01

Be laser fo­cused

Sharpen one knife. Many artists think be­ing a gen­er­al­ist makes get­ting jobs eas­ier. Imag­ine be­ing an Olympic ath­lete. Would you have bet­ter suc­cess train­ing for just one event or three? 02 set your bar

Com­pare your work to that of your he­roes. Is it just as good? If not, why not? By prac­tis­ing this method, you will learn to give your­self the best feed­back. 03 get no­ticed

Hav­ing great work is use­less if no one sees it. Net­work on Artstation and so­cial me­dia. Post your work strate­gi­cally. Do you want po­ten­tial clients see­ing your works in progress? 04 prac­tice de­lib­er­ately

Don’t stop af­ter post­ing your port­fo­lio on­line. Go into each train­ing ses­sion with a clear in­ten­tion. How can you im­prove qual­ity and tech­nique? Prac­tis­ing on au­topi­lot equals your craft dy­ing. 05 make your best im­pres­sion You’re as good as your worst port­fo­lio piece. With roughly eight to 12 pieces, you will leave the viewer want­ing more. Clients will make their de­ci­sions by the third im­age.
