    2014 - Sheridan College (Animation, Illustration and Game Design) Hopefuls

    Hey guys! I decided to go right ahead and firing things up! I decided to kick things off early, perhaps so that instead of just helping each other out on just critiquing each others portfolio pieces, we also help each other study and get up to par to Sheridan's standard.

    I've decided to quote the main part of the last thread for archival purposes, so we can see the portfolios from last year as well. I am also listing some very useful books and resources to study up on when it comes to life drawing, perspective, general layout and composition, storyboarding and the likes.

    If you guys would like I can create a dropbox containing a large amount of learning resources and add you guys to it on request. I was also thinking of personalizing a bit more by making a skype group to accompany this forum as well, I think that would be great because things flow differently in communication with both real-time IMing and forum chat. Well feel free to add me on skype it's the same account name I use on the forums and eventually I will open up a skype group as well.

    Good Luck! Lets all do our best to get into sheridan and draw our asses off!

    Feel free to share any sketches and progress done in preparation and practice for the portfolios for either of sheridan's program's.

    November 17th Sheridan Open House/Portfolio Day

    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.

    I guess I'll pipe up; I'm hoping to apply for 2014! (for one of the 25 international places, haha) Just had another look at all the accepted portfolios from over the past few years and super intimidated, but fingers crossed

    @mud well you can still post up the stuff you do in preparation! so you can do some of the stuff and give it a go on a pseudo folio and I am pretty sure there are many people including myself who would be happy to critique it.

    @Scrii that's pretty impressive! I took a look at your stuff and to calm you up a bit I can most definitely say that your work is already pretty good and totally on the level Sheridan expects but that should not get you complacent, work hard and do your best! From what I can see so far is that your characters are looking pretty solid, I'd really like to see some layout and environments from you as that is what usually brings down peoples' scores. Even though the character drawings are worth a lot people seem to neglect room drawing and that should be something that should be practiced just as much. I should also be less hypocritical and do just the same.

    I guess I perhaps should introduce myself too! If you have not met me over the site, I am Danny, I practically lived in the UAE most of my life and well there is major lack of quality art education there. Just like most budding artists I am mostly self-taught although I was not serious about taking art as a career and it was mostly a pipe dream at the eleventh grade although it slowly started to begin becoming more really after I slowly discovered what it really took to become a great artist in the industry. Unfortunately this was at the beginning of my senior year, so I was scurrying to practice my drawing skills, I improved rather significantly though I guess you can say that I needed way more time. I am still struggling with the time constraint to improve and hope its enough.

    Currently I am working on this character for the Sheridan portfolio, I was think of making him more functional, animate-able, and rotatable by the end of the summer as well as get my life drawings up to par. There is also the issue with the layout, so lots and lots of thumbs.

    Scrii I love your art! Lots of fluidity and movement in it. I like the characters too, human and animal. I'd like to see what you come up with for your portfolio and such!

    Danny you have definitely improved and will keep doing so because you have goals and passion for practicing Nice to see. Keep up the good work! It is really unfortunate that the art education there is weak... But I am glad that in our time we can look at a world's worth of opportunities, not just our immediate surroundings

    @the-muddy again such kind words , I learnt and lived off the sea of information from the internet and I am glad I have it!

    @RaeOwlOne Glad to have you on-board ! APW is a great opportunity to learn, take advantage of it and draw everyday and any time you can. I was thinking of making some kind of overly dramatic actor of some sort for my character xP so I tried to give him a dramatic kinda *cough*sassy pose*cough*

    Just to mention again feel free to add me over skype, my username is the same as my CA username. I will setup a group for all of us on skype.

    Does anybody want to kick this off with some hand-drawing exercises we could have a couple done by the next Thursday and have a critique session. We also could create a mock-up portfolio as an objective by November to ready it up for the portfolio review happening at Sheridan by that time. Doing this will most definitely help us with coming portfolio and allow us more flexibility with what pieces we could pick out for the final portfolio .

    I forgot to mention, me and DeerHooves are actually roomies, so yeah.

    Ah that must be tons of fun I really hope I get to go to Sheridan in 2015 and have animation/illustration roomies in a place near the campus xD That'd be the life~~~
    And great idea for the hands. I will try to get some practice for that done as well

    Kamikaze & the-muddy, thank you both!! (sorry I was overseas until recently) I definitely need to work on more environments and layouts but I keep forgetting how important it is both in animation and for the portfolio itself so thank you for the reminder And I totally understand about having a lack of relevant art education options in the country/area, it's pretty much the same here in Australia and everything is just so far away from here, haha. Really love the angles and general design of your character so far though, I'm looking forward to seeing how he evolves - and of course to everyone else's work too!

    I am also applying to 2014. I have started working on my portfolio a bit. Can anyone recommend a website for me to create a simple artist page, to put all my sheridan portfolio work?

    Looking forward to seeing all the art you guys are working on!
