    It's easier to learn anatomy from a nude model, so you should definitely seek it out if you can, but colleges understand that not everyone has access to a nude model.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, but usually Figure Drawing means nude (or almost nude) drawing of a model.
    "Clothed Models" are mostly portraits, and they often don't show one's drawing level (in particular, knowing anatomy) if compared to figure drawings.
    I guess they've asked for the 1st version. But why wouldn't you ask them yourself? ::

    uh, wut? anatomy, sure, but drawing level? i think any drawing anyone does and spends significant time on would show one's "drawing level". keep in mind that art and dbz are very separate things, in that colleges don't scan prospective students with a scouter to see what their "drawing level" is, even if it be greater than 9000.

    haha :lol: nice dbz reference but on to the topic, people want to see how well your anatomy skills are as they are the basic, as to the level they know once they see it, but it all depends on the student, some people cheat and just copy shit from books to get in school but once they get in and go to class they get owned really bad.

    Guess who'll get a better job offer at Warner Brothers - the guy with a good figure drawing portfolio or the one without it?
    Forget about college requirements - think what YOU need all this for.

    The portfolio that gets you into school and the one you should have leaving it are two VERY different things.

    Elwell, absolutely agree. However, - you should start building your portfolio as early as you can - to show the progress.
    Besides, my subjective point is based on knowledge of two different art studying systems. In Russian art schools (especially in St.Petersburg) requirements are higher and the contest for being accepted is quite high as well. So here they want to see your portfolio only to decide whether to allow you to take exams (in drawing, painting, etc) - or not. Though portfolio won't let you INTO the school, at least it will let you being "considered".

    Again, no matter where your school is, and no matter their requirements (or no requirements at all) - you should build your portfolio day and night, knowing that you do this - first of all - for Yourself (or as your mommy used to say, "for your own good, my dear!")
