    are you applying straight from A Level ? or art foundation? portfolio is really impressive, but yeh perhaps a 3d piece of work would be good - you have time
    yeah, I'm going to try and produce at least 2 more sculptures by then
    Thanks! - and just A-level, (in y13 now).

    Hey guys in ur Bartlett task did most of your purely use pencil and biro pen/fineliner to produce black and white drawings? I used pencil, pen and ink of different forms and colours eg fine liners, loose water based inks, red pencils.. I wanted to showcase some experimentation but I feel as though I might have done too much??!
    Did 5 graphites and 1 with graphite+ink. As long as you've express the theme and your personality/style well enough through the works, i dont think the variety of medium matters

    Hey what are your opinions on each page of a physical portfolio consisting of just printed out PDFs. So pictures of models.. Scans of drawings and sketchbook work etc... Presented digitally and then printed out on a1 instead of having the actual copies of the work?

    You lose some of the quality of the work if you are choosing printing over using originals. But if you're using photos anyway, deffo get it printed. Just really expensive...

    Hi!
    Well I chose to put 2 pictures on each side including :
    -2 sides is my architecture project, "home office" 2 pictures of the drawings and 2 of the model from different angles.
    -2 sides with a big model and being very detailed I had to fit the image on the entire page.
    -1 side consists of two watercolour paintings, one imaginary and one is a lutheran church I did for analysing its architecture.
    -1 side is an oil colour painting of a landscape from my city and an experiment I did with tensegrity(model).
    -1full side I printed out a portrait (even if they said the work should be architectural I kind of feel they want to see this too)
    -the last side includes two still life drawings where it shows my drawing style and the way I construct the volumes in space.
    My deadline is on 5 so I have to send them up tomorrow because I am an international.
    Hope it helped .

    Yeah true. But I feel as though the drawings look better when scanned in rather than in actuality cos I was able to clean them up digitally. I'll attach a page here as an example! I won't be scanning in some paintings as they're too large so I guess not everything will be a printed out pdf..
    Ikr! This dude on my foundation course has applied to the ruskin and slade for fine art and has spent over £100 printing out his portfolio! I'm getting my brother to pay for mine with his uni card ha

    www.carbonmade.com is pretty good, although there is a limited number of images (unless you subscribe).
    Otherwise, there are loads of blogging websites that you can use e.g www.blogger.com

    My interview is on the 11th. I'm thinking of taking my 3 A-Level sketchbooks so far and the easily transportable other pieces. Those that are too large/heavy, I will print out.
    Best of luck! When is your interview?

    Hi congrats on the interview! I haven't received one or heard anything back but I submitted my task just under two weeks ago. Sounds good though, what's your most used medium within your work may I ask? Would you say you have a lot to take?
