Here are 3 of my quick tips I like that help me make my webtoon story:
- First I write my script in a dialogue only screenplay style
- I write one episode at a time
- Then I Use the 5W1H method to help categorize what is happening in each panel of that episode.
I struggle a lot with my perfectionism triggering my artist block because I get so hung up on rules or right and wrong.
So I just want to remind you all that there is no right or wrong way to create art. Do what fits you best and what brings you the most joy!
Now with that out of the way here are a few of my own personal tips that I tend to hop around on to help me make my webtoon story~
Tip 1: Writing my Script
You might be wondering why I don’t write my script in a heavy detail novel style and that’s because I’m currently doing my webtoon all on my own so it feels a bit overkill for me to write out all of the heavy detail descriptions.
Since I’m not working on a team and I don’t have to communicate with anyone else with directions on how a certain scene will look, I’m able to save on time with writing my webtoon story by just focusing writing out the characters dialogue~
Tip 2: One Episode at a Time
Since I get overwhelmed easily and also since I get upset if I spend weeks outlining a full story just to toss it I tend to just write my webtoon story one episode at a time.
After that episode is finished and all drawn up then I like to move to my next episode. There are other webtoon artist that like to work with their full story finished and others who don’t, so a good thing to keep in mind is to do what fits you best~
Remember there is no right or wrong way to create art~
Tip 3: Using the 5W1H Method
My final tip I like to keep in mind when I’m making my webtoon story is to use the 5w1h method (who, what, when, where, why, how).
This problem solving method helps me to organize my thoughts and narrow down what all is happening within the episode and even within each individual panel.
Like I mentioned before I get overwhelmed easily and I will quickly lose track of the original point of the story so just filling out the answer for each 5w1h helps me to stay focused on one point and create a compelling webtoon story~
Because as they say keep it simple silly and my favorite stories that I love to read tend to be the most direct, simple and too the point and using the 5w1h method helps with that!
If you don’t believe me go ahead and check out my webtoon Catch Me! Fight Me! Love Me! and see for yourself~
I wrote each episode one at a time and used the 5w1h method to help me with the story and my webtoon currently is at 22 thousand subscribers on webtoon and a 5 star rating on amazon kindle~!
After you read it make sure to come back and tell me what you think ;D
