Ok, I had a portfolio review monday (12th of december), the portfolio contained mostly just charcoals and some cartoons (sketchbook with comics markers and other inked stuff). The guy reviewed my portfolio, said the life drawings were a little boring and forced but he really liked me cartoons and just said he wasn't confident i'd be able to get through foundation year.
He said to liven up my life drawings a little and get back to him in a month or two (applying for fall 2006 semester, by that time i will have a year of college completed).
Ok, I agree with him on pretty much everything, although I do think I could handle foundation year, i just gotta show him. Im gonna have a month off of school after finals so right now im mapping out my gameplan for the "new and improved portfolio".
I was thinking about getting some pastels, doing more paintings with acrylics and watercolors and maybe doing some enviormental peices (like interior drawinds).
I'm still kind of lost of how to get 15-20 original life drawings out of this though, any suggestions on what i should be putting in?
Also You think it's possible for me to get accepted submitting an application of only 10 credits (not fulltime student right now)? Im taking 16 next semester and summer courses in the summer, my grades are eeeh... b's and c's.....
So do I even have a shot? Im not really interested in any other schools NE and i really like new york city, and im trying to get into comics and illustration so I think sva is the perfect school for me. Ok sorry this is so long, any help is appreciated.
