First off, Thank you all SO much for being super supportive and just amazing! I've gotten so many new followers, and even some new patrons over on Patreon, which is super inspiring and just....it makes me feel really great about the art I'm doing!
Progress on the artbook is still coming along -- I recently needed to pick up a slew of copic refills, because a lot of the colors I use the most were running low. I've gotten most of the refills I needed, as well as some new inking pens - Staedtler triplus fineliners! I'm super excited about these liners, the quality seems really great -- though I still love my Stabilo liners! I'll end up using them together, most likely.
The past week or two I've been updating my twitch page, the bot, chat commands for twitch, and even the website here with things. You can now view the twitch stream and chat from the home page! It's a small viewing, but it's one way that you'll know for sure I'm online, if you've not seen my twitch before and visit the site. Aside from my tweeting out the stream and posting it via instagram and such, this is one good way to know when I'm streaming!
There's a new overlay over on twitch, as well as many, many informative panels below the stream (if you're on mobile, I believe if you swipe to the left you'll be able to see the panels). Each panel title is a command in chat as well, which will pull up the same sort of information whenever it's needed!
I posted screenshots of the various Better Twitch TV emotes that you can use in my chat room -- but you have to have animated emotes turned on in your settings for them to work!
There's also a slight change in the schedule -- Every Monday is now PokéMonday! The second Monday of each month is PokéMonday with NoelleMBrooks -- and it runs from 10pm EST until 4AM EST. Every other Monday during the month, PokéMonday will be with PrendorianCrab from 6pm EST until 12am EST! So be sure to stop by if you're interested in Pokémon doodles! We have kadgar links set up so that if you're on a laptop or desktop computer you can view both streams and chats at the same time -- unfortunately this does not work on mobile, so you'll have to choose one or the other of the streams.
You may or may not have noticed the other slight change on the front page of the site -- the logos for the three teams that I am a member of on Twitch are present now near the footer of the page! Each one links to either a group page, or a website dealing with that team -- if you're a fan of my work, or my game nights - definitely check out RizeUpGaming, Design Dolls, and Creators on Twitch to find other great gamers and artists who are just as amazing (moreso, even!).
Now onto some interesting things!
I decided that since the artbook is a little slow going with sketching out, then drawing out, then transferring, coloring, inking, and detailing of each lovely monster girl that I would do the sketching and linework for all of the girls first. What this means is that there will be a monster girl coloring book before the artbook is released! This is one way I hope to raise some more funds so that I can provide pre-order perks for the artbook such as stickers, buttons, and posters! When the coloring book is complete, it will go up for sale on both Amazon, and on my personal shopfront. Anyone interested in a signed copy with a little doodle in it can shoot me an e-mail and I will add you to the first order batch list and then notify you when the books are ready to ship and then when they've been shipped!
That's just about everything for right now! I'll keep you all posted when it gets closer to the coloring book being finished! I'm going to try to get the linework done for the coloring book done before the final images for the artbook, so future streams may simply be sketching and inking streams!
Catch you later!
