Um hi I am new to the forum? I wanted to contribute my artwork here but idk how to make a portfolio lol. So, uh is it something you need to be trusted to do or am I just being dum.b? Thanks in advance.
Welcome to the forum!
There’s a template for portfolios here. But because of your trust level, you can’t post images yet. But you can format the images like you did with the link in the Action Channel nomination topic. A leader can edit the images so they show up.
Hey there! Welcome to the Drawing topic!
Here’s how to make a portfolio:
Tap on the gear icon
Next, tap hide details:
You’ll get something like this:
You can edit the folder name by changing the text “Summary” to “Artist summary”. To put text in it, replace “This text will be hidden” to a short non-personal bio of yourself and your drawing style.
Next create another folder that says “Portfolio”. That’s where your images will go.
If you can’t figure it out, I can make the whole thing for you if you’d like
Should I do that? I’ve never created a portfolio, what do you mean, bio?
Just a short sentence or two about yourself and your drawings. Doesn’t have to be much
Whoa okay I hope this works lol
About Me and the Art
Hey! I’m on Hopscotch as Lovely Lemons and I mostly do pencils sketches and stuff. I also am trying to get into watercolour landscapes. Below you’ll find some art of my that is FTU. (Incase you can’t tell by the art, I like Pokémon lol)
A sunset beach thing I drew on google canvas a while back
A quick sketch from a while back (the bottom half turned out bleh so I cut it out lol
An art project for school, we had to pick a one point perspective landscape and I found this! (If you haven’t seen a picture of the real one you probs can’t tell what’s happening) Idk if I’m allowed to say this but search “sigiriya landscape” and it should show up. Idk I got a good mark so I thought it would be fun to post.
Apparently the file does not exist
Also google docs can not be posted on here, it’s something called cof (communication outside of forum) and it can do really bad things
Link seems to be broken?
If you want to fix it, you could press this button when making a post:
Choose the drawing you want to post, Then just add a space somewhere in the link, and a lead will fix it for ya.
I like your drawings! And no problem :))
Yep works now!
Awesome! You created your first portfolio!
A little note:
Next time try this:
Sorry I thought that I could just make a google doc with the photos and share it! My bad lol. I’ll keep that in mind from now on thank you!
Hey don’t worry! These things happen to everyone.
Btw your art is really cool! Could you tag me for updates?
Just reply to your original portfolio post by clicking the little arrow in the bottom right corner of the post, then tag the people who wanted to be tagged (me in this case) (for future reference.)
No worries, you had no idea it wasn’t allowed;)
Just keep it in mind for next time:)
Wow okay! I’m really flattered you guys like my art! so I just make a folder with tagged names in it every time I make a portfolio?
Yep. Just add it in the post!
You’re a really nice artist by the way, it takes skill to draw people. Best I can do is a stick figure and even then I can’t proportion it lol
Lol it just takes practice…lots of practice
