I've never actually put together a portfolio before so I'm hesitant about doing it and what should go into it. I'm wanting to apply as a animation/sequential arts major, any advice? What kinds of art should I put into a portfolio? Just finished, sketches, or some of both? Do they want just life drawings or are drawings done from imagination good to put in as well?
Also, I'd be applying as a transfer, but my GPA is terrible. I'm hoping that providing a good portfolio even though it's not required will help make up for that a bit? I don't want my chances ruined because of a personal set-back a year ago.
I'm hoping that enrolling in my local community college and making strong grades will help show that I'm capable of doing the work....but the deadline is well before I would get grades from this spring semester. Should I talk to a counselor at SCAD about that? Or am I doomed? :c
