Hey guys,
so basicly I'm appling to work with aillustration company and they're basicly testing me with a sketch I need to ink digitaly, my problem is they've sent me a very detailed sketch and the image is only 200x300 pixels (300 dpi) which means I can'treally zoom in,do u think I should request a larger image of the sketch?

    I believe that this may be your first test, young Padawan.

    No. Do not request a larger image. Chances are this is the kind of work that clients will send them and expect them to be able to reproduce. They sent you that image size for very specific reasons. Show them what you can do. You have to be able to work at a pixelated level and use your best judgment sometimes.

    just blow it up to a bigger size and get to work. oooooor ask them what its use will be, they may need you to be very expressive with very few lines.

    thats what I've done craig still very difficult to work it out but im giving it a go, I cant imagine them wanting limited lines since the sketch has a lot of harsh shading
