Comic Lettering Tutorial by wyldflowa Comic Lettering Tutorial by wyldflowa
EDIT - Oh gods I made a fatal mistake having my arrows point to the wrong parts of the text box. What is wrong with me today? I have a serious case of the derps.


I just made this quick after reading a few comics where the lettering wasn't all that tight. I suppose most people don't notice this kind of thing... but I notice when text in bubbles doesn't have a nice shape.

Having a look around I haven't seen many tutorials on the subject, and the ones that do aren't very thorough... So here you go, the methods and rules I use when I put words in speech bubbles. It's not the only way, but in my opinion, it yields nice results. :)


Goddam I wish I had time to draw my own comics... Soon guys, soon. ;_;



If you want some Hipster Ipsum go here to generate your own - [link]

Very helpful. A lot of that didn't even occur to me, especially the changing certain sizes of some of the text.

Nice thank you.
Are you still drawing rainbow carousel??
I'm curious because I haven't been checking as I usually do but this is helpful as I draw comics now. X3
Do you hand draw your bubbles?
