    Finished, Printed, and displayed ArtRage Artwork

    The most difficult adjustment for me with digital art has been making it seem as "real" as my traditional art. When I finish a traditional art project my house smells of toxic chemicals, there is a huge mess to clean up and I've usually ruined at least one nice shirt. However, I usually have something ready to hang on a wall and make this world at least one painting more interesting. With digital, 99% of my art exists in a little manilla file folder on my desktop.

    I'm not sure if a thread like this already exists here or not, however I thought there needed to be a place to show off some of the completed, printed, and displayed artwork of ArtRage.

    This can also be a place to discuss the in's and out's of the printing, framing, and displaying process.

    To date, I have had only one project printed. I had it done through Costco on standard poster paper (pretty inexpensive). It was more or less to get a feel for the printing process and to see how well the resolution, size, colors, and values worked with an inexpensive printing.

    I apologize if a thread such as this already exists (I was unable to find one).

    So here we go... Let's see it ArtRagers!

    Let's see how it turns out! I am also eager to know about the printing ventures of ArtRagers here.

    A great thread and some lovely artwork too - it's nice to see how work looks when it's framed up and out there!

    For my own home use I print my digital stuff on my Canon Pixma printer - the inks are archival and if you print high res images on high quality papers it gives an excellent finish. I've had some on my walls at least two years now with no loss of colour - obviously out of direct sunlight. So, unless you need larger sizes or are selling your work I think quality inkjet printers do the job.

    My husband makes some of my frames. I like chunky, modern frames and the example in my photo is done in sycamore. I also buy up cheap ready-mades when I see some I like and then tailor-make my art to fit, rather than create some art and then try to find a frame!

    The example is an ArtRage painting of a cupcake - if you hadn't guessed.Sorry about my hand reflected in the glass.

    Just as an afterthought, it sits on a picture shelf (not shown)that my husband put up. If you haven't seen one, it's a great way of displaying framed artwork. No nails in the wall and you can swap them around and change them whenever the mood takes. You simply put a groove in the shelf as you would to display plates.

    They should make a room freshener with the smell of the art studio after a painting for when we finish one.
    Nice paintings.
