i would basically just want to understand exactly what i'm doing when doing this, to be in charge of the difference between being generous and being a fool. oh and this is in europe, it probably plays a part as well?
Well, being a "nobody" & given that "this work will be very limited (geographically)".
Logically speaking - you have little to lose & little to gain !
Perhaps a small something for your portfolio at best if you had wished to pursue this in a wider context as a larger money making project ?
I mean a small something is bigger than a massive nothing !
Publicity & being published in any form IS worth it ,what's to lose ?
But NO perhaps don't dream yet & put your energies into a new pen & wash reinterpretation - that will just lead to resentment & regret.
Have you scanned the pencil in greyscale ?, how does that work ?
You could add had pen lines either digitally or literally by drawing on a greyscale print, not much bother really.
Oh that was business , I forgot ! "you have good reason to be kind" - then just do it but just in the manner suggested above .
Well that's the way I think anyway !
