I feel like Webtoon Canvas is becoming far too crowded with comics lately. Every artist and their mother is desperately trying to gain clout with their half-assed Webtoons about their quirky OCs doing nothing. I'm not saying that Canvas Webtoons are inherently bad, per say, but it's getting flooded with low-effort content from Instagram artists trying to become the next Originals Webtoon.

Doublepost, but also

>that stupid comment about the story of Demeter and Persephone originally being about mother-daughter love and empowering women

>in ancient Greece
>female empowerment

Lmfao these retards really can't make up their minds when it comes to a narrative. That isn't what the focus is. Through a tragic event, Persephone is transformed from the innocent maiden into the Queen of the Underworld. The process of this transformation demands the resolution of the tragedy. The crime against Persephone (the abduction) must be faced, and her role as a victim abandoned. Persephone must reclaim her power and her responsibility, She must give up Her naivety in order to become the Queen of the Underworld. She has to take responsibility for eating the pomegranate seeds. It is not good enough for Persephone to remain innocent and ignorant of her errors or to expect to be rescued repeatedly by others. If she holds onto this attitude, she remains the Maiden and continues to be the victim again and again. The journey to the Underworld involves diving to the depths of the psyche to confront the emotional scars of abuse and trauma. In doing so she reclaims her power and her courage, wisdom and maturity.

Also, several different people recorded this story and depending on which version you read you'll have a completely different picture. In one version, she willingly leaves with Hades because the Underworld represents adventure and the unknown and pretending that Demeter wasn't a controlling ass parent is insane. In another version, she isn't a barely legal woman, but a middle-aged woman who has the mannerisms of a naive girl and is dressed like one because (once again) in Demeter's quest to keep her daughter 'safe' she completely infantilizes her.

Also, in regards to the was she actually raped as in physically penetrated or not:

"Rape in Antiquity: Sexual Violence in the Greek and Roman Worlds is a generally worthwhile collection of essays about a non-existent topic. This statement is not meant to be facetious. Nor do I intend to suggest that acts that we would call “rape” did not occur in antiquity. Quite the opposite: ancient Greek and Roman literature presents us with many stories about rape and attempted rape of both women and men. When I say that rape did not exist in antiquity, what I mean is that there is no single word in either ancient Greek or Latin with the same semantic field as the modern English word “rape” (viol in French or Vergewaltigung in German). The Greeks, for instance, used words like u(/brij and a)timi/a and the Romans words like stuprum and vis to refer to acts that we call rape, but each of these words possessed a much wider semantic field than our word “rape.” And many Greek authors may describe what we would call rape as an act of violence, yet do not always call it an act of u(/brij or a)timi/a (e.g. Apollo’s rape of Creusa in Euripides’ Ion, the rape of a wife at Aristophanes Lys. 223-28 or the rapes of young women in Menander’s plays). True, ancient authors give us some information (not as much as we would like) about acts of rape and ancient attitudes toward sexual violence. But we should not assume they had a concept of rape similar to ours."

Thanks anon, I definitely am working on those things! It's consoling to read a story of a girl in a similar situation, except I am always ugly and not just at home kek. Sometimes the comic makes me cry because I know I will never be treated with the decency the males treat her. Kind of immature, I will admit. I only keep hoping I can be attractive eventually and overcome my deformities, so I can live a normal life and focus on what really matters.

No. 124888

Today's LO episode is a little better quality than usual. I enjoyed Hephaestus's characterization. I'm praying with every bone in my body that Rachel doesn't make Hephaestus another member of cInNaMoN rOll Persephone's harem and male worshippers. I'm surprised she added him at all tbh. I still remember Rachel adamantly refusing to include Hephaestus on LO, claiming that he's a "creepy incel" when asked why.

Some people speculate that Hephaestus's plot relevance is being ghost-written, and if so then thank fucking god. Rachel's already ruined so many characters with so much potential. Ares is literally just a BDSM joke that wants a piece of Persephone's ass now.

