Easy Comic Lettering & Word Balloon Layout: Comic Life Tutorial


We’ve been talking recently about the importance of lettering when making your own comics. In my two posts Comic Balloons & Clarity and The Comic Lettering Spell the discussion in the comments turned toward discussing our own processes.

Personally, I use a program called Comic Life.

A lot of you asked to see how I use Comic Life to letter my comic, The Dreamer. So while the topic is still fresh, I recorded my lettering process on the most recent page of my story.

In This Tutorial I Will Show You:

  • how to import and export between Photoshop and Comic Life so the process is seamless.
  • how to create and use Styles to easily format all your balloons in one time-saving click.
  • why lettering your comic early will help you make better, stronger comic layouts.

Read on to learn how I use this simple program with professional results…
