your sheet looks great Laurel! Love the piece you've chosen as the largest image
one suggestion - add an email and phone number!! making it as easy as possible/reducing the hurdles for the publisher to get in touch can't hurt
You could have your portfolio filterable by keywords if your website allows. That way someone looking can click 'comics' and it would filter out everything and leave only the comic based work. This way all your work is still in one place, but people viewing the work can quickly get rid of the stuff they're not looking for
@RobinCampbellArt It makes a lot of sense !! A couple of things I did not realise though was that the animal was a wolf, it looks tiny and quite cute
also, I didn't quite realise it was a cat FISH, but looking back now you've said that, it does seem more obvious. Maybe you could add a few more fishy features like pectoral fins
otherwise I think it does a good job and definitely saw the scene of the wolf trying to snatch the basket!
Like the drawing so far!
My guess from what you have shown here: This is a little red riding hood story, but instead of a wolf hunting her down, there's a critter or gang of critters trying to get their hands on the basket? She's also got a giant cat helping her
Great work on the godzilla piece and love the new one you've started! Like everyone else says the expressions are awesome, and your linework is so confident it looks ace Definitely agree with @Julike-Challenge , it looks like the fish is telling a bad/cheesy joke - even the other fish in the pond are rolling their eyes like they've heard it all before
@ShannonBiondi Thank you Shannon! I'm so glad the story comes across Also i'm glad you like the colours! Usually that's something I am not so fond of in my work but this time I was secrelty quite proud - still yet to see the printed version but hoping it came across as vivid on paper!
@TessaW Thanks for the help! You're absolutely right , that would have worked really well Also would have got around the slightly dodgy leg positioning - great idea!
I haven't dealt with publishers, but when emailing art directors i've had the most success when giving a short letter which a) compliments the magazine and the art directors work and b) shows that i've specifically targeted that magazine - I guess the idea of being part of a mass email is a bit impersonal and a turnoff
like Ness says, as long as the link is clear they can always disregard the message if they're only interested in the link, but showing a bit of personality and keenness can go a long way
@hannahmccaffery Thanks very much!! Nit picking is what I was hoping for so you helped a lot
@animatosoor Thank you too! I always find the idea stage the hardest and most daunting so it's reassuring to hear the message comes aross clearly !
Thank you both!
