is anyone currently aiming for an art-related degree in college? anyone enrolled in a private art college?
I go to a normal university (university of maryland: baltimore county // umbc). I'm here for visual arts: animation/interactive media. I haven't taken any art classes cus there's a lot of gen eds being a university...i applied and got into the program with a lot of original paintings and drawings.
portfolios like these set the bar pretty high. :-/
It really depends what you're going for. that portfolio is good. however, to me it's so boring and a lot of it is dull colors. yeah, they can make pseudo-photorealistic artwork, but a lot of it has to do with where you wanna go with your art degree.
for example, i applied as animation, and all my drawings and paintings are detailed fantasy-related, vibrant, orgasmic pieces. Not dullcolored pictures of people. I also submitted a couple flash movies.
content really does have a large influence besides photo-realistic drawing ability. do you have a portfolio to show us?
the events are merely fictional, written, directed, and acted out by all who create them
