Tuesday Tips — Portfolio 101.

With the end of the year/the beginning of the year fast approaching, it’s a good time to revamp your portfolio.  These are some quick tips for visual development/character design portfolio.

1.  Know what you want on your finish book.
Work backwards — decided on how many pages you want, then work from there.

2.  Best piece on the first page, second best on the last page, and third best in the middle.  (Something that I learned from Art Center.  This doesn’t always work out, but it’s a good thing to remember and I do my best to put my best piece on the first page).

3.  Rythm.  Make sure it flows nicely.  Most of the time, you’re NOT there in person when someone is looking at your book; so it’s a good idea if it tells a story and make sure it is telling who you are as an artist and what can you do to help out the team.

I also put an example of a thumbnail if I were to plan a 24 pages printed visual development  portfolio.

Have fun
