I am a Game Art and Design student working towards my Bachelor's degree of Science in Game Art and Design. I have some drawings and digital works
saved throughout my drawing pads and folders, but I want to organize them into a website portfolio as well as potential commission work to help market
myself for after I graduate and for potential projects to build on my portfolio while I'm still in school.
I have never done web design completely, however I did help work on the back end of Joomla as a graphic admin through a gaming clan, so I am familiar
with 65% of their templates and I would feel most comfortable learning everything about Joomla for my website.
I need expert advice and guidance as I have no idea where to start. With all the multitude of hosting sites available, I don't even know where to
start. I started with google as a basis for my search and looked up the best hosting sites for artists and this is what I got:
Top 5 Hosting Sites for Artists
Are any of these good?
Here are some things that I need immediately and things I plan on doing in the future:
1. Uploading medium to High Resolution images and renderings, some as high as 1920x1200 or possibly higher.
2. Uploading short video sequences (8-10 seconds) of objects rendered in 3DS Max. (Times will increase in the future as complexity grows)
3. Portfolio-capable section that showcases my work in such a way as to promote my work to potential employers, either paid or internships.
4. Potential store section to purchase some of my artwork or commission new work
Software I currently have:
Adobe master collection CS4
3DS Max 2011
I would love to buy Zbrush for my work, but I don't have the money, and my 3DS software is an educational version through the school, so it has an
I don't mind paying for a host if it is going to have unlimited bandwidth and upload capability for the future, but I don't want to just pick any and
get screwed either. I have to get this started now as I am a senior and I should graduate by spring/summer of next year, so I want to create a digital
portfolio to mirror my original artwork portfolio.
