A question for everybody

Do you use to print your digital works or the commission that you ask for?

I thouhgt in that question because...I actually use to do it.
And right now that I'm doing a digital commission, and I'm thinking "When I'll finish this I'll print it and put it in my commissions folder, but...this guy would do the same? Or they only buy art just for have it in the computer? Is like..only to buy pixels but nothing in real life"
That's the same reason why I enjoy a lot doing tradional art and shipping it, because my work is really coming to the hands who ask me for it. He/she has the original work that I did.

I've tried making prints of the stuff I like, but I've only used basic 20/24 pound paper for that... and the prints didn't turn out very well.  If Sam's Club has some card stock or matte photo paper when I go, I'll give it another shot (once I get my ink jet back from loaning it out).

But until I've got my own place... they aren't going on the wall.  Well, the not so clean ones anyway.

When I have ink for my printer again I have to print some pics I got the last few months but I printed some pics before that I commissioned.

No tengo mas que  un par de bocetos comisionados, así que no se me había ocurrido la idea de imprimirlos, aunque tal vez sea una buena idea hacerlo si tengo alguna comisión a color.

Not normally for digital art... Normally I use it for device wallpapers and screen savers. :)

I also do that with the commissions I made for everybody, to be able to keep track of what ever I'm doing and also to be able to show my art  without the need to have a computer on my side all the time.

For my Furry Portfolio !!!

I used to, but there was a period of time a few years ago in which I was getting multiple commissions per week, and I lost track.

...That, and with a running total of 630+ individual commissioned pieces, I could spend all day organizing, laying out, printing, etc.  XD

If it's a badge, I'll print the digital picture, and then get it laminated. Otherwise, I do not.

I have two lovely poster sized prints of work an artist did for me. They were printed by Costco and turned out just great.

The person them self can decide to print it or not.
This was they can chose the quality of the print and paper for themselves.

Tho I agree, I like it when I have traditional done then I get it in my own hands/paws.
It is actual work someone did and you get to personally hold it.

Interesting....I've only commissioned someone once...its' my av...I haven't printed it but probably should.  I have printed other stuff that I really like if I'm going to actually put it on the wall or something though.

Do you value the paper or what's on it?  Isn't it the same with the commission?  Sure it only exists on your computer as pixels, but one could say that on paper, it's just some ink.  It's just a medium change.

The same argument with video games really, physical medium vs digital distribution.  Though in that case, beyond any measure of feeling like you own something, I could make arguments for practicality and lasting beyond the life time of the servers distributing the game.
