Well...I didn't get in this year, I found out last friday afternoon. I guess there's always next year...*sigh*. Anyway, here are the apparently bad work I did, except for the the character design because I don't like it and my storyboards. The only thing I got good scores on were my layouts with a couple 4s and my hands.

Here we go!

Life Drawing

(10 min)

 This one was the last drawing I chose to put in, I wasn't even sure to add it. But after showing a couple of people my portfolio, they all seemed to like this ball holding man. (3 min)

(5 min)

Animal Drawings



Hand Drawings

I did well on these, I guess those countless Leyendecker studies during the summer and constantly drawing hands whenever I had nothing else to draw came should I put this...handy! (Note: this pun was unintended and I noticed it last minute so I edited it).

Character Expressions

Okay, I'll post the expressions. That was the only thing that I liked from my character. Especially the surprised look.

Object Drawings

Room Drawings

In the end I'm kind of happy I got at least some 4s (one for the object and another for the room [and most people didn't do so well in the layout portion]). But I think I deserved some better marks in other areas. Well there's an entire year for improvement, and I'm super excited about that. I've already started doing some studying again, starting all the way at the beginning by practicing with lines and basic shapes (boxes, cylinders etc.).

I'll be posting what I've been up to during classes this past month in the next couple of days or so. Although some of which I don't know if I'll be able to post, such as my digital projects. Although I might be able to post my mock-up website for a wine.


  1. Aw..I'm super sorry to hear that, the work here is awesome! I hope it will all work out for you, and hey, your improvements are fantastic! We can go life drawing and museum drawing next year as I will be back in town needs a portfolio too. : )

    1. WHAT?! You're coming back to the Land of Cold?! YAY! This year or next year? And thanks for the compliments, I worked really hard to improve this year and I'm very proud of the progress I've made.
      And you know some life drawing places around Mississauga? I'd be glad to draw with you again! I can't wait! :D

  2. Dear Marco,

    Ahem. Just to clear a few things up, this is Angelique~
    I wanted to drop by and let you know that I thought your portfolio was fantastic. I am so surprised that you did not get in. But I am glad that we both tried together. I think in a weird way we pushed ourselves to the very hardest, and while this right now wasn't quite enough...I know we'll kick ass next year. No giving up~

    1. Hells yeah! Animation 2013! We'll have summer drawing adventures! Start studying nao!
