A guide on making an art portfolio.

A guide on making an art portfolio.

Hello! Very often people ask me to review their portfolio, often enough to detect a certain pattern of wrong choices that cause potential proffecional artists to sit longer on the side bench than necessary. The following article serves as a guideline but in no way it it the absolute truth or only route into getting yourself a concept art position or illustration job. See it as a checklist, before approaching your dream job. It's the big artist dream to simply paint what you like and be able to sell that and make a ton of money so you can simply keep making what you like. Even though there are some artists out there that are pretty much livi

My Bio
I'm 21 and going to college. I have a twin sister who also draws and we both support each other in our art. I also like to listen to Japanese and Korean music.

I know I still have a ways to go before I considered a really good artist but my dream is to one day be recognized in the artist community. Also, I'm a shy person so if I don't respond to a comment or if I seem mean it's not that I'm just socially awkward <_<
