Just taking a look at your website the first thing I would suggest is a splash page with one of your completed works displayed. People are going to want to see your kick ass artwork first off, not a half completed project. Also would ad a "blog" header so you can still navigate to your current projects. I enjoyed the simple layout. Only thing I didn't enjoy was your current homepage, as it rolls a blog that only has 3 posts (not to say that is a bad thing, it is young). I really liked your illustrations, but seeing what was on your blog first made me want to click the back arrow. Keep up the good work, and I will be visiting your site again
thanks for the reply, I think you are right about the home page,I just have to add more content so it doesnt look empty.I try to make my home page look like a news ,or the newest work displayed,just as a blogger. But if it makes people scared or make them think that they shouldnt check out the other pages,I will definatly add more content. Thanks for the critique!
Could I get more advices please
You need to refine and finish your work before posting it up, especially never put up WIPs, thinking processes can be good but not WIPs. I didn't really see anything on your site of a professional standard, if you are just looking to show your hobby to others it is fine, but i wouldn't call it a professional portfolio and i don't think anyone would hire or commission you based on the level of work you have displayed.

Thanks man, I have been exploring a lot of different styles and versions of how I can make a new more defined website. I just started my first year of uni ,doing graphic design BA hons and I am learning so much. I created this blog/portfolio when I was stil in college doing my A levels. But I am taking a different look on it now and I think to get one of these pro portfolio sites from behance where you can create your own and it looks pretty professional. I have read some of your Linkedin and as and experienced designer, I am very interested to know what you think about getting a website built by the prosite from behance. Can you give me an advise of where or how i can create my new website.
