Hello Art/illustration friends
Hello Art/illustration friends,
Introducing my self; Will Coats here an illustrator artist, I was born with a pencil in my hand (sorry Mom). Missing opportunities to go to art school developing methods and techniques in the dark. Working to leverage a tiny bit of natural talent, I’m seeking community with fellow travelers to reach our highest potential (artistically). So please do critique

Hi Will, and welcome! What mediums do you work in?
I really like the picture of Aslan on the front of your website. Those have long been some of my favorite books.

@w-coats Welcome to the forums! You will get critiques here for sure, all great advice!
Thank you thank you very much Chip Valecek, good to hear. I wonder; is there a mechanistic for portfolio review? That would be pretty helpful @chip-valecek
Thank you Tracy!! I also am a big fan of the Chronicles of Narnia, and a burrito aficionado, thanks @twiggyt

@w-coats Ah, the Chronicles of Narnia. First books I fell in love with, thanks to my mother. Welcome!

RE: "portfolio review" Usually, people have just posted one image or series as a new topic on the forum, and ask for critiques & advice (I see you've figured that out & posted one already!).
For help with portfolios, there are a couple classes you might want to check out:
How to Perfect Your Children's Book Portfolio, Will Terry
Portfolio and Self Promotion, James Yang
(I haven't taken these yet!)
As for a portfolio review by the Pros, I think they have offered portfolio reviews as a live class before, but I'm not sure. You could send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org to ask if they have anything like that coming up.
