As a webtoon artist, you probably have an idea of what you want to accomplish with your work. You have goals and dreams for the future. But how do we get from where we are now to where we want to be? That’s just one part of the equation—you also need ideas that will eventually turn into great stories!
Be curious. Ask yourself questions, and don’t be afraid to explore them.
Read books and watch movies. There are literally thousands of stories out there that you can get inspiration from, so make sure you’re keeping your eye on the ball when it comes to brainstorming ideas for your own work!
Be positive! It’s important not to assume that all of your ideas will be good ones; but this isn’t something that should discourage you from continuing with a project—if anything, it should motivate you by showing off just how much potential there is in this world we live in!
Brainstorming is a process of generating ideas. You might have heard this term before, but what does it really mean?
Brainstorming is the act of generating as many ideas as possible. It’s not just one idea—it’s an entire list! Brainstorming is about getting your creative juices flowing and letting them flow freely. It can be messy, but that doesn’t matter because it all leads to something good!
The best way to brainstorm is by writing down everything you think of on a piece of paper or in a text document so you don’t forget any of the ideas that pop into your head while you’re thinking about them (and trust me, there are going to be plenty).
Brainstorming comic idea tips:
The first step to brainstorming comic ideas is to know what you want the comic to be about. Do you want it to be a love story? A mystery? A horror story? Whatever genre you choose, there are certain elements that will help make your comics successful or you can choose a genre that you enjoy which is something I do and sometimes I will totally disregard if it will be sucessful or not because I’m just having fun creating a story and sharing it with my circle that also enjoy it too~
The following list contains items that will help develop your ideas:
Characters: Create characters with personalities that are different from each other so they can stand out in the story. It’s also important that they have flaws or weaknesses so they’re not perfect characters who can do everything right all the time.
10 elements I like to use to writing comics:
Character: The characters that you include in your comic will serve as the foundation of your story. They will be what readers relate to and root for, so make sure they are realistic, relatable, and interesting.
Setting: The setting is where all of the action takes place in your webtoon. It can be anything from a small town to an alien planet!
- Plot: The plot is how each individual episode of your webtoon will flow together into one cohesive story arc. Make sure it’s not too complicated or convoluted; simple plots tend to work best here!
- Dialogue: Good dialogue can add humor and personality to both characters and scenes alike—but be careful not to get too wordy with it!
- Conflict: Conflict drives any good story forward; without it there would be no point in making comics at all! A few examples include rivalry between siblings (or between friends), fighting against an evil force trying destroy humanity…the list goes on forever really…
That being said though don’t let this become too much of a focus because then none of those other elements mentioned above will matter anymore either since everything else was just used up during those big fight scenes where everyone gets hurt while saving humanity’s future (which inevitably ends up being saved due only because some random person shows up out nowhere with no explanation).
Instead focus first off on making sure there aren’t any holes left open like unanswered questions about why exactly these aliens decided now instead earlier when we could’ve been prepared better – who knows maybe even prevented this entire crisis altogether.”
Comic script Tips
A comic script is a brief description of the actions and dialogue that will be used in a comic book. The script should be written in a way that’s easy to understand for the artist, as they’ll be drawing what you write down. A good comic script should be as detailed as possible, so it’s important to include details such as characters’ facial expressions, body language and any sound effects that may come into play during the story (like footsteps or doors opening).
This can help you generate ideas for a webtoon
The key thing to remember is that there is no right or wrong way to brainstorm ideas. If you’re having trouble coming up with a new webtoon, just think about all the things that interest and excite you in life. You might be surprised at how many things can spark an idea for your story!
