    Advice while streaming

    I thought it might be a good idea to stream my daily exercices. Anyone that feels like a teacher can have a look and give pointers. Others of similar beginner levels can get ideas for exercices, ask question about how I do somethin etc. etc.

    The url: www.livestream.com/kweckduck

    I'll post something in this thread everytime I'm streaming. (Normally between 8pm and midnight GMT+2)


    So that being said I'll start my first session and see who shows up.

    May I offer some advice before you start streaming? Don't overthink it and make it so complicated. Just focus on drawing...don't worry about getting advice and tips EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. That will just be a major distraction and create nothing but confusion. It doesn't take a village to make a drawing.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    I'm not sure this is going to be very helpful for you.. after all, you are expecting people with enough expertise to come and watch, and give you advice- ergo teach you- it should be offered the other way round.
    It took you 10 minutes to draw the outlines of a leg, constantly erasing lines etc. etc.. Not that I'd be any better than that, but I found it really boring to watch- sorry if that sounds harsh.

    If you can't knuckle down and focus all your attention to the task at hand, learning to draw, you aren't going to get very far as an artist.

    It's a feeling born from experience. Drawing is not a group activity.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Alrighty, before starting today's exercices there is something I'd like to point out:

    Even though the title of this thread says "advice while streaming" I don't expect anyone to give me any freebies or invest any time in me. If you are nevertheless willing to do that then you have my sincerest thanks and I extend my rare bro-fist to you.
    Anyone else that is just interested in seeing my daily exercices is free to join as well. For the moment these are indeed pretty dull anatomy exercices, with some cartoonish stuff mixed in at the end normally. I do hope to speed up over time, but considering that they are studies, I think it best not to rush them.

    So with that said, I'm live for the following hour and a half.

    I've caught a few live streaming art drawing thingies and most of them are boring unless you're Noah. He has a great advantage in that he has other people drawing, painting and having a joke with - makes it a lot more fun to watch. You don't have sound and it's like watching wall paint dry.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    I wonder if there are people who are learning to play an instrument who livestream their practices? And who in the world the audience would be for that?

    Thanks for the sell.

    That's what I want to spend my time on.

    A lot of people have ridden a bicycle and fell or used training wheels. Other than the "America's Funniest Home Videos" clip with funny music and sound effects do people want to really watch that. The people interested in your progress will probably be parents who understand what you want to do or your peers or an instructor you're paying for.

    Otherwise read Art & Fear to understand how much your progress means to others, even if they went through it themselves.

    And well, the fact that I will have to apparently log in to comment doesn't help either. I tried to pop a comment earlier but I don't think I'll make an account just for that, and I'd say it turns people off from helping too. I mean it's not your fault that it requires a log-in, but just another reason why you might not get too much help from that.

    What can I say, all your doubts and comments are justified.
    But still I persist.

    I'm up again for those interested.

    I think though this really isn't an art discussion thread. I'm going to close it. If you want to stream, put a notice in your sketchbook.
