Several people were asking how I made the text bubbles in Alterity. This is the method I use. I hope it's helpful!

I know this is a bit old, but I was just wondering. I'm doing my comic with traditional mediums, and my handwriting isn't the easiest to read. Should I just do the artwork and then do the speech bubbles in PS or should I try to make a space for them?

Um, it might be best to experiment and see what works best! Personally, I have a HUGE problem with not leaving enough space for my dialogue, so I always write out the dialogue and position it when I'm first starting my storyboarding. If you're worried, maybe you could jot down the dialogue in your own handwriting to make sure it fits, and then redo it in PS later?

Okay, thanks for replying. This is my first comic I've done with dialogue, so I'm a little nervous, but I'll see what works

For this tutorial, I used Letter-O-Matic: www.blambot.com/font_letteroma…

Oh my god, thank you! I've been wondering how to do this for a long time! I have trouble using shapes in Photoshop 0_0

Photoshop's shape vector tools are REALLY annoying, yeah. They baffled me for ages.

This is long overdue, but thank you for this tutorial! Helps me so much when I do the dialogues!

Also, your Alterity series is AMAZING.
