I'm new to the forum experience. I would love any helpful tips on how to use forums properly in regards to my illustration work. I am currently in the the midst of rehashing my portfolio towards publishing work as in the past I have only received jobs that were handed to me. Am i better of posting progress in my portfolio and asking for advice as it progresses? or should i be dabbling in competitions, exercises and other discussions. Please go easy on what I imagine are somewhat ignorant questions... but I am well... ignorant when it comes to forums.
