Yay, a technical question!

I'm currently drawing on DIN A4 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIN ). I used to draw on DIN A3, which is twice the size of DIN A4. For example, "Mr Sandman" was completely drawn on DIN A3. Smaller sizes don't make much sense when inking with REAL ink. Now that I'm inking with pens I can use smaller sizes.

I don't know if you have any idea how large DIN A4 actually is... if not, I could probably calculate it in a size norm of your choice :3 To express it in some sort of international norm: The height roughly corresponds to the distance from my elbow to my wrist. I have got an internationally normed underarm, by the way.

I can't believe you only draw on A4!

Sorry, I just noticed this little tech discussion, and thought I'd jump in.

The A-size system is standard in Australia, so I have reams and reams of A4, but the detail level you manage to include eludes me on that size.
Almost everything I do for the internet has to be on A4, because that's the largest size my scanner takes, but when I put together print works I tend to go A3 or even slightly larger and shrink on a photocopier.

Well, if I was impressed before I'm dumbstruck now. What thickness of paper, do you know?
I have a few reams of 200gsm card which I use more than anything, but that gets expensive. Normally I use half that, 100gsm. I just hate thin papers... They're rubbish for inks and copics.
