Dragons

<< < (2/4) > >>

DrakonianDanceR:
Oh, I know what you mean.  My first computer had under 1GB of hard-drive space, and I too thought I'd never fill that up.  And now here I am with about 30GB to play with, and I'm worried of filling it up soon.  Though, if it does get bad, I'll just save a lot of stuff onto CDs, and delete it off the hard-drive.

I look forward to seeing the revisions.

Kada-Ru:
I too am putting things on cd's then deleting them off the hd's. (giggles) so much stuff to save and never enough harddrive space!!

Firestorm Six:
The dragon pics are great ! * Dragons are somthing i have never tryed to draw much, though i would like to, (maybe my lack of practice doing reptiles and dragons*)
It's a good idea to back up images to CD's , either if you HD is almost full, or in case of Hard Drive failure. it happens to often,though my desk top has 40 gigs,  I have an external hard drive that is 80 Gigs, I have all my originals saved there, and copies backed up on CD and stored in a safe place. Hard Drives should never be filled past 95 % of their capacity, as temp files and buffers can corrupt files if there's not much free space left, (your computer tempoary writes data to the HD's free space as buffer-overrun when your ram is exausted).... the drive  responds faster and the PC in general will respond faster if less than 60 % of the drive is used anyway. A high quality JPEG is usually small enough to squeeze alot of images on a CD anyway. TIF or PSD format is very big , and takes up alot of space, though better quality. A JPEG of about 3000 x 2500 pixels saved at 100 % best quality setting is almost as good as a TIF, and only a fraction of the size in Megabytes. I have all my art stored as maximum quality JPEG's .



Kada-Ru:
I've been saving all of them as 600dpi tif's. These I will use later for prints. Then I also save one at 75dpi which I take into PSP 5 and resize to 500 pixels for webpages and then my thumbnails are 100 pixels. (width and jpg.s)

Thank you FireStorm about the dragons. I haven't had much practice either with reptiles etc., if you look at my webpage. Just got a couple suggestions from DrakonianDanceR and an image in my head and went with it.

Kada-Ru:
I did a little touch up to my two dragon pics. I hope you enjoy!
