Thank you SVS for making it!



  • I've been working professionally as an illustrator for some time now and i finally have a body of work stacked. I've decided to change my Instagram structure and show you guys more of what I do, as well as include all the sketches I make and publications I have. There was a day when I would message 20 Illustrators daily asking for help and tips on how to break into industry, and i still do that now I watch SVS videos everyday to get updated, I would like to thank all of those who answered because I finally do what I truly love.
    Thanks

  • @VitoPetra

    I am very happy for you 🙂 .



  • @VitoPetra Congrats, Vito! The kind of persistence you have shown - and continue to show - is such a great example. There's much to learn from stories like yours.

    Out of curiosity, what would you say was the best step you took in achieving your artistic goals?



  • @animatosoor I think the very first step was to actually adminting you are doing this for living, and it was really hard because everyone around would ask you what do you do and all that stuff and i would say something like yeaaah im doing children illustration but i work in the pub or doing graphic design, stuff like that.
    Once i told myself I am doing this, i started to act like a professional and just simply do projects instead of fixing my portfolio because it's never good enough, even now my kids they look scary and ugly, but once you let it go and understand that you have lifetime to improve it's easier to actually finish a project and be noticed haha


  • Pro SVS OG

    That is awesome!!!



  • @lmrush Thank you so much! I am so excited to see where all this is going to take me!



  • @VitoPetra You're so right. Thank you for this! Sometimes we do ourselves a lot of damage by telling ourselves our portfolios need to be flawless right away, and while we should all strive to do our best work for our portfolios, we also need to realise that this should be an ongoing process. The projects tip is great as well. Again, good on you for doing this. 😊
