I was looking for a thread with people's portfolios when they applied art school but I couldn't find one ... SO I MADE ONE =D
I just wanted to see what kind of works people send in and I know that levels vary even within same art schools due to admission factors. However it'd be great to see what people came up with when they were my age =D
So if you guys don't mind please either link me or attach pics of your portfolio, and I will eagerly drool at them OH and tell me what school *and maybe major?) you applied to just for the sake of my curiosity.
Write the name of the school, major applied for, and what year you applied, scholarship $(optional) <- thanks Justin =D
Check out Current Portfolios. If you guys want to post your current portfolio like some have already here, please put it there

I know the first post in this thread shows some pieces from an accepted portfolio into the calarts character animation program --> http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=125887
A lot of portfolios are heavily based upon figure drawing and observational stuff but it kind of depends on which college you're looking for because each one has different requirements.
You know, this actually is not a bad idea for a thread. If I get accepted I'll put mine up. I think setting up Guidelines in the first post in bold would be good though; like "Write the name of the school, major applied for, and what year you applied. This should compensate for the variety of portfolios between schools and majors.
also optional; put how much scholarship you gotted :X

THANKS and you have an awesome portfolio +_+ I really liked your figure drawings.
I'm entering my sophomore year as a Computer Animation major at Ringling, and I got the annual presidential scholarship for $10k going in my freshman year (fall of 2007). Here's the portfolio I submitted.

Nice saint! I remember those, but looking at other portfolios makes me sad... I was told by the director of the program I'm submitting to that "hmm, about 40 pages should be fine."
COLORED PENCILS!!!!!?!?!?!?! wtf, thats insane. i think I would die lol. I tried to do a simple still life with colored pencils and after about 20 minutes i wanted to burn them all in my fireplace lol.

And yes... Ever since that piece I've been wary about using colored pencils. Like I said, never again. *shudder*
Great idea for a thread.

OMG! You are amazing! I'm glad I looked at that, you've inspired me to try harder with my pencils. I was just wondering what kind you use, I might want to dig some up.

Great thread, I'll be lurking here. I've been tearing through colleges like mad, and I'm eyeing Ringling, so I want to see what other people submitted to get in.
Sorry i didn't know. i Just fixed it

Prisma colors FTW! Also make sure you buy some clear blender pencils. They really help everything to meld together and look much more opaque.
