    Hey everyone - My name is Rachele and I'm a freshman Computer Animation major. Not sure just how many older students we have this year, but I am 25 and I know of another CA major who is 28. It's not uncommon for older students to attend school here, but we're definitely in the minority. I feel so old in all my classes!

    Well, hopefully all the older students will stop feeling so lonely when I get in.

    I'm 23, but will be 24 if I get accepted into Ringling. I don't have much of a portfolio right now, only sketches and copies from pictures. I'm getting there.

    And I'm opting for either CA or GAD.

    My name is Tyler, I'm 18 and will be applying for Computer Animation at the end of the year.

    I graduated High School already and was accepted as an Illustration major at Ringling last year, but decided to wait a year on account of not being sure what I wanted to do, and also not quite comfortable with going to college yet. In some ways, it was a neccesary decision, but I feel like this extra year will be of great value to me.

    It's great to see this thread up and running and to see some potential future classmates.

    If anyone's interested, my sketchbook was essentially the portfolio I turned in last year to be accepted as an Illustration major.

    See you guys around!

    hi im justin, im gonna be a senior this year, and i see that figure drawing seems to be extremely important but im wondering if it has to be from real life because im pretty sure it would be impossible for me to get any nude person to pose for me while i draw for them

    im also applying for computer animation, ive gotten pretty good at blender 3d, an open source modeling program

    Basically summing up your portfolio: Wow.

    Roughly 25% of Ringling students are twenties or older.

    votre, you might want to check with local community colleges and art centers to see if they offer open drawing sessions with live models. Many will allow high school students to sit in on their sessions. Observational drawing from real life is preferred; even if you can't get a nude model, a clothed one is fine.

    I'm gonna be 18, and straight out of high school! I've been too eager to go to college. Yay learning! (I'm a nerd)

    I'm going to be 18 also. Drawing technique-wise, I think I stand a chance of being accepted. Also my local university has a figure drawing class this September so I hope that will help out.

    Hmm... It is ok for CA majors not having any 3d animating experience prior to entering right? I have done 2d before but not 3d...

    Oh and how is Blender comparable to Maya difficulty wise?

    Most CA majors don't have much/any prior experience, though it would likely be worthwhile to try out 3d animation in order to make sure you actually enjoy it.

    Of the commonly used general 3d apps, Blender is probably the hardest to learn, than Maya, than Lightwave and 3dsMax. That being said, the difference isn't that huge.

    You're work is very nice as well; probably more appropriate for animation. I've got to find subject matter that expresses movement more like yours. Right now I have mostly still objects.

Sorry for the confusion
    ello, im speaking from my experience, so:

    Just have your recommendee write your recommendation on some type of letter head, and send that in. When they say they don't use a standardized form, it means, they don't have a pre-set form for you to use. So you just "make your own" in a sense.

    rawr.

    Goodluck everybodyyyy~ Ringling is great so far! Except the Cove is too far. >.< lol.

    Luckily for you guys, if you get accepted, they are making new dorms, and it will be finished for 2009. Wheeeee, I want dibs there!
