The first thing you need to have to meet this viral challenge is skill with drawing programs, or just drawing. The Toon Me Challenge consists of giving free rein to our creativity, in fact, there are those who are not good at drawing, but even so they wanted to join the viral challenge.
Throughout the Instagram feed, when searching for the ToonMeChallenge hashtag, there are true works of art and that elicit that "he althy envy" feeling, as when we look at our result we feel like a child learning to hold a pencil.
To make this challenge viral we must follow these steps:
- We choose a photograph of ourselves, from the Google Photos gallery, for example.
- The we cut in half with the mobile editor (Google Photos also allows you to edit photos).
- We keep that cut.
- We repeat the cut with the original image, and we remove the opposite side.
- We have two halves saved.
- We reconstruct one of the 2 removed halves in drawing form, hence the "Toon".
- To create the drawing effect of half the photo, we can use the app "Comica" (for Android), or the app "Clip2Comic" (for iOS).
- Once inside the app, we search the gallery, we choose the half that we want to convert to drawing.
- We save the result.
- We open Instagram Layout.
- Select the cropped half and edited half as drawing.
- We select the collage that we like best, in this case, the collage that allows us to join the two halves.
- We set and save.
- We can put a margin line, or not. We have decided to put a line to create the division, but this depends on the taste of each one.
- We upload to Instagram as normal.
We take this opportunity to point out that in the images where animals appear, many more likes are obtained and we must take advantage before Instagram removes the likes from its social network.
In the market there are tools that have become popular among artists and fans of digital drawing, such as the iPad, in any of its variants. But the Toon Me Challenge can not only be done like this, as there are those who have used other computer programs,such as Photoshop.
The idea is to participate in the fashion challenge, since that helps our Instagram profile have greater visibility. It is one of the keys that we gave if we want to earn money with our Instagram profile.
One way or another, we must not forget to use the ToonMeChallenge to participate in the new viral challenge. In addition, we can take advantage of this challenge to publicize our artistic skills or propose to improve on the subject of digital drawing by following the dozens of tutorials on YouTube.
