My motivation is to see people happy after I´m done with [my drawings] ////v\\\\

―Yamio, from her page

Emilia (born January 28, 1995 (1995-01-28) [age 22]) known as Yamio (also commonly known as YamioSama or Yamiipon) is a digital artist from Sweden. She is currently one of the most popular Speedpainters (users who create drawing process videos) on YouTube, and the largest artist within her selective style, Anime, Manga, and Chibi illustrations. She is even more well known on her DeviantArt page, which has more than 1.1 million pageviews and 36k watchers.


Yamio mainly uploads "Speedpaints" (also referred to as Speedarts or Drawing Process Videos), in which a recording is taken of an illustration she is drawing, and eventually is shorted to about 10 minutes, and uploaded to YouTube with music or commentary. Often, these videos are of commissioned pieces or gifts, but she also frequently draws fanart, especially of her favorite television show, Steven Universe.

Her preferred style is Anime and Manga, stating before that she enjoys being able to have the creative freedom that realistic art cannot provide. Yami also enjoys drawing Chibis, and explained that while she initially had no plans to draw them, it eventually became her most frequently commissioned style, to the point in which it become the majority of her DeviantArt gallery. Eventually, some people began to label her as a "Chibi Artist," so she embraced the style and stated that she grew to love it.

Once in a while, Yamio uploads tutorials, explaining how she draws certain elements and/or showing certain tips n' tricks within Paint Tool SAI, her preferred drawing program. Her most popular tutorial explains how to create Lineart in SAI, and is the second most viewed video overall on her channel.

On her channel, Yamio often streams her drawings live. She has no set schedule for streaming, but streams tends to stream about once or twice a week. She explained that she enjoys streaming, as it gives her a chance to interact with her fans, receive live feedback on her drawings, as well as be given the chance to show off her current drawing skills. (Her YouTube videos are usually 5–6 months behind the completion of the piece, due to her "one drawing a week" schedule.)
