    Hi Matt,

    What should a concept art portfolio look like?

    -focused on one thing only (like characters) or more varied/generic (characters environments creatures etc)
    -fully rendered pieces or character sheets with sketches and written explanations
    -are there pieces which definitely should or should not be in it (figure Drawing studies, fanarts, portraits, full figures, illustrations, sheets with different facial expressions, costume/clothes variations sheets)
    -is 3D relevant?
    -should one display a variety of styles, keep a consistent one or try to emulate that of a specific company
    -how do you decide the order of the pieces?
    -What do you actually send out? (A folder with pngs, one pdf file, a slideshow video, etc)
    -is there anywhere to find “successful” portfolios of professional artists to look at?
    -what are the key differences versus an illustration portfolio

    Sorry if it’s a lot of questions but I’m really ignorant when it comes to this stuff.

    Thanks for all your help,

    Alan Franceschini

    Also how many pieces should it contain?
