This is because the pixels on the larger monitor are less dense than on the smaller monitor. This has the effect of making your artwork appear blocky in addition to revealing potential design flaws, etc. Table 2-2 illustrates these DPI differences on various monitor sizes. 6 22 360x200 37 34 29 25 640x480 66 60 51 44 800x600 82 75 64 56 NOTE: You can roughly estimate the DPI supported by a given monitor by using the formula X/S, where X is the horizontal screen resolution and S represents the width of the displayable picture of the monitor in inches.

This being said, it’s important to understand how screen resolution can influence the time it takes you to create your game artwork. These influences include screen real estate, subject matter, and comfort level. Screen Real Estate The higher the screen resolution, the more on-screen “real estate” there is for you to contend with. For example, if you were designing in a relatively low screen resolution like 320x200, you would be working with 64,000 pixels. However, if you were designing in a 640x480 resolution, you would be working with 307,000 pixels, and so on.
