@kamikazel33t I'm pretty sure the site was made a little while ago so the standards always increase. xD But you're right. I was mainly just sharing it as guidelines. Pretty sure everyone's aware that Sheridan's a hardass school. >_< I think that you should do both, if possible. If you have your character rotation kind of down, let it sit for a while and improve on your drawing skills and then come back to it in a week or two. :3 That's my recommendation at least.
ALSO! Merry Christmas/Happy holidays everyone.
