JemiDove's Profile Picture
Just call me Jemi
Artist | Student | Varied
A wannabe animator/game 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

:heart: My best/closest buddies on dA! :D (in no order) :heart:

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:

-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.

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 ( ) 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: (the last one is my own art. Look at the derpy temple woohoo)

Pai seh by JemiDove
Pai seh
So shy
So cheesy
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.… 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

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

[WIP] Shoulder punch by JemiDove
[WIP] Shoulder punch

A guy confessed to me and I have the same feelings for him and we click very well in personalities and ideals and goals/dreams WE ARE SO DARN LUCKY.

On the other hand, I think my previous first one-sided crush on another guy has taught me to be patient and committed rather than impulsive. Still feeling embarrassed about it, but in a way I'm glad it happened back then rather than now.

LET THE TEASING COMMENCE! *runs to a corner* my classmates have already been teasing me the past one week aaa

Don't cry, Markers
A hidden gift and meaning behind this.

Have a hug. You need one.

Experimented with the lighting; I don't like it but it could've been worse.

So one day I finally watched the Leeroy Jenkins meme video ... (origin: World of Warcraft)

...and then the next night, I had a dream where I was playing Team Fortress 2 with a friend (not specified in the dream, but I know it's a TF2 playmate) - his Steam name was "LEEROY" and mine was "JENKINS". And we were performing the medic-chain, where one medic activates the uber to make both of them invincible, while the other builds up his/her Ubercharge before the first uber runs out by trying to get 4 sucessful hits with the Ubersaw, each hit filling up 25% of the meter. When the first medic's uber runs out, the other medic activates the second one while the first medic switches to the melee weapon (Ubersaw). Rinse and repeat - a never-ending cycle of hilarity. XD

In the dream, we were getting this in the killfeed at the top-right corner of my eye (screen):
" LEEROY + JENKINS [Ubersaw kill icon] [player who just got killed by us] "

It was so funny that I had to try it out. I did it with a couple of dA/Steam friends, but the most noticable "Leeroy" was :iconaxolotlet:, mainly because we had voicechat on and the laughter was contagious. XD

It was really a dream come true, getting "LEEROY + JENKINS [Ubersaw kill icon] [player who just got killed by us]" in the killfeed. And we topped the scoreboards with almost the same scores. :rofl: Love watching the enemy team retreat into their base like turtles pulling their heads into their shell, wahahahaahaaaaa

Leeroy Jenkins by Axolotlet
and I drew this sketch LEEROY JENKINS (Axolotlet and JemiDove) 100515 by JemiDove (to be completed when I have more free time) :D

Anyway that's all, I know this doesn't warrant a full-blown journal entry but I really miss hanging out with my dA buds and drawing fan art. :XD:

EDIT - here's an example of medic-chain:

Hello, friend. I just wanted to stop by to tell you something important that needs to be said, just in case no one else says it.

X You're not any of the following:
--A failure

Checkmark So what are you? You are:

Sunny And because you exist, the world is:
--A better place.

:aww: I hope this brightens up your day, but most importantly, I hope you remember this for as long as you live.
And if you really want to, Copy + Paste this to 10 other people you care about. It's not mandatory, just making you feel better is reward enough. But maybe, if we spread the word together, we can make this world a little better for everyone!

Music (genre) of the week: Future Bass
Hyper Potions - Porta Vista…
Deon Custom - Roses…

Been falling in love with this subgenre of electronic music recently. Funny how I discovered it just a few days before the new Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice trailer used Porta Vista. :XD:
