Dhabih, when your planning on printing your artwork what is your general guidlines? If you know that your going to do a magazine cover do you use a canvas size of 8.5 x 11? What is the max dpi that you will use? If you wanted to go for something bigger like poster size 22x26 would you work with something resonable in size and just scale up the work to the print size that was desired (I know this will degrade some of the quality)? Ideally one would just work in the size you wanted to print and a good dpi. But your working towards a large print size the file becomes to much of a strain on the computers resources. I was just wondering what sort guidelines you use..........

Yeah i set my canvas size at 8x11 but at a low dpi so that the whole image (or most of it) fits on one screen at full size. Once i finish the drawing I then scale it up to 300 dpi and go through it again and make sure the pixelee parts are taken out and redetail key areas like the face. I did a poster image once and that was unbelieably big, i hated it. drawing 22x30 or whatever at 300 dpi on the computer aint fun.

I've made an A3-poster, but it's still at the phase where it needs to get printed..

And I gotta say, working BIG at LARGE resolutions: you gotta have a Silicon Graphics machine or something to get the computer to go smooth.

Just kinda a random thing, but I've been told that at big poster-type sizes the resolution can drop considerably and lookd decent, like to 150dpi or so...
