Opinion about this speech bubble?
This is an artwork I ve done for Inktober day 14,ARMOR.
Which speech bubble do you thinks sits better and why?
@Georgios-Christopoulos i like the 2nd better because it enhances the composition more

I'd say I like the 1st one more as it gives more space to displaying the fire (?) blast

I think that it depends on what comes after this page. If this is a comic and the next panel is on the next page, then the first one might be a better fit, due to its long shape. If the next panel is underneath, then the taller shape might help a reader's eyes travel downward. If this is neither of those cases, then I think that I agree with Nyrrel Cadiz on this one. The second one feels like it has better eye flow.

The first has my vote.
Going by pure aesthetic I’d say the second because of the composition as a whole looks better. However the first reads a lot better. And as the image looks like a panel in a comic I personally would rank readability before form.
@Niels thanks for your comment mate!!

@Georgios-Christopoulos i think the first box breaks up the line and distracts me. The second seems to fit better and takes nothing away from the image,

@Georgios-Christopoulos I like the second one becomes I find there's too much empty space in the first that the second covers up.

@Georgios-Christopoulos I agree that I like the composition of the second one better. As for readability, I think the line breaks do affect how people read it but it this case it just seems like the "pauses" make it more dramatic. So I don't feel like it takes away from the meaning. It just forces the reader to kind of feel that "slow-mo" feeling in the middle of the action scene which I think is the point
