Wow, I'm impressed by the dpi you work at. I'm such an agoraphobic cartoonist.
Wa-all, it does depend on what I'm working on. People, scenery, and animals...they require a higher dpi if I'm going to get what I want.
This is definetly my favourite part Is this 100% of the original size?
Oh, thanks. Actually no. The original size was about 4800 x 3500, 500dpi or so pixels. I work quite large, sometimes, and then reduce the picture to be uploaded to the site. And of course, the cropped version was likewise reduced.
Beautiful! I definitely appreciate your posting closeups, the detail is, not surprisingly, astonishing.
