Thanks for all the great emails and questions about putting a portfolio together. I’ve been getting a lot of the same questions and decided it would be a better use of my time to write it all out. I’ve derived the content from from my own experience and internships before having a full-time job. As you’ll read, a portfolio is the most important thing you’ll do when applying to a job. I’ve tried to be as detailed as possible.

These are the first five pages in a series of posts about how to layout a portfolio, including content, images, size, material and everything in between. Part I is for the artist still deciding what to do for a discipline. I’ve catered the last three pages to a visual development portfolio for animation but the principles can be applied to any artistic presentation (illustration, design, even interior design).

These are my opinions and I realize there are many ideas out there which are also fantastic. What I have written are simple truths and tips I’ve learned along the way. This doesn’t represent a studio I work or will work for. I hope it is helpful and can provide some perspective into a competitive portfolio and help you land your next job!

Apologies in advance for any spelling errors, I’ll fix stuff in the morning…too tired now…

oh hey it’s a tutorial on glowing stuff I guess…I already made one 2 years ago but I don’t make things glow like that any more :|

…also when I’m manually doing colours I pick things like this as if I was shading.

there’s a lot more I could put in as well, but it really varies on the picture how I do the glow…it is usually just fiddling around with styles and colours though.

This is awesome!

This is a project I did in Paper if you want to check it out there is a link provided below. To help start the project I vectorized it in Adobe Illustrator. It helps me in figuring out shaping and color to illustration. The foundation of the idea was how happy I was to graduate. You should always have a glow when your ready to swim, even if your whale, I guess.  - Laura De Fazio  - https://www.behance.net/gallery/Im-Ready/8027879
