I keep missing your drawing streams! Next time I gotta get in on one. :T How do you do a traditional drawing stream?

Don't worry, I'll give you the link once I start the next one!  
I do it through google hangouts, with my webcam pointing at my sketchbook. I can exactly screen share an actual piece of paper. It would be cool though.
You can see the whole process of a drawing taking place right there, and you can also have conversations with me audibly! Also you'll get to me some of my friends who come by just about every time I hold a stream. It should be fun!

Awesome! I can't promise the timing will work out for me, but I'll try my best! :D

That's so cool you can actually hear them - does anyone actually talk, or does everybody type? Do you see anybody, or do they only see you? I have no idea how any of this stuff works!

And I have another commission idea thing, but I'll wait till your list is cleared out a bit more. :)

Oh crud, I forgot to share the link the last time I streamed. But I'll be sure to do it now! For I am streaming.......right now. 
Here's the link!-------->hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_…

Yes, people can actually talk, some type in the chat box as well, but I personally prefer people to talk so I wouldn't have stop my work to look at the chat box every few minutes. So basically I would be hearing your voice for the first time if you do decide to use the audio. 

With hangouts, anyone can share their screen and also use the webcam to see one another's faces. It's all their choice if they want to. You can click on anyone's avatar to make what they themselves are presenting in full screen so you can see it easily.  

Oh cool! What's your idea? I'll still put you on the list.

Haha, I totally sound like a manchild. And sorry I barely said anything! I didn't want to interrupt, so I worked on my own art and listened to everybody else talk. :T

Do you use your computer webcam to stream your traditional drawings? I think it'd be fun if I could figure out how to have mine going at the same time. I ended up finishing coloring another watercolor picture during the time I was there. 

Since you use a camera and not a scanner, how do you get decent lighting to take pictures at night? Whenever I finish a picture in the evening (like today), I always have to wait till the morning to take a picture and upload. 
It was fun to hear everybody, even though I don't know anybody! :lol:

Is there any chance you could do my commission on smaller paper, since I'm afraid of running out of room with all those prints? :XD:

You didn't sound like a man or a child. 
That's what people usually do during my streams. 

I use the built-in webcam in the frame of my laptop screen to stream my drawings. 
I'm guessing the arts you were working on are the ones that I already Favorited? They came out wonderful!

I use normal lamps to light my artwork, I can't wait for sunlight to arrive. Then I bring it to my editor system and enhance the brightness contrast and gamma from there so the colors look nice and bright and bold. 

All I have is an 11 X 14 inch sketch book. I'm pretty sure you'll have space.

would be nice to see Obi giving a nice big trunk kiss to the viewer by pressing his nostrils up to the canvas as if it were glass :D

How long will your commissions be open?^^ I'd love to commission you, though I don't have the funds at the moment ;w;

I think they'll be open for a while, or until I can get my job back. I can keep your idea on hold for now, Ember! Until you do have the funds. What is your idea?

You're welcome, Ember! 
Sounds like a cute idea! I'll keep your idea in a special "On Hold" list just below the main commission list until you tell me when it's okay to start.
Thank you so much for helping me out!
