I'm sure most people who still follow me here may have noticed - I haven't been super active here as of late.
This is because my focus has been elsewhere. I still do art - mainly fractal work - but it's posted in other places now, for the most part. Primarily on Redbubble (www.redbubble.com/people/snipe…
) and Society6 (society6.com/venomgraphics
However, my primary focus hasn't really been my art. I've been focusing a bit more on ReviewHaven and my Twitch (www.twitch.tv/faoohxsniperfox/…
) and Youtube (www.youtube.com/user/GameRevie…
) channels. Been working on not only trying to establish a schedule (YT videos on certain days [Sunday Slugfest, Mech Monday, etc, Twitch streams every Monday, Wednesday & Friday] but also trying to tie a brand together for it. Almost done with that aspect of it - managed to finally create a video intro that I'm happy with, a logo that I like and an overall aesthetic that I'm happy with - just need to work on getting it all adapted to everything - like my Twitch profile.
For those interested, the current YouTube schedule is as follows -
The channel has reached nearly 150 subscribers so far, so it's doing alright (I've had the channel for a while, but only really started focusing on it in 2014 or so). Could be doing way better, though. That said, I'm actually enjoying my time - I like working with Premiere and After Effects, and I like knowing that other people are enjoying my playthroughs. It's even given me a reason to go back and play games that I either haven't played in a while (Like Final Fantasy 13
), or beat games that I've never played/never finished (Like Metal Gear
& Metal Gear 2
, back when I played through each canon Metal Gear game leading up to the release of MGSV
Twitch, on the other hand, doesn't really have a schedule - outside of me streaming every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 1PM Eastern. I don't play specific games on specific days, or have themes for specific streams or anything like that. I generally just play a game or two that I feel like playing at the time - they aren't even always games I plan to do full LPs of.
One thing to note about my playthroughs - and my streams - I'm not one for commentary. I don't personally do it. Partly because I don't really have the means to [My room is a loft, no walls, no real privacy and no way to keep external noise out. Also, no real mic, other than the one attached to my Turtle Beach headset.], but mostly because I don't really want to. I do try to interact with the Twitch chat as best I can, though. Kinda difficult to play and type at the same time, though. I guess that'd make me a Longplayer? I don't really know the terminology
Aaaanyway, that's where my focus has been as of late, and where it's likely to be for the foreseeable future. I'll still make art and what-not, but it'll likely be posted on Society6 & Redbubble, rather than here, unless I decide to post something over on my
