7+ Speech Bubble Brushes

If you have a web comic that spans several art-intense volumes or if you just do gag-a-day memes to share online for fun, you’ll find it’s difficult to escape the speech bubble. Since the traditional days of comic making, these bubbles would contain the words a character says or thinks, and would include little indicators of which character is saying it. They would even change shape when a character screams, ponders, growls, or if it is uttered by a robot, for example.

Essential but time-consuming, and difficult to make consistent. These Photoshop Brushes in the shape of a variety of speech bubbles and visual speech tags will do the job for you.

How to Make Sure Speech Bubbles Don’t Ruin Your Comic

The Photoshop painters’ community seems obsessed with making your job as an artist easier, faster, more fun, and with a mind-boggling array of options. This is why you can find everything from Bubble Brushes to Watercolor Brushes and now even speech bubble brushes to take the tediousness out of drawing a shape around everything your characters think or say.

But you can’t just use the first speech bubble brush on offer.

Unless you haven’t noticed, the speech bubble is a part of your art. Its shape, form, color and size will affect the overall look of your page. Most of us can recall a graphic novel with high-end art that only got ruined by some bland, inflexible speech tag.

Don’t let that happen to you.

Some examples of good bubble-art relationships:

For a last-ditch scheme, some artists go for the Cyanide & Happiness tactic of merely typing the text on the background and using a simple brush stroke for the tail. But not every comic is Cyanide & Happiness, nor should they be.

From this amazing range of brushes, you should be able to find a design that fits just about any style and theme for you.

Notes on How to Use Speech Bubble Brushes

A lot of these speech bubbles are art pieces in themselves. And like Wave Brushes, they can be applied in more ways than their intended use. We’ve seen designs like these effectively used on other graphic projects aside from comics:

For all these projects and more, download these speech bubbles as free ABR files (Photoshop brush files) that can also be imported into Corel Painter if you have version 2016 and up.

Note: For commercial, tangible products, some licensing restrictions may apply (be sure to check product specs or contact the producer). For web comics and the like that are uploaded for free, other digital artists usually only ask that you give them the credit.
