    Red face Accepted Portfolios?

    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

    edit: Great idea Justin! I know some people don't think looking through everyone else's portfolio is something good to do but I did it last year and it really put things into perspective, helped me gauge myself, and served as a great source of inspiration. Not to mention the work of all those talented CalArts applicants over on Animated Buzz really scared me to pieces and made me realize I had to get my stuff together and work my butt off if I wanted to even stand a chance.

    CalArts Character Animation BFA for Fall 2008
    This was my portfolio for CalArts Character Animation (in that order :P)
    The biggest thing I had was on legal sized paper so I didn't want to send it in a nice portfolio case that would overshadow them, plus those cost money. I just sent them in a purple paper duotang folder with a masking tape/sharpie label... they didn't seem to mind, lol.

    Great idea!

    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.

    Aww, man, you're making me blush.

    The car/house I did with Prisma colored pencils(NEVER AGAIN!), the three square self portraits and teapot are done in oil paint, and that terrible collage piece is ink, colored pencil, and random magazine cut-outs. I think the graphite pieces are pretty easy to spot.

    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."

    Yeesh, Justin, that sounds intense! But I'm sure you'll get through it. You're talented and motivated.

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

    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.
