I think I'm making my pages too small (600x800)

(Anything+1000)x1000 is fine by me.

Assuming 100 pixels per inch and a 8 x 10 inch surface, 1000 x 800 is a fair size. At 100 pixels per inch, 800 x 600 is only 8 inches by 6 inches. Higher resolution and it's tiny.

Then there is also increasing the page size and going with 8 1/2 x 11 and nudging up the resolution to 120 pixels per inch. Some are even going for 200 pixels but that's pushing it for most screen viewing.

Assuming you mean the size you're posting them at, not the size you're making them at. I like nice big art so I don't have to squint too much, so around 1000px wide is a good standard for me - Mine are currently just over 900px. If it gets below 800px wide I'm left wanting more. That said, your pages are easy to read and don't look 600x800 - I'd have sworn they were bigger.

I think the ideal page size depends on your intended platform.

As a general rule of thumb, I figure that having to shrink it down because it's too big is always better than having to blow it up because it's too small.

I always work pretty big (2000 x 2900 pixels), just to anticipate that my comic might appear in formats other than a standard web comic.

For example, I also post my work on Line Webtoons. They require a width of something like 800 pixels, with (typically) a much larger height dimension.

Platforms like comixology, or even print, have more specific requirements for pixel resolution, but they re generally pretty high
