I’ve been having trouble finding client work over the past few years, and now that I’m out of a full time job, I’ve been dedicating more time to looking for freelance for income but having little to no luck still. I’ve gotten the occasional art test or email about being interested but almost all of it falls flat.
My current portfolio can be viewed here: http://www.angieart.com/
I’ll admit that I’m definitely not great at marketing myself, but I have the usual social media accounts and try to be active as much as I can, but I’ve been wondering a lot if my art is even marketable? I don’t know if my style is generally unappealing or just boring. When I do get any interest, most people like the stylized icons on my portfolio. Considering those are about 5 years old now, it makes me question if my skill is the issue or if my art style simply doesn’t appeal to anyone. Would really appreciate some outside perspective on this.
