I plan on going to school next year for graphic design, and I have a question for everyone who is going and went to school for it, did you guys have to submit a portfolio of hand drawn things? I have to have one for the school I plan on going to, but I have draw for shit. Lol. If you had to, how did you guys get your portfolio ready? What would you recommend for improving drawing skills?


varies at different schools, some dont even require a portfolio.
basically practice and work your ass off, itll be good practice for when youre actualy at school.
when i was applying to art school i spent 2 months workin like every day, gave up my social life for that time, made a whole new portfolio of 12-18 pieces because i just wasnt happy with my work up to that point.
payed off big time, i suggest you do the same.
as for drawing, i would take a class but really drawing is just about looking and doing. i always thought there had to be some trick to drawing like photorealistically and shit, but the only trick is that you dont stop until it looks perfect. people that say they cant draw, its really just a mental block. this is the mentality you have to have about art/ design, whatever it may be, so ya i would just suggest for you to work your ass off. drawing class will help but mostly its on you. draw constantly, when your just sittin in class try to pick out certain objects with some interesting quality or that reflect light in a certain way and just try as hard as you can to capture that.
good luck
