Greetings Folks!

I need to make a print of this asap but am unsure whether the colors are right. Can some with a calibrated monitor offer some feedback on colour and brightness please?

thanks in advance

Given that it is not exactly a completely photo-realistic image, how is anyone supposed to know what the "right" colors are? I didn't notice anything which looked blown-out or totally blocked-up, if that helps any ...

Not sure what it is supposed to look like, but on my calibrated monitor, they look nicely saturated and appropriate for the design. Not yanking my eyes out of their sockets. The skeletons appear to be a very dark olive color.

Yeah I hear ya. Just when I print here it comes out really dark. Didnt want to sent it to print without being a bit more certain whether it was my display or computer.

thanks

Well, some of the shadows in the bottom part are pretty dark, but it looks OK on my screen. But different printers/papers are different too -- if you send it out and the print looks significantly different from what you expect, most places will re-print it for you without much fuss.

Cool! Thanks! Of course I'm using DPCPrints so I hope this applies!
