I'm working on assembling a professional portfolio and one of my classes asked us to request a critique from working professionals. Comments from artists in the illustration field are especially welcome, as that is the market I'm pursuing. However, I would appreciate feedback from anyone and everyone, even if you aren't a working professional.
To introduce myself, I am an illustration student that will be graduating this December with a BFA. I want to pursue childrens' book illustrations and perhaps some editorial illustration work.
The works shown are selected pieces created over 4.5 years at my university, though for obvious reasons they are generally more recent works. The watermarks will NOT be on any piece that I mail or formally show to a publisher/client.
I am mainly looking for input on the portfolio(s) as a whole, though if there is some glaring mistake in an individual piece then by all means, point it out to me!
Thank you so much!
