In the long and time consuming process of lettering a comic, I am thankful that computers are a thing. I am even more grateful that Adobe Illustrator is also a thing. Check out one of my favorite video tutorials!
This method uses illustrator’s appearance menu! There are so many nuances to digital programs, I love learning new ways to use them. Notice if you click on other speech bubble-ing tutorials on Youtube, they all go about it in different ways! Once you learn the basic way to use a tool, from there you can go nuts with creativity and use that tool any way you want!
Do it one way or another, I’m just glad I don’t have to do it by hand. Now that would be a total nightmare!
