Short answer: INDIVIDUAL WORK HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
You can use your showcases in a number of different ways, from showcasing case studies, individual work with variations, entire comics, and even written work.
In 90% of cases...
We recommend using your showcases to display individual works: ie. NOT 1 showcase named “Chibis” with 5 different chibis, but 5 different showcases with 1 image each.
Visitors often don’t like to click. So the most amount of work they can preview without needing to click is the best way to showcase your work.
Having individual work for each showcase also means you'll be easier to find in our global discovery and can use tags more effectively.
When to use as “folder”?
In 10% of cases, like if…
- You have a “package” commission that you did for a single client and want to showcase the entire order as a case study, or
- You offered a YCH every holiday and you don’t want your entire feed being 20 of the same YCH
it may make sense to showcases for a number of different works.
