Hi, I'm new to this. I believe this is the right area to post a portfolio review. My name is Jaylen, I live in Japan and I am currently a senior, seeking acceptances to art schools in Vancouver, Canada (my real home).
If you guys (the community) could please give me any feedback on the art itself, that would greatly be appreciated. Also, perhaps saying which is the strongest/weakest would be helpful for the portfolio lineup.
I understand some may be hard to understand, due to the fact that you don't know the meaning behind every piece but please still give as much feedback as possible!
THANKS IN ADVANCE!
p.s. upon previewing this thread, I noticed that the images were a little fuzzy. The files I send will be better quality and taken/framed better.
A piece based on tribal art, about 3 feet tatal. Acrylic on wood, images transferred from drawing using adhesive/dry technique
A watercolor piece of a chandelier.
A piece done entirely out of plaster, the innards of the face are foam to help cope with weight. Piece is over 6 feet tall.
A pressed image (using a speedball presser), with an ink image overlay
A skinny man (meaning behind piece revolves around poverty) roughly 5 feet tall. Watercolor background, drawn entirely out of gel pens.
Ceramic faces painted with watercolor.
Not finished yet. I will have a mouth, eye and nose as well. in a square formation. Showing my technical ability and facial realism.
Watercolor and chalk
