Making Word Balloons With Photoshop

A few of you folks have asked me how I make word balloons using Photoshop, so as I was doing final edits on THE FEW, I flipped on the camera and recorded the process hoping that a brilliant tutorial would magically happen! Unfortunately, all that happened was me recording myself babbling aimlessly as I try to string two words together that make some kind of sense. I even called something a “shape maker” which I don’t think is an official Adobe term… for anything. So don’t think of this video as a tutorial. Think of it as spending a couple of minutes looking over Dennis’s shoulder while he works.

Making Stuff Up

THE FEW Comic Book Series exists in its own unique little universe… and what does that universe look like? Who knows? It’s being created from scratch one day at a time.

In a perfect comic book creators world, there would be plenty of time to design all the different elements that go into a story, but in reality there is only a mountain of artwork to render and little time to do it. 

Here is a panel that called for a couple of space motorcycles and my quick roughs to figure out what they might look like.
