We've all been there. We've got to make a start on getting our art school portfolio moving. We need to start doing some work outside of school as this is what the art school tutors will be looking for – your commitment to art outside of school. But where do you start?

Since my visit down to London last week to see Rain Room at the Barbican, I have been inspired to get some digital art work finished that I've been working on (very part-time) for some time now.

I've been waiting to write this blog post for a while as it's so exciting – for me at least! When we think about line, the first visualisation for an artist is usually a line drawing, yes?
