Careful! Large file!
Well, finally got around to putting this all together. This is a comparison between my animation portfolio from last year (2009) and this year's portfolio (2010). I mainly wanted to wait until I got my score sheet back before scanning everything...and then I ended up waiting till school was over, so here it is! The difference between a portfolio I made straight out of high school compared to one I did after taking a 1-year program at Sheridan College! (Oh, and I did make it into animation on my second try, yay.)
Not everything from the portfolio's seen here. I left out my figure drawings 'cause they're too large to scan and I didn't want to take a photo of them (and they were my weakest point, heh...) and the 5 pieces in the personal section of the portfolio are left out 'cause...well, just take a look around my gallery to see my personal work xD
From top to bottom, the pictures are:
Hand Pose - before and during
Object Drawings - before and after ((looking at last year's for this makes me laugh and cringe))
Character Expressions ((I'd forgotten how anime 2009's was xD))
Character Rotation - front, 3/4 front, profile, 3/4 back, back
It's nice to see how different things are after less than a year of drawing.
I do apologize for how the scanning turned out for the final look (especially for the storyboards). The scanner doesn't like picking up the light line-work, and scaling the images down didn't help with that either.
To anyone who's applying to a program like this (where you have to submit a portfolio, or something else like an audition), don't give up! Keep improving and try again!
Hope people find this helpful/interesting! And please be nice in comments, I know I still have a lot to learn!
