    I've put up a couple drawings of my cats that I managed to do before they moved away or started walking on my paper

    Any comments on them would be more than welcome.

    They look good! I'd really focus on building structure lines on your cats to show some more weight and the structure lines also show your understanding of the cat which I'm pretty sure is one of the criteria they're marking the life drawings on.


    Also, can I get some critiques on these life drawings? Are they proportionate, gestural, etc.? I think they are but then again, I can't see from everyone's perspective

    Hey SoSaucy, thanks for the feedback. I'm trying to get my head around the amount of structure that they want without obscuring the actual line work so i will keep trying

    I love your life drawings, they're looking great. Only problem is with the first one the leg in the background looks like it may be a bit out of proportion, the thigh part is a bit short maybe? Other than that you've really got the sense of weight and depth in the ribcage and torso so keep it up!

    Hand drawings are looking really nice as well, I would recommend using a more gestural line when you're going over the structure in black. At the moment it looks like a kinda scratchy line (might be the image quality), and the ones I've seen that have been accepted seem to look a bit more flowing and free (if that means anything ) It's something I've also been trying to get in my hand drawings.

    Are these gestural, proportionate, structural, etc. I cant seem to get any feedback anywhere else, sorry for posting so much Dx Who knew making a portfolio would be so hard, especially when you have been told "you're talented!' all your life. I have come to believe that talent is another word for "much work and practice" in my case. This really makes me feel amateur xD

    Hello!!! I'm new to concept art but I've read almost every animation school thread. I'd love some advice on pieces for the Sheridan portfolio!2015 - Sheridan College Animation Hopefuls2015 - Sheridan College Animation Hopefuls

    With life drawing starting back up for me I've been getting lots of practice in. This is one of my better ones I believe, but would still like some feedback. Thanks

    @sosaucy I like your life drawings, and I think your longer poses are great. If I had to say one thing to improve on, it would probably be your line quality. In some cases, the gesture line seems pretty rough. I think the reason for this is you're using the conte on it's tip, and not on the side. It might just be a personal preference, but in my life drawing class we were taught to do our basic masses/gesture line/etc with the side on the conte to create soft, smokey lines...They become subtle this way. Another thing related to line quality is 'line economy'...which is just a fancy way of saying make sure the lines you use count. Look at your lines, and see if they each have a purpose. If they seem to be random, or going off on their own, you should probably get rid of them. I like your last, lying down pose the best. I think you did really well with the contours of the pelvis area.

    Welcome lponce08!

    I really like your linework in the life drawings: very dynamic and interesting which is one of the criteria they mark on so that is good! I would now focus on making your drawings a little more proportionate and accurate. This goes for the animal drawings as well which could do with some more weight and proportion. The room drawing looks great as well as the hands so keep it up and keep drawing

    About the household objects section, someone told me that in the second drawing, they do not want the objects in the same position and covered with stuff. They want to see you destroy the objects. Is that true because I did not do that...

    Hey again SoSaucy,

    As far as I know you can do whatever you want to the objects, as long as it there is a 'change over time' I think there is a mark for "story" on that section so I guess try and make it as inventive and interesting as possible (although I've seen a lot get good marks that have been really simple so I might be wrong there).

    On another note, I've put up some more life drawings on my Tumblr if anyone feels like giving them a look. Deadline's getting close guys! (for international at least D

    Unfortunately I can't view these images so I can't really comment specifically on them. But regarding your concern you can technically have the objects in the same position with just a passage of time but these tend not to score very high, as it's quite boring and is essentially the same drawing twice with some modifications.

    You're going to want to definitely move them around to create a more dynamic composition. I've heard that a favourite of the Sheridan profs is having creatures of some sort come in and interact with the objects in various ways; something like mice, gremlins etc. If you still want to do a passage of time, take it too the extreme so the objects are being moved around or destroyed, whatever you'd like as long as it's dynamic

    Well done PradyumanRathod! I've still got some way to go before I'm gonna send mine

    Anyway, here's a character I've been working on recently, would love some feedback

    @chowny Character is unique but according to me u should try to make different face structures.Because this one has more of a human feeling coming from it changing the facial features might help in emphasizing the whole character.

    As a character there isn't really much problems, but in terms of being something submit able, the drawings shown seem too 2 dimensional, one part of note the horns not coiling into the tip but instead looking kind of like a rod glued onto the side of another rod, I'd suggest looking into more Rams to study from and draw to get the head shape and leg shape properly down

    @chownyp The character is good, I would just really focus on that rotation and making the line quality a little better. Remember, thick lines in bony areas, areas where the light doesn't react, and in areas of pressure. Keep smooth fabric and soft things with very thin lines. I think it just needs minor touch ups with the horn (Reference horns!!) because they look like they are glued to the head and the legs look like wooden pegs so I would somehow make them look more like a stylized goat leg. 2015 - Sheridan College Animation HopefulsThe karate belt around the waist looks half assed so really look into that clothing.
    Interesting character otherwise, it's very original and just needs minor improvements.

