|My first fanart of "Dust: An Elysian Tail"! Took me 20+ hours. This is part of my tribute to the videogame characters of my childhood and teenagehood. Here're the completed ones so far:|
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* 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. I'm also constantly on the lookout for outstanding indie games to enjoy (and draw fanart for)~
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.
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.

Some stuff about me:
-Dislikes blood & gore. A lot.
-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 )
-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 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.

I was a pretty new Sonic fan at that time, too, so seeing the impressive fanart here spurred me on even more.

Q: Will you be my friend?
A: On first conversation, no.

I know I'm being picky like this, but 'tis the internet, I cannot be friends with everyone
