First of all... I got accepted into SCAD!!!
For those who aren't familiar, SCAD stands for Savannah College of Art and Design. It's an art school in Georgia, and it's been my dream school since junior high. I got the acceptance e-mail in my inbox this morning and the official letter is on it's way. Squee!!
I'm going to be a Sequential Arts major!
As for the "requests" part of this title, it's a little different this time around. Rather than your typical draw-my-OC type of request, these are going to be portfolio related. I want to have some variety in my portfolio, including realism, still life, character designs, illustration, and, of course, sequential stuff! So those are the type of requests I'm doing.
Before I even get to the specifics, I want to make one thing clear. Assuming I like the turnout, I will be using these in my official portfolio. I will not be using them to make money. If you're not okay with me using the image for university-purposes, don't even bother posting.
Another note: I will be choosing which requests I do based on personal preference. These are not first-come, first-serve. If I think it has a possibility of becoming a good portfolio piece, I will put my everything into it. Now, they may not look like my usual stuff on DA. There will be experimentation out the wazzoo, so just be warned.
Examples of what kind of requests I will accept:
RL person (you, a friend, etc) with a good reference image. This could either end up as realism, quick practice, or even an illustration with added elements. I may even turn it into a fantasy creature or whole new character design based on the reference. The RL requests I accept will be based mostly on the reference image that you supply. It could be the ugliest person in the world; if the features are interesting to me, I'll draw it.
A pet, animal, flower, still life, etc. Same rules apply on this one. I could draw it as-is or change it up for an illustration.
A sequential page/strip based around a theme. Self-explanatory, I hope. NO fanart. You must either own the characters you supply or simply don't supply any at all.
Character design based around a theme or element. For example, based on a flower. If I like how this one turns out, it may get turned into an adoptable when I get done with it. The suggester/requester would get first crack at it if they were interested.
And of course, your OC! Yes, you can still suggest that. xD
Once more, it may not look like my usual style. It would be more fanciful!
These will be picked based upon character design and creative freedom.
Got any other ideas? Post 'em! You never know!
Thanks, lovelies! Wish me luck! ^.^
