I have loads of stuff like I said from life drawings, to general typographic designs, photography, etc. It's not what the actual drawing or subject is, it's more about the technique and the design that you did. If you don't wanna put certain things in, then you don't have to I guess. Just bring what you're confident to talk about. I bought all projects because I can discuss them as I did the work and tend to get on with it. I sit up til like 3am sometimes doing graphics because it's what I love, but they wanna see that.
It's got a high reputation and they were saying how they'd like to keep that standard, which is fair enough. I know a few people who have been turned down and it's scary, cos it was my first choice.
I would defo bring the life drawings btw, it's a good idea, and he liked my sketches, etc. I have a variation from life drawings, of a male and female, to sketches of skeletal features, like the spine, fingers, but they're more contour drawings, and are almost seen as scribbles but I guess he liked them because he complimented them and wants me to keep this standard of working throughout the degree - that's what he said lol. I've used charcoal, chalk, normal standard drawing ink, "brushos" (if you've ever heard of them, create a well nice effect), indian ink, graphite and ordinary stronger shades of a pencil. They are more or less line drawings, with a bit of detail, but it's varied.
I personally wouldn't focus too much on the life drawings, unless you love them a lot to speak about them throughout the portfolio part. I would focus more on your final pieces, because they wanna see an end result, well he did. He wanted to see how I combined all these different techniques into one.
Jeez I'm going on lol, can't help it.. I know what you guys are feeling. Which one's your first choice? I looked at DMU, but because I will only have 2 A levels, I couldn't ever gain 260 points from 2 A levels ha, so I ditched that, and would much prefer to be south and by the sea. Loads of my mates either go London, or are going to LCC or LCF, but London aint for me - too much to live, way too many people... Only good for a decent night out, but Bournemouth has that anyway! X
