Does anyone have experience with printing art?I printed stuff way back in high school but even then I had like, no idea what I was doing XDDD (I remember my art always looked fuzzy/pixel-y and never being able to figure out why)More Like This
This is just for future reference...but how does 200 dpi look printed compared to 300dpi? Everyone recommends 300 dpi, but that's just...so huge (like 6 inches of 300 dpi is like 3000 pixels omfg). I work pretty small; when canvases are so huge I get uncomfortable :U but maybe I do just need to get over that.............
That's my main question; but if there are any other nuggets of info I'd be happy to hear 8)

Age, Talent and ArtI saw a comment today that made me blow my top. I wanted to pick a bone with them.More Like This
I'd really like not to express all of my feelings right here, right now, but I'd like to say a couple of things about that subject of Age and Talent on Art.
It's not like I am going to change the world with that journal, but it's worth trying a bit. And it might help people with lack of confidence about their art and age.
Firstly, allow me to make something clear. Art has nothing to do with your Age. Believe me, it's true, and I'll prove it to you.
Back when I was around.. 13 years old the first thing I was looking into someone's profile that their gallery was wonderful, was their age.
Maybe everyone did back then. Some people still do. But why do we pay so much attention on age? Because we're concerned about "how much time do we have to improve till we get there".
At least, that's what I was mostly concerned about. I was lazy as well, pro
Steps to Get More WatchersThis is a kind of stupid sounding journal and I was hesitant in writing this, but I've noticed that there's a lot of really talented artists in my watch list who don't have a lot of watchers.More Like This
Now, watchers aren't everything. There are far too many people on here who are watcher obsessed, and that is not a good thing at all.
Despite this, having a few watchers is a good thing. My favourite part about having a moderate group of watchers is that I get to interact with far more people. What I say in my journals and art sparks conversation, which is wonderful thing. It's also nice knowing that people like you or your art enough to want to see each thing submit to this website, and who fave your work.
Before I start with any tips or anything, I'd just like to say that I myself don't have a huge amount of watchers. There are thousands of people who have more than I do, but I went from 110 watchers to 1,100 in just over three months in the summer, when I was at my most active, which is

There is no "right way" to make a species. There are TONS of variables that might affect your success (in sales). Nothing here should be taken literally. It's only my opinion & personal methods!
Not in it for Money
I DO NOT recommend people make an OS for the specific reason that they want to make money.
It's fine to want a little bit of spending money or something in the mindset of a little side-project. But if you go into this market with the expectation of making a living & supporting yourself off of this?
You're very likely to be disappointed, cause yourself unnecessary stress, and possibly make yourself feel like a failure, when you absolutely are not.
