FAQ for members and customers
Is it necessary to draw in CMYK format? How can I convert RGM into CMYK?
You don't need to convert your art into CMYK, we'll do it ourselves during layout prosses according the printing house requirements. Please send your arts in RGB format.
Please check the way your art looks in CMYK format during drawing in order to avoid distortion of bright colors (lime green, crimson, turquoise, neon-blue colors). You can do it using your Photoshop in two ways:
1. Convert the picture into CMYK: Image > Mode > CMYK Color
2. CMYK preview: View > Proof Setup > Working CMYK.
Press Ctrl+Y to use preview and then press Ctrl+Y to turn it back into RGB

How will I get the author's copy?
1. We will arrange a meeting to give the author's copies to all member living in Moscow. The date of the meeting will be posted on the website and VK on 1sy May.
2. If you live in another city or country your artbook copy will be sent by mail at our expense. Please tell the way you'd like to get your copy to the curator you contacted with.
Can I show and stream the prosses of illustration creating in my blog?
You can stream the prosses and WIPs but you mustn't show the final arts till the artbook release. You should post the final arts only after starting selling day. Use this hashtag #Witch_Artbook in your social media and galleries for WIPs, in-prosses and streams. This way you'll help people to find our project.
Can I draw in a traditional way (water colors, gouache, oil, acrylic, ink, copics)?
Yes, you can. But you have to care about the scan quality by yourself and fill the PSD model with it.
Will my copyrights be protected?
All rights reserved. All project members give their permission to print only one edition of "Witch Artbook". All illustration arts belong to the artists. None of the artbook parts can be used without written permission of the illustration authors.
Will the electronic version be on sale?
The electronic version will NOT be on sale as far as this format isn't suitable for not-commercial projects due to author's rights of artists. You can see all illustration in author's blogs and galleries and on our project VK page after the release.
Can I get an autograph of the artbook members?
If the artists attend the members' meeting in Moscow, you can ask them to sign the book. But we can't be sure about the time they come and leave. The meeting date will be posted on 1st May.
