Just call me Jemi
Artist | Student | Varied
Don't mind my character (Berura the Swan) staring at you from my profile pic. :XD: She isn't always like this; she's usually demure.

A wannabe animator/game art designer who ended up in graphic design because my parents don't have confidence in my country's animation industry (not because I couldn't). *sigh* :shrug: Graphic design isn't what I'd like to do as a career, but I guess they mean well for me. Hopefully I'll do well enough to get a change to study Animation at university level when I graduate from this Graphic Design diploma course.

Welcome to my profile page! Sonic the Hedgehog was the first active videogame series I got into. Prior to that, I had only played obscure PC indie games. Since then, I've also gotten into other videogames series such as Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, and other action-adventure games (plus points if there's tons of platforming). I hope to draw more fanart of those series when I have the time. :meow: I'm also constantly on the lookout for outstanding indie games to enjoy (and draw fanart for)~ :XD:

I do have some Original Characters (OCs), as well as my own comic series entitled "Big Swan" revolving around these characters. I do not have any Fan Characters (FCs).I also draw artworks reflecting the things and people I encounter in real life. :D


I completed my GCE 'O' Level examinations in 2013 (I did not take Art as a subject and I regret it because I'm lagging behind my classmates ;w; ) and I'm currently studying Communication Design at a local polytechnic. Not because I couldn't get into a Junior College (JC), but because I chose to head down this path instead.

I've enrolled in a Communication Design diploma course in April 2014, and have been drawing a lot (but not being around on dA) of things I don't usually draw. It has been a good (but PRESSURISING!) experience so far to be surrounded by people with similar interests and skills. School sucks up almost all of my time and energy so apologies if I don't reply to your messages immediately.

Other accounts. Please let me know who you are before adding me as a friend/contact. I won't just add any random person XD

Some stuff about me:

-Rather down-to-earth
-Dislikes blood & gore. A lot. :stare:
-Has been self-taught until enrolment in Communication Design in 21 April 2014 (so you can look at the dates on my deviations to see how I fared on my own before that :XD: )
-Fractal art is the only art form which I detest (to the point of being fearful when looking at it) >_<
-Favourite animals: Birds (especially waterbirds), fish, exotic animals.
-Favourite colours: Orange, purple, blue, green
-Favourite videogame genres: Action-adventure / Platformer / Fighter / 3rd-person shooters (dislikes turned-based games, casual games and certain 1st-person shooters)
-Favourite music genres: Techno / Drum 'n' Bass (DnB) / Trance / Electronica / Glitch Hop / String instrument music (especially the cello, for some reason).
-Dislikes shiny, glittery attention-grabbing things (especially on clothes)
-I can play the piano, but I was home-taught only until Grade 3. My mum is a music teacher, but was too busy to continue teaching me :( I now learn songs by ear on my own for fun.
-I was the Section Leader of Alto of my secondary school's choir (2012-2013).
-Favourite Sonic characters: Silver the Hedgehog, Miles 'Tails' Prower, Cream the Rabbit, Wave the Swallow.
-I don't follow and didn't grow up with much anime/manga series much unlike my peers :P I'm just neutral towards the style. Same goes for western cartoons/comics actually, though my drawing style seems to lean more towards that side. But I believe I'm equally influenced by both Japanese and Western styles.

Figure drawings 050514 by JemiDove
Figure drawings 050514
2-3 minute brush & ink figure drawings of my classmates. Those which I didn't draw so well aren't displayed here ^^;
It was an adrenaline-rushing experience, we had to draw so quickly that I didn't have much time to even take out a fresh new sheet of paper properly without crumpling it :ohnoes: I'm actually surprised that I drew them better than expected, and my teacher kept praising me for having a good grasp of gesture and proportions. :iconcannotevenplz: He even held up the very first one (top-left) for the entire class to refer to as an example :faint: I felt so humbled, yet proud of myself at the same time.

And yes, those slippers are the ones drawn in my very first deviantID: Jemi deviantID 060713

EDIT: Y'know, I actually really want to know how much would a single piece cost if it were a commission. Or are these even worthy of being commissions? Gah.

Haymarn's break 051214 by JemiDove
Haymarn's break 051214
A farewell gift to my family's domestic helper who's returning to her village in Myanmar for a break :) (she really looks that young btw)

She has returned back here to work a few days ago, and she said when she showed this to her village's people, they were very amused (laughing even) and commented that it portrayed the majority of her people well, in terms of emotions and attire. :XD:

I kinda messed up on her back arm length (perspective! grah), her feet and the angle of the luggage handle, but since it's a loose and quick drawing, I don't think they're too jarring.

...was a success! No complications whatsover :D The surgeon told me there was a risk losing my sense of taste and touch in my tongue and lower lip PERMANENTLY FOR LIFE, but thankfully that didn't happen :squee: The numbess wore off half a day later.

The surgery was surprisingly smooth, it started at 9am and it was finished at 9.30am. Because I was injected with anasthesia (and had to breathe in the sleeping gas too), I was unconscious throughout the entire thing and only woke up at 10am. My mom came in to see me at 11am. The nurses monitored my vital signs and changed the two pieces of gauze in my mouth and gave me medicine/painkillers till 12pm and said I was ready to discharge. But since my upper left wisdom tooth cavity was still in pain, I requested to rest for another 30 minutes. I thought the nurse would wake me up at 12.30pm, but nope. I woke up on my own at 1pm instead (and I had a Castle Crashers game to play with my friends, what timing!)

...on the way home I started to feel breathless and dizzy, so after taking my 2nd dose of medicine, I rested for a bit more. I could only use one finger (my right thumb or index finger) to type on my mobile phone, as my left hand would hurt if twisted to use the left thumb due to the injection. =w=;; Good thing I play most PC games with the keyboard. Had I used a controller, the pain would be unbearable (have to twist my hand the same way as using a mobile phone). With a keyboard, it's just like playing the piano - fingers hammering down on the keys :D But still, I should've spent that time just resting and not exerting myself, whoops. ^^;

Anyway, I can't talk properly now, and it hurts when I laugh, smile, give a sad face, clench my jaws together or open them wide. So I kinda have to bear with this..."default" pokerface expression I have for a while. :XD: (it makes me look stern aaah) What are humans without facial expressions? >.<;;

I can only eat soft (and preferably cold food) for a week or two. That means beancurd, mashed potato, and ice-cream. And I have to drink any liquids with a straw to prevent the liquid from touching my wounds - I've tried with water, and even that hurts! DX Looks like I won't be able to enjoy the annual Christmas dinner (with turkey and whatnot) with my family this year, but it's the time spent together that counts! I'm really glad to have re-established my faith in Christ, He gives me firm footing in whatever life throws at me. I don't feel as lost as I used to be back in secondary school. :nod:

Also, wow, since when did I accumulate close to 1000 watchers THIS IS SCARING ME! :ohnoes: But thanks for the support over the years :) Art-wise, I haven't improved much digitally, so I don't think I'll be compiling a 2014 Art Summary unlike previous years. But man the exposure to classmates of similar (and even better) skill levels as myself sure was pressurising. I really hope I can make it into the Illustration specialisation in Year 2, it's my only escape from the bizarre and abstract world of advertising and graphic design.

To end off, I wish you all an early Merry Christmas and happy New Year! :) I might update this with a list of New Year resolutions.

It's too bad that we are both smart...

Otherwise we could have arguments like this.…
