Okay.. i'm going to have to be fairly to the point here, because I don't know the level of ability you're required to have to get into this course. Please understand I'm not saying this to be mean, i'm trying to help.

This portfolio really needs work. I don't want to be gentle with you here, because it's the answer your college is going to give you. You need to sit down and really focus on doing some long pieces, both creative and studied, and take some serious time and effort.

How long do you have before the interview?

What I would suggest you do is a series of long studies over the next week. Take a few hours on each, as much as possible. Do some of Rebecca's workshop material, that will help you out immensely.

I'm sorry I can't give you better news than this, but you need to show something that has a finished and well polished presentation. Colleges can be fairly brutal about these things, so you need to be prepared. You need to show the college you're aware of your shortcomings and the goals you have to improve. As they say in the brief:

You obviously show a lot of potential, but you need to work on the other two points.

Just as a disclaimer, I'm only one person and I don't know what the entrance level of this college is. I may be wrong here, but I've seen folio submissions before, and they usually expect more.

Hi there Fusioniz

Okay, you want me to be honest, I will be.

You DO have potential, and long term I can definitely see you working up to a good standard. But right now - bare in mind without my specific knowledge of the institution you are applying to - I wouldn't say that your work is ready.

What I think would be your best bet to do is figure out things that you need to improve on, and discuss it with them in your interview. That way, if they see that you know what is wrong with your pieces and are willing and enthusiastic to improve, (it also shows initiative) that will be your best shot.

And like Martin says, work on a handfull of really detailed studies this week to add in. Don't do just people, they're hard to do - study some everyday objects, shade your work a little more. And of course, Rebecca Kimmel's anatomy forum in general is a wonderful learning zone!

Good luck.
