A great first impression is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting comm requests.
That’s why we’ve made it incredibly easy to look good!
There are currently 7 key ways to personalize your profile (and we’ll be adding more customization options very soon!), all located under the “Profile” tab in the left hand menu of your artist dashboard:
Try to match this with your most well known username (ie. use your Twitter username).
Note that changing your username also changes your profile URL.
2. Display name
This is how your name will be displayed. We recommend using your username and adjusting any capitalization here.
3. Profile picture
A profile picture of your art, with a face is best (your art > your logo).
- 250px x 250px
- Image or gif
Note that we currently don’t support custom cropping so please make your profile picture square (or it will be center cropped for you).
4. Profile banner
This banner will be resized for various screen sizes and will also be turned into the image in your Directory card, and the background colour of your nav bar. Choose something that represents you well.
- 1920px x 1080px
- Image or gif
- COMPRESSED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE
Note that we currently don’t support custom cropping so please make your profile banner rectangular (or it will be center cropped for you). Directory banner is 16:9
Good things to note: who you are, your specialties, languages, main software, location - don’t make your bio too long or people will just not read it altogether.
6. Work Queue
If you have a Trello or other public work board, this is where to share it! This can help potential clients set proper expectations of when you’ll be available next / where they are in your queue.
Our built-in public display of your VGen work queue is coming soon~
If you have a separate Link in Bio site with all of your links, we recommend you add your most important 3-5 other links to help potential clients focus on your commissions and portfolio.
That said, you’re always welcome to use your VGen profile as your main link directory, and if this is the case, be sure to include all of your links.
Links from the following websites will automatically display icons!
Holy moly your profile's looking bea-u-ti-ful!
Now let's go ahead and add some commission services!