Like >>127640 said, series that used to be big (like Let's Play, I Love Yoo and some fad ones like Lalin's Curse) are now on hiatus and I believe they'll only come back for them to have some sloppy conclusion since they're only moneysinks for Webtoon. Villainess webtoons are all the rage now and with many other sites competing I bet Webtoon wants also their share of the cake.

Honestly I am tired of the generic Korean webtoon style as well as the generic love stories (whether Korean or Western).

I went to look it up on the app and I was really disappointed by how it actually looks like, it's just your run off the mill romance manhwa
I wish there was a surge in new comics with interesting styles, there were a bunch of promising candidates in last year's competition but they got lost in the sea of corny BL comics

Sorry for the dumb question anons and if I should have asked this in the art thread (and also if someone asked this before) but I'm genuinely curious about how many hours a day these artists work on their comics?

I mean that depends on the creator, how often they release new chapters, how long the chapters are, if they have assistants, complexity of the art etc. I'm pretty sure it's a fulltime job for a lot featured webtoon creators. Canvas creators often do it as a side-thing and you can tell because they tend to update less and with shorter chapters.

Anon, you're not obligated to put out chapter consistently. Go at your own pace.

It took me about six to eight hours every day when I was posting my story on Canvas (it was called Discover back then iirc), and I was going for weekly/bi-weekly updates with fully rendered backgrounds and shit. No surprise, I got burnt out really fucking quick. High effort artwork isn't going to mean anything if the author can't even manage to update past six chapters.

My advice is to cut as many corners as you can. Use assets and 3D backgrounds. Recycle certain panels and elements. Originals creators have whole teams of assistants and ghostwriters for them, but you're doing this all on your own. Lower your expectations for yourself.

Good luck anon, I hope you manage to get your comic out there.

Sage for semi-old but I just wanted to put to words why this is so awful, for any aspiring creators reading this thread and looking for mistakes not to make.

The first chapter is basically just an info-dump of random, insignificant information that doesn't have any impact on the flow of the story whatsoever. Info-dumps aren't bad on the own and it's understandable if the author is trying to flesh out the world and its characters, but the way random characters are introduced only for 1-2 panels of sceentime just makes it seem messy and overcrowded.

Secondly, the humor is random and quirky. It doesn't feel earned. It's supposed to be a serious drama with high stakes but here the characters are, making "cute" expressions and smarmy quips. If you want to use humor to make light of a dark situation that's fine, but do it in a way that makes sense in context and not have a random character pop in to bicker with the others without any prior establishment, then immediately leave afterwards and expect us to take this seriously.

Lastly, the art. It's extremely rushed and lazy-looking due to the author having to account for all the stripes and patterns on the characters' clothing. The character designs are fashionable and aesthetically pleasing but don't tell us anything about their personalities. The poses and expressions are so stiff and lifeless that the author feels the need to make their characters explicitly tell the readers exactly what's going on, pic related.

Her older version of the comic worked because it was only around 8 panels and got to the point. This new and improved version feels like meaningless fluff that's more tell than show. You can tell her only ability to write is as aesthetic quotes and random bouts of nostalgia, because it's all style over substance.

Theres not wrong with being a basic ass romance story, the important thing is that if you can pull it off well. She shouldve just stuck with the rape sublot, ive even argue the act of wrath is unnesessary due to how its handled. LO is rlly trying hard in making it look bigger that it rlly is

The specific ones in your screenshot are fairly different from one another.
First one is typical "OL with a single hobby isekais into fantasy medieval Europe and must introduce her hobby to this world", like all those stories it's slow and a bit boring.
Second one is okay so far, regression rather than isekai, protag returned to years before her murder and is trying to avoid dying again.
Third is pretty cute, it's one of those "my IRL family really sucks so I'll write a story centered around my self-insert having a cool, loving dad, true friends and cute love interests" webtoons. I like it so far but those stories usually reach hundreds of chapters with almost nothing happening, so it might get boring soon.

So overall they do have different premises, but all those isekai/regression/family wish fulfilment comics tend to be super slow and get worse as time passes. It's like they never want to end and stop making money, so they delay getting to the actual meat of the story for as long as possible. That's probably good for the platforms that license them though.

I haven't read it in a looong while. But the first couple chapters were pretty interesting and it was definitely a different kind of romance compared to the current webtoons at that time.

I'm not sure about if english webtoon has a different department from the korean webtoon, but korean webtoon seems to pic webtoons to promote pretty nonbiasedly. Except True Beauty, the art for that webtoon is so stiff and bland and I can't believe it got a drama.

they're all isekais with small adjustments lol

not saying that's a bad thing there's a lot of gold isekai originals on tapas that doesn't get enough attention, what I am saying is that there's no variety in genre, Tapas has only licensed isekai type webtoons. i wouldn't mind if the front page wasn't saturated with these all the time. The "non-original" section is barely present and constantly pushed off by "my maid is the reincarnation of my sexy teacher's horse" or something
unrelated-the fact that you had to pay for the rest of the comic (when you might not even know if the rest will retain the same quality) kinda rubs me the wrong way.

This Webtoon. This fucking webtoon right here. I. Can't. Stand.
The art style is typical Deviantart styled Walmart shoujo.
The main character is supposed to be a stereotypical racially ambiguous brown character yet they're too stupid to even know how to color darker skin correctly. They use cooler colors instead of warmer colors to draw them, so it ends up making the skin have a greenish tint and look like vomit.


Not to mention the artist SnailLords is a degenerate POS. I've been following them for some time now (since the early 2000's).

Has anyone read Flawless? I had to power through the first couple chapters cause of the feeling of the FL being a sorta mary sue. But I think the best part was the later chapters which is rare for most webtoons/manga. But it was really good how the webtoon touched on how FL felt about ML being "flawless" aka male mary sue and being perfect. I think it was really refreshing for a webtoon to be kinda meta. Really loved how it showed FL's insecurities. She is still sorta a mary sue, but I think I could overlook it. Of course there are still stuff in the webtoon that I didn't quite like and some plotholes, but overall I really enjoyed it.

This isn't an LO exclusive problem but something about how dialogue is written in a lot of popular Webtoons just rubs me the wrong way for some reason. It's like they write the dialogue for kids with bare minimum reading comprehension, then cram in swear words or slang to appeal to "adults" as well.

I don't like LO that much either but being pressured into having sex and giving up resisting doesn't mean it was consensual
Consent consists of a question and an answer. In this case there was no question, just Apollo entering Persephone's room at night without notice and forcing himself upon her.

Other than that yeah I agree that the characters are badly written and the dialogue feels pretty clunky. There's a bunch of storylines that lead nowhere and characters that seem interesting but ultimately do nothing

>>136886
I really hoped Minthe's character would go somewhere but she's so one-dimensional it's painful. She's just mean. Why is she mean? Just because.

I've been hopeful for Minthe's character because I really thought the story was going to head to some huge confrontational meeting/court type of scene where Zeus uses minor characters like Minthe and Artemis who would have a chance to bring up their dirt on Hades/Persephone (and for Artemis to confront Apollo/Persephone and have a moment to develop her character like picking between her family and friends). But Minthe being turned into a plant just drives home that there really aren't any consequences for anything in LO. I guess either Hera or Demeter will show up and make everything magically better or some confrontation between main characters will be cut off by Hades' dad coming back to wreck shit.

I wouldn't worry about quality. Drawing consistently to update your story and depicting scenarios/poses/items/etc that you normally wouldn't draw will improve your art exponentially. Plus, I think your story idea is funny and interesting! Something similar happened to me in elementary school, actually. Generally it's always a good idea to pursue projects you feel passionate about. Even if it doesn't work out exactly as you planned, you'll learn a lot along the way. Please keep drawing and telling stories. I believe in you Anon.

lmao she even drew Minthe and Persephone parodying that photo where Sophia Loren is side-eyeing Jayne Mansfield's boobs, picrel.

I'm probably only hate-reading LO at this point, but it keeps cracking me up. In the latest chapters Hades' nose keeps going back and forth between pinocchio-tier and conveniently attractive small one. Yeah, it looks different depending on angles but come the fuck on.

Minthe recently looks fucking awkward, imagine constantly having to write a character's actions in asterisks.

