A couple weeks ago I reached the status of Affiliate on Twitch. To say thank you I drew your requests! Here's the replay of that stream! Enjoy

Tomorrow will be my next stream. 8:45pm eastern time.  Normally it's a tutorial, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do.  I have a lot of commissions to get through, so I might just make it a work day.  Regardless of what I do, I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Gear and Spider Colors by TheGreenCount

Today's fan art of the week comes to us from :iconthegreencount: with this bad ass version of Gear piloting a spiderbot. Please go make sure you check out his page and other awesome artwork!

I feature fan art every weekend, when I have some art to feature! So if you'd like to submit some art follow these steps:
  1. Make the art.
  2. Post it to DA. Make sure you state that it's one of my characters from Shadows of Oblivion (shadowsofoblivion.com) and tag me so I'll be notified! (You might want to send me a note too. Sometimes DA doesn't tell me that I've been mentioned.) 
  3. I'll then feature your art! Easy as that. 
If you're interested in finding out more about Shadows of Oblivion you can:

Thanks for the fan art, and thank you for your support!

4 hours is a long time to dedicate to watching someone draw. So I've boiled it down to just under 30 minutes.  So enjoy the coloring of some commissions. I hope you it!

Next stream is tomorrow at 12:30pm eastern time.  I haven't really planned it out a whole bunch, but it's probably just going to be more commission work. I still have 8 commissions to complete plus 3 patron commissions. So I got a lot to do! Hopefully I'll see you tomorrow! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Who has time to watch a two and a half hour stream? I mean some people do. the people who watch me live. But a lot of people don't!  That's why I make the fast forward videos. Watch 2 hours in 20 minutes.  Enjoy.

My next stream will be in about 90 minutes. It's just going to be punk music and inking. I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Last week on the twitch livestream we talked about the basics of facial expressions.  Here's the replay incase you missed it!

Tonight on the stream we're going to talk about shading. It's a term everyone uses, but I don't think most people know what it really means. So join me at 8:45pm eastern time and we'll talk about it. twitch.tv/thegreatshono

A couple weeks ago I didn't do a Tutorial Tuesday because I needed to get this sketch done for my patrons. So watch me try to beat a deadline live!
My next stream is tomorrow (Tuesday) at 8:45pm eastern time. It'll be Tutorial Tuesday. And I think the tutorial is going to be on getting value out of your drawing. I don't mean how to make money with your drawing. I mean shading, (basically.) I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Also if you don't know who the Witch of Bibricate is. She's the villain of Shadows of Oblivion #3. You can get yourself a copy of that book physically or on comixology.

You helped me become a Twitch Affiliate and I want to thank you!  So tomorrow during my livestream i'm going to be drawing your requests live!
The stream is going to begin at 2pm eastern time and go for at least 2 hours.  I never quite know how long I'll stream for, anything can happen live.
If you don't know by now, my twitch channel is twitch.tv/thegreatshono

As far as the requests go. here are the rules for that:

1. Request a character in the chat.

2. Established comic book, video game, anime, and manga characters only. Something that's quick to google. (no OCs, sorry.)

3. Priority goes to cheered characters in the chat. (if you don't know how to cheer on twitch, heres where you can get an explanation and bits www.twitch.tv/bits)

4. I make no promise that I'll get to your character. Even if you cheered for them. (but I'm going to do my absolute positive best to get to everyone.)

5. I'm going to limit my sketches to head sketches and only draw for ten minutes each to maximize the sketches I can draw.

6. These are not commissions. This is not a paid service. You will not receive the sketches I draw. The drawings I make are for your personal enjoyment during the stream and are not for commercial or promotional use.

I think that covers everything.  Let me know if I forgot anything or if you have any questions.

I look forward to seeing you guys tomorrow!  And thank you for your support!

Don't have time for a 4 hour stream? Sure! We all do! Watch me finish painting Eva in just 25 minutes.   Much more time efficient

My next stream is going to be tomorrow at 2pm eastern time.  It's going to be my "Thank You" stream for helping me become a Twitch Affiliate. I'll be taking your requests!  I'll be posting a journal shortly with the info about that.  In the mean time follow and/or subscribe to my twitch channel to make sure you don't miss it! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Who has time to watch such long streams? I mean, some of you do. But I often don't. That's why I do the fast forward videos. So you can watch the stream in under 20 minutes. Enjoy!

