Default Seeking Apprenticeship and Advice (North West)

Hey. I'm looking for another apprenticeship in or around the Merseyside area and also some criticism of my work and advice on what to include in my portfolio.

I currently have around 30 A3 sheets of work, most of which is complete but I'm adding to it every day (not sure if I should have more?) I know my drawing skills have a long way to go but I'd like to know what you all think.

Some criticism I've had of my portfolio from local artists: More contrast in my realism, more flash-type images, vary line weights more, think about drawings as tattoos in terms of placement on body font sizes etc.

Oh my scanner is broken atm, hence the photos, sorry.
Thanks in advance for any input!

I think you just need to spend more time on the realistic stuff, they don't look rushed but they just look about 40% finished, no real depth in the shading but that could be from the types of pencil you're using.

For now I'd just stick to pencil work and try to get better at that rather than trying to delve into too many different mediums, I'd also stick with drawing familiar faces/movie portraits than family/self portraits.

I wish I could blame the pencils! But yeah I get what you mean, I'm gonna re-work the Walter White today and post it up again. Hopefully it'll be a step in the right direction. Thank you!!

A lot better man,

I suggest to help your draftsmanship to watch Proko vids on youtube or buy a couple of Andrew Loomis books, they'll improve your work tremendously.. But keep it up and keep challenging yourself.

Once you have 20 excellent pieces of work you'll be ready to go to a studio.
