someting for a friend
i just want to say, for people reblogging this, that this is called the “rule of thirds” and the tips i wrote here by no means are things that you HAVE to do! these are just tips i use for myself, i kind of made up the bubble rule and i dont even know if im using the rule right haha so there theres that! i just like to use it so i know my bubbles have a place to go
examples of me using rule of thirds to separate elements in “Rachael and Penny”
Making note of this. I really need to work on my word-bubble placement.
Yeah one of the big reasons I don’t do a lot of comics is because I get caught up in the technical aspects of it and realize I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING ABORT ABORT and this is one of those things so cool thanks yay.
I’m gonna go ahead and find that comic book gift I made in December and see how many of these amateur mistakes I’ve done yes.
This! This is useful information!
Disobey #6 if obeying it means breaking any of the other rules (sometimes you gotta when lettering somebody else’s composition).
My friend Joe Edens (responsible for the webcomic Rabbid Force) asked me how I make my word balloons non-elliptical, so I threw this tutorial together for him. It uses Photoshop, but you can do this in Illustrator and it probably applies to other art programs similarly.
In other news, the campaign for the second episode of my webcomic, The Super-Gay Adventures of Ross Boston, is live on Indiegogo. Donations are appreciated, but so is sharing the link wherever. Thank you!
Aaaah! Thank you for this! I’m just about to letter a big project and always wondered how to do this. <3
Hunted this down after mentioning it to @akitron. Changed the way I do ballooning for the better (to put it mildly). I still screw up a lot, but yeah, this tutorial is why I quit having talking shoulders and shit
(I don’t do hand lettering because 1. I am terrible at it and 2. I edit dialogue over and over and over)
