By now you have decided you want to become an illustrator, that’s great! But how do you go about it?
Well, to start you should already have a portfolio online so potential customers can view some of the already fine works you have been able to produce.
What if I don’t have any past works to show? Well then now is the time to get some made. The work you put in now will pay off later. People are visual, they want to see what you are capable of. Even if your style may not be everyone’s cup of tea the one that is looking for you needs to see your genre or type of work you can produce.
You need to find your skill that you excel at and stick to that type of Author who is looking for what you can produce.
