Had a curious interchange here on DA recently where someone reckoned the scans I post of my miniatures were too small to see the pencil marks properly. I think really they just weren't familiar with the use of paper stumps, or were completely unfamiliar with what's required when drawing an ACEO, but it got me thinking.

I post my pics at 320pixels high because desktop computer screens were for a long time built at a resolution of 96dpi, so to see my miniature drawings at life-size, you need in theory 3.5x96pixels, which means 336. In reality on my desktop screen, a height of 320 pixels gives a lifesize image, hence the discrepancy... but my computer's getting very old now, and what with all the smartphones & tablets being used, I guess screen resolutions have probably changed a fair bit.

Anyway, the point to all this rambling is, I'd like to ask anyone reading this to help me figure out a better size for the pics I submit. If you've got a little ruler or a tape measure handy, can you tell me how tall this image of Arwen is on your screen? Inches or centimetres or millimetres, whatever you've got - if you can put it in a comment to this Journal entry along with what you're viewing it on (desktop/laptop/tablet/phone, don't worry about the brand) I'd be really grateful.

Thanks very much to everyone who can help :)

I'm a commercial artist with some taoist leanings who's spent a couple of decades pootling around in various mundane areas of graphic design & illustration. Definitely happier drawing than designing.
