    I'm applying to several colleges over the break (SVA, MICA, Memphis, MCAD, SCAD, FIT, Parsons), and need advice on how to reference my freelance work from late 2012 up to now.

    Your website will always reflect the kind of business you offer so it is just in time that you update your client's website. I like the large header, but the text on the upper portion of it looks dated....

    Looks like a bull right but it needs a little bit of polishing and enhancements. Bulls have basically long, curved very pointed horns so you can work on that. And maybe fiercer eyes....

    We don't even consider applications that don't list a degree where I work, though even people with degrees can have terrible portfolios. Out of probably 30 applicants from our most recent opening, maybe...

          Good work! But I do not believe you: This is your first traced vector? You must be kidding!

            If you traced someone else's vector, then I can't really say anything except... why bother?

              We had to trace Captain America one day as an exercise in using everything we'd learned in illustrator to make a vector drawing. I was very proud of the way mine turned out.

              So I understand the OPs pride in creating their first vector from the tools they've learned to use in the software.

              But it is a trace, so really nothing to critique.

                    Show me the outline view.
                    This is technically similar to a logo. I'd be curious what your outline looks like and maybe we can give you some pointers on taking the tracing one step further in the production scheme.

                    Tracing for exercise is good. I think we all pretty much learned that way.

                      ^^^^ I'm with PD on this one. Your image looks good, but the people around here can make you better. Of course, that's why we're all here...to keep pushing each other.

                        straight lines are easy! do something with some curves. really learn that pen tool!!

                        This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                        there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                          We had to trace the Offspring logo (see below) in school to practice using the pen/bezier tools. It was as good exercise to get you used to drawing curves.
