It used to be the case that if you wanted to make your own comics, you would either have to be a good artist or have someone else draw them for you. That’s not the case anymore, thanks to the many different website on the Internet that allow you to easily and quickly create your own custom comic strips to share with your family, friends and co-workers.
If you are one of those people who considers themselves funny, but you cannot draw for your life, thanks to technology, you can fulfill your ambitions of making funny comics without a problem. There are tons of sites out there now at which you can make your own, customized comic strips, and with the variety that all of them offer – from superheroes to stick figures – you will be able to create a personal comic to get your point across perfectly.
Sometimes you have a joke or a story that you want to tell, and you want to mix it up – try something new. Why not tell the joke or story in the form of a colorful and amusing comic strip? Here are some of the best site on the Internet that will allow even the worst of artists to make personalize comics to express themselves.
This is easily one of the most popular comic sites around. It is so popular because not only do the comics look great, but they are also very easy to create. There are options that give you enough of a range where both children and adults will be able to use the site to make comics that are relevant to them. It is also increasingly popular because it is available in many languages and the site is always looking to ad new ones as well to their options.
Because it is so easy to use and so simple in nature, you might find it limiting if you are trying to get some more abstract idea across, and the colors that are offered are also fairly limited, especially for the background of your pictures.
is easy enough for children to use, but there are enough options for adults to get a message across, too. Users can choose from 25 characters to fill a two-, three-, or four-paneled comic strip. Currently, the site supports typing in seven different languages. There are plans to add Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters in the future.
The best part about this site is that there are three comic-making sections. One is for having fun, one is for children and educational purposes, and the third is for business needs. It is very easy to use as well, all you do is drag and drop into the comic what you want to see there. It is one of the most advanced sites as far as customization is concerned, and there are literally endless choices for tweaking your comic and making it come out exactly the way you envisioned it.
If there is a company that knows something about comics, then I am pretty sure that this company is marvel. It’s no surprise that its comic creation site is great as well, even though it’s simplistic. One thing that is great is that there are tons of different panels you can use, so you are not constricted to the usual and boring boxes that most comics use. The characters you can choose from, of course, are all of the famous Marvel heroes and villains, including the Incredible Hulk and Wolverine. Also, you can do fairly interested and in-depth comics at this site, since it offers you the option of going as long as 22 pages. If you like making comics with these famed Marvel heroes, you’ll love it, but if you want to do something more original, then this is not the site you are looking for – go elsewhere.
This is probably one of the best sites if you are looking for both versatility and ease of use. It allows you to be creative and really make the comic original, but it is also very user friendly as well. There is a huge library of images and characters that you can use, and the tools are very simple to implement and navigate. There are two tools of significance at ToonDoo, the TraitR tool, which helps you to customize your characters, and the DoodlR tool, which allows you to paint freely within the comic.
5) Strip Generator
There’s no room really at this site to work on your own style, but the characters that are offered are great to jot down some quick office humor and share it with your coworkers. One thing that is great about the site is that you are able to adjust the frames and make them longer and wider if you need to.
Chogger is great because it lets you draw images from scratch if you do not want to use the images that are already available on the site. Another great feature you get with the site is that it allows you to connect your webcam and capture pictures that you can use in your comic strips. The frames at Chogger can also be customized to suit your needs very easily.
This is one of the more creative sites. At Pikistrips, you take a photo of yourself or other people and then turn these photos into comic strips. Just upload the pictures and then you can mess around with them and decorate the pictures. You can add different hairstyle, facial hair, scars, hats, and other stuff to your pictures, and of course, text bubbles for dialogue.
8) Witty Comics
This is a simple comic that is most often used by people who are more interested in the dialogue than the actual pictures. The comics are pre-drawn scenes that are fairly simple and to the point, it is up to you to put some interesting commentary in there to spice them up. This is perfect for writers that want to practice their dialogue and story telling – letting the words speak more than the images.
9) Artisan Cam
Artisan Cam is a very interest site that has a lot of different art-related online activities, and it’s a great site for teachers to use in order to get creative with their students. The comic maker on the site is excellent and allows you to build short and sweet, six-frame comics with an easy-to-use drag and drop interface.
10) Write Comics
Write Comics is another simple to use and fun online comic. The process is very logical and simple to follow – first select a background, then choose characters, and then complete the story with speech bubbles. It’s biggest shortcoming is that the only way you can save your work is by copying it to your computer – it does not have its own online database where you can save your work and share it with friends instantaneously.
