Part of the Paint-a-thon on Saturday was streaming the event via Twitch. I have never done anything like that before. Mostly because I hate the sound of my own voice and always feel I come across as a moron. It was a lot more fun than I thought it would be and it got me thinking, ‘maybe I should make a channel of my own.’
So I did.
I have used a single camera today to film and stream my first painting session via Twitch. It was a lot of fun and I got a lot done as well. I managed to clean Sevatar in preparation for assembly. I also cleaned a Warp Smith too. I have base coated a Master of Possession as well. Have a WIP:
The stream went well and some available friends dropped in to say hello and chat while I painted away.
There are certainly areas for improvement:
1 – Move the camera so people can see what I am painting clearly.
2 – Ensure both cameras are working properly.
3 – Create a layout to show who I am while I am working on things, maybe include contact details.
4 – Remember to keep talking while concentrating on painting.
5 – Experiment with different times for the stream, as there are people all around the world who might be interested in what I am doing.
There are bound to be more things that will change as I work though, however I enjoyed the first stream and I shall certainly do more.
