Big Swan, a comic series by me ( JemiDove ), used to consist of short comics starting from 2005, when I was 8 years old. Each issue was drawn based on real-life events, or from my imagination. The series' name came from the first character created, aptly named Big Swan, now renamed as Berura the Swan. Most of the cast are birds, which are my favourite animals.

However, as I grew up, I felt that my old short comics were inadequate - the stories ended as quickly as they started. Granted, they had a humourous charm to them, but I felt that my characters could be expanded upon. I felt that they would be better off on a big adventure, building stronger friendships with one another.

After redesigning and using some of my characters for school art projects and exams in 2010 & 2011, I vowed to come up with an action-packed, humourous story, which would last long enough to cover the length of at least 1 comic book. After numerous unsuccessful attempts (like Shuriken Chase , Journey of Misfortunes , and several other traditionally-coloured comics) which were discontinued because they were tiring to draw and colour traditionally, I gave up.

However, when I became a Sonic the Hedgehog fan in 2011-2012, I got exposed to tons of beautiful fanart, which motivated me to draw fanart too, and be on par with those artists. My father bought me a drawing tablet :meow: After I uploaded some fanart, I drew my Big Swan characters digitally for the first time, and uploaded them slowly, afraid that people wouldn't be interested in my series.

After gaining a reasonable amount of popularity as a Sonic fanartist on deviantART, I decided to take the leap and plan out a proper Big Swan story, once and for all. I drew character bios and wrote information for each main character/villian of my series, to let my watchers familarise themselves with my characters. On paper, I scribbled out the script, speech, dialogue - you name it - for the first few pages. I was determined to let my series live on. In fact, be better than before. I do not want my childhood memories to fade away, neither do I want what spurred me on in my interest in drawing to be forgotten.

So here you have it - in this club, there are artworks done by other artists too, as well character bios and official artwork done by myself. And of course, the main comic itself. Chapter 1: Disappearance can be found here:… I hope that you will have a look at my series, and leave a comment or two about it! Each comment/favourite motivates me to draw more.

*slowly creeps into journal while wiping dust away*

Hello fellow mortals. It is I, creator of the Big Swan comic, JemiDove. I was about to write a proper long journal, but I've been so out of touch with my watchers (and internet life) that I figured a mini-resurfacing here would be more appropriate for now.

Let's just say a lot of life-changing events have happened in real life, hence my inactivity... but today, I'm here to announce that there are huge revamps underway for Big Swan. I don't mean a complete reboot, but more like further development of my characters and world before I proceed with the comic. Though, it is likely that I will have to rewrite AND redraw the first chapter (which is all I've done so far, d'oh).

After I'm done with leftover fan art, I'll write a proper "I'M BACK FROM THE DEAD" kind of journal in my own account.

Also, there will be some shifting around of admins because of... well, relationships that I don't want to write in detail here. Both good and bad.

Anyway that's all for now, toodles!
