Its been a while - 80 hours muraling - can this go in my illustration portfolio?

  • Hello All! Sorry that i've been a bit quiet on here for a while, it's been crazy busy in my world, I thought I'd post what I've been up to. Here's a mural I finished on Friday that puts into practice some things I've learnt so far from SVS courses. Its finished not perfect as there are so many things I would just tweak a little if I had a few more hours, however, my clients are very happy so that's good.
    The mural is for a child's bedroom, and is inspired by the Fern Hollow books from the 70s/80s with a little wind in the willows mixed in. It took about 80 hours to paint and I've accidentally strained my wrist painting planets on the ceiling! Hopefully I'll be able to be on the forums a bit more now, Anyways here are a few pics (please excuse that I haven't tidied them up in Photoshop yet)...

    Also do you think (once I've tidied up the photos) I could put this in my illustration portfolio as well as my mural portfolio or keep it separate?

    No clue. But I would think so. Looks like a little
    Childrenโ€™s book layout for me. especially the little row boat. Looks great!

    @rachy Looks great! I really would love to do something like this but not sure my wife would allow me LOL. Anyway great job, as far as adding it to your portfolio, maybe a separate section for it. And as you do more you can expand that part.

  • @whitney-simms Thanks Whitney ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @chip-valecek Thanks Chip! Ah it didn't notification me that anyone had replied! It's great fun painting this big u should talk your wife into it! I'm thinking I might make a photo link from my illustration page to my murals page with one of the pics of this one if that makes sense.

  • This is adorable and definitely portfolio-worthy if you ask me! ๐Ÿ™‚

    If you should put it in your portfolio depends on your goals though, do you want to be hired to do more murals? If yes, go for it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
