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.

Day #18 Inktober - Troodon
I have been using my markers so much that one of them started DRYing OUT. DAAAAAAMN!! 

That usually happens when I forget to cap them properly LOL

Refrenced from a stunning Maquette I found on Pinterest by a Mr David Krentz! Check him out!! 
Inktober Day #17 - Rex Rawr
Day 17 and Rex Shot again. Drawing a lot of reference on Pinterest <3 

Over the Hump! Didn't think I would make it this far!

I tried link back the Source from pinterest, but the link is Dead womp womp! I think it was from a model/ Maquette, but it may very well have been a ref from a good Render! 
Day #16 Inktober - Ceratosaurus
Day 16! The last two Days of Catchup will be uploaded tonight for sure! 

Thanks again for all the faves guys! 

Cerato's Neck makes him look like a Dragon!
