Hi. You know what time it is? Well, not now. But in an hour. Yayyy, drawing stream. What will I draw? I dunno. And my PC will probably crash. But... Ya'know. The show must go on. twitch.tv/sandyfortune

So, I've been doing it. I've been streaming over at twitch.tv/sandyfortune. If you want to catch the regular reminders, make sure you follow my status updates here, because I'll post a 1 hour warming for a drawing stream. Or you can follow twitter.com/mlpsandy for more frequent reminders.

I've been streaming fairly regularly so far. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8pm to 11pm (EST/EDT). So far, I've been gaming on Tuesday and drawing on Thursday. But I'm gonna switch it up. My streaming goal was not to play games (as fun as that is), it's to draw. Streaming art will keep me in the habit of drawing regularly, give me communication practice, and give me everything I want to get out of streaming.

But I'm going to adapt my current schedule. I'm going to try a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule, from 8pm to 10pm. With any ol' random pick up stream when I feel like it, but those will be the regular events. Short and sweet, but more often. (And still 2 hours more than two 3 hour streams.) The days are a bit odd, but that's because Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings are usually full.

Anyway. That's it for now!

Second time writing this on my phone because I forgot to post this last night from my PC, and the DA app is horrible to the point I can’t see what I’m typing. Ahem. Anyway...

I’ve started streaming! I’m going to try streaming art tonight! I’m over at twitch.tv/sandyfortune right now, aiming for Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 to 11pm (EST/EDT). I’ve been playing Portal 2 to get the bugs worked out, but now I’m ready to start poking at art again. (Which should be “fun” since I haven’t done any drawing in a while.)

I decided against Picarto for now. I’m more familiar with Twitch as a whole, and would like to get established there since there’s a lot of options. I’d like to primarily do art, with some story-driven games sometimes. I don’t know if I want to split that between two sites right now. I guess I’ll see how Twitch Creative section works out. Maybe I’ll fall back to Picarto if I end up knowing more people there, but... Twitch is Twitch.

Anyway, I’ll probably be trying to draw stream splash screens and such this time. Also remembering how to use Photoshop. And a tablet. So... We’ll see how it goes.

Hi. Hello? Is this thing on? *chews on microphone and makes feedback*

So, uh... As you no doubt have noticed, nothing came from the Picarto vs Twitch thing. That was almost a whole year ago. Time flies when you're having fun unemployed, running out of savings, and don't know what to do with yourself. Long story short, I got another programming job, moved to the city, and now...

I have fiber Internet. The good stuff. 1000/1000. I have absolutely no excuse for not streaming. I still don't have a Cintiq like I've wanted, but my Surface is already showing its age. It can't run Photoshop CC and stream, so I'm going to have to work on my Intuos on my desktop again. I haven't done art in about a year, either, so I'm definitely going to be rusty.

So far the plan is to start streaming a couple days a week and see how it goes. Maybe I'll draw. Maybe I'll play a game. I don't know yet. What I know is Internet speeds like this are rare. I don't want to sound goofy, but this is a blessing I can't waste. I need to make use of it. I don't know what I'm supposed to stream, but I have to do something.

Soon.
