In this drawing lesson, I will show you how to draw bubble letters using a simple and easy technique. Creating cute bubble letters for your comic strip can be quite rewarding. It is even more rewarding if you are able to convert your work into a new workable font.
Of course, some people will always prefer to write everything by hand while creating a comic strip, but building a font from your own handwriting will give a result that is personalized and easy to handle while you are working.
First, you might want to use a font that is already available to create your own. The goal is not to copy this font, but only to use it as a guideline to help you.
When you are ready, just draw a nice round shape on the left part of your letter (in this case, the "A"). Don't hesitate to play with this shape until you are 100% satisfied with the result.
If your goal is to create a font that looks professional and clean, try to create the other half exactly like the first one. If you just want to create something original and don't really mind about producing a symmetric shape, just use your imagination and draw something cute!
Once the outline of your letter is finished, just trace over the outline and create a polished version of your letter. You can also add colors to make the whole thing more enjoyable to watch!
Finally, in this example, I have added a gradient fill effect to my letter and I have drawn a few shadows on it to make it more shiny and soft. Creating your own font is a very fun exercise and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do! Good luck!
