alright then,

this week I'm going to start working on this monstrous project...i'll keep adding to the list as i go along, although i already had a horrific time trying to choose which went first...for now, i'll leave it as a surprise...

other than that, i'm keeping pace with comics and commissions, with some other odd pictures to be thrown that it's summer, i'd love to do some more cg work...but alas, i only have photoshop elements at the moment...though interesting things may come out of that, so i may still try it out...
eventually, my plan was to colour all the drawings from the monstrous project on the computer, since my tablet is horrifically disused as my old computer would crash whenever i hooked it i'm looking forward to figuring out how to really use it on this new one...

i'm also still looking into art schools, but am a bit more worried about building up my portfolio as last year's art class was a complete waste in that i'm trying to do a bit more observational studies and i'm wondering, what other sort of works do you think make a nice addition to make a good strong portfolio?

figure drawings. Not even joking. during my protfolio review I was told that one thing the admissions people will look for is a variety in a portfolio. Anybody and eveyrbody can draw in an anime or anime-influenced style but showing that you also understand realism and actual human anatomy really helps your case as well. not that your work isn't great or anything, btut hat's jsut what he said <3

add hands and feet to your portfolio.

mmmm, very good idea...i need to work on those anyways...thanks!
I haven't seen your full portfolio, but judging from your posts here, I'd be giddy to have half of what you've done. :)

Seriously though, if you know the list of schools you're interested in, write to them directly and ask what they would like to see in a prospective student portfolio. If they don't provide a straight answer, try google advanced search option and look on devArt for members who attend your list of schools and ask them.

that's a great idea, i'll definitely look into that, thanks!
The Hob? Waste of an art class? Nonsense*!

well i have to admit...she did have intense skill...i mean, it takes insane skill to manage to make a class completely useless, and she managed it...
