    What Should I Include in my Portfolio?

    Hello All! I have been looking for an Artist Internship and I have found one to apply for, however I am in need of assistance regarding what to put into my portfolio so I can apply. The responsibilities for the internship include:

    Following Lead Artist and helping them on projects (getting them coffee XDD)
    Cleaning up 2d sprites and 3D models, renders or animation
    Implementing assets using proprietary software
    Occasionally test games for art bugs

    Well I don't really know what I can put into my portfolio to show them that I can do these things, so some advice on this would be much appreciated!
    thank you.

    Hey man

    Watch this video (also part 2 and 3) it will explain what employers are looking for.


    While this video is helpful, you're points seem to be a little like being a tattooist apprentice, showing you can do the crappy jobs to get ahead, won't hurt to make up a good portfolio to show them you can do * X subject here*

    It wouldn't hurt to ask them what they want to see in portfolios, or check if they have portfolio submission guidelines anywhere (some companies do...)
