    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!

    Hey thanks a lot! Yeah i also got in contact with Amy Fischer so she was kind enough to link me to some presets so i dont waste time

    Yeah they told me about the new dorms when i visited sounds awesome although the dorms i saw in the main building were not bad at all! Maybe the lounge being next to the rooms will be a little loud---hard to sleep at night haha.

    Hey did anyone write their essay for the application?250 word minimum is WAAAAY too little to understand a student. I mean all we can pretty much say is "yes (2 sentences) no (2 sentences) thank you (no period or it reaches the limit) " but obviously they receive a lot of applicants so it makes sense.

    I picked number 4 although its probably likely to change by Sept 1st, i already wrote it but I'm in the 320 region after cutting half of it down I'd be curious to see some accepted examples although they dont play such a crucial role and i wouldn't want to be influenced by it. So hahah never mind...sorta...

    i havent had much experience in using maya but i will be next year when i start my second year in this technical vocational program that i do with my school.
    What i do know is that maya's interface is very hard to get used to in the beginning but that is pretty much what you should expect when using 3d applications, which is why there are so many keyboard shortcuts, but yeah, blender is a very good choice if you are just trying to get a feel of what the development of 3d project is like. Blender is open source so its free and there is a huge community of people constantly releasing new content for it, and there are new versions available every few months. It is also compared to lightwave 3d a lot because of its interface, which is pretty nice and easy to use. also, blender has a game engine and there are a lot of tutorials online to help you get started. i have a game im working on actually called "Mercenary's Quest" you can check it out on youtube if you want, just to see what type of quality can be created with blender.

    basically, if you are interested in 3d modeling, animation, game development but you cant afford mainstream software, o you dont wanna deal with the big ass watermark that is printed on all of your renders then download blender

    i wouldnt say that blender is the hardest to use, im only 17 now and i can produce some pretty high quality models/animations and renders and i never took a class. i selftaught myself with tutorials and getting help from the online community

    nice sketchbook, ilove your figure drawings.
    i have a question tho, i live in the detroit area, and i have access to the D.I.A and im wondering if it would be a good idea to sketch sculptures there since i have no naked models to work with
