My mom watches an episode of “The Partridge Family” on her iPad at the dinner table. The episode ends and the infamous Screen Gems vanity plate from that time period plays. I contemplate orating the history of the Screen Gems “S from Hell” as I recall it from having read its Tv Tropes page numerous times. I think about telling her and my father about how, at that time, both the animation and the then-cutting edge synth music of that vanity plate were so sudden and jarring that many kids across America would have nightmares about it. I also think about telling her that there’s even a short documentary about the logo, and that nowadays the vanity plate for Screen Gems is much more serene, most likely in response to the fear that surrounded the older one, and that it has been dubbed the “S from Heaven”.
I decide against it.
someone pointed out how her obsession w shotacon and her shota merchandise is uncomfortably based in pedophilia and she responded by throwing a tantrum on twitter w smash hit tweets like
your personal preference is little boys and you are an adult
"how dare u persecute me for romanticizing the sexual abuse of young boys"
the new place i work has 2 dogs!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well it’s not just the dpi that matters! You could have a 200 dpi image that’s only 400 x 400 pixels, and you’re still going to get some pretty shitty artifacting from your strokes. :)
I work at 8.5 x 11”, 300 dpi at the least, but most of my finished pieces are 11 x 17” and up. This is some of my lineart at 100%, par exemple:
high resolution is a must, even if you’re just downsizing it and posting it online- it allows you a sharpness and level of control that you can’t get at basic screen resolution. You can get away with 150-200 dpi, I’m sure, but I wholly suggest upgrading to 300 and up!
It’s also awesome if you ever need to resize your work for promotional purposes- if you’re working in the 300+ dpi range, you have a lot more leeway for what’s going to look good on a giant banner. :D
