This is a post for comic book artists preparing
their pages for their publisher or colourist. I’m aware that many
pros still don’t know some of this stuff, often because the bigger
publishers have production teams who will take the incorrectly sized
or shaped pages and adjust them before passing on to colourists or
for print. However, this a) is giving more work to people that you
can easily do yourself and b) reduces the amount of control you have
over how your work is printed. It makes sense to provide files that
will present your work in the best way possible.
Good morning, SMblr! This is an assignment for one of my classes; while this isn’t *exactly* a tech brief, it’s right up my alley. I took a bit of an informal approach, but I want to share in case anyone out there would find this useful/have something to add. This is still a draft.
Of course, there is more than one way to make a calling script; some people like to set up different columns in the margins and others like the dreaded text boxes…. But this is the way that works best for me, in Word, at least. You can do the same thing in Excel too!
