Depends on who you're dealing with. I'd hire you.
I know I'm not everybody's cup of tea, too, but I'm committed to WYSIWYG living. If I'm going to grate on a potential client or freelancer I hire, better we all know it up front.

All joking aside - Tiff made an excellent point, which I believe we touched on in the communication style thread over in the coffee shop - Better clients and freelancers know what they're working with and whether they enjoy that BEFORE a contract starts than getting a scary surprise some time down the line

Sad to see you don't take criticism well.
Aron, you are wrong again, I agreed on Petra's and Rene's comments about my text presentation and I will change it, isn't it accepting criticism? I do accept critics, but I don't accept your arguments, My PF is not the negative factor here... it's the lack of clients in the field of work I practice, or the money they are paynig.
If my portfolio was close to be mediocre, I would have heard it from some clients, It never happened and honestly I hear the opposite quite often
Nobody's doomed. If I had the money I'd hire you all for 3 months every summer, take you all to my island (with children, spouses, cats, dogs, everything) and give a new meaning to "paid holiday".
While everyone else is drawn to the Matte Paintings, I am struck by the 3d work. Pascal, you are missing out on other avenues of residual income. Drastically. If you happen to enjoy the 3d side of your work then you really need to check into Daz Studio and Poser. Between your artistic ability and your 3d modeling ability, you possess exactly what you need to create a decent residual income through those two programs plus Blender and ZBrush.
I fully understand what you have pointed out with storyboarding, as you are correct. Storyboards are about emotion and storyline. The deeper details such as perfecting a helicopter are done by someone else, not the storyboard creator.
