Here's what you need to get started on your online portfolio:
Submit an online application to Capilano University, this is required before you submit your portfolio - Admissions
Review the instructions on the "How to Submit Your Portfolio" page on the Animation website.
Visit the Portfolio Submission Form and follow the instructions to submit a link to your online portfolio directly to the Animation department.
What not to include in your portfolio:
Originality is vital. Do not submit work that is not your own. If you have to include drawings you made from an anatomy book or any kind of group project, make sure you label what is not yours and whose work it is. If we see work that is not yours but looks like you're trying to pass it off as yours, it will reflect poorly on the whole portfolio.
Drawing from photographs is less impressive than drawings from life because with a photo, much of the work is done for you already (and it usually looks flat and lifeless anyway). If you have to send us drawings you copied from photos, make sure you still have examples of life drawing and original sketchbook work.
