    Master Studies in a portfolio?

    I have a drawing I did as a master study and its some of my stronger work, but I am hesitant to put it in a portfolio since it is still a copy of someone else's work. I am assuming that alone should bar me from putting it in, but I just wanted to double check

    School portfolio or work portfolio?
    If the former, maybe.
    If the latter, no.

    Listen to what the old man says.

    And if you do include it, be sure to properly label it as such (especially if it's not a very well known piece).

    At the end of my last class, as a part of the final portfolio review the teacher pulled the pieces he suggested for portfolio. Being that these are community college foundation classes, I would imagine the goal of 99% of portfolios there is for admission to a university.

    We did a master copy for one of the homework pieces. Prof really liked how the one I made turned out and he pulled it out for portfolio inclusion.

    I didn't think to ask why... My best guess would be, it shows my current level when it comes to that particular technique.

    I'm new to portfolio building, especially the professional one) but I gather portfolios are often tailored towards a specific goal.
