The Keyframes Podcast Episode 2 - Sheridan Portfolio Edition

HEY YOU! Yeah you! 

Chances are, especially at this time of the year, you're someone who stumbled upon this art blog to creep and see if I posted my portfolio. Well, here it is and it can also be found through the sidebar under the tag "Portfolio":

Above is the second episode to the Keyframes podcast that I participate in and in it we talk about how we approached the portfolio and give some advice for those who are working on theirs right now. So give it a listen while you're working on the portfolio!

Welcome to another exciting episode of The Keyframes Podcast!

On this weeks episode we do our best to help all of the 2014-2018 Sheridan Animation Hopefuls! That's right, an entire episode dedicated to offering the tips and tricks we learned along the way when we were creating our Sheridan Animation entrance portfolios just 1 year ago. We walk through each of the pieces required for the portfolio and share our experiences, pass on advice we were given, and give our thoughts on how to give your portfolio that extra edge among the rest.

We hope this episode will make creating your portfolio just that much more an enjoyable experience, and will hopefully will help you in accomplishing your goal in joining the Sheridan Animation Elite!

Life Drawing First Semester

Here's some life drawing from first semester that I considered not to post at first due to an unfortunate apathy I have on the subject now. I need something to rekindle the passion I once had for life drawing, it's not the same anymore when I'm drawing in class but outside during extra life or in public cafe sketching, I still enjoy it a ton but something is still...different. It may be due to the pressure and the confusing, inconsistent, and muddled expectations of the work that is required in that class. 

Aside from that, at least I started noticing that I drew differently and better after the first month. The second half of the semester didn't have much progress due to other work getting in the way of life drawing. 

A few of these were submitted for the portfolios we had to hand in twice throughout the semester and a bunch not from the portfolios. 

Most of the ones I handed in for portfolio were drawn on top with a pencil crayon by my instructor with corrections and helpful guides, so most of those portfolio pieces are unfortunately not in this set and will not be posted.  I'll remember next time to take photos before submitting. There are a few drawings below with just circle marks though, just ignore those...even with those notes I still like the drawings.