I never understood why more and more female characters carry on the whole revenge fantasy trope- sometimes I love it, like in the movie Carrie, but god, sometimes it’s so badly written.

He acts like he's their pimp or something, and I swear the characters for his new series were supposed to be teenagers but apparently he's making porn of them now and referring to them as his husbands and shit.

I find a lot of western webtoons to be trash. Instead, I read a lot from the Naver Webtoon app. There's a higher percentage of better webtoons in terms of art and storyline, but obviously there exist some trash ones as well. Here are some that I really enjoyed (only a few have translations, will link if there is one)

> Yes, My Boss!

I read this in Korean then English first since I have no means of buying cookies. It's about a manga artist who takes up a full-time position as a designer at an engineering firm (iirc) and her boss is a scary, quiet, introverted dude who keeps to himself. The caveat is that he loves manga, especially the ones she draws and they meet once again after he applies to be a manga assistant where their roles become flipped. I really enjoyed it: https://tapas.io/series/yesmyboss

> Homework of the Mind

The main character moves into a new neighbourhood which she chose as she wanted a quiet respite from the busy noise of life and life. What she doesn't realize is that the neighbourhood is a hub for (friendly) vampires – and that her crush from high school lives in the same area as a vampire. Life gets more interesting (and complicated) as she befriends these vampires. I didn't get to finish this because the Korean app forces you to one chapter only and the English sites haven't finished translating them.
https://manhuascan.com/manga-homework-of-the-mind.html

> End of a Relationship

A presequel to `Hell is other people`, a horror webtoon that turned into a drama (which I enjoyed enough). If you read HIOP, you get to see the beginning of the murderous crew and how a relationship gets ruined. Lots of blood, gore, etc.

> The Nine of Us (my translation that I prefer)/The Year We Turned 29 (unofficial translation)

A cute slice-of-life romance following the lives of three girl friends in their late 20's and the relationships/men they meet. This webtoon makes me want a friendship like them, enjoying the ups and downs together and moving past the hardships. I enjoy the art so much even though it's not super beautiful and intricate, but it is quite colourful and cute.
https://mangaowl.net/single/54783/the-year-we-turned-29

> End of the Century, Apple Academy (my rough translation)

It's soonkki's second webtoon about a girl who's short, boisterous, not studious, naive, but well-meaning and a boy who's tall, scary, smart, loner, but sensitive. They met as children since their parents were friends, though he always rejected her and opted to hang out alone. Now they're sixteen and go to the same school together, get made fun of their names (their names together refer to an old Korean comedy duo have) and it's their awkward story about their friendship (or lack of).
https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=178173

> Ugly Peoples

What would happen if God came to you and would grant you three wishes? The main character is an ugly man who has been treated poorly because of his poor looks, affecting all aspects of his personality and life. Meeting God, he wreaks havoc on all the world but bliss lasts only for so long.

> Some Guy

Two university students become neighbours in their apartment and have hilariously awkward interactions until they slowly get used to each other then to close friends. It starts off with dry Korean humour then moves onto something more serious, dealing with failed relationships and pending love. Unfortunately the series hasn't been touched since 2016 or 2017 and won't get updated ever.

I recently started reading The Way to Protect the Female Lead’s Older Brother. It's basically isekai where the FL gets reborn into a a family of edgelord villains from an adult themed book.

I fucking hate everything about Lore Olympus. I hate what people did to the original story and how they interpreted it. It is a story about the grief of a mother (Demeter) bc her daughter (Persephone) got kidnapped by her uncle. The mother then goes on a journey trying to get her daughter back but the gods Zeus (who is Persephones father) and Hades are conspiring against her, bc Hades wants to marry Persephone (They ofc do not ask Persephone about her opinion on this). This is a myth about the sacred bond between a mother and her daughter and not some perverted age gap fantasy. Persephone in the underworld goes on a hunger strike bc she obviously wants to go back to her mother and this is the only way she can kinda defend herself against Hades and the kidnapping, but Hades then tricks her into eating six pomegranate seeds, so she is forced to stay with him a certain amount of time every year. The whole interpretation just says a lot about the modern western culture. Literally every kidnapping of a child and the parents left helpless and devastated is a "modern real life interpretation" of the myth.

