The process is unlike ordinary printers. The pigments, not inks, are richer and produce a print that looks almost like the original painting. Most people have to look several times to see it is only a print. The original painting has to be scanned with a high resolution scanners, producing a digital file often several hundred megabytes in size so that every brush stroke is captured and then reproduced.

Additional notes on Mark Sussinno - He likens his painting in the following words... "suggesting the sense of light and space of the shallow-water aquatic environment, but I also feel the need to present the fish themselves such that they are recognizable to the average fisherman, who is most familiar with how a fish looks when it is out of water. When painting fish (either in oils or acrylics), my main focus is on creating an interesting abstract arrangement of shapes, colors, textures, and patterns, which I hope will also convey a more or less convincing impression of an underwater scene."
