Hey everyone, I'm a high school senior at Laguardia Arts in NYC and was wondering if I could get some feedback from my portfolio so far. I will be applying to a couple schools in NYC (which includes majorly SVA and Pratt) for Illustration and was wondering how could I improve my portfolio to the point where it's 'scholarship worthy'. I have received a few reviews already and many were positive and said I could be accepted, but my main focus now is to get a scholarship. Im posting my art here hoping any of you could help give me advice on how to balance my portfolio with my best pieces and also for it not to be dominated by my illustrations from imagination.
Soo here they are~ (I also have a few paintings and sculptures that I may include but I have not yet taken pictures of them, maybe i can post them later on if you'd like.)
The teacher at my figure drawing class suggested we morph the models into animals, so I definitely had fun with that!
Drawings from life done at Grand Central and The downtown Highline. (the shoe was done in class a while ago)
This was a life drawing done at Bryant park
These are the images from my pre-college fashion course at Parson's
This was done for a children's illustration class project. The assignment was to create our own hybrid creature and I made a hybrid with a Baboon Bear and Iguana. These show the differences of Male and Female.
A request for a friend done in Photoshop
These are all done with a pentel brush pen and some were colored with Letraset markers and photoshop.
Done with Watercolors
I have one huge concern! The pictures with multiple images; should I separate them and submit them on their own or keep as big clumps? I don't want to over submit my art because after all they do say Quality over Quantity! Thank you all so much!
