I first was worried that their would be a big gap if I cut my panels in half and uploaded them like that but thankfully the way webtoon is set up each cropped panel blends in seamlessly to each other!

Uploading a webtoon can be a little tricky so I hope this was helpful!❤☺ ##lifeathome ##webtoon ##tiktokartist

Now I can just draw 1-2 panels per webtoon page file and upload them in small batches like that.

This helps take the burden off my computer or program from dealing with a massive file and I can now zoom in and avoid that weird blurry effect that happens when working on a file size that is super long but not super wide. And added plus is that the file sizes are a lot smaller too so yay!

Webtoon Formatting tip: Keep the size short and simple

When I first read and started creating a webtoon I thought that the way they format their files was all one long page just like how traditional comic pages are made.

I later learned the unique way webtoon pages are formatted and that’s to cut up the page into short batched groups instead of one long page with 20 plus panels.

Creating my webtoon in shorter page batches helps take the strain off of the art program that I’m using to create the webtoon page.

With Clip Studio Paint there is an export height limitation that can get a little frustration when you’ve drawn the whole long form webtoon page and now can no longer export it. So short and sweet was the answer for me!

How Many Panels Should a Webtoon have?

I saw that for Featured Webtoon artist they usually have about 35+ panels for the webtoon but I’ve also seen other genre fields have less webtoon panels so I’d say it all depends on how many panels you need to tell your story. I personally like to do between 18-20 panels because its what my story naturally falls in and it’s what I can manage workload wise.

Again I do recommend you keep in mind how well your program can handle long formatted file sizes when you’re creating your webtoon. I suggest creating the file size 1600 x 4800 that way you can zoom in closely to ink in your webtoon and avoid that weird blurry effect that happens when you have your working file size at 800 instead.

My Webtoon Page Format Set-up

The only time you need to have your webtoon page format file at 800 x 1280 is when you are exporting and uploading it onto webtoon’s platform. When you’re drawing your webtoon you can have the file size double or triple that size to make drawing a lot easier.

When you export that you can go to a handy website called Croppy that will help crop your file to the webtoon file format of both Tapastic or Webtoon; it’s awesome!

Now another really good tool that I use to help me figure out where to place my panels on my webtoon page or how many panels I can fit on one file while keeping it readable is the golden rule of third guide. You can find more information on my other blog post My Secret Webtoon Tool

What should you do next?

Make sure your file size isn’t super long and instead work in shorter batches. You’ll be able to avoid the frustration that I felt with my computer and program being unable to handle such a long file. It’s a life saver to work shorter and simpler~

A Webtoon Artist Guide to Brainstorming Story Ideas https://www.s-morishitastudio.com/a-webtoon-artist-guide-to-brainstorming-story-ideas/ https://www.s-morishitastudio.com/a-webtoon-artist-guide-to-brainstorming-story-ideas/#respond Sat, 28 Mar 2020 01:08:53 +0000 https://www.s-morishitastudio.com/?p=5294 Have you ever read a great webtoon and wanted to write a webtoon of your own but one tiny thing was stopping you….the painful fact that you don’t know how to write a story….or maybe that’s just a struggle that I have.

Well this is where Pinterest comes into play! This is my go to site whenever I need to brainstorm fun webtoon story ideas!

Now I can understand how weird it is that I say that I can’t write a story because I have currently 4 books published and a handful of webtoons published online but trust me when I say that I still freeze up when it comes to writing a webtoon story.

Thankfully I’ve found a way to come up with story fun and creative webtoon story ideas! It’s now become my go to number one way to come up with story ideas and that’s to utilize pinterest!

Helpful Keywords to Brainstorm a Compelling Webtoon Story:

Whenever I feel a mental writing block or can’t figure out what story to write I usually turn to Pinterest.

On Pinterest I’m able to find a whole gold mind of webtoon story ideas and I create my own boards to save them on.

Here are a list of the story search terms that I usually research:

  • Alternative Universe prompts (a.k.a AU Prompts)
  • OC Prompts (Original Character Prompts)
  • OTP Prompt (One True Pairing Prompt)
  • Dialogue prompts
  • Scenario prompts
  • Story Prompts

Now I do want to add a disclaimer that you should never plagiarize (which is the act of taking someone else’s creation and passing it off as yours. i.e saying that you created the character Naruto when Kishimoto was the one that created the character.)

There is a difference between plagiarism and getting inspiration but I won’t go into detail about that right now, just keep it as a rule of thumb that we all get inspiration from everywhere which is why there is nothing new under the sun.

So don’t go taking someone else’s apple pie and say that you created that apple pie, instead get inspired by their apple pie and create your own apple cinnamon pie or apple crumb pie.

I’m learning more each day just how awesome Pinterest really is for webtoon creators and writers alike! What are some of the ways you guys go about figuring our webtoon story ideas when you can’t think up anything?

What should you do next?
