if you want to be safe, the dimensions can be 6x8.5 inches at a minimum of 300dpi resolution. 600dpi preferable.

Question: by violence, what are we not allowed to depict? Like, are kicks to the face alright, so long as we don't show anything actually breaking?

Er, kung iko-compare, Bleach-style violence lang, or less?
Reply
:iconmangaholix:
mangaholix Featured By Owner May 2, 2008  Professional General Artist
Breaking bones is allowed. Kicks or other physical actions involving body parts are fine. Violence in terms of gore is not allowed like decapitation, guts, too much blood, suggestive mutilation etc. etc.
