Webtoon Artist Advice: Basic Brush Edition

Webtoon Artist Advice: Basic Brush Edition

There’s a reason why they say keep it simple silly! When it comes to creating my webtoon I like to 3 of the default brushes; I’m a simple bean~

Have you thought about making a webtoon but you don’t know what brush tool to use for your lineart or coloring? 

Since there are so many options available it can be a little overwhelming but the main brush tool that I use when creating clean line art for my webtoon and illustration is actually the G Pen in both Clip Studio Paint and in Medibang Paint.

I like to keep things sweet and simple because I’m prone to getting overwhelmed and freezing up if I try to take everything in at once. So if you’d like to achieve the same quality that I have in my webtoon and art pieces then all you’ll really need is the G Pen.

Simple and Clean

(I can always hear the Kingdom Heart song in my head whenever I see those two words together~)

Alright as an extra tid-bit-tip for my personal coloring and inking style I like clean crisp line art for my webtoon and using the G pen with the anti-alias off helps me to achieve that crisp sharp look.

Now if you prefer more of a softer shading or line art style then I would suggest trying out the airbrush tool and also the opaque watercolor brush. These are brushed that also come with Clip Studio paint so no need to hunt these down and download them.

When you first start out creating a webtoon it can be overwhelming because so much goes into it that is why I recommend just sticking to the basic tools and default settings of the program. When you get a little more comfortable using those default settings then you can expand and test out a few different brushes.

The majority of my webtoon is drawn with the default brush and just slight edits to the setting and I really like how the end product turned out….am I bossting….I sound snobby….anywhoodle just keep in mind to keep it simple, stick to the basics and have fun!

What should you do next?
