|Team Fortress 2 fan art. Took me 40-50 hours. This is part of my tribute to the significant videogame characters of my life. Here're the completed ones so far (reversed chronological order of artwork completion)|
A wannabe animator/game designer who ended up studying graphic design because my parents don't have confidence in my country's animation and videogame industries (not because I couldn't). *sigh* 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, and then work on the art side of videogames. That'd be my dream career. Anyway...|
Welcome to my profile page! Sonic the Hedgehog was the first active/mainstream 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). And now, I'm into Team Fortress 2, probably the first and only popular online multiplayer game I've ever played. I also keep an eye on other game series such as Halo, Assassin's Creed, Uncharted and Infamous. I hope to draw more fanart of all these games 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.
My closest friends on dA
My significant other~
The 'axolotl', the 'Leeroy' of the medic chain in TF2. I'm 'Jenkins'
My BEST friend on dA AND in real life!
'Cats', the 'Sonic' of SG-Sonic-Fans-Club. I'm the 'Silver'
Another great friend of the Singapore Sonic trio
'Charred', the 'Shadow' of SG-Sonic-Fans-Club
A friend from across the Causeway
'Exploder', the big blur brudder chicken box of markers from a neighbouring kampong
Great gaming buddy and friend :>
'Tiger', sister to my best friend Cats
'Jege', one of the quickest and coolest animator-artists I've met, and a fun person to be around with!
My digital art sensei >:U
'Tusk'. I cannot emphasise enough how much he has made my digital art workflow better ~(u_u)~
'Bsumo', one of my earliest watchers and dA friends. Love his style, AND his OCs!
'Carina', my very first dA watcher whom I did not meet previously on other sites and constant supporter in my art journey. It's an honour to have met you AND still keep in touch often!
The Hong Kong Sonic fanartist trio~
'Hei/Ching', 'Icy' and 'Souyuu/MW'. Always a pleasure to interact with you all and watch your streams
People I know in real life
I shall not mention your real names, but thanks for having a direct impact on me as a person and artist ;_; ESPECIALLY THE FIRST ONE. THANKS FOR INTRODUCING ME TO DEVIANTART WHICH LED ME ON MY ART JOURNEY TO WHERE I AM TODAY, starting as a crazed Sonic fan lurking and favouriting art. OH AND TEAM FORTRESS 2 TOO. My first online multiplayer game with tons of active players :U
...there's more, but we've not kept in touch frequently enough
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.
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:
-Dislikes blood & gore. 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 )
-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: Electro / Drum 'n' Bass (DnB) / Future Bass / Electro Swing / 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.
