A look back at some layout drawings selecyed from animation portfolios from Animation Portfolio Workshop class of 2018. Portfolios for animation schools require a solid knowledge of perspective shown in layouts like these. In these drawings, 2 point perspective, composition, solid object drawing, sketching, center of interest, overlapping objects, depth, variation in shapes show a number of the important areas that APW students spend months practising in order to arrive at the final portfolio pieces. These Animation Portfolio Workshop grads are in Sheridan animation.
A huge part of the animation portfolio is the room drawing. The room drawing is an opportunity to show the animation school that you’re applying to that you have a working knowledge of 2 point perpective. For some schools, it also is a chance to pose a character within an environment.
