A question...

A question for those who bought my high def files. Do you think I should put in the extra effort to make my lines anti-aliased (smooth rather than pixely)? Would that make it more appealing to buy and view? Right now I do hard lines cause it makes coloring pretty easy, but I am willing to try it with smooth lines if my fans prefer it that way. I pretty much only imagine people using the high def for making their own prints, but maybe they just like seeing cubby cock really big on the screen. =^-^=

No need for anti-aliasing on the high resolution files, IMO. Anti-aliasing is for simulating a higher resolution on a low-res file, but if you actually have a high-res file, it's unnecessary :)

Well if they are big enough the hard lines would make things look sharper when zoomed out (or printed). Would it be much trouble to supply both versions so people don't have to pick?

Personally I don't mind the hard lines because you only notice them when you're zoomed way in. =3 I just like how big the files are, getting to see all the nice little details and stuff. Plus you can use them to make backgrounds and whatnot. =3

Either way is good enough for me ^_^ I never really noticed the pixely lines before.

As you said, I just like seeing the cubby cock really big on my screen! Hehe

I think that anti-aliasing is a rather silly thing to do for this purpose. As a couple other people have said, it's to make a low-res image appear to be higher resolution. Nobody views images really heavilly zoomed in where it would be noticeable, and it would make your lines less sharp when zoomed out. I've noticed on some images, they can even appear uneven/blurry when you zoom out if you smooth out your lines.

Trueness. At 600dpi it probably wont make any visual difference when shrunk down. 2 or 300 dpi might get a little fuzzy.

I'd say stick with the hard lines. It's very much a part of your style at this point, and you really make it work. :)

I like it the way you have it and I do like to see cubby cock big on my screen

I tend to just use the anisotropic filter, then sharpen slightly then despeckle to smooth out pixelated lines on high rez pics.

Hey Arcc,

If you wanna do anti-aliased lines, but still do coloring easy let me know. I know a quick trick that should let you do what you want easily =)

To be honest Arcc, I've gotten used to your existing style as your skills have grown (young Jedi xD).  Why not try some new pieces anti-aliased (or even two versions if possible) and see where the feedback takes you.  We'll buy your stuff regardless. ^.^

Aww, your too kind. =^-^=  May give it a shot. :3
