Globo de diálogo


Explanation:

Globo de llamada, Nube de llamada


Explanation:
Globo de llamada (when it does look like a baloon)

Nube de llamada (when it looks like a cloud..mostly used in thinking dialogues and cartoons)

Some computers in fact, include the actual drawing to be worked on.

Good Luck!
