i like this page a lot.
except the final panel here has something i always do and never seem to get any better at avoiding, which is having the character speaking first on the left side of the panel. i think i've talked about this before but maybe that was on the Shadoweyes site... anyway, it's a tough thing because sometimes i forget, but most of the time it's hard because sometimes like this conversation here, it works up through the whole scene, the balloons flowing nicely and being on the same side of the panel as their respective speaker, but then comes a point in the conversation where the characters are still positioned on the same sides but the way the conversation flows doesn't match up. so it's either somehow swivel the camera (which is the part i usually forget until i get to the lettering stage), or write the conversation differently which doesn't always work because it can seem too artificially back-and-forth, or just say the hell with it and do awkward panels like the last one here where the balloon tails point "through" each character.
any professional letterers reading this? i wonder what they do when faced with panels like this.