    Thanks for the comments guys Very helpful, and thanks so much for taking the time to draw that leg structure out SoSaucy! I've got a day off work (for once) so I'll take all those points into account and experiment some more with the character.

    @SoSaucy those life drawings are looking great, definitely submit-able I would say! love the lines on the hips and they're definitely gestural and structural enough.

    I'm kinda on the last stretch to finish the portfolio so I thought I'd put up a bunch of the stuff that I've done so far. If anyone has any favourites (ones they think I should submit) then please tell me! My own opinion on these things has long since vanished after spending so much time on this bloody portfolio.

    Hello there!!
    I'm currently a grade 12 student that just applied to fundies, and is working towards a 2016 portfolio. Just wanted to say that this thread has been so helpful in terms of what to do/what not to do and all of your character designs look so cool! :'D

    Just a few quick notes. Your hands are coming along nicely just keep drawing them and you'll be golden, also with your line quality make it clear where the weight and tension is being held in the hand.

    Your object drawing has a good composition but it's lacking volume as you didn't draw through the objects so in general it looks a tad flat, also your ellipses are looking a bit wonky.

    As for your room drawings try not to stick to 1 point perspective; ideally both of your room drawings should be in 2 point perspective but at least 1 should suffice. Make sure you are carefully observing the room and ensure you're drawing from life and not from a photo.

    Welcome to the thread and I wish you good luck on your portfolio next year! Aside from fundies I'd suggest you look into the Animation Portfolio Workshop as it helped me build a portfolio and generally learn how to draw better than fundies ever did, or take both if you have the money.

    If you are set on fundies my suggestion is to go to sheridan's extra life session as often as possible. Put your effort on the portfolio versus the class assignments but by all means work hard at both but the portfolio is what will get you into animation not fundies so that's where your focus should be.

    Thanks for the advice Piedram, could you elaborate on using the line to show the tension? Not really sure how that would work

    Also, I was thinking about how the guidelines say that 3 of the life drawings (animal and human) should show movement and 2 show stillness. Is this strictly enforced or not because I'm pretty sure I've seen loads of portfolios that didn't adhere to this and still got accepted.

    Mainly just to emphasize where the energy in the motion is, so for the first drawing the hand is drawn back about to throw the dart there's tension in the wrist as it extended backward anticipating the throw; you should draw the tendon in the wrist that should be visible in this pose. Mainly Just think about the action itself and where the energy is. I hope that was clear enough and one more thing make sure to include the dart in the 2nd drawing.

    I've also noticed that myself and it seems what they consider movement is pretty broad.

    Thanks again Piedram, that's definitely clearer, I'll go back to the drawing and add some more lines. Also thanks for reminding me about the dart, wasn't sure if that was necessary as it seems pretty obvious but I guess if they like that then I'll put it in.

    I've put up my second attempt at the storyboard here if anyone fancies taking a shot at critiquing it I would be very grateful.

    Thank you! I've started life drawing already (but only from images as there aren't many classes around here) and probably can't afford the portfolio workshop. However, I'm in one of those 'high skills major' programs in Ontario schools that focuses on art and I could ask if they're doing any more drawing related seminars! Also, in terms of the personal artwork section, what are pieces to avoid? Online media is obviously a no-no, but is there anything else to steer away from?

    Yes, you absolutely have to follow all of the instructions. By movement they don't necessarily mean something running or doing something extremely active: Life drawings that show movement could simply be the figure taking a step forward, or in a still pose that shows gestural movement (does that make sense?) like the anticipation of an action. I found it easier to do the 2 still drawings with animals, and do the movement drawings with humans. (animals are easy to catch sleeping)

    Ah okay, thanks Jesshop I think I see what you mean, I agree with you about the animals being easier to do still. I can only draw my cats when they're asleep or just being super lazy, otherwise they won't stop moving and walking on my paper.

    Hi guys!
    I was just wondering if anyone knows the/ or where I can find the payments details to Sheridan? To pay the portfolio fee? I'm an international student so I'm going to have to transfer the money to them, I've sent them an email but I'm a little anxious about the deadline coming up and the money not getting there in time!
    Thanks!

    I am mailing in my portfolio so does the portfolio submissions sheet have to be taped to the front of the portfolio or do I put it in the first page of the portfolio? They tell the people who are bringing it in person that they should place the sheet on the outside of the portfolio but they don't give instructions where to put the sheet for the people who have to mail it.
