Artist of the Moment


Visit my shop View my bio

My name is Alicia and I have been doing art since 2011. I have been a member of Gasr since shortly after it started and I really enjoy the time I have spent here and all the wonderful people I have met. I started making art because its something I always enjoyed but never felt I was good at it. At least not with pencil and paper. I have found digital art to be comforting and I enjoy making art to share with people and I hope everyone enjoys what I make just as much as I do. I am a 35 year old stay at home mom with 2 kids. Art gives me relief from a 5 year old and an almost 14 year old. Thank you for reading and I hope that me being the artist of the moment will bring me some new buyers and friends!

Hello, I'm fairly new to DPs as i've only just opened my shop. I was wondering what the best canvas size to work on is? as in, I've never really given it much thought before until now. What's the correct canvas size to work on for DPs? I personally work best on a large canvas, usually arouns 1600x1600 but converting that to 160x220 is obviously overly compressed. I'm sorry if this is a noob question, I would just like to know so I can make better DPs for my shop. TY!

Hey there danniii hee

Okay so, for DPs its fairly simple. The original DP size is 160x220. If you work on a bigger canvas try going

160 x 7 = 1120
220 x 7 = 1540

And then you can change the resolution size to 160x220 without overly compressing the quality. You may have to sharpen it a little or add some things to make it appear better. But if you want to work on a bigger canvas just go 160x220 x 2, 160x220 x3, etc. etc. I personally work on a 320x440 canvas and it's easier to work with DPs that way.
