    High School Portfolio 2.0

    Hey guys, i'm a junior in high school working hard to prepare a portfolio for the Entertainment Design program at Art Center. I know it's an extremely competitive program and i'm still really young but i know i'm really passionate about my work and i want to do it for a living.

    But anyway, on to my work, about half is unrelated from the portfolio project and the rest is designed with the intent of following a narrative i'm working on, so i'll try to keep labels on the related and unrelated work. If you wanna see the specs for the portfolio it's on art center's website (

    The basic narrative for the art center portfolio is a blitzkrieg alien assault, followed by a vicious struggle for resources and concluding with a final desperate counterattack. It takes place in a futuristic society, with plenty of robots and political backstory to go along with it. I want to do a lot of environments, seeing as it's a global invasion and everything is so much different in the future, in addition to a bunch of character and vehicle sketches and model sheets.

    I'm aware that a lot of it is pretty rough/unfinished as I'm really not getting as much time as i would like to just sit down and draw, so keep that in mind.

    ***PLEASE*** be as critical as you can about the designs. Tell me what designs you like, which ones you don't, which compositions are doing well or what i could do to make them better, etc. Rendering will come with time, but the designs are what's really important in my opinion right now, so let me what i can do to make them better!

    cover for the portfolio as of yet. the guy on the left is a survivalist left over from the invasion and the right is a particularly cruel species of aliens.

    lil bit later in the design process. these are a couple of the alien species by the way, each with a bit of a different specialty region. the left would obviously be woods, middle would be oceans, and the right would be mining/quarries and such as the main resource they're here for on Earth. personalities are generally cunning for the left, savage for the middle, and ruthless for the right.
