Framing Word Balloons and Captions for Comics and Graphic Novels

Speech Balloons That Create Panelitis

Don't give your characters Panelitis.

Panelitis occurs when you have to squeeze your characters to fit into the panel
or under the word balloon or caption.

You either bend them or distort them.

Also don't cut off their head or hat.

When drawing just automatically leave the upper third of the panel open for balloons and captions.

Be careful. Don't leave a wide open space. Draw in the space, but don't put critical information there.
