These are the different categories required for the animation portfolio. Each were marked on different criteria and were given an average grade out of 4.
I should warn you that my scanner destroys everything.
The first section was Observational Life drawing
The average for this section was 2 /4; the score sheet said that my proportion and line quality were weak.
The second section was Character Design
I am not proud of this second action pose, the proportion and angles don't make any sense. This one I had the most difficulty with in the entire portfolio.
My average grade for this section was 4/4.
The fourth section only had one requirement: Storyboarding.
This was a definate improvement from last year.
My average grade on this section was 4/4.
The fourth section was Layout
Free Hand Household Object Drawings:
Free Hand Room Line Drawings:
My average grade for this section was 3/4
The last section was personal artwork, but I won't post that here, you can see that on my deviantArt page. The final score for that section was 3/4.
My total score was 3.11/4, and the minimum requirement was 2.99. Last year the minimum requirement was 2.97 and i scored 2.22. A very big difference if you ask me.
I know that I will definitely have to make an extra effort in Life Drawing this coming September. From now until then you probably won't see much from me. Maybe some character development and observational drawings every now and then, but I'm not making any promises.
