Popular background resolution in my opinion: 2560×1600 – 72 dpi
3508×2480 – 300 dpi
2560×1200 – 72dpi

Have to disagree, If it is a tileable picture it should be square not rectangle to stop space wasting

you should just make it a large a humamly possible then is you even want it bigger you have it, i make so texture a 10,000 pixels then change latter!

We all indeed fairly accept that ai, corel draw and indesign are the only best programs for all the print needs. But now lets face the real fact. Most of the end users are uncomfortable with illustrator due to its interface. I think it’s not really easy to work in illustrator for beginners. Most of the buyers who have basic knowledge of photoshop are unable to work in illustrator. Answer is that Photoshop is much more easier to work with and with the vast resources of it on web makes it first choice for users with little or no knowledge in graphics. Also lets just take gradient tool of photoshop and compare it with illustrator’s gradient panel. What do you think would be easier for such buyer?

Though I’m in favor of vector programs more than photoshop, but the fact is that not everyone would be able to use them and most of the buyers wouldn’t want their time to be consumed by learning these programs.

I might be wrong so I’d like to hear opinion of others. :)

I would have to disagree a bit i have come from an online background i did design work only for the web so nothing ever had to be printed so every thing was done in photoshop!

Then a few months i moved and got a new job and i started having to do work for print, i still will use photoshop alot if i know the final size it is need for i will just make it a bit bigger to be on the safe side! but i use photoshop as it is better and you can do more with it.

I would only use illustrator if it had to be scaleable and was made of solid colours, and i woulld not say it is a hard program it to a few day to find most of the options out, it is a very small program compared to photoshop.

I think illustrator and photo shop should have merged years ago into one complete program!

Looking good for your first model, but your going to need to work on poly distribution and make sure detail is evenly spread across a model and not all in one place!

My advice would also be to see what selling on the site and provide models like that not sure you will get alot of sales from swords, and the only one that will sell are going to be low poly ones 1000 – 3000 poly.

but good luck
