ibispaint is not only a free webtoon comic drawing app that can be downloaded and used to draw a webtoon on my android phone but it also comes with a lot of comic specific features like free material assets, comic font, word balloons AND a built in screen recording feature!

I legit LOVE ibispaint so much! On top of that they are compatible with Clip Studio Paint and they also allow you to use their premium brushes if you choose too after watching one of their ads~

Now if you don’t have the most experience or skills with drawing then the free 3D model app called Magic poser will seriously be your best friend!

Since there are a lot of things I don’t know how to draw I use 3D model apps like Magic poser as a tool to create a character pose or scene to pose my characters in and then I will trace over screenshots of the 3D models within ibispaint and voila I have a webtoon~

Finally in regards to 3D backgrounds and the scariness they bring because of how difficult backgrounds are due to either visionary overload or just how mentally complex perspective can be never fear because that’s where Home Design 3D comes in to help save the day!

I love to use this interior design app to help me make my webtoon backgrounds all on my smartphone. My process is still the same when I am using the magic poser app~

I will take a screenshot of the background and will place the image within the ibispaint app and draw my characters overtop of it and voila x2 my webtoon is done and it’s all on my phone!
