How to Make Proper Speech Balloons

Hey, guys! I saw something useful online and, since there may be people visiting the site who want to make comics themselves, decided to post it here.

It’s a tutorial for how to organize text properly in speech balloons by Nate Piekos, who, among other things, is a professional comic book letterer and the man behind Blambot, the most useful site for comic fonts. I’ve always done these as sort of an unwritten rule myself, but I think it’s good to have an image that explains how to stack text in a speech balloon, since most people don’t seem to get it and end up doing awful-looking balloons.

Next up, I should actually make a tutorial on how to make speech balloons…
