this video is to document my experience in getting accepted to one of the best art schools on the west coast. Laguna College of Art + Design. this college is located right on Laguna beach California and is taught by people who still work in the industry with the top companies.
Tips on how to create the perfect portfolio:
1. include a good amount of studies/still life drawings. for example: drawings of things you see in front of you. you want to do this to show technical skill and also to appease the classical teachers.
2. include some art that includes your interests, your passions, something that interests you. this way they know who you are and your not afraid to express yourself.
3. include a couple pieces of work where you show the process of how something is made. include sketches of it, thumbnails, etc..
4. add original character designs or environment designs.
