Hey! I am most definitely applying this fall for Ringling. It's my top choice, CA. I spent the summer at their precollege program and it's phenomenal. The teachers are great and so are the facilities.
I agree with Katie! Those sound great as long as you pair them with at least a few observational / figure drawings. lol You would be surprised how many people actually submit manga/anime as portfolios. But hey, better for us people who know not to submit it I guess.
ah! I was hoping I'd find a thread like this on here. Good luck everyone! i'm a current Ringling freshman (direct acceptance to CA) if anyone has any questions!
