I hope someone can help me. I’m new to digital painting, and I’ve been working on some new pieces. I’m working mainly with Photoshop’s oil brushes, which emulate the effects of oil painting quite well - onscreen, but these effects are not carried through well to the printed image.
I know enough about printing artwork to convert from RGB to CMYK and to work at a high enough resolution for printing - however, when I print, my images go kind of flat looking, blurryish and grainy.
Is there a better paper to print on than others - glossy vs matte, etc? Or if I took them to a print shop, would they print out better than on my rinky dink inkjet printer? Or is it just that the more painterly effects in Photoshop don’t translate to the printed image?
Thanks so much ahead of time…
