Hi, I'm Rob Prior and I'm an Illustrator and a Director and now, I'm going to talk to you about how to get a job in Manga. But, better to put it this way. How to get a job as an artist in general because it's about the exact same thing. Whether you're doing Manga, whether you're doing photo realism, whatever it is you're doing as an artist and an Illustrator, this is the basics on what you do to get a job in it. The very first thing that you're going to want to do is put together a portfolio. Your portfolio needs to consists of art that you've done so you can show what it is, whatever publisher you go to, your ability as an artist. Now, if you happen to be a writer or any of that, you can show your script and your script breakdowns. When you start to show your work, if you are a writer or you have something that you can show that you can break down an illustration from written word, so you can either get a script or again, like I said, you can write your own and would have descriptions of what's going to be on there. Then, as an artist what you're going to do is you're going to illustrate that showing the publisher that you're going to that you know what your'e doing. Not only do you want to make sure that you can break a script down, but you also have to have a portfolio. In this particular instance here, this is a page from one of my old portfolios that show different things from comic pages. And it shows different styles that I'm able to do. That's what you need to get a job as a Manga Illustrator, as an Illustrator in general. I'm Rob Prior and take a look for my movie coming out in the theaters called No Turning Back from Silver Lining Media Group. Thanks.
