty impressive, must of been a nightmare to do with all the detail you had to put into it

@Btph Thanks. No not really. This was mostly drawn very loose handed. Not slow and careful.
