Webtoon creators’ collaborations of 2020

Happy New Year 2021!

Last Year my friend LisHikaru, the creator of “the Sands of Gods” webtoon had introduced me to the thing which is called webtoon collaborations, which is a collectively created by fellow creators art in a form of vertical scroll, where everyone draws their original characters from webcomics (or webtoons – which is a term used for comics hosted on webtoon comic publishing platform)  all entries in these collaborations are united by one theme, sometimes color palette and/or background.

Not only I got a chance to meet other fellow-creators this way, but it is also a very fun and creative activity which also serves promotional purposes. It is very hard to find any title on webtoon unless it is a part of add revenue program, and gets advertisment from the site staff.

Webtoons have two parts of the website

Originals –  for contracted comics which are being published by the site itself on a weekly schedule.

And webtoon Canvas – for anyone who want to use this website as free hosting for their comics. I am only talking about webtoon canvas’ creators in this post.

So, enough talking let’s have a look at the results of our collective creative activity

I have two comics published on webtoon canvas.

TIME TO LIVE COLLABORATIONS

(my manga Time to Live on Webtoon)

1) Maslenitsa collaboration dedicated to our slavic holiday. Creator- Lis Hikaru

Here is my entry:

Here is the link to see full collaboration – MASLENITSA

2) Mermaid feat. Annabelle from “Time to Live” who turned into  a  Mermaid for this special occasion. Creator- Lis Hikaru

And the link to see full collaboration – MERMAY

3) Zodiac feat. Annabelle again ^_^ collab leader that time was dreamcakes, the creator of “The prince and the wolf” webtoon. Every Zodiac sign was represented by two characters one girl and one boy. Annabelle was Libra, I have chosen this sign because I feel like it represents her the best always balancing between her dark and light sides.

4) Canvas criminals organized by MarieJaneWorks, the author of “The Alley Cat” feat my pretty demon Shane from Time to Live.

Warm summer rain, colorful Hydrangea flowers in full blossom, umbrellas of various vibrant colors; couples hiding from rain under the trees, jackets and umbrellas. People running, dancing and having fun in the puddles splashing water; 

Summer rainstorm with heavy clouds and lightning. Raindrops on the window while someone sitting on the windowsill with a book and cup of coffee.

That was a full year of collective creativity in review. Thanks to all amazingly talented creators who took part in these collaborations and the ones who organised, put together and made beautiful designs for logos and backgrounds.

Webtoon “Fallen Clouds”, trying new format of storytelling.

About my comic “Fallen clouds”

Somewhere far away in the North there is a land where clouds fall from the sky and cover everything with a soft cold blanket. Erifeya is a beautiful southern Nymph ready to risk her life for a chance to see the snow. After a stubborn northern barbarian Ratibor saves her from the deadly cold, Erie decides to return the favor. Nymph offers magical help in search of his sister, kidnapped by the warlock. Their journey full of adventures, sweet romance, and spooky creatures of Slavic mythology awaits

This year has been a bit crazy with global pandemic and all. I hope you all are doing well.

I came to tell here what I’ve been up to for the whole year of 2020

In the end of May 2020, I’ve began publishing my new comic project on webtoon canvas. This experience was interesting at least. Not only I made a decision to try creating a full colored comic, I also changed format. Instead of the pages, which I usually draw on A4 format, I went webtoon – vertical scroll format rout. And, hoo boy, I did struggle with it. Not only it takes me several times longer to make panels in full color, but I also had to change the format of thinking and push it beyond page limits. Sometimes it worked. Sometimes it didn’t. At the end I decided to make normal pages, as I used to, and crop them afterwards with rearranging for the vertical scroll. Scroll is good for smartphones, I can see why it became so popular lately. Not every one owns PC but a lot of people own smartphones nowadays. Not everyone, of course, but more and more people everyday. But even from the PC tablet it is hard to read at least for me – the text is too big the frames are too big. So, I prefer to have both formats available. Shame – it took me too long to realize. As they say, to live is to learn, or something like that.

Here is the video of one of the latest pages I have drawn, recorded with Clip Studio Paint App on tablet PC. One and half minute video actually took me three evenings to draw and color this page. And this one was relatively easy to draw.

Check out my comic on Webtoon

Also my friend LisHikaru, the author of “the Sands of Gods” webtoon had introduced me to amazing world of other webtoon canva’s creators and collaboration. Oh gosh! Those webtoon collabs we made together with other creators from Canvas section on Webtoons were the most bright impression of this year spent in lock down and remote work.

I mean I also got my second degree at uni, but that was definitely not as impressing as collabing with all the wonderful artists out there. So honored to be able to take part in such fun activity alongside amazing comic creators.

Fallen Clouds or what the heck does this supposed to mean.

Well, that is the title of my colored comic, which you are able to read for free on webtoon Canvas and Tapas. My original title is “Where the clouds fall on earth”. (Which was supposed to mean “snow”.)

However, after some thinking was done on my part, I decided to shorten it. I’ve always been using “fallen clouds” as working title for this story anyway. I thought something shorter would be much easier searchable on the comic reading ups and give less chances of misspelling and mispunctuating since webtoon’s app recognizes punctuation as well and not show the search results if you mistype the title.

As of today when I’m writing this post on December of 2020, my comic got 2,6 thousands readers on webtoon. It is bizarre to think about. I’ve never had more then hundred people interested in my stuff. And here I have more. I am not sure how many of those people are real, tho. There are actual readers who reading my story and leaving comments on every episode I publish. It is shocking to me and I am so very grateful to each and everyone of them. Nice feedback helps me move forward with the story. And I want to thank them all. Unfortunately, webtoon doesn’t allow people to have profile pages, so I don’t know who they are. But I want to thank them all for taking time to write kind words about my story and drawings.

A also mirror this story on Tapas.io and I also have readers there which I am very grateful for!

New and old manga on Tapas and Webtoon

Hi!Hi!

This journal entry is dedicated to my manga ^_^
La la la laLa la la laLa la la la
I`ve been waiting for 10 years for this to happen.
I started this series in 2008-2009, then trashed all the pages I had by 2010.
Then I started again in 2013.  And paused for many reasons.
My story doesn’t wish to vanish. It wants to live. So, let it be!
It is Time. Time to Live. ^___^
As much as it “time to live” for my OCs inside the story, it is time to live for the story itself.
I`m uploading it on Tapas. The first episode was up this week, and I’m planning to upload once a week, We’ll see.
It’s paranormal/urban fantasy/romance with demons, witches and bunch of other supernatural creatures.
And I love this story, I can’t even express how much! I am so excited about this project of mine like I`ve never been before. :happybounce:
