FREE FONTS FOR COMIC SOUND EFFECTS AND TITLES

Designed to take advantage of some of the features of MANGA STUDIO and avoid some of the limitations of that program ( described on this page... [link] ), they will also work with other programs (like any font would).

The example picture was produced in Manga Studio and I used some particular techniques ( other tools such as adobe illustrator have their own ways of achieving similar effects)
1) The open ( outline) letters in the picture ( SPLAT!) are produced using the Text Outline feature in Manga Studio "character Settings" palette.
2) The transparent lettering style ( POW !) is produced by converting the text layer to a raster layer and then clicking "create selection" from the short menu on the layer in the layer palette.... with it selected I go to Edit>outline selection and "draw on the edge line" with the fill colour ( white) and "draw outside" and "draw inside" the line with black. Actually I have all this on an Action button so it is all done simply with one click... I just have not yet found a good way to share Manga Studio actions

Manga studio does not easily allow you to move individual letters around ... so to make it easier to introduce more randomly oriented and placed letters the Capital letters of the the first two fonts have mixed up placing and orientation . If thats not enough for you then you have to convert to a raster layer and then selec around individual letters and move them.

The SHARP_SOUND font is italic, and you can make in even more Italic by clicking the Italic box in the character palette. The CAPITALS for this font are not only bold but also very italic..... Sharp sounds are always very slanted !!

The download button at the top right of this page will download a zip file with the three fonts. I am happy for them to be used for free.... Just please leave a comment/link on this page to places that you use them.
