I am known here on newgrounds as Alphanonanonymous, and I've been just recently submitting illustrations to the art portal.

In addition, I'd just received a critique of one of my works from newgrounds user "baby3ater", about what baby3ater saw to be a problem of line clarity in my illustrations available for perusal here on Newgrounds entitled "action girl".

In short, Baby3ater commented that s/he believed that (even as the piece was fairly well done), that s/he thought that I needed to vary the density of my linework, in order to keep the work from being too dense and "confusing".

this is how I had responded: I have a tendency of imbuing my work with a good deal of detail (I use rapidograph technical pens, by the way, which produce lines as thin as .25, .18 and .13 millimeters).
At any rate, I've been toiling for some time insofar as ensuring that the computer medium is able to aptly document and depict the details inherent in my illustrations.

Now, the critique you've given is not one that I receive from those who see my art, in person. However, different computer monitors utilize different specifications, insofar as how much detail they are able to convey in the images they show.

I also think that this is going to be a very perplexing problem for any artists of the present and future who wish to create very detail oriented linework-based illustrations, for some time to come: I've been able to take a look at the way my own artwork appears on this site as well as my home site at, and the way that monitors "pick up" the details vary in such a staggering way, that I haven't been able to conjure up a solution.

If possible, I would invite you to take a look for yourself (if you're so disposed) at my site on www.alphaholism.comon two or three different computer monitors and see what I mean. One monitor will seem fine...whereas the other monitor shows the images of my art as quite grainy and diffused.

However, I am scanning my art at 600 ppi, then hittling "auto fix" in photoshop (so as to darken it even further)...but, alas, even as more people are able to see it in the fashion I'd purposed...still, there are sometimes problems depending upon the settings and manufacturer standards of the monitor.

Perhaps, however, You are aware of the problem and could pose a suggestion?
(I've already, mind you, scanned my work at higher resolutions...but the problem persists).

So, how about it, gang...any suggestions from the expanses of Newgrounds?
