So I’ve been working on my Stream. I want this Streaming thing to work, I have to ask less help and go with what I want. a few things to go over so I hope you’re ready for a bit of a long read. I will use headers for each part of this update so you know what I’m up to and talk about.
Types of Streams
so let’s get the big one out of the way, what will I be Streaming? well, I have three things I love to do. Playing Video Games, Drawing and Character making. so far I’ve done the Video game and Drawing but not Character making. there was a Stream where I drew Samlee one of my characters but she was already made. I will keep the Video game Stream as the main type of Stream but every other week from now on I will do an Art Stream and once a month I will do a Character making Steam. I will talk about what will be in a Character stream in a bit but right now we’ll go over the Types of Streams in more details.
right so for the main Stream type. I saw that I had way too many types of Streams so I have three which would make things easier on myself and you guys.
- Cookie Streams: this one isn’t really my own idea. this was a Streamer/YouTuber I love’s idea. his name is Proton Jon and he came up with the idea. then another called Tom Fawkes had his own. but they call it a Fortune Cookie Stream where I call mine a Lucky Cookie Stream, and where they pick up to 8 games and let the viewers vote on the game they want. I pick one game and unless I really don’t feel like playing the game we play it for an hour. this will stay the same when we get more people watching I will pick two cookies and have the chat pick but right now only one.
- Birthday Streams: this was I think I came up with. I haven’t seen anyone do this before. I will do Birthday Streams for my Mods and Friends who watch my Stream. on their birthday Stream, they take control and tell me what they want me to play on their Stream and for how long. we have done this for a few Mods and Friends and it seems to do well. this is a way for me to show I care about my friends and Mods and my way of saying thank you for taking time out of your weekend to watch me make a fool of myself live.
- One Game Streams: the name says it, we play one game for 4 hours. this is also the time where I pick the game not letting the lucky Cookie pick one for me. before I never got to pick the games I wanted to play so now I will. you never know, you may find something cool about the game I pick.
so the Art Streams will mostly be me using Photoshop drawing artwork of video games, Anime, my already made Characters, redeemed artwork, Commissions and college Art homework. I do want to do Crossovers of my favourite characters. the College homework will be life like drawing for my art class and won’t be in Photoshop but in my A3 sketchbook so will be using the webcam. Art Streams will on once every other week.
Character Making Streams
this is something I want to do this as a job and I also wanted to do this kind of Stream since I found out that’s what I wanted to do. right now I’ll do one once a month but it may change. what may happen in this Stream is that we look around DeviantART and google for ideas or we build on an idea I already have. we then go into my OneNote and write down all the ideas and at the same time sketch out the character in Photoshop or on paper. this Stream may be a long or short it depends on how we’re doing with the character. the chat can help out with ideas and tips and they can call out if the character is too much like another character. I’m hoping to start this month as I do have two characters that can be doing more work on them.
when will I Stream
the Weekend will always happen and 10 PM will be the latest I’ll go. on UK Holidays I will Stream more and will Tweet on twitter and inform Discord when I’m going to be live and give them a 30 mins head’s up. so I could Stream up to 6 days a week if I feel like it but keep in mind when I have college I will only do Weekends, holidays you’ll get more of me. and the Summer will be the best for me and you guys.
Mascot of the Twitch
and lastly for now are the Mascots of my Twitch. I was planning to use my character for that but most people won’t know who they are so I thought I could use other characters as the Mascot. I have seen other Twitch users and YouTube use Characters like Mario, Pokemon, Master chief etc as Mascots. I have also seen people using Characters that they relate too to help others understand who they are and get to know them better. so I’m going to do that, if I ever get paid for Streaming I will use my own characters. so right now I have a character I will be using and I’ll give you a bit about how I am like them. the character is…
Sonic the hedgehog: no surprise here. but he isn’t just here because I love him to bits. in every personality quiz, I’m 80% Sonic (20% is Amy Rose). Sonic is kind, cheerful, loves the outdoors and puts others before himself. he wants to help everyone and wants people to smile and give them hope. I want to make someone’s day. I want to give someone who is having a bad day a hug and tell them it’s going to be okay. yes, I can get cocky when playing my games, I go too fast through a game. but it’s all for to make someone smile.
so this is what I’m up too. hopefully, this goes well and if you made it this far, thank you for reading all of this. if you have any Questions just let me know. that’s all for now, see you later! ♥
