Hand-drawn balloons in photoshop by bigbigtruck Hand-drawn balloons in photoshop by bigbigtruck
I don't like using ovals or vector tools to make balloons in my comics, but it's also super hard for me to draw the oval smoothly AND the right shape on one pass, so here's what I do. Hope this helps somebody!

Interesting!  Possibly a silly question, but how do you draw the tails?

about the same as the balloons - just one quick stroke in Photoshop, then another!  Sometimes if i can't get the second stroke right I'll copy and paste the first on a new layer an then tweak as needed.

Man, this will be so helpful for me! I've just been drawing them on the page because I'm not that skilled in Photoshop, but I will definitely be using this! THanks!

You've no idea just how helpful this is to us. Next to panelling, of course, just arranging the speech bubbles and drawing them properly is the biggest struggle I have in making comics. And I don't make comics as often as I'd like to. Hopefully with practice I'll get on that!!
