Thanks for the responses, and my apologies for not responding sooner! I've been putting a darkroom together in my basement and haven't touched the computer for a little while!
The reason I've asked in the first place was mainly to anticipate the kinds of issues that I might see when the darkroom is done and running.
Someone already said this, but I don't need it look like a box of crayons. I want it to look real.
The images that I see that make me wary are scanned and probably manipulated. I just wondered what they'll really look like after printing instead of on the monitor.
Thanks all for posting your responses, I think I've found them all to be very helpful in managing my expectations.
