Questions about Portfolio - Mainz and Wiesbaden
I'm an international student but feel free to reply in German. I also apologise for the fact that I'm not yet confident enough to write in German myself :D
I am planning to apply for KD in the coming sommer semester and have a few question, would really appreciate it if you could help me out a bit.
Concidering the deadlines I'm gonna need to make two different portfolios. I thought a good way to reduce the hard work would be digital paintings. I'm no expert but I do have experiences with photoshop and Corel paint. Do these specific universities prefer analog or is it ok to include a few digital works? I will definitley show the process, sketches, layout, etc.
second question, my sketchbooks have too many pages. would it be ok to just rip out the sketches and studies that have to do with my illustrations and put them in the portfolio? to show how I studiued the subject(s), how do I come up with ideas, etc. also, is it ok to break the rules if I prove that I do KNOW them? like, not drawing a face like a face really looks like, but sending along sketches which show I KNOW how to draw a face. I just prefer a different style when illustrating.
Last question. is Zentangle an art? I do use zentangle designs every now and then, not PURE zentangle though. just as a part of the illustration. I find them relaxing and a very good practice for line work, but don't know if it would appropiate to include a piece or two.
Thank you very much.
