Yes, the Calarts of Valencia California. Luckily for me, my artistic skills are no where near the level of accepted students, meaning I need to get to work!! Which brings me to the point of this blog. I'm currently a Junior in H.S., and the ache to get into this top-notch school has me scrambling to improve my skills, create a portfolio, and overall, stop sucking at art to stand out among 10% that get accepted. What a burden. A fun burden though.
But it must be done. It is a journey I must embark upon! And yes, you can join me. Watch me improve (or destroy) my art in the period following now until that final portfolio submission. The questions immediately arise! Will my art improve? Will I get in? Will I get utterly rejected? Whatever happens, I hope his blog can be used as a reference for other hopeful animators such as myself who have targeted Calarts as their future, expensive-ass college.
If I get rejected, look at my art as a reference of what not to do and how not to draw for your portfolio!
But hey, if I get in, you'll have a step-by-step reference of what you should do to get into your dream school.
But hey, what do I know? I still have a lot to learn and no brain mass to learn it with. Damn.
