tycarterart:

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!

Hey, I wanted to address some comments I saw, and I wanted to include art. XD
I was very happy to see someone commented on how they liked that my turtle!Karai is flat chested. Also I’ve seen a few comments, and gotten a few myself (not on this site) about how April turtle should have boobs and hair.
To me, if you stick boobs and hair on them, they become furries, or just some gross fantasy fetish, if you’re into that, that’s your business. I am not. (I don’t really understand the difference between furry and anthro, my understanding is that furries are more human like? idk)
Any way, in my species swap au, April was born a turtle. The surface world is made up of turtles (and other animal mutants), and the boys are still in hiding in the sewer. I just don’t see the point on putting breasts or hair on someone who was never human to begin with.
…. and that’s why no boobs or hair… plus I still would take away boobs and hair even if she had been human because turtles are not mammals.
Besides there are plenty of ways to tell male from female besides boobs. Like hips, childish features, slender shoulders, attitude and stance, body language, muscle tone, voice, eyes…
Okay that’s it, I’m done. lol I promise I’ll post nicer art work soon, and some non-turtle art too… As soon as I get over my fears of posting original art! XD
