While I can use a perspective ruler to draw my backgrounds by hand I wanted to share some time saving and fun little background styles effects that I use in Clip Studio Paint that beginners can start using to make their webtoons today~
Lineart for Black and White webtoon background:
With Clip Studio EX they have a feature that lets you extract the lines from 3D models so all that’s left is a really cool line art of the building without all of the colors and shadows~
Tone for Greyscale/Manga Style webtoon background:
Another little effect that I love with Clip Studio Paint is that it has the effect that will turn 3D models or photos into a tone style background which is also perfect for manga style backgrounds if you are wanting to do a more manga style webtoon~
Color for Anime Style webtoon background:
As I mentioned before Clip Studio Paint does have 3D models that are built in and free for artist to use to make their backgrounds and one of the biggest effects that I love with the 3D models is the ability to move the shadows around to help change the time of day for a specific scene I want to do for a background which is super helpful because my mind can’t visualize where the shadows should typically go so this is a great tool that I like to use for making my webtoon backgrounds.
Photo Filter for non-3D model webtoon background:
One super quick and easy way I like to do my backgrounds is by using the auto-action effect which gives a photo filter style look to my photos or imported images so they will look like a cartoon webtoon style background~
There is one auto-action I really like because it looks like a watercolor effect which I used to on a photo of my room and turned it into this webtoon anime style scene.
I think it’s super pretty for bright morning scenes or helps to set the tone for mellow gloomy scenes~
