It is very simple to create speech balloons. Once you learn how to create an oval balloon, you already know how to create other shaped ones. We start by creating the basic oval shaped balloon.

Draw a triangle using the polygon tool.Select the triangle with the select tool and drag right the part shown on the image above.
Now you have a vertically long triangle. This will be applied to the balloon. You will rotate it, apply it to the oval, and the speech balloon will be completed.
You will rotate the triangle you created in the step02 using the rotate tool.
Select the triangle with the select tool and click the rotate tool. By dragging the mouse, the triangle rotates. Please rotate it to the point shown on the image on the right above.
You will complete the illustration by unionizing the oval you created in Step01 and the triangle you created in Step03.
Drag the triangle you created in Step03 to the oval as shown in the image above. Select the oval with the select tool. Click [Path Finder -> Unionize]
Then the oval and the triangle are unionized. You created a speech balloon path.Now the oval speech balloon illustration is completed.
You successfully created a simple oval-shaped speech balloon.
Next, you will learn how to create a cloud-shaped speech balloon.
You can create it very easily by simply modifying the oval one a little. You create multiple ovals on the oval balloon you created above.
Select everything with the select too. Click Unionize Path Finder.The paths are unionized and you have a cloud-shaped speech balloon illustration.
Lastly, you will see how to create the rectangle speech balloon.
The method is the same as the oval one. Create a corner rounded rectangle using the corner rounded rectangle tool.