Actually, there's quite a few variations and interpretations of the Kidnapping of Persephone/Homeric hynm of Demeter, so The romantic interpretation of the taking of Persephone can be valid as a adaptation.
I would kill for an adaptation that flips the script and Casts Demeter in a good light as a chance of pace.

I think Hadestown has one of the more interesting depictions of the two and Punderworld is at least better then LO in pretty much every aspect so if you want a romantic tale I would much rather read that one

Other couples that could deserve to be adapted, since I think Persephone and Hades are just a tad over done :

Has anyone else read Young Blood? It was a slice-of-life romance about young adults but it’s been rewritten/rebooted to a more…. fantasy genre romance? (about a witch who moves to the human realm, so still more human-focused)

Feel kinda disappointed with the art change though. I get it’s a lot of work drawing, coloring, and writing a webtoon, but the new art just feels… sloppy? I always felt background art was more of the artist‘s strong suit rather than character art, but now both are feeling pretty weak now. One thing I will say is that the characters at least have more of a personality, which was a something the Young Blood version had trouble with.

Yeah art style has gotten way worse and nothing has changed except that magical realm shit and that they gave the generic pink haired mary sue mc the worst "quirky" personality possible. The generic character dynamics (broody emo guy falls in love with quirky pink haired girl) are still the same. Thanks, I hate it. Even Lore Olympus has a better story than this and it has almost the same characters and the mc body also gets shown off and sexualized in almost every panel even tho she isn't doing anything sexual. Thanks, I hate it.
I wish webtoon creators would make comics with better plot lines with different and more interesting characters.

Nah I get your complaint. Kind of puts me off how she draws every other female character, even the monster girls, basically the same way as you described. Same sexy faces and same sexy outfits aside from color scheme. Even the guys have the same generic handsome face.

I’m not even against attractive sameface casts, I’ve seen plenty that had more variety and personality than this. It just feels like this one is meant to appeal solely to people who follow sexy Insta influencers.

Anyone got webtoon recommendations with villainess heroines who are legitimately bitchy/evil/intimidating and fun to read about?

It’s fine if they get development and become “good” later on if they retain some of their personality. I’m just getting bored of villainess webtoons where it’s like “actually she was the good guy all along“ or “ bland heroine gets reincarnated in the body of a villainess” or “villainess gets her body taken over by a nicer heroine and now everybody loves her”

"The way to protect the female lead's older brother" is probably my favorite villainess manga. Beautiful art, has managed to remain interesting, and I actually love how the female lead has developed. Without giving you any spoilers, this mc transmigrates into a novel in a pretty shitty situation and you can actually feel the danger.

Also try "I want to be you, just for a day". Medea is a badass and she hasn't stopped being intimidating after 77 chapters.

"I tamed a tyrant and ran away" has a female protagonist that while not exactly a villain, has a very specific goal that can make her be quite ruthless.

And finally "Untouchable lady". Not a villainess story but a "revenge" one. Very satisfying seeing the female mc giving hell to the people that wronged her.

And those are the only ones I can think of. Hopefully you will enjoy some of it.

And even on the first and only chapter of season two the MC keeps on being less proactive than an amebae.
The LI just falls head over heels for her during season one and does things that seemed ooc for a serial killer… To me it's mostly not worth it altho I am still curious about why MCs father did what he did, and I expected answers from season two.

not that anon, but i personally wouldn't. though that's just my dislike of stories where the love interest will dote excessively on the protagonist out of nowhere. i only read until chapter 13 or so, but no explanation was even given as to why he fell for her. no natural, gradual relationship development, just straight into the fluff after the initial misunderstanding is cleared. just makes me think that mc was made for self-inserting purposes only as the two mains lacks personality outside of their couple dynamic. i'll reiterate that fluff isn't my cup of tea, but if you're looking for that and a possessive love interest, then don't let me discourage you.

I do feel that Margot and Rami weren't really punished enough for their actions. Margot straight up kills a kid because she thirsted over Bruno too hard and Rami bashes Jax's brains in. The park was supposed to punish Rami for that but we never see it so it doesn't matter.

