Yup, I'll be going to the art academy next year
But before that I had to make sure to got accepted, which was so much harder than expected!
Really, they expect so much from you and the requirements can be really complicated and always different.
Right now when I get a 10 for a drawing I make on school (a 10 is the highest you can get here) and when I show that picture to a teacher from the art acadamy they will just tell me I have to do it over since it's ' too perfect' no originality and everyone can do this... that counts for portrait drawings and pretty much any realistic drawing with a reference. And not to start about manga/anime, they hate it there! haha
Besides that every art acadamy says: 'It's about the procces! It might even be more important than the finished product" So that means you have a absolutely amaizng drawing, but without any proces or deeper thpughts it won't be good enough.
In fact I'm actually nothing like that, but I tried my best to adapt myself.
So yeah, The last two weeks I had been working so hard on my portfolio. School had to suffer because I really had no time for anything, all I was doing was drawing, drawing and drawing.
But besides the portfolio the admission day was also quite scary. It took a whole day and even there you had to work on assignments. The scariest part was that there was absolutely no feedback. So I had no idea if they would like what I was doing or if they just hated it.
Also I was quite nervous for the conversation with a teacher of the art acadamy. Also because again they gave absolutely no feedback. All they did was asking questions. They didn't say anything about my work.
However, I got a a mail yesterday THAT I AM ACCEPTED!
I'm so happy because every time when I tell people I want to attend art acadamy they always tell me it will be hard to get accepted because of their high standards. Also, I only know people who got rejected by the art acadamy but no people who got accepted... Even my teacher warned me that even when you can draw like michelangelo you will have to realise that you can be easily rejected.
But that didn't happen!
Next week I will get a reporting of my portfolio, the assignments and the conversation. I really can't wait!
