Asa: Putting the pencil down is for wussies. =P
And nope, no response yet. From what I've heard it's pretty standard that if there aren't any spots open, it's unlikely that you'll get a response because they don't go beyond a set number of students. And if they review your portfolio and you don't get accepted, then there's not really a rejection letter or anything. You just know by the several months of silence. Which is cool. Gives me several months to put together a better portfolio.
Genome: Pfffffft. Man, I'm always grateful to see your comments, regardless of length. Thanks so much for all of the support ad critique you give me. It's extremely appreciated. And yeah, haha. Mistaking me for a dude seems to be a pretty common thing.
More individual responses tonight. I'm going to Barnes and Noble all day to work on drawing skeletons. I realize I've pretty much skipped over the human skeleton in my studies, so I'm going to go make up for it by drawing dozens of them.
