    Kai Wei Tsao - High School Portfolio

    Hello!

    I'm Kai Wei (or Kray). Here's my portfolio for applying college.
    My main goal is Entertainment Design at Art Center.
    Any kind of critique is more than appreciated.

    Holy shit man, your concept art is beyond amazing for a high school portfolio. The only thing I would try to add to your portfolio is maybe 1 or 2 completed, fully rendered out pieces? I mean you're definitely getting into any art school with that and probably getting the highest scholarship either way haha

    What does that mean "I will stay hungry and foolish?"

    Anyway this is high quality work for someone who is trying to get into college. I think you have one too many pieces in the middle that sort of drag the portfolio out, and they're not that amazing compared to the rest. Apart from that and the grammar and syntax mistakes which are not that important this is a solid portfolio.

    Thank you for your advise and encouragement. I'll surely work on it more.
    But I heard that they don't give scholarships to international students as generouslly, is it true?

    It means that learning will be a never ending story for me.
    Thank you for the advise, I will consider taking something out.

    Wow, I'm pretty sure you'll get scholarship for that. I mean, if your artwork isn't good enough for scholarship, I don't know what is. Just wondering, you said you're already studying at an art school in your portfolio, but you're also a high school student, so does that mean your high school is more focused on art?

    I sure hope to get a scholarship.
    About the school, it's a vocational high school, it's basically high school with technical subject like computer assembling, art in my case.

    Woah, your portfolio is brilliant! I'm sorry I cannot offer any kind of 'constructive' feedback but damn. To my eye it's like this; If whatever school you'll apply to doesn't take you, they must be blind. (My personal favourite is the bottom right one on page 30 btw, it's magnificent )

    Hey Kray, I fixed some typos in your text:

    Pg 3: "I seek my inspiration FROM foreign cities and CULTURES with this project.

    ...I HAVE HAD a lot of INSPIRATION FROM films and video games. I have AN MMO setting in mind.

    Pg 5: "...the ruins are far FROM their former glory, but ARE still a great place for expedition (may want "exploration" instead).

    I was inspired by the SCENERY

    Pg 8: "Inspired by Chinese rock formations, I wanted to put a Western creature into AN Eastern setting to see if it WOULD FIT

    Pg 9: ("In" should be "in")

    Pg 10: ("asian" should be "Asian")

    Pg 16: "A city with a giant tower in the middle as its main hall or landmark"
    ..."This is based UPON European architecture"

    Pg 17: "The inspiration came FROM"
    "non-existant"
    "in concession to the rainy WEATHER, and windows are always sealed by iron bars to prevent THEFT"
    ("its" not "it's")
    ("electrical wires" not "electricity wire")
    (Don't have "they're" and "they are" in the same sentence. Drop the contraction)

    Pg 18: "Bombarded"

    Pg 19: "Sci-fi"

    Pg 20: "Satellite-like"
    "Differentiate it"
    "...transportation FOR a small fee"

    Pg 21: "to traverse such a place" (no "in")

    Pg 22: "extend to the roof for a more memorable and interesting visual experience"
    "looks THE same"

    Pg 24: "close-up"
    "living quarterS"
    "non-existant"
    "cramming INTO it"

    Pg 25: "The costumes have THIS in mind"
    Your art is very nice, good luck with apps! I love the "Tower of Linux".
