When I try painting, (People from far away with a background) And zoom in, it gets all pixally and I can't do details. Does anyone know the right settings to use? I'm using Photoshop CS6
For something like this: (remove the spaces) Not the exact pic but that's what I mean by far away and with detailed face.

I usually use 11x8 or 12x9 for landscape style
More important for that would be resolution than physical size, unless you plan on making prints of it and want to print it at a specific size.
For raster sign designs I usually work with 600dpi, sometimes higher if they want a lot of detail. If its really big (like a 4ft x 8ft) I will go as low as 300dpi, but no lower. 300dpi is the minimum for whats considered "ready to print".
After you are done with it you can always save a down sampled copy for posting online or using as a background.Which is the best graphic tablet for digital painting?
