I've made some progress learning Houdini, and I think it's time to make my demo reel. Of course I'm still a beginner, and those super polished artworks on Artstation by artists with 10+ years of experience are out of my reach.
How good does a demo reel/portfolio need to be so you'd consider it "hireable"? Like "this is a junior artist with potential" instead of "lol this guy doesn't know what he's doing."?
