Feedback Request for Streams!

Permanent Linkby Scaylid00d on Sat Nov 26, 2016 7:53 am

Hello again :D A second blog entry for the day!

I've been doing my livestreams for a while now, and every time, it leaves me happy that so many of you enjoy the show I put on <3 To know that you have fun, and even learn something with me, means a whole lot!
It's in this spirit, that I want to hear how you think I could potentially optimize the experience, and perhaps make it more enjoyable? I've got some possibilities I want to run by you, so see what you think! \^3^/

1. Over the course of a stream, do you prefer watching instead of listening, or do you listen to the stream more than you watch it?
- This statistic could help form my decisions in terms of some of the ideas below :)

2. Should I use my mic to narrate certain things I do?
- The reason I've held back on this is because I'm somewhat self-conscious about my voice. It's not as melodious as I'd want it to be >//w//<; But this may help me respond to text chat faster and more accurately. If you're interested, I could also explain my thought-processes at a given time, when I'm deciding on something in a drawing.

3. Do you prefer I do as many drawings as possible in a single stream, or do you prefer I work intensely on one drawing for a whole stream, and go from constructions all the way to proper coloring? :3c
- This is an important point I want to bring up, elaborated on in the paragraph below!

My day job is 9 hours of constant interaction with people, either in person or over the phone, and being an introvert, lately it's been taking a lot out of me. When I get home, most days I'm so drained, I can't muster the energy to be meaningfully creative. Attempts at creativity leave my drawings too lack-luster, and I forget simple things when drawing, like basic proportions or technique.

In an effort to contain my lewd drawing activity to my weekends, which LUCKILY I usually have free, I'd like to propose two options for my streams:

- Messy sketches, so that I can squeeze in as many drawings for as many raffle winners as possible, in a single session.
- One clean drawing, for a single raffle winner each session.

We don't have to exclusively choose one over the other, I could always do messy sketches one weekend, then a clean drawing the next. It just depends on what you guys want <3
I'm a big fan of Sharue's works on Eka's Portal, and her way of doing sketches has inspired me for years.
Some great examples here:
This is the kind of sketching style I'll be aiming for if I'd do multiple sketches in a stream :3

An additional update for my Patrons! To keep things fairer for raffles in the future, a single Patron can only win one drawing in a month e//v//e
Some of you wonderful goobers are perhaps a bit TOO lucky, so even with multiple streams in a month, to keep it fair, you may only win once in that given month~ I'll be updating the Patreon description to mention this detail as well.

That's it from me for now! I'm really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic :D If you have something else in mind that could make a stream more fun, do share your thoughts!
My apologies for the wall of text, but it's all in an effort to provide a great experience for you, my voracious watchers! ^ - ^/

Hello Maxi/Scaylid00d ^^ Let me put down my personnal feedback about your streams ^^

1 : personnaly, I always do others things while whatching a stream (listening to other stuff, playings games while following the stream etc...)... But...

2 : If you do this it could be interesting, but don't forget that there's always a delay during the streams, so it can possibly be harder to follow our train of thought compared to the text ^^" But I think I would keep the audio of the stream activated more often =3

3 : ... I can't really choose one choice ^^" I love both ideas : really clean work or multiples ideas comming to life ? Hard to decided ^^" Another idea would be to take suggestions from all the watchers (similar to your first stream =3 ) to create a drawing combining lots of differents ideas ^^

As for the patreon win, I'm afraid I must agree, being myself one of those too lucky XD

Thank you very much again for your amazing art =3

I tend to keep streams muted while I work on my own stuff or game but if you did use a mic I think I would turn the sound on as hearing the thought process of artists as they work is really interesting to me.

Doing multiple sketches could definitely be worth trying, especially during freebie streams. For patreon streams I think alternating between one detailed pic and multiple sketches might be the way to go. If you do end up going this route, I recommend the detailed pic being at the beginning of the month so every patron has a chance at it then those who don't win it still have the chances at the sketches (as I do agree the one win per month is a good idea).

I'll probably only be able to drop in and out of the stream tomorrow but looking forward to what I get to see.
