There’s more than one way to create a webtoon but let me share my process with you to help give a little insight~
The simplest way that I create a webtoon is by breaking up each process into bite size steps that way I can check off each on my to do list~
Here’s my simple steps I take to I create my webtoon:
- Write character dialogue
- Thumbnail characters
- Add panel
- Ink in characters
- Add character colors
- Add background
- Add word ballon
- Save & export
Now I know all of this is easier said than done and there is a lot of steps in between but making a simple to do list like this helps my webtoon process not feel so overwhelming~
Now the program I use to draw my webtoon is Clip Studio Paint EX~ The reason why is because it has a lot of comic specific features like a webtoon canva’s template that I can use that will fit the webtoon publishing format, as well as pre-made background images and 3D models for me to use to help me draw the things I can’t draw~
The hardware I use to create my webtoon on my computer is my Wacom Cintiq Display tablet that I got back in 2010 but I don’t recommend this display tablet for beginners because it is a very big investment and it needs a computer in order for it to be used so I totally recommend using a standalone tablet like an iPad or Samsung Tablet to draw a webtoon~
Lastly the platform that I use to publish my webtoon on for free is called Webtoon Canva as well as Tapas~ I prefer to post on free publishing platforms because I’m able to funnel whatever traffic I build from those platforms to my personal website and it helps to get my work in front of more readers since Webtoon and Tapas have their own audience~
One additional tip that you might be wondering is how do I market my webtoon? Well since I’m a big introvert and I have little to no social skills I like using image seo and search engines to market my work.
The search engines help me to get my webtoon in front of the people who are looking for it.
Now you might be wonder how I do that? Well I use Pinterest to help me utilize image seo, which is just a fancy modern name for what I’m mostly familiar with the dewy decimal system, similar to the one at a public library~
So I post my webtoon images on Pinterest and have my keywords in the descriptions and have it link back to my comic page and that’s one of the ways I market my webtoon~
