My best EVER!

Post by Frank Stockton » Tue Aug 12, 2008 4:08 pm

Hey guys,

I can't say what this is for, but I need some help in narrowing my portfolio down to my 5 strongest pieces. To make my decisions, i think it would be helpful for y'all to tell me which numbers of the following group are your 5 fav's.


THANKS! I owe you big time.

I think 21 is my fav - I love all those blue screens with the red guy and dog in front of them.

Best for what, Frank?

Is this for self promotion, or a website - for general audiences or adults or art directors or gallery owners?

I could pick out 5 of my favorites, but they may not be the ones you'd choose if you're trying to get a Family Illustration Gig.

I said I can't say what it's for. Just pick your favorites, duh!

I think these pieces really show how you illustrate, Good variety of your great use of color, and your composition.

Hi frank,

#2, 8, 10, 21, 22

I really think these are the strongest pieces, they have a strong color pallet, your camera angles are great. Because they lead your eye around the picture and gives a focus to the Illustration. And they all are consistence. Each one tells a story, for all your work but I think these are your strongest in my opinion.

hard for me to narrow it to five. When a portfolio is this strong you can really start nitpicking nice pieces to narrow down to the best. 22 and 8 were my top choices and the other three were a fight. My least favorites are 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 16.

7, 11, 18, 21, and 22.

All of them are great, but those are my favorites.
Hope that helps.

2. For Design
8 For Detail
10 For Style
16 or 21 for Range [one being characters and the other for progression and range of motion]
22 just because.
