Most of the television shows and films we love were animated by several artists in the animation industry but only a few of them earn the praise they deserve. There are hundreds of animators in the competitive market but among them are those who stand out for their commitment to the craft, the super characters they created contributes to the development of the animation industry in general. A list of contemporary animators making waves on social media would be incomplete without Domics, a hard-working young man who boasts a flourishing career that covers comedy, storytelling, and animation.
Who is Domics? (Bio & Age)
Have you ever wondered why Domics is a household name among people with great interest in animated videos? The reason is that he plies his trade on multiple platforms. The YouTuber cum animator was born in Manila, Philippines, on the 27th of September 1990. His real name is Dominic Panganiban but other details about his childhood, family background, and early life are not available online.
In one of Domics videos titled: ‘My Ancestry Results’ which was uploaded online some time ago, it was mentioned that he is a relative of renowned Filipino singer, Lani Misalucha and that the YouTuber is 1% Indian and part Polynesian.
The Canadian-based animator is said to have graduated from Ryerson University, where he majored in Architectural Science. He also does freelance work from his home in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
Domics started his online career in 2010 when he designed a webcomic called Domics to be posted on Tumblr. After recording a high-speed success and amassing about a hundred thousand followers on Tumblr, the animator switched his interest to YouTube and later launched his channel called DOMICS in 2012.
The Filipino internet sensation basically uploads animated videos about his life, thoughts, aspects of both, and general topics on his channel. His channel has over 6 million subscribers and more than 850 million views as of early 2019. In addition to YouTube, you can get to watch his videos on websites such as the Malay Mail Online, NewNowNext, as well as CBS News’ website.
Domics has been with Channel Frederator Network, a multi-channel YouTube Channel. He joined the firm in November 2014, but before then, he worked for a similar channel called Fullscreen.
The YouTuber picked up the name “Domics” in his budding years when he was drawing online comics. He derived the moniker by combining his real name “Dominic” and the word “comics.” In the course of his career, Domics has worked with notable YouTubers and animators such as Jaiden Animations, TheOdd1sOut, and FootofaFerret.
His Net Worth
Domics’ years in the online business have been quite rewarding. He is one of the industry’s animators making it big on YouTube and other beneficial platforms. Being an old hand in the game and someone with an active mind, we are not surprised that he has a reasonable net worth estimated at $2.1 million. The animator basically made his wealth from YouTube and he’s hoping to broaden his horizons in order to become the world’s best in the nearest future.
Coming to his life love, it’s quite difficult to tell if the animator is actually in a relationship with someone or not. Reason being that he has not openly confirmed dating any girl in the present or past. At the moment, he appears to be very comfortable with the way things are moving and not ready to comment about his love life with his fans. However, some sources reported that he previously dated fellow YouTuber K1tana but the reason and exact time they parted ways are not known to the public or media.
Born on October 22, 1994, in the United States of America, K1tana is a fast-rising YouTuber famed for her live gameplay contents and vlogs. She started uploading contents on YouTube in June 2013 and since then, she has never slowed down a bit.
Sometime in March 2018, Domics tweeted on his Twitter handle – @OmNomDomz – that he and “Claire are still together and closer than ever…”. This led to many people believing that he’s been in a relationship with a lady called Claire. Since then, however, the animator hasn’t really commented about his love life and how it has been fairing.
Domics belongs to the pack of internet celebrities that stands a few inches above 5 feet. Although he has a larger-than-life personality, his height of 5 feet 3 inches (1.60 m) hasn’t been a source of concern to him neither does it affect his career.
