    It's looking great Ernie, I think you are making good progress. I can really see the detail in the document information screenshot you posted.

    I think, probably like Egg, I have quite a light touch using a Wacom tablet. Despite a fair amount of use, I rarely have to replace nibs. I can imagine though with this woodcut simulation technique, it must pleasing to have a surface texture to draw against.

    ----

    I don’t think I’ve knowingly tried true Bavarian beer (yet). I’ve just been reading about the different types. They sound very refreshing, but quite different to the beers I usually drink, which are generally warm, dark, full bodied and complex with a sweet and fruity character!!!

    @ Jonopen: you should try some varieties of Bavarian beer.

    At my last job in Ireland 2018, I was in Ballycroy County Mayo for a week. In the evening, I went to the pub with friends and enjoyed Guinness.
    On the way home I had been in the airport for about an hour.
    In a beer pub I had the opportunity to taste some British beers and all the beers I tasted where good to verry good.

    The German prejudice British beers would taste like cat’s piss I can’t understand.


    And here is the next progress, enjoy!

    BTW I bought a new Drawing Tablet, not a Wacom but a cheap Chinese Huion.
    What may I say: for this price it's miles better than my old Wacom.
    It has 8191 pressure points and 5080 LPI pen resolution.
    The Wacom has 2000 pressure points and only 2400 LPI pen resolution. At the time I bought it, it's cost 1080,- €.

    For the Huion I pay only 56,- €.
    O.K. its smaler then the Wacom but with the double resolution it's more accurate and I have more space on my desktop.

    I drew 3 days and the nib is like new. No abrasion.

    Amazing work Ernie !

    I also love Durer's work. And German Beer. And British beer. Just not the Italian one, no offense.

    In May of this year I started working for a new publishing house. Since then, I haven’t had time to work on the drawing.
    Since a week I have started drawing again, only half an hour in the evening to relax. And here’s the next step:

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    From the last drawing I made a nyloprint cliché and printed the vector reproduction on a letterpress machine.

    Attachment 128927

    I wanted to see if I hit the woodcutters in any way. As you can see from the macro shot, this has been achieved.

    Attachment 128925

    Since I have some time at the moment, I decided to do a new woodcut by Dürer. The master class, so to speak.
    Every spare minute I’m going to draw on this work and share it with you. Whenever something new comes in, I’ll put it here and you’ll see the progress.
    So here is the first part of my new project. Maybe one or the other already realizes what it is. Have fun!

    Great work ernie, you are without a doubt one of the many on TG whose work I am in awe of.

    Really enjoying watching this come to life. It looks like the end is approaching, although I suspect there’s a lot detail in the next section.
