With Gimp comes a plugin Resynthesize together with a Python script Heal Selection. On Linux the plugin is contained in the package gimp-plugin-registry. After selecting an area with the select tool: We can "heal" this selection from "Filters > Enhance > Heal selection...". Here I made a random healing with 10 pixels from the surrounding:
I would approach this in a similar way to horatio, but I would probably keep the original image in tact as much as possible (assuming you want to preserve it). I'd create a similar texture to the paper like so: It's just a noise texture against a subtle gradient with some distortions via a horizontal and vertical scale. You'll notice some color ...
Because you are editing out text (e.g. radically altering the original), one way to do this is to cheat: Edit the image so that the yellowed paper is no longer yellowed. Blank out to your heart's content, then overlay a new all-over fake yellowing paper effect. This will be uniform.
If you are feeling adventurous you can implement the Texture-Synthesis algorithm described here it fills pixels with those which have a similar neighborhood creating an almost seamless extension of a texture or filling in holes, here are some examples Gimp supports scripting, so you could write a plugin for this (I planned to do it myself a while ago but ...
The copy and paste will give best results without ruining the texture and color of that particular balloon. What I generally do is start fairly small copy paste a few times, then merge the layers together (does Seashore have layers?) but stop just before the original. Then you have a larger sample to continue working with. Before you continue copying and ...
Take a pencil. Take a notebook. Start sketching. Once you are comfortable with that, try telling a story through your images. Once you are comfortable with that, then google specific techniques for making comics. But the two basic, fundamental things you have to learn is how to express a situation and a story through images.
I think you can use a comic font, which is appropriate for a comic, but still improve the legibility by changing other aspects of your typography: Use a font that uses both upper and lowercase for the longer explanations (all caps might be fine for titles Give the texts more "breathing room", separate them more from the container edges Be careful with your ...
Choosing a typeface is about pairing the elements in your design together. Designing an invite for a high-fashion event? Consider a Didone. Working on a menu for a BBQ Joint? Consider some vernacular retro wood type. Working on a thesis? A sturdy serif text face is probably a safe bet. The key is that you're pairing the typeface with the design moreso than ...
That font definitely feels unprofessional to me. If you want to keep with the form and feeling but add readability & professionalism, I'd probably use a 'loud' font that looks good in all caps (or small caps, which may be a good solution here). Possible free fonts that I can think of that may work well for you: Bebas Neue Montserrat Gotham, ...
