I want to start off by saying sorry to you all for the lack of posting. I worked myself too hard for the past 2-3 weeks getting little sleep and stressing out to the point where I believe I had gone crazy. During all this time I have been working my butt off to complete my portfolio submission to a great animation program at Sheridan College. I basically saved all the final products to the last mintue since I couldn't draw anything that looked like a final piece to me. Finally, on March 5th, I went to the school, gave my portfolio away at 8:30am and picked it up at 2:30pm, all with a whole 2 hours of sleep - so yes I was a bit loco all day. I will know my results anytime past March 26th, however, I do believe that I will not make it this first try. I am not skilled enough for their needed standard. But not to worry, I applied to their Art Fundamentals course which will basically train me towards creating the type of portfolio the animation program needs.
I hope to post all of my drawings I submitted soon, so you can all see them. I had a lot to do, care for me to elaborate?
- 3 human life drawing, 2 animal (3 poses must be action and all drawn from life)
- 2 had drawings (one about to do an action, second carries out the action)
- object drawing of things found in your home in the shapes of a cone, sphere, cube, and cylinder. (One normal drawing of the objects, second drawing of something happening or had happened to the objects)
- character rotation of an original character on separate pages (front, 3/4 front, profile, 3/4 back, back)
- Character expression sheet (neutral, angry, happy, sad and surprised)
- 2 action poses of your character
- Storyboarding (you are given 2 characters. This year was a dog or a man, I chose the dog. Use the 4 panel storyboard to show the character finding an object and viewing the outcome)
- Room line drawing of a room in your home. You must draw a character in proportion in the room. Then draw a second room line drawing from the characters point of view.
- 5 personal art work pieces
And the drawing you see here was part of my personal art work submissions. Sooo, yeah that was...that was a crazy 3 weeks my friends. Have a great weekend!!!
