Been kicking this around some since I discovered/experimented with it for my own uses. As usual I thought I would share it with my watchers (And anyone else who stumbles across it! :D

I do highly recommend you familiarize yourself with my other speech bubble tutorials as this tutorial does not cover the basics about convert point tools, paths and other beginning level knowledge points.

PT 1 Can be found here: (PT's I and II use a different basic method than three, but have the points not covered in III and IV)



PT two can be found here:



PT III Can be found here: This is an altogether different method of creating speech bubbles.



I do hope this tutorial helps you! Feedback, comments and questions are welcome and appreciated!

"Ding"! Light goes on! Excellent tutorials. Any ideas on making speech bubbles to indicate whispering or something said under your breath?

Also, although I'm not a big fan of them, any suggestions on thought bubbles?

you can use the opacity slider to make the bubbles a bit more see through (either through the fill tool box or by making the layer less opaque).  you can also use a lighter font color and small font sizes as well.... I've seen both methods used effectively.  You can also stroke the edges with a lighter color than black...

For thought bubbles you can use a combination of the elipse path tool and create concentric circles which overlap and then fill it, or you can use the freeform pen tool to make free flowing edges and fill that.

Any other questions please let me know!

Glad you found the tutorial useful!

I do warn you these are all for photoshop, so I'm not sure whether they will translate well to GIMP or other alternate art programs.

GIMP does work a lot like Photoshop does, so usually it's easy to find a similar function. Of course there are still vast differences and sometimes it won't have the same function or anything, but usually these tutorials can give me a basic idea of how to go about something and the rest is trial-and-error-and-don't-throw-the-laptop-at-the-wall.

If I ever get my super-art-gaming-desktop-computer going though, I'm getting Photoshop.
