Webcomics are the alternative to animating. They are mangas which are posted via internet. Some of the webcomics seen on DeviantArt are based off of other animes/cartoons. (Ex. Memories by Reenigirl is based off Inuyasha and contains all of its storyline and characters.)

A well known webcomic made in the fanime community is L.O.D, created by Zayashuku.
