I have a basic question regarding image size.
When working on a painting in PS, up until now because I`ve had a pretty weak prosessor I`ve been working in 300dpi, the minimum for print.In a 8 x 10 inch document thats 2400 3000 px. I`ve found it hard to zoom real close for the details.When I see people do really tight paintings I assume they`re working in a higher resolution (dpi)-more pixels. But when I change the amount of dpi when I open a new document there isn`t nessesarily a change in the amount of pixels.
Let`s say you want to make a smooth pic in 8 x 10 would you work in let`s say 10000x 6000px or something hardcore like that?-but still in 300 dpi?+ I`ve seen Ryan Church working in a low res when he`s sketching his painting and then blowing them up when it`s time for the finish-isn`t that kind of a "no-no"when you work for print?
