  • Illustrating and Publishing a Children's Book- How to do it

    This post may contain affiliate links, which means I will receive a commission if you purchase through links. This is my version of how I created my first kid's book 'Sir Cotton Wotton Puff Tail: Colors' as an artist and writer. Hey, my name's Siaddie, and I mostly create web comics and manga, also I have plenty of novels in work that should've been published by now. But aside from that, here are the steps I took when I was creating my kid's book. Purchase my book 'Sir Cotton Wotton Puff Tail: Colors BUY HERE 1 Get the story together Okay, so here we are. Remember when it comes to writing for kids everything is entirely different, especially the age range. There's much information online about the different age ranges in kid's books. I advise you to be sure to do your research before getting started. My target age for my book was ages 2-5. What I did was create a quick draft of my story, then finalize everything in Microsoft Word. 2 Book Size The next thing I did was decide which platform I was going with so I can know what book size the printing company works best with. Always do this first because everyone's printing requirement is different unless you don't mind making adjustments later to fit requirements. 3 Purchase ISBN After completing the story phase, I purchase my ISBNs. You can purchase ISBN from your local agency. All ISBNs come from Bowker. 4 Storyboards I'm all about planning beforehand. So now that I have my story at hand, I began doing my storyboards- a tip to every artist who loves writing is to always plan your story using quick sketches, just to get a grasp of what you want on each page which helps a lot. Storyboards are very important, never leave this out. Here are some drawing tools you'll need: Tablet with pen Drawing app (I use Clip Studio Paint), for artists on a budget you can use Medibang Paint which is free, and Procreate which is only 9.99. Be sure to take a look at tutorials on YouTube to familiarize yourself and understand how the program works. 5 Drawing Phase This phase was the longest. Although the pages were simple, It took me around four months to complete all pages. I created all my drawings in Clip Studio Paint. 6 Formatting & Editing You can choose to self-edit or have a professional edit your book. My book was simple so I carefully self-edited my book, then had a friend backcheck for errors. 7 Publishing When I was finally done with formatting, I uploaded my book to Amazon KDP and now my book is set and ready to purchase. 8 Marketing Now that your book is published, it's time for marketing.

  • How to use 3D Background for Webtoon

    Let's start by saying, that using 3D background to create a webtoon makes creating less complicated. Instead of spending hours on a single background, that time can be narrowed to minutes by simply using 3D backgrounds. In case you have no idea where to get 3D backgrounds, I suggest you visit this article on where to find 3D backgrounds: Where to get 3D backgrounds for Webtoon How to use 3D Backgrounds For Webtoon Before we begin, all drawings are done using the program Clip Studio Paint. So you have now got hands-on 3D backgrounds but don't understand how to edit and gain that natural feel when editing background, Here's how: 1. ) Understand Correct Orientation Where or how background should be placed behind drawings. Backgrounds can be added before or after rough sketches, but I prefer to add backgrounds first to understand how or where I want characters to be drawn. From there I lower the background capacity and begin sketching, line art, and then adding flat colors. 2.) Shadows & Lighting Before the final detail is added, I usually add effects to the background and then determine the type of lighting and shadows to be added to the drawing. In the background, shadows, and lighting are added in appropriate areas using a soft brush. 3.) Add Effects Moving onto effects, if the character is in action (moving), you can blur the background to express movement within the panel. To do this, go to filter, select blur tool, and choose how strong you require the blur effect. And you can also choose the direction of the blur effect.
