FLIPPING, MULTIPLE SCREENS and FILE SIZE
Illustrator and committee member Patrick Miller suggests before you get ready to send, make sure you do the following:
Flip Your Image
- If you haven’t already, flip your image horizontally so that you can see the mirror image of it – you’ll be amazed at how it highlights any errors of proportion, perspective and anatomy. It’s never too late to check and amend.
Check on Different Screens
- Check your image on lots of devices, not just your computer screen. Everyone’s screens are different so have a look on a phone, an iPad, on a friend’s computer, and when printed out. The judges won’t know exactly what values you intend your image to have so it’s good to feel sure that they’ll see what you want them to see!
File Size and Resolution
- Make sure your online submission image is 72dpi and under 1Mb in filesize, and make sure you saved the 600dpi version separately – we’ll need that for the anthology!
