Does the size of my sketchdumps (the usual size), bother you? I'd harzard a guess that they usually they are 900x20,000px (though I also make my files at 300dpi). But I sketch so much, I have lots to post.

YES! They are way too big! Post smaller ones, possibly more often.

Stop making dumps and actually make finished artwork instead.

I like sketch dumps no matter what the size is. :)  Seeing sketches and process work is one of my favorite things from any artist. :heart:

In my wee opinion, the bigger the better! It lets people see the level of detail in your sketches even better! :) plus if people are taking inspiration from your art, it's better for them to actually SEE the stuff they're inspired by lol

I more meant the sheer number of drawings. Many people do not like to take time to look through everything... I mean, people even have the TL;DR phrase for that very reason. I am concerned that by posting long sketchdumps with large numbers of sketches that it might put off people.

While I refuse to draw or sketch less, if posting them in smaller batches encourages participation, I might start doing so.

Personally I enjoy looking through pictures ALL the time, so the number of sketches in your dumps doesn't bother me at all :) The way I see it, that's your own personal style of presenting your work, and if it bothers YOU, only then should you change it :) but I do understand that you feel it may be a bit much for people to take in sometimes

Any size! XD

I actually think the bigger is better, more to look at sort of thing :)

That was the idea, post less often and have more to post when I do post. But lately, I'm averaging a sketchdump a week. XD

well a week, thats not so bad, I would wait that long for big dumps =p though I am also happy with any sketches you post, I enjoy looking at them so size isnt too much of a factor, its just 'richer' and more fun to get to look at bigger dumps :)

Good, I have done the smaller ones more often since I was afrad of a TL;DR sort of problem with my sketchdumps being to long. So posting shorter ones more often seemed a good solution.
