What do Webtoon artists use for backgrounds?

The program I use to create backgrounds for all of my webtoons and webcomic is mostly Clip Studio Paint free 3D Asset, Acon3D and image filter effects.

Clip Studio also has a snap to perspective ruler feature too for webtoon comic artist that want to draw their backgrounds from scratch.

Another great feature that I like to use to add to my webtoon backgrounds is using the perspective rulers built into the 3D models.

That way I can add additional background pieces around the 3D model dolls if I wanted a certain background dynamic angel to match the 3D model doll.

For webtoon background maker you can build your own from scratch using programs like Sketchup, Clara.io, Daz or Blender.

The hang up I have with that is how time consuming and steep learning curve it is for me so I stick to making my webtoons with remade 3D model backgrounds or draw it from scratch.

Here is are few programs that I’ve used to make webtoon backgrounds from scratch or from photo edits.

Tips for making Webtoon Comic 3D Backgrounds

Using the color balance to edit the undertones of 3D background after you’ve rasterized the 3D model layer is a great way to blend your background to your art.

With Clip Studio Paint you can’t build 3D backgrounds but you can stack material assets on top of each other to make new webtoon backgrounds!

Here is a youtube video I made showing my process on making my Webtoon background with 3D models in Clip Studio Paint~
