Your gesture drawings and life drawings I think are fabulous and very fascinating :D.. I need to start working on them myself!
@Jane-- Creepy. Maybe we are computer twins, and if we ever meet, one of our computers will explode.
Anyway... on my old pc I sometimes have to wait a second or two for my brushstrokes to show up on a high dpi document. D: Pretty awful. I'm glad there even are minimum computer requirements, it makes me feel like upgrading is more of an investment than a selfish purchase. :)
Another word of advice-- use this next year to enroll in classes that you can transfer to CalArts like basic math and writing courses. You can call the school about what types of courses are transferrable. That way, when you get to Calarts, you don't have to spend time on critical studies work when you want to be animating. And if you do decide to go for another art school, you can always transfer those courses there.
Wow, thanks for doing all this research and sharing it with us! Good thing I'm in the process of building a new pc, my old one has been around for six years or so and doesn't even have a video card. Yikes. It's had some upgrades, but still.
