RE: Thank you SVS for making it!
@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
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.
RE: Commission print services?
I think the best way is to talk to a local printers and make a deal with them, even if you might have to tell them a white lie saying they could benefit from you because you might be busy and print bulk in the future.
I did that with my picture book, they were making 1 at the time I was doing for my Instagram project to test out how many people are actually engaging and buying things through social media.
Hope that helps.
Is my work professional enough?
Hello guys, me again haha
I was watching one of the classes "How to get Freelance Work" and I loved the comment @will-terry-art made, if you don't know if your work professional enough ask in SVS forum!
Here I am, if there are any professional illustrators out there could you critic my work, is it professional enough? www.vitopetra.com much appreciated : )
RE: Brighter colors or muted colors ? Need your opinion 🎨
ohhh what!? crazy good work! : I would go for a bit duller color range less vibrant! it's too much information to take, i would rather direct with a strong cast shadow on an actual character where would you like your viewer to look . : )
RE: Children's publishing Art Style
@nyrrylcadiz @xin-li Guys thank you a lot, it's very inspiring actually to hear all that. I just think i had one of those bad days when you are just lost in your progress and also once you have that 1 or 2 jobs from a publisher and after it stops you get paranoid is it your art or they just ran out of work haha
anyway it makes me calm when i read comments that my style haven't even changed is just the way i render maybe i just need to work all this thought time or something.
Thanks once again : )
