Just call me Jemi
Artist | Student | Varied
Singapore
A wannabe animator/game designer who ended up studying 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 chance 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

:heart: My best/closest buddies on dA! :D (in no order) :heart:
:iconaxolotlet::iconiluvcats111::iconjemidove::iconcharred-heart::iconexplodering::icontigerpegasus:

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 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.

Some stuff about me:

-Rather down-to-earth
-Dislikes blood & gore. A lot. :stare: I avoid playing games with gore (with the exception of TF2, because it is highly stylized and cartoonish that I can bear the gore just enough to play the game).
-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.

The Waking Dead - Infographic wall mural by JemiDove
The Waking Dead - Infographic wall mural
[Download for full view]

A super huge and demanding assignment that caused me an average of 3 hours of sleep each night or no sleep at all (on top of other assignments). x_x;; So glad that it's over. My lecturer liked how I incorporated elements of my theme (e.g. the tombstones as a bar graph, some ritual markings on the ground as a pie chart). Speaking of the  theme, I decided to portray my school's design students as zombies constantly doing the same things over and over (staying up late to do assignments, sleep deprived). We were tasked to create an infographic on "student life" (some of my classmates' sub-topics: food/dietary habits, materials used by design students, teachers, fashion sense, e.t.c) and I decided to go ahead with sleep deprivation, the most relatable aspect of being a design student, I feel.

Will upload close ups of the zombies sometime in the future. Perhaps even print them on sticker paper to sell at my school's fund-raising fair this year. But for now I'm too exshausted to be browsing around dA...and I need sleep...

IN A REAL RUSH THOUGH, THIS INFOGRAPHIC IS DUE ON THURSDAY
Won't be chatting much due to the rush, so apologies if I 'ignore' the chat.

...let's see how much I can focus while streaming and being sleep-deprived

I finally figured out how to make the brush tool in Adobe Illustrator pressure-sensitive.

:iconsoldiertf2: Today is a good day :D Looking forward to creating vector art with hand-drawn lineart!

And to think I had been forcing myself to use the painful Pen Tool with neverending rounds of intense mouse-clicking and dragging for my Year 1 assignments.... :facepalm:

Well... holiday's over, school has resumed. Learning Tactile Design, Information Design and Kinetic Graphics (Adobe AfterEffects) this term. One of my lecturers said it's one of the most intensive terms in my graphic design course so I hope I won't slack or be complacent and snowball my assignments >w< Looking forward to the AfterEffects lessons - it's the closest I can get to Animation in my field of study!

Mm I can definitely say that my mind's been sorted out a lot the past few months - I no longer get easily depressed about school and life, and now I have better self-control over slipping into my "lament-mode" :P Simply put, I overthink much less now. As much as I want to remain childish, maturing in spirit helps put my heart and mind at peace.

And to top it off, I...ahaha...let's just say I'm glad to have met a guy who feels the same way I do :B And I wasn't even actively seeking for one ahaha... uh I'd talk more, but I guess there's a limit to how much can be said on the internetz.

Now if you'll excuse me I have school assignments to tackle *rocketjumps away*
Cockatoo Ruins concepts 140615 by JemiDove
Cockatoo Ruins concepts 140615
For an artwork I'm working on. Also for future use - been wanting to illustrate concept art of the Cockatoo Tribe which my character, Shuri the Cockatoo ( fav.me/d5q52fs fav.me/d71kv55 ) belongs to. She's an archer, and the guardian of the temples. Also a part-time tour guide for travellers.

Of the major areas in which my 'Big Swan' universe would take place in, the jungle would be one of the major ones - a contrast to the high-tech theme of the villians' headquarters.

Don't think I've forgotten these drawings that some of you have done for me in the past! They always motivate me to develop my concepts :meow:

I don't like using the colour pink, but hey symbolism d'hurr

...I dunno what else to say...there's too much to say that I'd feel weird just talking about it *nervous grin* WELL BASICALLY NEITHER OF US ASKED FOR THIS BUT WE CLICK SO WELL AHAHAHA *nervous laughter*

Aaanyway, now when I listen to "Wizard" by All Levels At Once the lyrics seem to take on a different meaning now. Hmm. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ek3TyO… It's "that kind" of song hurrhurr

...and in case any of ya'all are wonderin', I'm not the overly-mushy kinda person so I tried to portray my "stiff" reaction to...this whole thing X'D But under that mask is a twisted smile huehuehue

Time taken: On and off between 24-31 May 2015. Uh I think around 8-12 hours? Need to speed uppppp

[don't mind my talking-to-self comments]

I'm not into cosplaying...but if I ever do, I'd cosplay as either the TF2 Medic, or Cadence from Crypt of the Necrodancer. The latter seems easier to do.

The blond hair though... I don't wanna wear a wig or dye my hair :XD:

EDIT: Now that I think about it... I think I'd pass off as an okay Miss Pauling (TF2). People keep telling me I've got the "studious" face :facepalm: But the skirt - I'm not used to wearing that kind of non-flowy skirt :P But at least her hair's black like mine :XD: ....and a certain someone could be my *ahem* Scout* *ahem*Axolotlet

IN MY DREAMS. HAHAHAHA *chokes on laughter*
... *rolls back to school work*

My favourite string instrument (cello) combined with my favourite Muse song (and I'm not even a fan of rock, I'm more of an electronic music fan)

Your gallery is really amazing- it made me go WOW. I'm pretty envious that you can push yourself to draw so much and you have something you're really passionate about. AHHAHA I haven't done any digital drawings on SAI for a while.

The world is so small and I totally feel you not sleeping just for school. Lots of people ask me why didn't I choose to go to JC when I could go to quite a number of JCs with my results but I guess passion does paves a way for one to venture towards. ALL I HOPE FOR RIGHT NOW IS TO KEEP MY PASSION because i'm really really really scared of losing interest and regret even more than I have been since I do like studying a lot after all.

I'm sure you'll be able to become an Animator in future since your drive seems really strong and your goal is clearly kept in mind! Oh and THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to look through my gallery and commenting HAHAH
