Make It Look Beautiful – Kamil Macejko / gabinet.co.uk / Centrala (PL)

Before a comic is published in all its glory – printed, beautiful and smelling like new – it has to go through a few steps. At each of these steps, something can go wrong. I’ll show you and tell what you have to do so that one it’s printed, your comic will delight the eye, the colours will be how you planned, the blacks will be rich and the details sharp.