Reminds me of My Dragon Girlfriend where one out of the two main lesbian couples is also a troon.

I feel like they’re less likely to be abandoned at that point (though the risk of being abandoned is still disappointingly high) and you can get a feel for if it’s updated often enough to be worth following after initially reading it. Also by that point the story has usually started getting somewhere and you have gotten to know the characters. Picrel- a nicely drawn 25 page webcomic I followed against my better judgement that the author has evaporated from ever since.

This gets a little fuzzier for Webtoons(TM) because they’ll often have several pages worth of content on one “chapter.”

The worst feeling though is reading a few hundred pages of webcomic and at the end having no desire to follow it, either because the story or characters are badly written. That’s more unusual though.

I like Makeup Remover, fun characters, interesting story and pretty art.
Swimming Lessons for a Mermaid is a super cute romance webtoon, pure fluff with the healthiest relationship I've seen in a webtoon.
Odd Girl Out and Your Smile is a Trap for a slice of life feel-good romance.
Remarried Empress is a nice court romance drama. Similar to it is Men of The Harem, bit average but still fun to read as it is more of a comedy. Your Throne has some MF romance but is more of a serious dramatic story, beautiful art though.

Wow, there is so much garbage in this thread. Let me talk about something that is actually good. Annarasumanara, was the first manhwa and web toon I ever read and is still the best one I've ever read.

Tinfoil but a few weeks ago I noticed that LO had been briefly knocked out of the #1 slot but I didn’t screenshot :/ I’m sure they bumped it back to the number one slot since it’s getting a Netflix adaptation and I’m sure that their top webcomics are just as organic as the top Netflix series… I wonder what the real metrics are for the American Webtoons

Just copy the both main characters and their dynamic from Twilight/50 shades of grey based on generic tropes (pink innocent heroine & older dominant man) and then put them in any kind of fantasy setting that you want + have an aesthetic art style that looks interesting enough but is sloppy and lazy enough to copy and paste.

Are you joking? Yeah technically Hellenism is still (barely) alive but it's practiced by a very small subset of the population and is nowhere near as active and organized as even the random papier-mache religion of neo-paganism. Hellenism was straight up banned in Greece itself and wasn't officially recognized again until 2017. There are maybe 2,000 hardcore followers in the entirety of Greece (population ~10.7 mil). Does it also upset you when people make artistic media using Nordic, Egyptian, Eastern European, Indian, African and Middle Eastern folklore? There will always be some psychotic fringe worshippers who find it disrespectful, but even people who do believe in those pantheons are typically sane enough not to get their panties in a bunch when a comic artist thinks they have a cool "aesthetic." The vast majority of folklore and mythology is literally fanfiction that's been appropriated and passed between various cultures over centuries in the first place.

if you want female power fantasy, have you tried "your throne"? it isn't without its faults, but i liked the main female lead better than the one in princess' jewels. she isn't afraid to kill a bitch either. i liked that the author doesn't go the common route of pitting two females against each other and have one of them just be a one-dimensional villain that gets easily taken down. the author focuses on the character growth of both female leads and they actually have each other's backs. they are my guilty ship.

Manta Comics has been aggressively advertising something called Under the Oak Tree at me for days. I caved, I'm hooked, but they tried to hid it behind a paywall.

… but I found the whole thing for free elsewhere online. I dont think Manta Comics was prepared for people (me) who have bad romance manga as a guilty pleasure.

I've only started it but the basic plot is that there is a princess who has been deemed low value because she has a stutter. She is forced to marry a knight, and he disappears for 3 years after their wedding night, and it turns out the knight has saved an entire continent by slaying a dragon. Now he has returned to his wife and he is determined to overcome the difficulties of being a PTSD riddled dragon slayer in love with a woman traumatized from years of abuse

I eat this kind of crap up and pretend I'm enjoying it ironically. I'm the type of person who knows that Twilight is cringe but still loves it anyway, if you're like me you're going to fucking love this. Hoping I can get a few people to start sperging over this so I dont have to sperg alone
