I am going to tell you what manley has told me. Make the your portfolio look like the above links. That is what will get you in. Your still having problems with anatomy with your character works. Second, your not versatile at all. You will need to show environments and Vehicles from any period of time, whatever gets you inspired; it should be everything. Do life drawing, draw from imagination and do master studies. Color is weak, you need to work on that. Design is another thing you should consider working as well. Explore this site thoroughly. It has alot to offer. Go to turtleart.net. That's your competition. The list there gets longer and longer. Plus you are competing against other aspiring students from around the world. Understand that, bust your ass and have fun most of all. I stay in vegas too. Glad to see more vegas people up on the boards.
