Art (sorta) question..

Postby Shadowydreamer on Tue Dec 16, 2003 8:44 pm

So in an upcoming comic I have in mind, it's going to be a large group all thinking the same thing. (They're stuffed animals, they can't talk! ^_^ ) .. I was wondering.. How would I go about depicting that without it being a giant mess?

You know how a thought balloon is drawn as a cloud shape with a trail of bubbles leading from thinker to thought...?

Your situation can be best handled by a single cloud with several trails of bubbles -- each leading from a separate thinker to the same thought.

That was what I was thinking, but I was also thinking it would be kind of messy and bubbles would go over characters..

I think this is proof I'm not a real comic artist. *grin*
