We love seeing and sharing all of the extraordinary work that gets posted on ArtStation everyday. With an ArtStation Pro account, the artwork you post on your ArtStation account is easily also conveniently updated on your portfolio website. This week, our Featured Pro Portfolio interview is with Julien Kaspar.
Julien is a 3D Artist from Munich, Germany and currently in an apprenticeship at the LIGA 01 Computerfilm Studio.
As you can tell from his work, he is passionate about creating interesting characters that tell a story.
What is your one top trick for getting noticed?
What I noticed early on is that no one is going to click on your artwork if the thumbnail is bad. Frame an interesting part of it, don’t try to show the whole thing and make it as eye catching as possible. Also, if it’s just a simple sketch or speed sculpt, then the lighting and composition becomes an even more essential part of the presentation.
Where do you go to find inspiration?
Constantly I’m searching for new and inspirational artworks all across the internet. I try to surround myself with artists and artworks that are better than me/mine and soak as much of that into my own work as possible to improve it and myself. Mostly, I search on ArtStation and Pinterest but also on a lot of other sites like Facebook, DeviantArt, Sketchfab and different forums.
