THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX: What other uses do you guys see for the CGPORTFOLIO?


#21

I’d like a feature whereby the artist could check a category under which each pic falls, so you could search by ‘genre’, such as

‘humorous’
‘bots’
'landscape ’
‘character concepts.’

Or something like that…

Another thing is an ‘if you like this artist, you’ll love THIS one’ feature. It may be difficult to implement though.

I wish also we could add documents to our porfolios.

PDF Documents like contracts, resumes & shot lists.

Another cool thing it would be to be be able to add animations to the portfolios.

I like Kyena / Natascha’s original idea of adding a section where one can post their own tutorials and the like in a nice, organized fashion. As with the main forums, the issue of “Where can I find tutorials?” is going to pop up. My suggestion is to somehow give any Tutorial posted to a tutorial section some sort of automatic “tutorial” tag if possible and forcing the author of the tutorial to enter keywords / tags before they are able to submit / post their tutorials.

Cheers,

To add to that.

I would like to see at a quick glance how many tutorials this person has written.
And maybe some feedback on them (maybe with a star system).

I would also add a section called
"The Trophy Room" where a person can post how many awards he/ she has won.

For example:

John Jones:
1 Academy Award
3 CG Spotlight awards
1 Alias Student animation Awards

Dude, the Martian Manhunter really is good at everything.

I’d be in favor of an awards system whereby if someone writes a popular tutorial, they get free CGSociety membership, or a discount at the cgstore, or somesuch.

It’s a cool idea to collect that sort of metadata on the person… like, the most popular threads that they have started, their most popular art pieces, etc.


#26

To add to that bonedaddy, I would create a point based system,
where a person can earn point by winning an award/ posting a tutorial.

The points can be used for discounts on certain products.

ecasu

This is vital - Even if it is simply to distinguish between WIP and Final images.

EDIT: Actually it isn’t vital at all… I’m still relatively new to the site and didn’t realise you could link images to the WIP forums… kind of negates the need for a WIP section in the portfolio doesn’t it :D… and leave it for what its for… a …uhhhh portfolio :slight_smile:
