Some people say my font that I use in comics is hard to read.
Others don't.

Should I pick a new font?

In my opinion, it isn't hard to read but...

Yeah, make them anti-aliased, so that the writing is smooth.
People are just being picky, because I find it fine to read. xD

How do I make it anti-aliased? xD

I find them fine to read but they're not anti-aliased, so maybe that might help?

Also, people are a bitch even if it's easy to read, if it's not in all-caps. I use smackattack (which is free), personally.

it is though?
I think. ... I use paint so it could be harder?


IMO all caps is only good for if the character is actually yelling and things like that.
And so I use it for that effect.
Otherwise, it seems a bit messy.

Proffessional cartoonists use it because you don't get confusions like 1 l I (all three different things). In general caps are easy to distinguish from one another even if they're stylized. And going prosey only to internet shout...I'd suggest italics and an exclamation point, if it was /really/ over the top XD " . Internet shouting isn't quite impressive to readers. Excluding sound effects, bluh.

I really cannot suggest anything. :shrug: I think that both the font size and the style are readable to me. But I guess it comes the term in eye sight?

But, if this still bothers some people, just keep the font style but change to one size up or two (what font size are you using? 12? 14?)

Ahh. o:

14 generally, but it depends on how much room I have.
If I have less room, I make it smaller, like here: [link]

14 should be fine. Maybe is the DA fullview page preview size that kind of changed the original size a little?

I don't think that would be it since it doesn't really affect much on the comic (though it does if the comic page was enormously huge in the original resolution).

Well, I try not to make them much wider than that, longer maybe.
I would like there ot be minimal scrolling, it makes the comic easier to follow..
