Hannah Gibbs said: Hey there! I know how you feel. I'm still pending on my CalArts application for this year, but I am preparing for the worst, hoping for the best. I got accepted to LCAD too! I received a merit scholarship that I really cannot complain about haha. Although, being an oldie here (I'm 25) I am eager to start school. ( I was a hairstylist, but I started to regret not pursuing my dream in animation, so I just went for it this year) I think I will end up attending LCAD and try again for CalArts in 2014 if things do not work out this year, but I still have my fingers crossed the next few days. I didn't apply to Ringling because I just didn't think I was a good fit there. Anyway, blah blah blah :D I think you should go for it next year since you didn't apply this year. You ever know until you try, and even try again :) hell, I'm 25. Never too late ;) Also, LCAD has a great department from what I hear. Good luck!
Wow your art is fantastic, I really hope you get into Calarts and I wish you the best of luck! That's awesome that you also got accepted into LCAD. I'm thinking that's where I'm going to attend this next fall, and I'll just apply to Calarts while attending LCAD so that way if I don't get accepted to Calarts at least I am at an art college. I didn't go for Ringling personally because I'm not too interested in computer animation. Yeah, again, I really regret not applying but I'm going to give it my best shot when I do! And thank you!
Hey guys! I am also going to be applying to Calarts for 2014. I was going to apply this year because I'm a senior, but at the last minute I had major self-esteem issues and felt I wasn't good enough and backed out and never did apply. I really regret it also because when I went to National Portfolio Day the guy said I was close to being at Calarts level and that my sketchbooks were great and to turn them in so all I really had to do was work a little harder and I might have had a chance. Sigh. Right now I'm conflicted because I got accepted into LCAD, and I'm not sure whether to play it safe and go there, or wait a year and take my chances with Calarts. I've wanted to go to Calarts so badly though, so I might take my chances. But decisions like this are never easy to make.
Also I'll probably start posting my art soon because critiques would be absolutely lovely.

Wow! It's been over a YEAR since I've touched AnimatedBuzz! How dare I! Haha, it's been a long, but passive journey with my animation career outside of AnimatedBuzz. I graduated high school after 3 years there, and really figured out how I can't afford the expensive animation schools without scholarships. There are many options for education out there though. :) My path to landing that first job/opportunity is going to be a very independent one, I can tell already. A lot of developing a professional portfolio with specializations without a big school teaching me along the way. At least for now, as I'm attending a community college to improve GPA and develop my art/portfolio. Whether it be me getting a scholarship from an animation school, or attending a public university for any art program they can offer me, or me developing professionally only through my own study,from videos, books, internet, life experiences, etc. I'll get there.Still loving story and it's art so much, the work of storyboard artists! :)
Only got simple sketches from 2011/12 on here. I gotta fix that! ;)
(Won't be too active on here until late December, that's when I start school and can concentrate on art/education the most.)
Til then! So awesome to see all you artists again! A lot of new faces. :)
Just a little note to all you guys who are applying to colleges this year.
Make sure your already looking at funding options or at least have a plan. My funding plans fell through so i had to cancel my acceptance into CalArts which wasn't fun. Its not a nice feeling so please, don't put yourself through that and get looking now :)
I started learning to draw the figure around this time last year and after checkin my album I think i've improved! kinda proud of myself right now haha
