Knowing how to present your work in the most impressive way, and also attracting the attention of those who view it, is a key step to increasing your employability to work in the industry.
In this guide, we’ll look at how to approach presenting a 3D Environment Art piece to showcase the your absolute potential. Here at CGHero, we work with dozens of artists every week. We’re always on the lookout for artists who are interested in freelance work - here are some of the key things our producers look for in a portfolio.
Presenting your work in a way that allows it to stand above others shows anyone viewing your work that you have a strong understanding of composition, and a good knowledge of what is visually interesting and appealing. If you are unable to present your work in the most effective way possible, your work will never be able to show it’s maximum potential.
It’s important to remember that there is no fixed rules for presenting your work, as everybody has their own preferences and methods. However, below are some important features we feel create an awesome portfolio.
A longer video, which repeatedly shows the same area, may struggle to maintain the attention of your audience. Compare that to a shorter length video, which shows new areas and points of interest will be much more impactful. It’s a balancing act that takes time to get right, but is worth the extra effort to achieve.
Generally speaking, as little as 10 seconds can be enough; try and keep it below a minute in any case.
Following this guide, your latest portfolio addition should be looking top notch. Feel free to hit us up on the CGHero Discord, or sign up to the site today!
