Assembling Your Portfolio

UPDATE : Friday, October 13, 2006

Below are things you NEED to catch editor's attention and get jobs.

To be a comic book artist, you need to draw comic book pages. The most obvious mistake that we see in most artist's submission is that they want to be a comic book artist without trying to draw any comic book pages, they draw nothing but pinups.

Sequential Pages

The most important part of your portfolio are your sequential sample pages.

An aspiring comic book artist can get a job from 6 pages of sequential artwork. If they're the right six pages.

On the previous page you'll find test plots.

One of the plots posted is for the X-Men, Although the six-page test plot features X-MEN characters, you don't have to draw your sample with those Characters. You can use any set of recognizable, established characters from ANY popular comic book universe. You can use Spiderman and Mary Jane, Lois and Superman, Glory and Supreme, Captain America and Scarlet Witch, etc.

This is applicable to almost ALL of the tryout script available here.

Adapt the script on the characters to be used accordingly.

The tryout plot tests the artist to draw a little bit of everything -- body language, gesture, expressions, real clothes, real people, buildings, cars, children, pets, wet things, aliens, monsters, super-heroes, babes, space ships, shattering glass, forced perspective, dramatic lighting. -- real SCENES that make the artwork reflect LIFE in the real world.
