So I recently barfed out an artdump. Time to focus on quality instead of quantity. *holds back current Sonic fan art to add in a digitally painted background*

Caught a flu during the time I spent scanning for the artdump. Slight fever too. But I've gotten better since a few days ago when I first fell sick.

Acquaintances

I dare not say who my dA friends are; I prefer to remain alone. But you'll probably find out who they are through my interactions with certain deviants. :XD:

So I settled for 'Acquaintances' as the heading for this. 8D

If you had a theme song, what would it be? Comment with links!

5 deviants said The song(s) should represent your personality and taste in music; don't just assume that a certain song could be a possible theme song simply because you like it. It has to represent you! ;)

3 deviants said The song(s) that play if you entered a battle scene in a videogame (in our dreams HAHA)

1 deviant said Don't just post existing theme songs of characters from videogames, shows, e.t.c., I'd like to see songs which aren't currently associated with any character or thing. (if you're posting a bunch of songs, then feel free to post an existing theme or two)

1 deviant said (I'm just really really curious to see how people associate themselves with different types of music) :XD:

No deviants said Y'know, the song(s) you would like to be associated with. If you had a personal website, this music would play in the background

JemiDove's Profile Picture
JemiDove
Just call me Jemi
Artist | Student | Varied
Singapore
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 where I'd like to be, but I guess they mean well for me.

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'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.

Right now, I'm enjoying a looong and relaxing post-secondary school break. I've just started my Communication Design course in mid-April, 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.

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: Blue, orange, green, purple
-Favourite videogame genres: Action-adventure / Platformer / Fighter (dislikes turned-based games and casual games)
-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.

EDIT: GOAL NOT MET ON TIME NUUUUUU
Now everyone knows what the artists they watch are up to when they aren't drawing. :eyes: (they're fav-bombing muahaha)
Wait, wha-? We can talk about tags too? Tags that contain multiple words ridiculously mashed together? #thatisjustridiculous
Am I the only one who feels intimidated by how large the font size of the status updates are? Oh my. Did I scare you? D8 My apologies! >w< *pats back of whoever's reading this* 

And the small font size of the comments below them doesn't aid reading. It hurts my eyes to read from a huge font size to a small one at such close proximity. >:U

I always felt that status updates were unnecessary. But eh. They exist for those who want 'em.
  • Mood: Yearning
  • Listening to: Saito Games' soundtracks
  • Reading: Character Mentor by tombancroft
  • Watching: you
  • Playing: Freedom Planet (just bought it! :D )
  • Eating: Banana
  • Drinking: Water
Welp, the 1.5 months of vacation is finally here. :dummy: School has been really hectic so far, and the late/sleepless nights have taken a toll on my health...I wonder how I'll make it through another 2 and a half years here. I'm pretty sure I didn't do well for typography >_<;;

Since school started in April, I've accumulated a mass of sketches to relieve stress (pfft, like I had the time or energy to. Should've practiced technical drawing skills instead of drawing to de-stress so much).

For you Singaporean watchers, I'll be attending STGCC 2014 (Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention) on 6 September (Saturday). Naw, not as an exhibitor but just as an attendee :XD: It'll be my first time attending such an event, and I'm looking forward to it! :D *has to rely on classmates to guide me around like a blind person*

Anyway, here's my to-do list for the holidays!

:bulletred: CONTEST (deadline 15 Sep) : lanitsed
:bulletred: COLLAB with TheJege12
:bulletred: ART TRADE with Carinaconstellation : Carina & Jemi, me: same.
:bulletred: ART TRADE with haphwei : Jade and Rula fav.me/d6t8rd0
:bulletred: COMMISSION: rubycored
:bulletred: Continue fan art tributes to videogames of my childhood and teenagehood (up next: Mage Bros)

:bulletorange: Practice drawing realistic human faces, heads, hands, feet, anatomy, poses (at different angles!!) *whispers portfolio and own practice*
:bulletorange: Upload (scan/photograph) sketches, compile into sketchdump TOP PRIORITY TO PREVENT SNOWBALLING OF SKETCHDUMP

:bulletblue: Drawing of a cat/collage of cats for my brother (traditional)
:bulletblue: Sculpt my OCs :dummy: (especially Berura the Swan...I need to get a better idea of how her face would look like at different angles)
:bulletblue: Finish Castle Crashers with :iconlightdasher360: (Red) :iconcardinalcompanion: (Blue) :iconexplodering: (Green, level 16). I'm Orange, level 18 for this playthrough.
:bulletyellow: Peatail animation?



Also, I've recently got in touch with James Saito of Saito Games (a.k.a. JJsoft), creator of a number of my childhood videogames :D It feels so surreal to even think of being able to talk to someone whom you admire as a kid. When I first laid my eyes on his games when I was 6 years old, I never thought I'd see the day when I'd talk to the creator himself as a 16 year-old, ten years later. As a kid, I always felt that creators - be it game devs, animators, movie makers e.t.c. were all 'up there', out there, out of my reach, leaving only me to marvel at their works...but 10 years have passed and the internet has changed all of that. :') Funny how I'm not one who strikes up conversations easily and yet am able to communicate with someone whom I thought I wouldn't be able to talk to ever *_*

Now if you'll excuse me I'll move to one corner to wipe a tear from my eye

Anyway, that's all for now. Jemi signing off!
The vacation ends on 19 October :P

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Q: What languages do you know?
A: English and Chinese (Mandarin). I understand the Cantonese dialect as well, but I can't speak it. :XD:

Q: What programs do you use?
A: PaintToolSAI (for most of my works), Adobe Photoshop CS6 (for some of my works and school work), Adobe Illustrator CS6 (for vector artwork, mainly for school work).

Q: Do you use a tablet?
A: Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch tablet, received on 16 January 2012 as a gift :meow:

Q: When did you start drawing?
A: Like most people, I doodle a lot ^^; I've been drawing homemade comics of my original characters since 2004, many of which have gotten redesigns. However, I didn't really get into drawing seriously until 2012, when I got my drawing tablet and got hooked onto deviantART. :XD: I was a pretty new Sonic fan at that time, too, so seeing the impressive fanart here spurred me on even more.

Q: When did you become a Sonic fan?
A: Early 2011, around the time Sonic Generations was announced. My first Sonic game was Sonic Heroes (PC) though :XD: Heard of Sonic from a PC game series, Jazz Jackrabbit (it had gameplay elements similar to Sonic).

Q: Favourite Sonic characters?
A: Silver, Tails, Cream, and Wave. I don't hate the other characters, I'm just neutral towards them :)

Q : What gaming systems do you have?
A: Playstation 3, Windows 8 PC (which has Steam in it). That's all.

Q: ARE YOU THE CREATOR OF "[MMD] SONIC GANGNAM STYLE"?
A: YES I AM BUT I DON'T EVEN LIKE THE WHOLE GANGNAM STYLE FAD. My other videos had much more effort put into them, too >_<

Q: Give me :points: points plz
A: LOL NOPE I worked hard to earn them through contests and commissions :U

Q: Will you be my friend?
A: On first conversation, no. I believe that friendship is cultivated overtime through shared experiences/interests, not just by asking :stare: On top of that, I'm not a very chatty person...I know that the people whom I consider as friends definitely don't bug me with "Hello" comments every week just for the sake of striking up a conversation with no head or tail. I know I'm being picky like this, but 'tis the internet, I cannot be friends with everyone :P
