So the first year I've tried, it didn't work out for me. This is my second time trying, and I GOT ACCEPTED to animation AND illustration! It was pretty hard to choose between the 2 programs, but I saw the flexibility of animation and how its more new to me. Super excited!!! That lady who was looking down on my abilities could kiss my accepted-Asian ass!!!
Hope this year's portfolio could help the new applicants. Don't give up guys! Let your creativity inspire yourself and others =)
