    Getting your Portfolio viewed

    So I got my portfolio reviewed this year by some guy from Gestalt Comics.
    Didnt go very well since

    1. He doesnt know a lot about anime and manga format
    and
    2. I was extremely unprepared since I had a week to prepare one and I'm a lazy prick so I havent drawn many things.

    SO here are some tips to get prepare yourself into getting your portfolio reviewed by comic publishers as an artist!

    Please read this:

    1. Publishers would want to see some environmental artwork in your portfolio.
    2. Dynamic Poses are more interesting than static ones.
    3. Expressions are important in your character.
    4. Have a range in your portfolio.
    5. Make sure you know anatomy, as well as you are consistent with drawing characters in panels (if you have comic work)


    If you get a chance to get your portfolio viewed by a professional, do so! It is a great learning curve and would definitely help you in getting work from publishers in the future.

    Feel free to post some more tips here!
