Animation Portfolio Requirements

Students applying for admission into the Animation major must submit a portfolio of 10-15 samples of artwork that may include: life drawings, illustrations, cartoons, comic strips, comic books, sketches, paintings and other visual materials. Please do not send traced pictures or copies of other people’s work.

Animation faculty will review your portfolio and are hoping to gain insight into how you approach creative work and to assess your personal style and artistic interests. Please include a few drawings that demonstrate character personality or that reveal character motivation (a storytelling drawing), as these are especially useful in assessing your skill as an animator. 

Submissions are made through Slide Room, which can be accessed through the Common Application. LMU currently accept Images, Videos and .PDF documents. If you have a text document to submit, please convert the document to a .PDF format before submitting.
