    Ringling (and other art school portfolio)

    I have about 2 weeks until I send this thing in... (applying for Ringling Computer Animation)

    I am aware of some problems as I have been running around asking for help like nobody's business. I have 15 hours of life drawing next week to try and work out the weak pieces. Plus 2 days of zoo drawing coming up which I hopefully will get a couple nice drawings from...

    so hit me- how the hell can I make this better. Things to take out, get in. all comments will be greeted with much love.

    ok PZ great work i like you stuff. since you have a dead line and i know how it is with wanting your portfolio to be the best it can be. cause i too am sending mine out to art center at the end of this month.

    here it comes PZ

    1 - is that a sp? looks good, i like the hatching you did it is very nicely done. now the problems that i see are some basic structure of the head, your eyes are to big and the left is bigger than it would really be. also your mouth looks like it is straight on and not wrapped around the jaw. your neck seems to be squashed slightlty too. that is really all i see that i think you could improve on. i hope that wasn't to discouraging i just know how it is when you don't get people to be objective, it is good work

    2 - your gestures are really good i like them alot i don't see anything wrong with them.

    3 - the guy in the chair has some praportion issues that need to be addressed. in my opion i would try not to include figure drawings that had obvious issues in them. i do think you should include figures, just make sure they are you absolute best ones to date.

    4 - the rest looks fine to me i would just try to clean up your sketches a little just to make them more clear to what it is that you were interested in when you drew them at the time. the painting is really nice i like your colour choice

    great work PZ i hope i wasn't to rough, just trying to help you out that is all so please don't go throw away your drawings. good luck and post more if you want help.

    -Jesse

    j.mac - thank you so much... definitely not too rough, and thanks for such an in-depth critique. Exactly what I needed... more self portraits will be done this week!

    ok and I have been talking to one of my teachers about this... I think I should have something in there that shows progress from an idea to a final piece.

    I have a sketchbook sketch that I made into a painting and a black and white 2d composition. My teacher really thinks I should put the progress and final for the 2d composition in the portfolio. I have no idea if either of these fit in.

    sorry for the bad pictures but you all get the idea...

    .PZ. - ok cool! i have to agree with your teacher schools love to see that you know how start and finish a project so including the thumbnails all the way to a comp is a good idea. i owuld probably just do one maybe two but don't get carry away. Also don't put anything in your portfolio just for the sake of having it in.

    ok time crit...

    1 - the painting is a great concept!it isn't a very strong piece though. the initial sketch is great but with the painting it doesn't carry over the feeling that you have in the drawing.

    2 - the 2d design one is a good one "imo" that would be something i would include in my portfolio. really shows a good process from start to finish.

    there you go .PZ. post more if you have anything else you want to be looked

    bio and j.mac - thank you so much. I still have this week to try and get substitutes for the not so good ones. but now that I look at them again. there are definitely some ones to toss. yikes thank you thank you thank you

    pvrhye- Nope, definitely not high school. this last year was spent doing nothing but trying to get good enough to get accepted to ringling. I am currently a student in the art fundamentals program at Sheridan college in Oakville, Ontario.

    Hey there PZ. Thought I'd share with you a little bit of input.
    I'm currently applying to RSAD as well. My intended major is CA. I wanted to mail out my app package mid november, but had a death in the family I had to deal with, so now I will be sending it out on the 11th... Which is basically just the day when my slides/artwork is returned from the Photolab.

    I did PreCollege at RSAD over the summer, and they hammered a lot into us about portfolios... So I hope some of this helps you.

    1) Figure drawing is a huge plus, it's great that you got that They want to see how you do study, and capture form. So include at least 4 to 6 quick drawings, like some of your better gestural drawings, for instance.

    2) Do some hand studies of your own hand, if you havn't already. I know it's cliched as hell to have hand studies in a portfolio, but it's just a really good subject to show your ability. Hold objects in some, and try to arrange a series in a page in a way that looks good. I also suggest spending a bit of time on one shading it, showing light source. Like I said, very typical, but this is what they've told me at Portfolio day and at PreCollege.

    3) Definitely include some of the drawings on colored paper, it's a really good way to livin up a drawing.

    4) As far as the 2D design goes... I'd be careful. I questioned a friend that is a Junior at RSAD about including some storyboards, and he told me to stay away from them, and again reiterated "get as much life/figure drawing as possible". I suggest just using your best judgement in this situation.

    All your stuff looks pretty good man, I wish you luck. One more note... They told us at RSAD that Portfolio is the first and most important thing, and the next is your essay. So make sure you write something swell, heh...

    You're going to Sheridan? In high school I was really intent on going there but never applied. Their animation program is pretty famous, no?

    Are the other parts of their art department just as strong?

    Sheridan? Congratulations!

    PZ I really like your work espicially your technique. I'm quite happy to see you have understand of dark and light, although you may want to work on lightsourcing and such more. but nonetheless good stuff!

    I like your gestures as well, keep them to a minimum however

    I cant offer any great adivce as Dominie_Dirtch but I too am applying for next fall. I haven't sent in my slides yet however, due to my nack of wanting to have a FINISHED FINISHED portfolio. I think I'm stretching my limit

    I lvoe your color work, be proud, its good.

    I would recommend doing a self portrait study, in the mirror, for as long as you can. OUtline it in contour then work on shade and 9include gesture, so smile or a bit etc Good stuff man

    good luck

    when you decide your pieces make sure you put quality over quantity.

    Holy shit. I love these forums, everyone in my side of the art world is involved in conceptart, I swear...

    Dude, I was still sporting the monk cut right up until last week, it was grown down to my ears. I had to cut it for a funeral. I would have let it keep on growing though, haha...

    I agree with the prints or slides things as well, admissions hate it when you submitt a disc full of Jpegs... Just doesn't look as professional.

    Heh, thanks Ben, but only 2 of those went in my portfolio, I actually have a whole new set of 18 pieces that I'm sending out to RSAD. When you sending in? Or have you already? Anyways, good luck man, cool to run into you.

    Indeed. I have a friend who did PreCollege at CalArts, pretty intense program. I checked out your deviant stuff, the head/skull digital illustration is excellent man, I'm glad to hear you've kept on track with your art. I'm filming a movie at Christmas, and getting a WACOM finally... Once I have that, I'll be posting here on CA like freakin mad. As it is now, it's a pain in the ass to scan my drawings on my old shitty SCSI scanner... heh
