Live streaming on Twitch: debriefing

Debriefing of the Livestream:

Hey, I'm updating this blog-post few hours after the live-streaming ended: thank you so much for watching the live video and for your advice, comments in the chat-room. You were more than 200 to watch it!

You missed it? 
No problem: you still have 14 days to watch the full streaming recorded again with all the chat-room on Twitch.
The video was also archived on Youtube here.

Here is what happened on it:
I had a time budget of 2h. Not a lot with managing the streaming itself. I decided to propose a creature design. So, I started the video asking in the chat-room for ideas of combination of animals for a design in the next episode of Pepper&Carrot: because I need an agressive creature in future episode 17. The audience came up with really original ideas: (A) a Ferret+Python , (B) a Badger+Spider, (C) Bear+Mantis, (D) an Elephant+Panda+Pufferfish. I took the first 40min with a bit of presentation plus a little time on developing quickly this ideas.
At the end: the concept (D) won the votes, but with a bit of (B) and (C). So I added a tail of badger, and the fur of the bear to the Elephant+Panda+Pufferfish.

After this step, I started to render the sketch, with a low time budget of 1h20. I made a minimal drawing pass with a pencil preset to solidify my volumes on the top of the sketch, then I started to paint the concept. Before the color, we decided to go with Red Panda colors. I tried to follow all the advices on the chat-room, but it was too fast to read them all. ( sorry Sixpairsoffeet ! I saw your questions and suggestions only at the end of the stream, same for many other).

After the end of the streaming, I took time to read all the comments in the chat-room and so I could fix all the little issues: I removed the Dune-worm-trunk to something a bit less weird, I added more spikes, I added teeth, added stripes on the trunk, shading on the horn and little bones on the floor.  And... here is the 'Phanda' !

Thanks again for watching it! 

Blog-post before the livestreaming :

I'll do a live video streaming on Twitch tomorrow, and exactly ten hours before the end of the Krita Kickstarter Campaign 'Let's Make text and vector art Awesome!'. A good way to celebrate together!

★ What is it?
It's a live video, I record my desktop screen while I'll create a painting from scratch. It will be fully commented with a microphone: I'll give you my tips to do an artwork with Krita. You'll also see my face recorded in the corner of the screen thanks to a webcam. I'll do a speedpainting with Krita and you can join to watch and interact with me using a chat on Twitch; I'll reply questions related to Krita, Painting, Art, Open-source and Pepper&Carrot. 
(Example of my past stream: test1 and test2 video recorded last week-end, for testing purpose ; video test1 had glitch and package-lost ; all was solved in video test 2.) 

★ Where and When ?

On the website ; Krita official channel:

Tuesday 7 June 2016,  start at 21h00 (UTC+2, Paris timezone) to 23h00

Thanks for the useful free countdown widget!

( Update: now the countdown shows the time since the livestream started )


I hope to see all of you around!

You can replay it during the next 14 days!
It was a very good event and experience. I couldn't read and interact with everyone unfortunately on the chat; it was too hard to read everything. I'm affraid I ignored user with important questions... I hope they'll understand.

Super le replay ! Je n'avais pas pu assister à l'intégralité du stream.

Très instructif de suivre pas à pas ta manière de peindre, sûr que ça m'a fait gagner de l'XP. :D

It was so much fun watching the new character develop and seeing your process. With all the chatting going on at the same time!
