what skill are you selling, exactly? graphic design? fontography?
the page was too long, and too graphics heavy, with not enough informative text. I closed it before I had any clue what was happening on it.
what media are you targeting with the page you're linking to? from what I saw, it would be more appropriate for print. try something shorter, but sweeter. Make sure your viewer doesn't have to scroll down (too far) and wait for more than a minute for the first page...or less, maybe.

I have no idea about what typographers look for in a portfolio, but I must say I think it looks relitively clean and the design is consistant. I would like to see all the letters separate (not touching) personally, but thats just me. You can still see they are good clean fonts regardless. :)
BTW the 2nd font is really nice. I like how you flared the tips out a lot- You didn't by chance do that one in roman characters also did you?:D
Hope to see more of your work,:wavey:

Oh, sorry if that was not clear, It looks like the font is done in the russian:shrug:(?) alphabet, I was wondering if you did it in the roman(abcdefghijk...) alphabet too.

No i dont have it in Roman...sorry
