Full Answer

The traditional method for creating a comic involves using physical media, such as paper and pens, to draw out the characters and scenes. Specialty sites, such as JerrysArtarama.com, sell special paper and other tools that allow you to create panels as they appear in other comics. In contrast to this, ToonDoo.com and Pixton.com features tools for drawing and organizing pages digitally. These sites also feature options for saving or printing the final comics.

Another method for creating comics is to use a digital design program, such as Adobe Photoshop, to draw panels and characters in any shape or style and publish them on a site rather than physically. These types of comics are commonly known as Webcomics, and are not subject to the same limitations as traditional comics. Many Webcomic authors self publish on personal sites or blogs, with some incorporating other aspects of digital art or Web design into the comic. It is also possible to hand draw a comic using physical media, scan it digitally and then publish it on a site.
