Speech Bub­ble Styling

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight 15 Manga Secrets -

Speech bub­bles in manga are a lot more or­ganic than in other types of comics. They’re al­most al­ways hand drawn, slightly ir­reg­u­lar in shape. Joined speech bub­bles are com­bined rather than linked by a thin line. When one char­ac­ter talks over an­other, it’s de­picted lit­er­ally, with each speech bub­ble over­lap­ping. While shout­ing is de­picted with a more con­ven­tional spiky out­line, thought bub­bles aren’t drawn as clouds; more of­ten they’re sur­rounded by a haze, ei­ther drawn or made out of screen tone.
