Digital Art Tip: Resolution Dependence

I get the question often as to what size canvas I draw on. I’ve answered in responses to explain the basics numerous times, but I’m going to write a bit more detailed response so all can understand and reference.

(I’ll use my Dirty Pair piece as the guinea pig for this…

Please, if you are making work for print, make it natively at 300dpi if you can, even resizing from 200 to 300 dpi will result in a quality shift. 

You can do that if you’re into having 5000x5000 pixel line art and like to do it just for personal achievement, but I have a lot of experience working with print and I can say for an absolute fact that it does not matter unless you’re planning on printing on a billboard. The only person who will know how clean your lines are is you; no one else. If you’re drawing a poster sized image at 300 DPI and posting online at 300 DPI, then yeah, it makes sense. Or again, drawing line art planned to be on a billboard, then sure. But the regular average viewer will not see your lines at that resolution so why work harder?

It’s not the same working 300 DPI and zoomed in at 100% because your lines will jag up even more because your hand is drawing 3x the pixel count at smaller distance. That’s why jaggies happen, because you’re zoomed out too much. It’s not the same as drawing on paper with a pen.

There isn’t a quality shift at all. If I drew this image in 300 DPI and then colored it straight from that, it would look exactly the same as the method I used on it and what you see above (again, I upsized only the line art and then colored at a higher resolution). I’ve done tons of testing on this for my personal work and submitted tons of professional stuff for print and there’s really no difference visually at the final output.

Great tips on working digital.

I’ve had people insist that I used 3d an photos, despite my assertion that I haven’t. You can see the thread here http://www.reddit.com/r/comicbooks/comments/2ag3ku/this_is_a_painting_iron_man_by_ryan_lang/ But this isn’t for them. This is for people that like to see the process of an illustration. I tried to break it down, but if there are any questions, please ask. I have no problem with artists using photos or 3d in their digital work, so when I say I didn’t use photos or 3d for this image, it was that I wanted to see what I could accomplish on my own (with a couple of filters at the end). And if after this process post people still refuse to believe that I didn’t use photos or 3d….. I will take that as a compliment.

Wow.
