    2013 - Sheridan College (Animation and Illustration) Hopefuls

    Decreed the "Harvard of Animation" Sheridan's Animation program has a reputation for pumping out talented artists. Their Illustration and Animation programs are top notch and demand your full ass if you want to get in. So lets all stress about it together! A simple topic meant for 2013 applicants.


    Important Dates
    November 17th Sheridan Open House/Portfolio Day
    February 1st Due date for Application through OCAS for equal consideration
    February 22, 2013. Due Date for Mailing in Animation Portfolio (Must have a time stamp no later than this date)
    February 25-29th Animation Portfolio Submission due dates (In Person)
    March 1st-2nd Illustration Portfolio Drop Off dates(in person)



    FAQ
    How does the marking work?
    ( Click to show/hide )
    According to the coordinator, 8 different people, specializing in each section, look and evaluate your portfolio. So there are no 'hard' markers or 'easy' markers. All 8 of them are trouncing through your portfolio. So to break this down further, there are professors who specialize in storyboard that look at your storyboards, there are professors that specalize in characters, that look at your characters, etc, etc. And at the end, all 8 look at your personal section.

    How many available spots are there?
    ( Click to show/hide )
    150 as of year 2013.

    How much applicants are they expecting?
    ( Click to show/hide )
    It varies, but they normally get over 1000.

    International students.
    ( Click to show/hide )
    They only have room for 25.
    International is OUTSIDE Canada. provinces outside Ontario don't count.

    When will I hear about my acceptance/rejection?
    ( Click to show/hide )

    If you're accepted
    you'll hear it first in your Sheridan Email. from March 25th-April 1.
    If you're inside toronto, you should expect the acceptance package April 1st-4th (there are a few anomalies though, so don't fret too much)

    If you're rejected.
    You wont hear about it in your Sheridan email, you'll see it in the applicant status sub-menu around march 25th-April 1 You can find out if you're wait-listed or outright rejected, here.

    Or you'll receive a letter April 1-5th (inside toronto) about it.

    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.

    I think its decided then guys. Room drawing.

    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
    Also we should list what our weakest evaluation criteria were so when we critique each other (or someone else new comes along) we can really zoom in on our weaknesses. for me is: composition

    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.

    No worries, I'll call Sheridan soon as Monday rolls around and get dates from the source. I checked their calender I don't know if they're having a portfolio thing. The open house might be what Mistybean was referring to, if so, I got the date from their calender.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you, Dunnstar
    omg yes! its soo demanding! I've even had a few "screw school" moments! a few of my friends dropped out of the program but I want to get better so I think I'll stick with it! My weakest is definetely life drawing I've never done it before so learning is going to be interesting. As for school overall I honestly can't wait till this semester is over I have some pretty picky teachers like Lycoris mentioned! I think my strongest is character? but it still needs work xD
