Be sure to show lots of examples of drawing from life and direct observation, such as:

  • Hands, feet, human figures and animals

  • Representational drawing

  • Interior and/or exterior environments

You can also include:

  • Class assignments, design projects

  • Animation, multimedia

  • Paintings, photographs, and/or sculptures

Important to remember:

Do not copy from another artist.

Avoid cliches like anime, tattoo designs, dragons, or unicorns

At least half of your portfolio should consist of drawing from direct observation.
