Excellent stuff! Let's keep this year super organized!
I am willing to put my portfolio from last year up here as an example of failed entry.
Here it is: http://marclefevreportfolio.blogspot.ca/
and here's the score sheet: http://img210.imageshack.us/img210/8441/img034r.png
I hope that having an example will help people.

Great to see you started this, shall we list our weakest/strongest parts of our portfolios now? For me worst: room drawings and surprisingly the still lives. best: hands (fyi the last time I applied though was in 2010 so I'm not sure if those are still the worst)
btw I'm thinking of taking a workshop class at max the mutt to help me prepare, anyone been to them/heard if they're any good?
BTW. u sure its portfolio day is going on this year? it says 2011 on the link
Weakest for me; Character design, Room drawings as well.
Best: Life drawings.
We'll wait for Official Lamp (And Lycoris if he wants to join in on the fun) and then pick one section. If we still can't, we randomize it and set a 7 day due date.
I've never been to Max the mutt. I've seen him kind of spamming on conceptart though, not sure if good sign or bad.
The upcoming workshops dont seem all that relevant to animation though and I'm not sure if the price is worth it. with 400 + Hst you could do quite abit. I would just check out whos teaching the lecture you're interested in and weigh the cons.
My weakest: Room drawing
Strongest: Figure drawing (Or at least, I think so)
Though, my biggest problem is breaking into that amazing "4" territory. Didn't get a single one, ha.
Ha! I'm setting my sights on all 4's doubt I'll get it but naught from trying.

Here's what I propose;
One Room drawing by October 27th 12pm (-5 gmt) Or you get KICKED OUT(not really)
All in favour?
AYE! but how loose/finished should it be? btw we should contact sheridan to see if the portfolio day is happening still, cuz the link provided in 1st post was from 2011

Do you think we should also evaluate eachother's work with a scoring system the way sheridan does it? plus comments not just numbers of course

I think that may be pushing it too much. It's a good thing to use while judging the work, but I don't think we need a bunch of numbers. That's time that could be spent drawing, ha.

As for how loose/finished it should be? I think we should pretend we are actually submitting the piece. Too loose and we can't evaluate line quality properly. I lost a lot of marks in line quality and composition, so focus there would be appreciated. The number thing might get distracting but we should keep it in mind for criticism and each of us should have something constructive to say.
Other than that, I've been attending life drawing sessions weekly. Something I think we all should be doing. I know OCAD has one on Wednesday I might give that a shot. I can put together a list of ones available in Toronto if any of you guys are interested.

Welcome aboard Kawaii. I'm wondering how your school year has been so far? I hear art fundies at sheridan is intense.
Hey guys, I just joined in and although I'm late, I'll definitely say AYE to the room drawing.
Please let me in
I think the weakest for me is... everything? Ha ha, I took Art Fundies before and the teachers there were always picky on my proportions, painting, and line quality. Everything else was 'okay.' No, not really, lol. They were super picky on everything but they were great teachers and they helped me out a lot. My strongest used to be life drawing, or I just presume that it used to be. I haven't practiced a lot in months so I'm in big trouble. Hopefully this room drawing project will shed some light on what I need to do.
hey (new) guys, glad you can join in. BTW are we submitting two room drawings or one?
Kawaii and Lycoris: hows the sheridan campus life like? do you know how much is rent around there? its been a while since I've visited.
Can't wait to see everybody's work! I'm ok with picky critiques

Welcome back Lycoris. Of course you can be "in" everyone is welcomed.
Room Drawing - October 27th
We want it in its submitted form, no loose, not "almost finished". Pretend we are submitting this for final assessment. Once Sunday rolls around everyone participating HAS to come up with critique for eachothers work. lets skip the pleasantries.
This guy here -> http://2ndwave.blogspot.ca/ got a perfect score on his score sheet. He only posted his roughs but its a nice jumping off point. I'm noticing they really want to see our construction lines,(Drawing through, horizon, vp) they want to see some imagination between the layouts and the 'extra mile' like drawing the tiles of your floor, or the title of the magazine. Essentially an interesting scene that we "compose". I'm seeing extra points scored for making up our own layouts as well. Anyone having trouble should check out http://www.amazon.com/Setting-Scene-.../dp/0811869873 this book.
As for 2 or 1 I think that should be voted on, I did say 1 because I didn't want to cram our schedule, but I'd vote for 2, since both are kind of dependent on eachother.
