    @ votreMEDIA: But to answer your question about the scholarships,
    Nope I didn't get any myself, I keep kicking myself for it too because I had some time to do some nice paintings but I was way too lazy
    I was lucky enough to get about half my education funded though on the account that I'm poor and because I worked my ass off in high school
    right now, im really trying to figure out how im gonna pay for my education because my gpa is about 2.8, i dont think i will qualify for any aid because my parents make too much money, and my parents dont support art school so i have a small chance of going there without scholarships or any aid

    gamble away their money until they have none and qualify for aid!

    It's a tough situation you are in. Don't take any courses at Ringling or any other private art school that can be taken at a community college. Your typical foundation art courses and liberal arts credits. These you can pay for yourself by getting a job. If you take these courses very seriously you can improve your art while earning a strong GPA which both will ultimately help you earn more scholarship money. The key here is to show maturity and responsibility so your parents know that their "investment" in you will be appreciated and made the most of.

    I can't speak for your parents, but I would think if you showed them how much work you put in to get good grades and fund your own education, your parents might be more willing to make a deal with you to pay for the major classes at art school.

    That's all I can think of for now, but don't let anyone force you into something you are not passionate about!

    It's difficult, and often completely impossible. They accept about a hundred and ten freshmen, and by sophmore year they want it down to a hundred. So if less than ten people drop from the program, no slots will be available.

    Though tthey will still accept you as a freshmen, and you'll be able to take a lot more electives and work more hours while there.

    Hey there, try scholarships that involve your artwork, make your portfolio completely amazing and perhaps ringling will give you more scholarship money, try on that, look for local scholarships, I was in the same situation you are and I am here right now. I'm here at Ringling, it can be done, nothing is impossible you just have to have faith in it, if plan a can't work, find a plan b, don't give up, if you have to wait a year then wait a year, there is always a way to get to ringling.

    Hey i was curious (sorry im drifting away from the votre topic) how do people tackle quick drawings? as in, youre in a coffee shop, you take your sketchbook out and want to draw people that obviously wont stand still--- what do you do to capture the moment? do you draw a quick skeleton, do you go straight in with the drawing? take your camera out hahaha what do you do? i stuggled for the longest time, at first i wouldnt even draw a skeleton i would just draw what i saw but im a slow drawer so it was horrible. Then i gradually decided to sketch every day in the subway since i take it anyways...i sometimes draw a quick skeleton then draw on top what i could remember... does anyone have a good technique?

    5coop, a type of quick sketch like that could be considered a "gesture" drawing. In figure class we study these.. Google image it and you will find some examples. Basically you sketch the general shape of the person to get the idea of what they're doing in a very short period of time. You can use shapes or skeletons to map it quickly if you'd like.

    You don't have to get too detailed. Not all of us have photographic memory The more you do, the better and faster you'll get!

    hey i just want everyone to know that this thread has been really helpful. For the past 6 months, I have slowly come to realize that my degree in Drawing and Painting at a Texas University will not help me in the real world. I have been interested in attending Ringling (specifically the Illustration department) for some time, and just now have made the choice to attend.

    Most of my questions have been answered by this thread, especially those regarding transfer credits since I will ineviatibly transfer.

    I do have some questions:

    How is the Illustration program? Does it prepare you for a career in which you can draw for a living?

    Can someone compare SCAD to Ringling? How do their programs differ?

    Questin for PirateLord78 Where did you get those statistics for the average debt of a SCAD grad and a Ringling grad? Or if anyone knows where to find those, that would help me and whoever else.

    thanks a lot

    It's quite possibly the best in the country if you want to do realistic, rather than stylized, illustration. And it prepares you for the real world as much as can be hoped of a college program.

    The curriculums will be pretty similar, but Ringling has smaller class sizes and somewhat more exclusive admissions (thus, fewer people who can't draw). Ringling also has a reputation (hard to say if it's true or not) for being more demanding than SCAD and hiring more proficient teachers.

    Hmm... i was thinking, how long would it take to pay back, lets say, 160k in student loans for Ringling? Like for an animator? Concept artist? K thanks!

    You should have no problem keeping your loans under 160k. You can work summers, and to some degree during the year.

    That being said, animators will get starting level wages between 40 and 60k. Cost of living and interest will dictate how long it takes to pay back the loan.

    160k in student loans?! It wouldn't be that much. I only got around 25k in student loans this year and that gave me 4,000 extra (I ended up lowering my meal plan.. made a HUGE difference.). So next year I wont even need that much. Plus next year it will be easier to get scholarships (I was out of school for a year and many scholarships require you to be a current student to apply).

    And don't forget about work-study!

    Can any Ringling student that has graduated tell us if they had to take out loans, if so what kinds of loans, and if it not too personal, what amount of debt they are in because of it? I would like to hear it from the horses mouth, so to speak, the financial reality from some one who has gotten a degree at Ringling.
