    Need advice on my portfolio

    I kinda been working on a couple of things which lifted my spirits.....then I just had feedback from an interview from what can only be described as my dream job. It is disheartening as I feel like I am crap and that my years in uni where a waste of time and money. But I am going to do more...

    Monsters

    It has been an active week, been doing prep for an interview and now have to get on with the book project for dark harvest. I have been doing some stuff including a hand drawn font for the title. Kayley Hill (the third picture) I have decided to make it a full font (starting with the...

    Monsters

    Okay so I am going to add more color to my portfolio. So I drew this collection of cartoon monsters and vectorised it. I am going to fill the page up with these creatures as a mock movie poster for a horror film called "Sweet Meats". Tell me what you think of the creatures. .....Edit: I am...

    Need advice on my portfolio

    I have no interest in being offensive about your work and I'm sorry if you've taken it personally but you asked for a critique and that's what I gave you (perhaps we've both learned a lesson about proof reading here?). Tbh it was only that line that seemed offensive in that context, the rest...

    Need advice on my portfolio

    Mistake on a greek hotel floor? Okay that line was pretty brutal to the point of being offensive.... I will admit I need more variety, but it almost sounded like you are saying all my work is a load of horse dung...

    Need advice on my portfolio

    So I am sick of getting emails saying that I have not been selected for interviews. So I pressed on and asked "why", after three none answers I got an answer. So yes......it seems that I am considered a one trick pony..... Kayley Hill (if people have looked at my website before, I have added...

    Stuck on an illustration for an occult book.

    So the guy I did the logos for wants me to do the illustrations for a book now (in the same style as the nod logo.) But I am finding it difficult, as I am not an illustrator really. I am trying to find ways to fix the issues on this page. I am happy with the temple and the chains, though I...

    Arundel stamp logo

    I did the top example a while ago as a submission for a branding of the irish town of Athy with Peter Anderson Studios, it was not used and it has since rotted in my portfolio. I have since been trying to reuse some of this work to freshen up my website (as it did not seem to fit the style of...

    House of Nod - logo

    I guess this is just further proof I can't please everyone. One lot saying destroy the bottom, the other saying destroy the top.

    Advice on getting my work seen

    I am kinda in the same situation, just that I do graphics rather then illustration. All I can say is network more, behance, cargo, conceptart, etc etc. Do some work with groups like good for nothing is another way to go.

    House of Nod - logo

    Okay I have taken all your critique on board, and I have decided to present the logo in 4 versions which can be used however the publisher wants. I have the OTT illustration, which is free of text. One which is sans underground and a version of that small recommended by CLHB. I also have a...
