We've had several requests for prints of the DRM cover painting I posted last week, so we've had some made and set up a BigCartel shop to handle payments and delivery details etc.
The link to the shop is at the bottom of this post.
The prints are A3, on nice thick 300gsm paper, and look really good. I've got one framed up on my wall here already!
I had to tweak the colours a little bit. The original digital painting was intended for display on computer screens, and so was painted using the RGB colour space. Print uses the CMYK colour space which has a different 'gamut' to RGB, meaning there are some colours visible in RGB that don't exist in CMYK, and visa versa. The very brightest areas of the turbulence patterns used some extremely saturated colours that were RGB only, so I had to rebalance all the colours used to get a nice range that worked within the CMYK colour space.
Prints can be signed, if you like. Also, let us know if there's anything else we've done that you'd like a print of, as now we've got the shop set up it's easy enough for us to add more.
