"Thank you for sharing your portfolio with me. I appreciate the opportunity to consider your work, but I won't be pursuing representation at this time. I welcome you to query again should your visual style evolve in new ways or should you have a book dummy to share, rather than samples/portfolio alone."

“I had a chance to dip into your query, and ultimately decided that I'm not a match for this project and so will be stepping back from consideration. Thank you for the opportunity to consider your work, and I wish you the best of luck with this and future projects.”
