This past month I decided to apply for the BFA. A BFA is a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree as opposed to a Bachelor of Arts (which is the program I'm already in). I actually applied in April and wasn't accepted. So after a lot of long chats with my roommate and fellow artist (who is already in the BFA), Melissa, she finally convinced me to let go of my pride and I decided to apply. Which meant putting together a whole new portfolio in one month! Wheeee! Melissa was the best and did a lot of the thinking (aka what I should put in) while I did the grunt work (aka painting). I painted so many things in 2 weeks that I kind of have an aversion to thinking about those paintings. But I'll just post them so you guys can get a glimpse of what I've been up to. 

Character line up for a boy band project I'm working on

story beat for that boy band
 little monster
hatter hats concepts

undercover cop

self portrait

Independent Study course SFL100

Simon and Martina portraits

sketchbook compilations

Goose Girl

Kpop High character line up

These are portraits of me and my siblings (haha mine looks least like me, but I really didn't care that point). I painted the last 4 of these in 1 day. I still get a little sick to my stomach looking at them, they were so much work.

Another story beat. Backstage!

Taeyang (fan art haha)

These were just the digital paints I put in. The rest of the portfolio included a sketchbook (that I filled in about 3 weeks), 14 figure drawings, and 4 acrylic paintings from a previous class.
I still haven't found out if I've gotten into the BFA or not. At this point I just want to know (obviously).
Tell me your favorites please!
