Hey long time no see CA! This is not my first sketchbook thread on ConceptArt believe it or not! Time and time again I end up failing at liking my art enough to keep it on here for too long~
I am a graduate of the school Columbus College of Art and Design (major in Illustration!) . Currently I work at a small video game developer as a 2D artist. I really want to move on from the company and look elsewhere for work, preferably a larger company! However to do this I need to restart my portfolio from scratch. In my opinion, non of my work is up to par.
So please! Give me any advice as to what I should focus on, and what would look good in a portfolio (i'm begging you all!). I need help, I've been in a major art slump ever since college ended!
Thank you very much~!

My advice after looking at your first image is to learn how to represent the differences between male and female faces. Things such as the chin, the nose, the jawline, and the neck. It's good to have a unique style, but basic ideas such as male vs. female should still be clearly recognizable within that style. That said, you do have talent.
@Dahami- definitely. As you can see I have posted mostly female characters/drawings, but usually for the most part I favor drawing men. I've been trying to push myself to draw female characters but I think they look a little manish here and there.
art post for the day~ I've just been sketching this character a lot lately. She has fun shapes. I think I will sculpt her out of clay soon!
