1. Save your sketchbooks. They might be cringey now, but you’ll be thankful that you will be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.
2. If you want to work in animation, you’ll want to really pinpoint what exactly you’d like to be doing. There are so many possibilities in the field.
3. Make sure your portfolio is catered to what you want to do. If you hate doing background work, don’t fill your portfolio with backgrounds, for example.
