Haha! The elephant drawing made me burst out laughing... oh man. It's hilarious. Your work is so fun to look at! Even when it's kind of sad. Poor tiger :(

I really enjoy the textures you've incorporated into these pieces, especially the coloring and feathers on the bird. I think I enjoy the juxtaposition in your personal piece the best.

I adore the house hunting sequence. Hilarious, mostly because it's true... :lol: I really enjoy the use of colors to set mood, as well.

Great tips, thanks! Should the prints be any particular size? Also, depending on the size, should/can there be multiple pieces on one sheet? One more thing: how they are presented. Is it standard to use a portfolio binder or loose leaf or something completely different?

Print vs. Slides

When submitting a hard copy flatwork portfolio, what is the standard format (if it is not specified)? Do you send prints in a portfolio, or slides? Do you include captions for the pieces (medium, size, etc)? Any other pointers would be great.

Thanks everyone for your advice! I have started pulling things together, and perhaps getting a better idea of where to go. Thank you Nick for the tip about looking up artists... I never really thought of approaching it that way. Now I have a reason to brush the dust off of my account at Conceptart.o...

Nick, I think you hit it on the head; I'm not sure where to go, and am afraid of getting stuck in something I don't like or wasting time learning something I don't need. At this point, I have a working knowledge of Photoshop from dabbling on my own for some classroom assignments, and I know I need t...

At this point, I'm so new to the digital creative job world that I don't really know what kind of job I would like. I have a ton of questions once I get into an interview, but it's getting an interview in the first place. I'm flat not qualified for practically all artist jobs I've seen advertised. I...

Thank you so much, guys! I was looking at more of a print/advertising type of production artist/graphic designer. Your answers have helped me get an idea of what these titles mean. I'm in kind of a pickle, because my art degree taught me skills that are somewhat incomplete. I feel like I have a good...

I got into the videogame scene a bit later than my peers, but I had a few truly imprint on my brain and that I always return to: Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn) : I first saw this game when someone else was playing it, and was drawn to just watch it being played. I searched high and low for a Saturn ye...

Pascal, I don't know if I asked you this before, but about how long does it take for you to create these beauties?

They are gorgeous, as always!

It's all about the spider rolls. Deep-fried-soft shell crab all the way! Although, I don't recommend them for a first date. There is absolutely no way to eat them elegantly.

What do these art job titles mean?

Hello all! I have a somewhat stupid question. What exactly do production artists, graphic designers, technical artists do? I have found "definitions" of the positions, but never a real answer as to what the work is, what the work load is like, etc. I would appreciate anything anyone who has had thes...

I have to agree that the texture in the foreground seems a bit fuzzy, but I think that some signs of life in the foreground (someone walking on the walkways, for example) would be a great addition and also make the image feel less static. Beautiful water!
