:bulletorange: My formal portfolio:

Student artist who aspires to be a videogame artist. My life goal though, is to make games with my soulmate Axolotlet and friends! And also to realise my Big Swan universe and characters into a videogame, if not a comic.

Currently a graphic design student, though I have little passion in that field and intend to further studies in Animation after my diploma.

I have my own comic series, "Big Swan", which originated from my home-made comic series way back in 2005. The series stars my own cartoon/anthropomorphic bird characters, along with a few other animal characters. It is my dream to realise Big Swan as a videogame of the platformer genre, incorporating elements of platformer sub-genres (e.g. Metroidvania, brawler, run-and-gun, precision platformer) for each playable character. Probably have to simplify it but that's a rough outline for now.

I have a HUGE respect and admiration for indie creators - be they artists, game developers, musicians or writers. :la: I guess it's mainly because I grew up playing a lot of (obscure but awesome) indie games, and only got sucked into my first popular fandom (Sonic the Hedgehog) quite late compared to most people. ^v^;

Artist/Creator inspirations: Dean Dodrill, Desmond Wong, Nur Aiysha Plemping, Trudi & Asti Castle, Laura Shigihara, Dan Paladin, Jazza,

My closest friends - the Blastiful Bunch [BB]!
Originally the just name of our TF2/gaming clan, our friendship has grown through meeting up for art events and just geeking out on common interests. :) Hope to work with them on our own projects someday (starting with boothing at local art events with Cats, and then making games with Axo with the help of everyone)!

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 :ohnoes:

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 literal and has lame sense of humour
-HATES seemingly innocent things which turn out to be sinister *cough* Happy Tree Friends *cough* ...people call me innocent or pure lol.
-Dislikes blood & gore. :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).
-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, blue, green, purple :bulletorange::bulletblue::bulletgreen::bulletpurple:
-Favourite videogame genres: Action-adventure, Platformer, Beat-em-up / Brawler, Run-and-gun shooters, Metroidvania. (dislikes turned-based games, casual games and tactical 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 cooking due to fear of physical hazards (fire & sharp objects like knives)

Drawing environment assets/props for a game internship test! Can't talk much though, gotta focus!
Bird bandits
(Can I just be a rebel and relieve some steam by drawing my own thing instead of working on FYP? :P )

Drawn listening to Morgan David King's EDM playlist, 'Phoenix' to be specific.…

Oh yeah these bird bandits were from my 2012 attempt at drawing a digital comic, though they originally appeared as ninja birds in my childhood comics around 2006-7. The pole-wielder is named Lava, the grenade-holding one Ochre. Based on their colours as they appeared in my comic: (they've been renamed yeah)

Wanted to test my speed while maintaining decent lineart, trying to be less perfectionist with that. This actually only took an hour, but another hour was wasted shading and then scrapping the shading because it looked like crap and defeated the purpose of a 'quick' doodle.

Alright I've passed my first assessment on the project, I get to work with the concept I wanted, aww yeah :dummy: I'm juggling this major project along with three other major stakeholders of my near future (*cough* portfolio preparations for university/internship applications *cough*) so I apologise in advance if I don't update as frequently as I hope to. I'm barely alive as I speak lol

Current status of the project:

  • Theme: Solitude & Loneliness
  • Tone: Introspective, dark-ish setting

  • Illustration/Animation phase:
    18 Jan: Heavy illustration!

Characters and their voice-actors (BACKUPS WELCOME TO APPLY EVEN IF SLOTS ARE FILLED!!:

  1. Narrator
    Tone of voice is up to interpretation. Male/female.
    Bullet; Green Confirmed VA: NekoHimeAnny
    Bullet; Orange Backup VAs: Phaenur

  2. The Kid / Lone Wolf spirit
    Androgynous kid. High-pitched boy voice, maybe an edgier Tails from the Sonic franchise (could be voiced by a lady).
    Bullet; Green Confirmed VA: TheM-VA
    Bullet; Orange Backup VAs: Abc123-IX

  3. Moose(s) (and their human counterparts). Can have multiple confirmed VAs.
    Wise-sounding, mellow. Need 1 main male voice, supporting male/female voices are welcome!
    Bullet; Green Confirmed VAs: TheJege12 (main),
    Bullet; Orange Backup VAs: ZKCats111, (supporting), NekoHimeAnny (supporting) ,

  4. Wolves (and their human counterparts). Can have multiple confirmed VAs.
    Nasty-sounding! Try to sound hoarse/scratchy if possible, otherwise just speaking normally but in a nasty/annoyed tone works too!
    Bullet; Green Confirmed VAs: Explodering, NekoHimeAnny, TigerPegasus
    Bullet; Orange Backup VAs: ???


People who have expressed interest (let me know what you think):

:iconthem-va: - THE KID (CONFIRMED)
:iconphaenur: - NARRATOR (PLACEHOLDER). You might be interested in voicing one of the Wolves?
:iconplayrina: - I've heard your voice work, sorry if I didn't get back to you earlier!! :ohnoes: I appreciate your interest, however I don't think you'd be suited for The Kid. You'd be better fitted as one of the Wolves, if you're interested! Let me know what you think. (I do feel that your mic might be a little on a scratchy side though, I apologise in advance if you aren't shortlisted in the end because of that.)
:iconcarinaconstellation: - Need voice work samples. Interested in the Narrator role but you might wanna consider the Mooses or Wolves?
:iconthejege12: - I know how you sound like, buuut I'm still concerned about the accent... XD (don't worry bro, I have an unfavourable accent too :XD: ) You might fit the main Moose though! :D
:iconsamuraiechidna: - ? Need voice work samples.
:iconstagasus: - I know how you sound like, I think you'd be best fitted for one of the Wolves.

People whom I think could fit in (if you'd like to): 

:iconaxolotlet: - Heheh I know you too well, perhaps you could fit one of the Wolves. ;)
:iconexplodering: - I also know you kinda well lol maybe the Narrator (backup) or one of the Wolves (SPEAK IN YOUR SALTIEST VOICE POSSIBRU YEAAAH)
:iconzkcats111: - supporting Moose? (just a few lines)
:icontigerpegasus: - one of the Wolves? (just a few lines)

Before I end this announcement, I just wanna say how MUCH I appreciate everyone's unwavering support in me and my turbulent college years thus far - friend, follower, admired artist, passing commentor - all of you. Thank you. So, so much. Just a few months more!
