    Valentina D'Estes' Porfolio Review

    My name is Valentina Rosalia D'Este. I'm 26 years old. I'm merely a hobbyist, but it is my greatest desire to one day illustrate fantasy and chilresns' books.
    Although I only got 10 pieces in my portfolio at this time, I wish you to post your sincere opinions. I will remove a piece if you think it is pulling down my portfolio.
    I want to know what I should focus on to become a better illustrator, and perhaps what I should add to the portfolio to have the nessesary components for an illustration portfolio. I am going to add common fairy tale elements.
    And here is the website (I'll get a better URL)

    Out of curiosity, what type of mushrooms were those supposed to be? Are they just a fictional type of mushroom from your head? I ask because I've been having a bit of fun trying to classify mushrooms recently and I can't figure those out.

    zwarrior- thanks for the insight. Really appreciate the honesty . It might sound odd but I've never acctually tough about dead leaves, but I totally see how something seemingly so small could have a huge impact on a painting! There is a painting of a fruit basket that comes to mind. One of the very few I actually liked and that is because it is full of small "imperfections", making the whole painting look more real.

    Jacob- They are just fictional. They are probably somewhat based on various brown mushrooms and red mushrooms that you find everywhere in most norwegian forests.. Amanita rubescens, Amanita muscaria, Cortinarius collinitus and somthing which I can't quite seem to find. Long skinny stem, Black inside the hat and light brown on top of the hat. Insanely fragile. I used to see those everery day as a kid but then moved to the city. Those were the ones that were "particularly pretty/interesting" to me as a kid. Should still have used reference though, hehe. :p