My next stream is going to be in about 30 minutes! Keep an eye out for my status update letting you know when I start! Or just follow me so you get notification! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Tonight's topic is basic facial expressions. And no we're not talking emojis.  We're talking the mechanics to make believable facial expressions.
If that interests you join me on twitch at 8:45pm eastern time. It'll be fun and educational! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

I'll also be debuting the "Stream Boss" mini game.  I think it's a fun way to interact with the stream. But maybe I'll be proven wrong. I'll be interested to see how you guys feel about it. 

Regardless! I'll see you tonight!

A couple weeks ago I spent a livestream inking and coloring a commission.  It's not up on my twitch channel anymore, but you can watch it on my youtube channel!

Next stream is tomorrow at 8:45pm eastern time! We'll be doing a tutorial on facial expressions. We'll also have the debut of the "Defeat the Stream Boss" mini game.  It's something new I wanna try out and I think it'll be fun, but we'll see. Regardless I hope to see you there tomorrow! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Don't have 2 hours to watch my streams? I can't blame you, I don't have that kinda time either. So you can watch me draw Captain America under 20 minutes!

I've finally reached my goal of being a Twitch Affiliate! Now the next goal is Partner!  Meanwhile I'll do a celebratory stream next week to say thank you! Look out for more details on that soon and be sure to follow me on Twitch so that you're notified when I go live! twitch.tv/thegreatshono.

What do you mean you don't have 4 spare hours to watch my lifestreams? Good thing the Fast forward is here! Watch 4 hours of drawing in less than 30 minutes. So enjoy!

I'll be streaming today for a little while. starting around 2pm and going until about 6pm eastern time. (unless something comes up.) I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Last week we talked about body proportions for Tutorial Tuesday.  We also dip a little bit into muscles too. It was a fun time for all!

Tonights stream will start at 8:45pm eastern time. It should be a Tutorial Tuesday, but frankly I still need to finish a commission for Patrons. Continuing to be frank I haven't even started it yet. So If it's not done by stream time, guess what the stream is gonna be about? If I do finish on time I might just take tutorial requests? I dunno. Today's gonna be a weird day.

So if you're onboard with watching a stressed and disorganized Shono check out my twitch stream tonight! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

In honor of Avengers: Endgame. I drew Captain America on Saturday's stream!
My next stream is going to be tomorrow at 8:45pm.  Normally it's a Tutorial Tuesday (and it still might be.) But I still have a Patron Commission to finish, so my stream might be me finishing that commission before the deadline is up. Nothing like working down to the wire!

So if you wanna see me stress out live, be sure to check out my twitch page at twitch.tv/thegreatshono

And also thank you to everyone who started following me on Twitch. I've gone from needing 9 followers to just 2. It means a lot to me.  Once I reach 50 followers I can apply to become an affiliate. And if affiliate status is awarded, I'll reward you guys with a art request stream!

Thank you so much!

Did you miss my stream and you just don't have two and a half hours to catch up on it? Me neither. That's a big chunk out of your day! That's why I created the fast forward. Watch the whole stream in just 15 minutes! 

My next stream is going to be tomorrow around 12:30pm eastern time. I'll be drawing Avengers in honor of Endgame! So I hope to see you tomorrow afternoon! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

I was feeling very nostalgic last week and drew my character WarAngel as a 90's anime girl.
I'm actually going to be streaming later today. Around 2pm eastern time.  I'm not gonna have my mic or camera on. I just have a lot of commissions to get through. So I'm just going to put on some music and draw.  I'll still be in the chat though so I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono

Last week I critiqued your artwork. Everyone was good sports about it and I really hope it helped you all with improving your art!
Tonight at 8:45pm eastern time we're going to have another tutorial livestream. Tonight we're talking human body proportions. So follow me on twitch to get notifications when I go live, and I hope to see you there! twitch.tv/thegreatshono
