"I want to" a.) "work in the industry" b.) "hired by a company"

I just wanted to remind folks that drawing titties all the time is great and all (no, seriously, I love titties just as much as the next guy), but if you have aspirations of working in any industry or for any company, especially in the mainstream, you CANNOT --repeat-- CANNOT have a portfolio full of just one thing. Doesn't matter what that one thing is: titties, cars, backgrounds, characters. It's like applying for any other job. Sure, you may have the fundamental requirements to fulfil one duty (ie. making coffee at Starbucks), but they're measuring you against other applicants with a wider repertoire of skills. Sure, you CAN make coffee, but why have a person who can only make coffee when you can have someone who can also bake scones?

The only industry that will take a portfolio full of tits is the hentai industry, which is like non-existent this side of the Pacific. And even then, you'll be competing against the likes of Tony Taka, Tsukasa Jun, Shunya Yamashita, and other amazing, well-rounded artists. The art industry is VERY competitive and, unless you're willing to be the best artist you can be (which means letting go of crutches like only drawing one body type, one perspective, one gender, etc.), you will NOT make it.

This isn't meant to be discouraging, but encouraging to those who really want to push themselves. I encourage all artists to branch out. Try new things. Really push for achievement in all areas. Study, practice. Even if you don't want industry work and just want to draw titties all day; trust me, dude, your ability to draw other things will greatly improve your ability to draw titties.

I really like your articles that you post, they are always very informative, I find people ask me to draw them THE ONE THING I hate to draw, which is of course the obvious, but I always hated drawing them.
All the things you mention are generally true, ESPECIALLY the thing at the very end, drawing other things will greatly improve your ability to draw tits, and whatever comes to mind. Also having an expanded portfolio is a great way to show what you are good at and what needs work. Thanks for the tips.
