5 Top Webtoon Background Programs

5 of the top Webtoon background programs that Digital Webtoon Comic artist use are Clara.io, ACON3D, Sketchup, Clip Studio Paint assets and Home Design 3D~

  • Sketchup – Is one of the most popular apps that webtoon artist use to build their 3D backgrounds from scratch but it does have a steep learning curve but it’s still very useful and popular

  • Clara.io – Is a great free alternative to Sketchup because not only can you use them to make 3D model webtoon backgrounds on your mobile tablets but you can also export .stl files to .obj or .fbx files for free unlike in the sketchup free version

  • Clip Studio Paint 3D Model Assets – They have lots of 3D backgrounds that are already put together for you to just drag and drop into your webtoon and you can also use the persective tool feature if you want to add more details that keep to the perspective of the 3D asset~

  • Home Design 3D – Now I know this app is used for interior design purposes but I also like to use it to quickly design interior background for home scenes for my comic. It allows you to save it as a jpg and then I can import it into whatever art program I use (like ibispaint or clip studio paint) and paint over it to turn it into a webtoon background~

What I also like about Home Design is that you can use it on your desktop and on mobile to make webtoon backgrounds quick and easy!

I have a blog post how I use color balance and layer effects to quickly turn a 3D background or image into my webtoon backgrounds~
