I've just recently completed a BFA at my local art university, but I'm really considering going for a BAA in Illustration at Sheridan.
It's been a while since I've had to put together a portfolio application for a school, and I was wondering something... It says on the website not to work off of photos, but in the portfolio requirements it says I can include a certain number of original works. I use photo reference for a lot of my illustration work. What should I do? Do they just want generic things like still-lifes and model drawings? And are they only looking for traditional media? I work with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop a little bit.
Thanks for any advice!
Hi. I graduated from that program a few years ago. My portfolio had life drawing based off of photos because I didn't have access to life drawing. Anyways as long as its not blatantly obvious its from photos you'll be fine. It doesn't really matter what media you're using but I would try to add some variety so its not all digital work. You just need to show that you have skill in your portfolio so leave the abstract stuff at home.
Do you have a link anywhere to your portfolio (or even sample work you did from Sheridan)? I'm having a hard time finding good examples of accepted portfolios.
