    I'll be starting my Masters in Illustration in SCAD in the fall. Heh, a case of there not being many options and SCAD waving a scholarship at me. >)

    Need some feedback

    Time to bump this thread... Where are all the SCAD students? lol

    Hi. I'm a 1st year at SCAD-ATL. I would've posted this at The Hive, but I feel uncomfortable asking there because those forums display your real names... I'm weird, I know.

    It's halfway through first quarter, but I've been thinking about this for the past several days. WHAT AM I GOING TO MAJOR IN? pld:

    I've always wanted to major in animation or sequential art. I want to do character design, concept art, and some animation in 3D and 2D... So I initially wanted to do animation. But then I thought "What if I totally suck at making things move?" Yeah, I'll learn about motion, but it really scares me because I know nothing about animation. So then I thought about sequential art, but I don't wanna make comic books.

    If it helps, I idolize people like Hyung-Tae Kim and Tetsuya Nomura. They're concept/character designers for games. SO, then I thought about doing game development. But looking at the courses, they seem more technical than art-ish...

    So right now I'm thinking about majoring in animation and using my free electives for some of the SEQA classes specifically for the conceptual classes... I'd minor in SEQA, but I don't have the extra $$$.

    So I'd appreciate some input. I've spoken to one of the animation professors, but it was a bit brief. He told me animation and Seqa go well together -- animation for more on the production side, and Seqa for the conceptual side. But I dunno... I'm very much interested in concept/character design, but like I said, I don't want to be making comic books.

    And yeah, I've spoken to other students, but they're like "Hmm... I dunno."

    I am so confused.

    Anything you major in is going to require you learn something more than just concept art. Personally, I think Seqa is closer to concept work than Ani. Not only because it has the only concept classes, but also things like character design, storyboarding, maquettes, backgrounds and props, etc. Some of the format may turn out to be comics, but the meat of what you learn is still conceptual.

    I'm thinking of applying here... I really want to go to Ringling, but SCAD gives more scholarships.

    rblitz7- are you writing it on the form they gave you for the essay or not? because i don't think a heading is necessary on their forms...

    I think moroi was refering to the Statement of Purpose form that is provided by the school.

    I agree with you on not being in a competetive environment sometimes can make you feel off and uninspired.

    BUT, world has changed a lot. Look all the online communities, there are like best artists posting their work and commenting on others. So if you are in a situation where you feel you are not amonst a compititive student group, make a bookmark list of best places online where you can get inspired. Visit them often.

    I am sure you can find the best artwork on internet. And not only that but also you may find articles on explaining how they had doen the piece. Which may not be possible in competitive classes if competitors are not open minded to discuss.

    Concept drawing is attracting me strongly these days!
