YouTube Video Tutorial

I want to show the videotutorial that I prepared for better experience

1. Layout Comic

For the comic project what publish in social media, prepare a layout sketch of the comic starting with two panels in format square (1:1)

With knowledge in artistic anatomy, draw basic shapes of the character's body

With pencil colors of red and blue, sketching the character in blue color and the elements like comic sound effects and text balloon in red color

And finally with the lineart and the color for the final result.

2. Design a comic sounds effects

Now we will design the sound effects for our final comic, you can take references in the traditional or digital comic formats as starting points

EXTRA TIP: You can work with vector graphics programs like Illustrator and Affinity Designer to create and import your designs in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphic) format in the latest version of Clip Studio Paint

Import > Vector > and open the SVG file to Clip Studio Paint, and the file converts in vector layer

The advantage with work with vectors it they are non-destructive, scalable and you can distort

Demonstration in zooming

And now it's time to design!

3. Animation

With the animation tools of Clip Studio Paint, we can create hand-to-hand animation or even make dynamic movements to the elements of the webcomic

1. Create the timeline with a total of 72 seconds

2. Enable the keys for the layers

We start to transform until we create new keyframes for the animation, see that the keyframes are linear or smooth and change the anchor point

With the comic sounds effects and text ballon animated, now you can copy and paste to the comic panel. You have to enable keyframes to positionate in the group folder layer


And we conclude with our animated webcomic and sound effects. You can export in format .GIF or format .MP4 to publish in social media like Instagram

Thanks for getting here and I'm glad you read the tutorial and I hope it was useful and practical.
