I’ve been blogging for a long time but I’ve never written about how to make a portfolio, one that showcases your work in the best way possible. I think this is a problem that many webcomic artists face. How do you make a portfolio that will get noticed? This post will discuss the problems with making portfolios and offer some suggestions on how to solve them.
How do you show off your best works so people can judge your talent at a glance? For example, in print comics, you would use a combination of art styles, maybe add some pin-ups, and then choose the best few pages of your comic to submit. But the internet is different and it’s very hard to show off your work in an attractive way without taking up a lot of room.

How do I make a portfolio for my art and comics?
I’ve been asked this question a few times so I figured I’d write a little guide to making your own portfolio. I’m not an expert, but I can offer some advice on what has worked for me over the years!
Step 1: Have fun with it. You’re making your art, not working on homework. This shouldn’t be stressful so don’t stress out.
Step 2: Have a reason to make it. Why are you putting this together in the first place? Are you applying for jobs or applying to shows or what?
Step 3: Decide on your format. You can choose from a website (my personal favorite), a book, a zine/mini-comic, or just digital files on your computer. Be prepared to spend time on this no matter which format you pick! It will probably take longer than you think it will and it’s going to take longer than any of your friends think it will. That’s okay!
Step 4: Start collecting images of other portfolios that you like and figure out why you like them and how they are put together. Is there something about the organization that stands out? What about the quality of the images? How have
A portfolio is an important tool in the career of any artist. If you are an artist or a designer, chances are you have a number of projects that you would like to showcase to potential clients.
You can make a beautiful portfolio yourself, one that showcases your work and your capabilities, for little cost. Here we will show you how.
Step 1: Pick your favorite medium. Now that you have chosen the medium you will be creating your portfolio in, it is time to start collecting and creating some of your best work. You should begin by collecting all of your best artwork from previous projects or assignments. You can include any work that you are proud of, regardless of whether it was for a class assignment or a personal project. If there are some pieces you are not so proud of, then try and make up for it with pieces that you know are better.
When you’re starting out in art and comics, it’s hard to know where to begin as far as putting together a portfolio. The purpose of your portfolio is to impress potential clients and hopefully get work.
The first thing to consider is the content of your portfolio. What kind of artwork do you want to show? What kind of art do you want to do? Are you more interested in doing comics or other kinds of art? Or maybe you’re more interested in designing webpages or logos?
If you want to make money with your art, focus on pieces that show your ability and interest in making money with art. That’s what potential clients are going to be most interested in.
If you’re looking for a job that doesn’t have anything directly related to art (like maybe at a bank or retail store or something), then don’t use artwork that looks like it could only be for an artistic job.
You should also consider whether or not you want images of yourself included in your portfolio. If it’s just a matter of not wanting people looking at your face while they’re trying to look at your drawings, maybe it’s okay just including photos that don’t have your face in them. Otherwise, I recommend against including them. Just my opinion; some
Why did you choose to make comics?
I chose to make comics because I like telling stories and I love drawing. Comics are a great way for me to tell stories and tell jokes in a way that i find fun and interesting to draw.
I would recommend creating comics not just because I like making them, but also because it has helped me develop as an artist. It has taught me a lot about how to tell a story with pictures. Becoming good at telling stories with pictures is a skill that can translate into becoming good at telling stories with words.
In terms of getting your work out there, the internet is your friend. There are lots of different places to share your work, such as deviantart, tumblr, reddit, etc. It’s really easy to submit your work to these websites; all you have to do is create an account and submit!
Alright, now let’s get started on the actual comic making!
When you’re starting out, people’s expectations are low. You can do a lot more to meet those expectations than you’d be able to do if you were already established.
If you want to get into comics, start making comics. Don’t wait until you feel ready; make some comics anyway. It doesn’t matter how bad they are. Just get your name and your work out there.
Whatever story you’ve been telling yourself about why you can’t start yet, take it out and look at it. Is it really personal? Or is it just a justification for not getting started? If the latter, throw it away and stop using it.
There are no shortcuts to success, but there are lots of ways of cutting corners. Most of them will leave you with nothing except wasted time . But one will get your work in front of readers, which is all that matters in the beginning.”
