How's my portfolio??-Applying to Ringling and USC
Hey guys, I'm planning to apply for RSAD and USC among many other colleges and planning to major in Computer Animation. I am a high school senior and I will mainly focus on Character Animation.
Here's my online portfolio: http://daiaenna.carbonmade.com/
Pleasseee, critique harshly. I do know that my original art and style is lacking, and I am working on that now. I am trying art with more dynamic poses and attempting to stray away from the Japanese-anime style due to the advice I got from one of the current Animation USC student.
I also have trouble deciding between the two colleges RSAD and USC. I've seen USC senior thesis and they're... well... not what I expected. Though, I am extremely impressed by RSAD students' works. But it's far away from Hollywood and I'm afraid opportunities to get internships for studios such as Pixar, Dreamworks, etc. will be less available...

Your life drawings & still lifes are really solid. Avoid submitting anything anime-ish (a lot of schools won't even accept it).
You'll get in without any trouble, and I suspect you'll get a scholarship as well.

Yep, all the pieces in the drawing section and the last one in the digital section.
Maybe try doing some self portraits? They're a staple of student portfolios, and show a lot of proficiency (if done well). Not sure if animation-departments are looking for it, but diversifying your mediums a bit couldn't hurt.
Good luck! You're gonna do great.
