The way that I see webtoons is that they are just comic pages that have 2 panels instead of the typical 3-4 that traditional comic pages have.
Each webtoon episode size is 800 pixels wide and 1280 pixels long and it either has to be exactly that size or less but not any bigger.
When you upload each individual webtoon image file on mobile responsive webtoon comic sites like Tapas or Webtoon it is stacked vertically instead of horizontally for easier mobile reading.
Here are all the sizing guides beginner webtoon artist will need to easily upload their webtoons onto LINE Webtoon:
- Main Thumbnail size : W436 X H436 pxl (This is the thumbnail at the top of the page and what’s usually seen in the canva section like your series avatar)
- Episode Thumbnail size : W160 X H151 pxl (This is the image that’s shown beside each episode)
- Webtoon Upload Panel size : W800 X H1280 pxl (This is the actual size your webtoon files needs to be in order to upload onto their platform.)
Webtoon panels are actually made of lots of individual images uploaded separately.
Then LINE or Tapas platform then stacks them on top of each other so it looks like one seamless vertical strip.
Now if you’re trying to draw a traditional comic or manga and then I recommend the A4 paper to be the closets fit.
The size that I draw my webtoons in is usually 1600 x 4600 (sometimes 2400) which is around double the size of LINE Webtoon upload size.
A4 is 2480 pixels wide and 1748 pixels long so you can easily fit 2 webtoon panels per A4 page.
After you either scan or take a photo of your comic page you can then use croppy website to easily resize and crop and upload it to Webtoon or Tapas.
Clip Studio Paint as well as Krita has webtoon slicing features that you can use to easily format your webtoon if you like to draw your webtoon in one long vertical strip instead of in individual page format.
