What about linking stash folders with all the art from one year? That way it won't clutter up your portfolio function. Maybe a folder wayyy down at the bottom of your folder line titled 'old art' and links to stash folders in the folder description?
As a professional, I use my dA for networking and connecting with other professionals. Having old artwork up for everyone to see isn't considered professional, and it could clutter up an otherwise "neat and impressive" looking gallery. So I store old artwork to keep only my recent and best artwork out for display, much like a portfolio.
Hm... I think normal It's interesting to see that because many artist say that beeing at an art school (animation, illustration, whatever) didn't help them .. now I feel better starting to study 3D animation xD thank you for that!
Art school is what you make of it. I find many artists don't like the restrictive nature of art school, being told what to draw for the sake of learning. Some people don't like it because of having to work in a certain time frame with a deadline and only being allowed certain mediums or such like that.
yeah, my future lecturer said something similar. well, let's see what happens, I'm pretty sure I also won't like everything (especially the still life) but hopefully it will be woth the time and money^^
yeees - I know, but it's still not my favourite thing to draw xD I'll try to :3 as long as I don't have to draw a sneaker from behind again... And thank you, I'll try to remember that conversation when it gets really annoying ;3
