@christopherh After looking at your site, I had a question. The sloth in outer space and “Pigeon Pete” seem like much more confident and developed pieces with a definitive style that I’m not seeing in the other pieces you have in your portfolio. Are those pieces newer than the rest, or perhaps did you simply spend more time on them? If I were you I’d make those pieces the bar of comparison and make sure that each piece you post could be favorably compared to them, being as good or better than as you grow, and remove the less complex pieces as you can. To that same point, if I were looking to hire someone and saw your site, I would have difficulty knowing whether you’d give me texturey colorful sloth style or the more basic “grass is green, sky is blue” airbrushed style that others have already commented on in this thread. Thanks for sharing your site, hope this helps.

RE: Portfolio Critique please?
Portfolio review? New to forum...
Hey everyone, I’m new here so please let me know if this isn’t what happens on these forums, but I’ve recently updated my portfolio and was hoping some of you would be willing to give me your thoughts on it. I’m looking for work in the editorial field as a wildlife and natural sciences illustrator, and while I know SVS emphasizes more children’s/story based work, I thought it’d still be great to hear your impressions on first seeing my illustrations. I give you permission to be brutally honest if you decide to give me feedback, I promise I can take it and will appreciate your honesty. You can see my portfolio at www.thecuriouswild.com and thanks in advance if you decide to take a look.
