How to make a Webtoon in Medibang

Medibang’s Panel divide tool as well as the canva resize tool can be used to make webtoon panels since webtoons are vertical stacked comic pages

Medibang Paint makes it super simple to create webtoon panels by using their Panel Divide Tool.

The reason why I like using the Panel Divide tool for creating panels is because it makes super straight and smooth border lines super quickly and I can adjust the shape manually without having to redraw that panels.

They also have a pen tool and erase tool and layer functions that you can use to create your rough drafts of your webtoon or webcomic.

For inking I use their pen tool and keep everything at default. I know that creating webtoon comics can be overwhelming when your not familiar with the process or what tools to use but hopefully this can help make it less scary.

How to Create Webtoon Vertically

Webtoons are typically made by individual images that have been split in half.

Each image is then uploaded onto LINE Webtoon or Tapas platform and their site automatically connects each image together to look like one long vertical strip.

LINE Webtoons format size is 800px by 1280px so that means each individual image file is no wider or longer than this.

I draw my webtoon double that size because my lines will appear way too blurry and pixilated if I draw in such a small canva.

When I’m done drawing it I can then use Medibang canva resize feature to slice my panels.

All I have to do is export my file changing the width to 800pixels and the height will be 2400 px or 1200 px.

After that I just use the canva resize feature and split it in half using guide lines and saving them with separate names.

An easier way to do this would also be to use Croppy website where it will automatically resize and slice your webtoon for you~

What program to use to make a webtoon

The most common programs that webtoon artist like myself like to use would be Clip Studio Paint and a few others like to use Paint Tool sai or Procreate.

The reason why I prefer Clip Studio Paint and Medibang over Paint Tool Sai and Procreate is because they’re more comic centric focused.

Medibang Paint is also a great alternative and very similar to Clip Studio Paint since it has a lot of similar tools like the panel devide and canva resize and guide lines to help slice your webtoon panels.
