Canvas sizes - inches and dpi and pixels
This is a sort of guide on canvas sizes, inches, dpi and pixel x pixels.
when it came to canvas sizes, I always kind of assumed that inches belonged with dpi and pixels were just pixels and that everyone knew that; but i read a whole bunch of comments on a tumblr blog where someone asked about canvas sizes, and SO MANY people were replying with things such as, "4000x4000 px at 300 dpi" or "2000x2000 px at 200dpi".
and I guess not everyone quite understands what dpi's really used for xD.
DPI = Dots per Inch. It means how many dots will be printed per inch.
DPI is actually used for printing purposes. It shows the printer how much pixels to print per inch, literally. A common printer (at home or even at a lot of printing stores) at best prints at 150dpi most of the time actually; there are some super duper great printers that can print REALLY fine that can go up to ...apparently a lot more xD; #dpi, so that's why everyone usually suggests saving your project at 300dpi; most printers are f

Kaydreamer's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hello. My name is Kaylene and I reside in Western Australia. I've been drawing as a hobby since early high school. I have a well-developed little fantasy world I call Dragonfeathers which often features on this page, and many characters whom I've created over the years.

I am a teacher, teaching music at a wonderful high school. I love tea, books, comics, sci-fi, and video games.

My art program of choice is Clip Studio Paint. (Also known as Mangastudio 5.) I use Photoshop for a few texture brushes and touch-ups.

This is my 5th account here on DeviantART. I used to change username by creating new accounts all the time, before they bought in the ability to do it with a subscription. I've been kicking around this site since about 2002.

I spend most of my time over on Tumblr these days, and post a lot more sketches over there.

I love to get to know people, so don't be afraid to say hi to me. :heart:
It's the summer holidays! The end of one school year and the beginning of what will be a new, very different one. It's also the end of a rollercoaster 2016. I began this year at the lowest point I'd ever been, and I'm ending it at one of the highest. Probably the highest. I think an update is long overdue.

A lot has changed; this New Year marks the end of one chapter of my life and the opening of a new one. I’ve left Australind and moved to a pretty little apartment back in the city. It’s in Fremantle; an absolutely wonderful, creative region of Perth. It's known for its artists, musicians and friendly hippies. I’m sharing this apartment with a man I love dearly, who is currently tucked away in the office, writing. (He’s stolen my little dog, too.)

I’ve a job at a brand new high school, building my own specialist music program, which is an ambition I’ve held since university. That is not something a person who has only been teaching for two years is usually entrusted with. It's a daunting task but I know I can succeed and I can't wait to get started.

I'm somewhat overwhelmed by how completely this year has turned around. The first eight months were a struggle, but the last few have delivered me everything I had dreamed of or wished for. I've so much gratitude for everything in my life at the moment.

The night is darkest before the dawn. But if you keep on toward the sunrise, the dawn will deliver a more beautiful world than you'd ever imagined.
