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 living this dream reality, it is incredibly rare. 
When you want to be an artist working for commercial things like: movies, video-games, tabletop games, tv-shows, graphic novels etc, you have to inevitably compete with tons of other great artists. A lot of those artists don't know how to market themselves though.

Hey...~. How are you all..~? Good? I hope you're good. This is the bio section, so I guess I'll tell little bit about me.

Well... I like to draw a lot~. I like learning new ways to draw, new coloring techniques and new poses and everything. I like drawing what ever I'm into at the moment, that currently being Hetalia, specifically AmeCan. (I apologize if you watch me for other things or if you don't like that I spam your inbox with multiple deviations of the same characters). Most of my drawings revolve around my current phase. I draw a lot of emotional art too, meaning I draw out my emotions. (You may see a lot of that as well, and I apologize again). Umm... I like to draw other things too, though, when I get the inspiration, especially flowers, but I'm not to good at that, so I haven't posted many of those up yet~.

Umm, I do post up 'rant' and 'emotional/complain-y/PMS-y' type journals, so if you don't like that, please, just don't read my journal, yes? I apologize up front if anything I do upsets you or you don't like it. (You can tell I apologize to much). I just need to get some stuff out sometimes when I feel no one listens. And what better way than to do it to the internet~! Hahaha, actually that's not really that good... Heh heh heh.

I like to make friends. They're nice~. I like to roleplay too... I role play Canada, mostly and currently. I take to much pride in that, you really don't understand.

And well, other than that, I'm not a mean person. I try to be nice and what not, and (I hope) I'm easy to get along with. If you'd like to talk, please feel free~! I'd love to talk to you~! About anything, I don't mind~.

Uhm. Hi there! *waves*

Just wondering if you are still pretty active in the :iconus-x-canada-fans: group, because I've submitted a deviation almost a week ago and it's still not accepted. ._.

That is all. Thank you for your time~! :aww:
