Hello, I'm happy to show you how to create custom characters for your comics!

Start by choosing a background for your slide and then click into the Characters tab, and click Add Character.

Once you've clicked Add Character, you should see a selection of premade characters as well as a button that says "custom."

Click "custom" to create a custom character.

The first step in creating your custom character is to choose the age and body type of your character.

Your custom character will look like they're in a coloring book before you customize them, with no skin tone or hair color selected.

Time to choose an outfit, I chose this one for my character! The outfit shown is a black and white striped t-shirt with a pink cardigan and black pants.

Once your character is dressed, it's time to choose the shades of their skin and hair.

Now we get to choose the hairstyle!
