I had to draw a bicycle for a Portfolio class in high school. I actually just finished and uploaded it today. She had us do it in case some of us were applying to RISD. I'm not (too expensive), but I still did it. It was so hard! Yours looks amazing. :]

I'm planning on applying to RISD, and I really want to get in, and we're doing a bike project in my AP class right now. The only problem is that the bike has to be in negative space. Do you think this would still be acceptable to use if the detail is all in the background?

It's a good school, and I love the teachers in the Illustration department, but the school has gotten way too overcrowded.

Ah, the infamous RISD bicycle. I love the way you effortlessly sketched.
I'm actually preparing for my RISD home tests this summer for the 2010 admissions! Quite apprehensive.

!! I had a feeling this was for RISD. I drew nearly an identical drawing >.>;;; not that I'm trying to say anything (so weird! same position with the shadow and everything!)

I miss my drawing :c even though I got in I decided not to go :/ too much money :/

SAIC (school of the art institute of Chicago). I'm so glad I went. I feel like I've been learning about techniques for so long and haven't really focus on concepts and ideas at all (I'm a bit sick of all the life drawing and still lifes I had to do at the RISD pre-college program.
The only issue I have with SAIC is that sometimes it overdoes the "conceptual" thing. Canvas painted only white sort of thing :b

It looks sketchy, but in this case, "sketchy" works. Good eye for detail at the same time.

Oh wow, fabulous! I love the composition and the delicate background (as well as the bike itself). :]

I'm hoping to apply to RISD as well (fantastic place, I loved it when I visited)...which means I have to get off my lazy bum and start those 3 drawings. :]

Wow, and here I was trying to find some bike inspiration for my own RISD sketch. This is the one sketch I'm stuck on. . . xD
It looks nice though, even if I think the background could have had more in it.

If you don't mind; How big did you have to draw your pictures? Did you get in?

Yes I did get in! And I found it to be worth the trouble, the school is amazing and I've already learned a lot from just my freshman year.

oh question. do you know what the dorms and stuff come with? like lamps etc? what to bring what not to bring? I think i'm in Pardon Miller (which looks amazingly awesome despite the sub-free-ness which i'm chill with. i think.) i'm really excited for school.
