I remain sceptical as to what the OP wants consideriing the films he uses.
Here are examples of a fine line simulation with one developer considering a line in 4x5, 120 and 35mm formats. It is from the work of Kriss.
You will note that in this film/developer combination, as the line gets finer, the contrast goes up.
