Long time fan of SFF.
Interests
Well, I was happy with the results of Quiet Strength - Silent Vulnerability overall but I did notice that when expanded, the background stars are not the quality I want.  So I went searching on you tube for a Gimp 2.8 video that might hold the answer. What I found was interesting to me.  The tiger drawing was scanned in at 300 dpi so I think that image got worked on in 300 dpi. However, the background canvas I placed it on was at the default setting of 72 dpi because I did not realize I had to adjust that. Live and learn some more I guess.  I am not sure what the Saturn image is because I did the drawing in MS Paint and saved it as a jpeg.  Yes, I know, MS Paint, but I could not recall how to get circles or ellipses in Gimp.  Hey, I am working this stuff out as I go man.  Anyway, learned something new and hopefully I will make even better paintings now.  Will I correct QSSV, maybe, but I may not too, since when you work with physical mediums, you can't easily correct paintings whenever you learn a better way of making them.  That is how people see your progress.

I am glad you like it and that it turned out well.  Also, thanks for posting the cover I did for you and have you thought of maybe taking a different tact with the story and maybe pare it down to a novella.  I hope my image inspires you and it could still be used to self publish a novella.

Hey Robert! I just signed into DeviantArt after a long time of not signing in - obviously. Good idea about paring down the story to a novella. I might do that, but there are a lot of other things I'm working on now, so I guess, I have moved on. Thanks!
