I like your inking. What size Molly you using? I wish it will open bigger to look at the detail. And what pen?
since ther is no real way to track a FAV… wanted to let you know that I did so
Thanx Nikky, You seem tio be one of the few who appreciates this.
This view about the original size depending on your screen settings (it is done in a small plain pocket NB 9×14 cm, 192 sheets) http://www.moleskine.com/catalogue/classic/hard_black_cover/plain_notebook__pocket.php
Not even meant for drawing, but I’m using it anyway – they can sue me if they want – I don’t give a s…!
This is the reason I deliberately avoided presenting larger than life copies… There is simply no more details than you see (the lines tend to appear thicker on the screen than in the original though – generally less sharp)
Thanx Andy. And Nikky, I forgot – the pen is Stadler “Pigment liner” 0.2 and 0.7 (looks like single-use rapidograph by the same brand)
Oh, I guessed right. I love plain, I had one for train sketches during winter and got one bigger for pen and pencil. How you achieving life size? I am reducing by pixels, not by inches.
I’m scaling it down in Corel PhotoPAINT (like Photoshop) and see when it’s about the same size as original (on my screen). That is in practice scaling it down to about 25% of the original photo (by my Olympus 7.1 MP) for this size NB. For larger ones (since photo is always the same) I scale-down less (say to 33% for “large” – the one you wrongly call “A5″ – or 40-50% for A4)… I do not bother much, but this is roughly what I usually do.
Thank you for answer. I have Corel Painter. May be I should try it there? I scan it in scanner. Why wrongly? The smallest A6, Large – A5, this what I was given by my ebay supplier, when asked for large. I remember you said about new german standards, do you have more info on it?
A4 = 210 × 297 mm = A4 Moleskine
A5 = 148 × 210 mm > “large” = 130×210 (thinner by 18 mm)
A6 = 105 × 148 mm > “pocket” = 90×140 (both thinner and shorter than A6)
Each A(n) size is A(n-1)cut in half leaving shorter side of the old one (n-1) as longer of the new one (n), in other words: A5 is 148×210 if you cut in in two equal sizes you get 2 of 105×148 each. This is not the case with Moleskine (except newer A4 and A5)
Sorry, I meant A4 and A3 (instead of A5) at the end of the message…
