Hullo, I'm having some problems deciding on what sort of style I should use for the normal characters speech bubbles. Here's the three sort of styles I was thinking of-

With the normal inked one, I like the slight wobbliness to it but I have a problem judging the size of speech bubbles according to font size. With the other two, they'd be easier to resize depending on the text but they look “colder” to me, if that makes sense.

Any opinions on these? I'm stumped deciding on one.

Two looks the nicest, one is alright.
Just don't go with three. I can't tell who's talking in three.

I dig #1 it looks organic but to say the truth I preffer #2 even when it was done with the circle tooll you manage to add something more to it and I like that combination. The transparent balloon (#3) I think looks too tacky for speech balloons but I think it works better on narrative captions or thought balloons, IMHO. You have a nice style and good art-skills example 1 and 2 should work fine with your comic.

I like #1 personally, but #2 would probably be best when thinking in terms of what would be easiest on you.

Okay, two it is then. I'll look into turning three into thought bubbles as a test. Thanks guys!
