if you're a requester, use your deviantart-name as name in the chat.
The stream will start at about 4pm GMT +1, when I will hpefully have returned from the project I have to attend. You've time till then to throw in your requests!
don't be shy, just join into the fun!
most important update for now (not really XD ) my cintique companion arrived and gosh i love it *3* I still need to get used to windows 8 but that's a minor thing. I got SAI and PS CS6 installed as well as all necessities I need and already scribbled a bit. The tablet has a very sleek design, it's not too heavy and not too loud and reacts properly to pen and touch and doesn't mix these up. Drawing on the screen is a tad different than the usual method but it works the same - and it is nicely warm which is good cause my hands get cold so easily when drawing. I'm still fighting a bit to get the few keys I have to set correctly so I don't need to rely on the menue for basics like zoom or ctrl+z but I'll work this out soon enough. The thing I noticed mostly is that the cintique is not as forgiving as my intuos, my lines are not that straight like they're used to but that's a matter of practise and getting accostomed to the different ways of drawing. And having your arm in the way of the image is not as disturbing as I expected. All in all I need a bit time to get used to this buddy but I like it so far. A lot. And not only because I can lay comfortably in my bed while drawing ;3
I won't abandon my intuos of course, it will still be used rather often and most likely when I stream. But having the companion for all the times when I am not able to work at my desk or don't want to is great
so now back to real business - there is still time to get your requests in for the stream this weekend. Signs go for saturday, possibly starting at 3 or 4 pm GMT+1. So if you want free artwork, check the rules and jump in on the fun!
christmas is the time of giving, so I'll give as well since I won't manage to send cards this year. I'll hold a request stream this weekend - either 20th or 21st, depending on how things go with a project I attend on saturday.
If you want to get a chance of a free artwork as well, follow these rules and you're in on the game:
you have to be a watcher of mine to be part of this
you have to be present in the stream with your DA name
you have to provide sufficient references for ALL
characters of your request (even if it is TF Optimus, give me damn references)
there is no promise I'll choose your request and I won't tell beforehand whom I choose, these decisions are made during the stream
I'll draw what interests me or hits my muse - if you offer your characters you allow me to draw them in this stream as I please
there are no limitations in content or fandom (but be aware that I will not draw complicated or uber colored things simply because it takes too much time)
you can suggest as many ideas as you like
you can suggest other people's characters as well, but if you do so, make sure there is permission to draw them
comment on this journal with your suggestion
this is all I can think of now - precise time of the stream will be announced later on.
thanks and stay awesome, people - the bunny loves you
