A Minor Readjustment

So I realized I have to adjust my gaming stream schedule a tiny bit: instead of streaming games at 10am NZT Saturday, I’ll be streaming 2 hours later at 12pm NZT. Which is pretty much right now as soon as I post this. (Sorry, Europe!) Check here to see my streaming schedule in your local timezone.

Last week we finished Layers of Fear (a very trippy scream fest), and because that wasn’t enough today we’ll be playing the DLC called Inheritance. I don’t know too much about it other than you play from the point of view of a child (SEEMS LIKE I’M ALREADY PLAYING THAT GAME AMIRITE HA HA).

Apparently it doesn’t take too long to finish, so after that we’ll be jumping into some Overwatch and I’ll finally get to open some loot boxes! I stopped opening them a while back when I realized it’d be better to save them for the stream, and now that day is finally here! SEXY WITCH MERCY HERE I COME.

See you on Twitch!

Scream Stream

Now that the drawing stream is running smoothly with the new overlay, it’s time to start GAMING again!

game_tomorrow

Join me on Twitch tomorrow as we return to the nightmare and play the new demo of the long awaited sequel: Outlast 2 (Outlast II?). The first Outlast was one of the best games I streamed last year, so I’m very excited terrified to see what this little demo has waiting for me.

If my little heart is still beating after that I’ll jump straight into another horror game (hey it’s October!) called Layers of Fear. I don’t know much about it other than it’s about an artist who goes insane. MAY AS WELL JUST BE MY COMIC STREAM AMIRITE HA HA.

I’ve also updated my schedule to be based on New Zealand time (for I am in New Zealand). This saves me a ton of headaches trying to figure out daylight savings for everyone, so now you’re on MY time. Clicking the image below will take you to my new Speq calendar which will tell you when I’m streaming in YOUR time zone!

See you tomorrow!

SHOWTIME

backstage_post

After nearly a year of on-again off-again work, I’m finally ready to present the new (and totally not over-hyped) stream overlay! It will be making its debut with today’s (tomorrow’s? (how 2 timezone)) stream where we’ll draw the new comic. The specific time is mentioned below!

showtime_post

Join us on the Loading Artist Twitch channel later today! 3pm PDT / 6pm EDT / 10pm UTC Wednesdays (or 10am Thursday in New Zealand (wow I hate time zones (oh god daylight savings is kicking in later what does that mean oh god))).

Also, I have a TON of sketchbook doodles relating to this stream overlay, and I’ll be dumping them all over my patrons along with next month’s rewards — just in case you’re interested!

To Garfield

I can’t believe I missed GF’s birthday! Garfield turned 37 38 on June 19th (I can’t math).
GarField not GirlFriend, get it?! Ha ha ha ha ha I’m so alone.

There were only 3 comics in my life when I was growing up: The Far Side, Calvin & Hobbes, and most of all: Garfield. I had way more Garfield things in my life than anything else (probably because Garfield is such a merchandise slut).

I loved Garfield, and I would read the comics every day. So much so that it made me want to become a cartoonist. Look, I even attempted a fan-made Garfield comic:

garfield_02_large

Attempted.

FUN FACT: Did you know there has been a Garfield comic every day since 1978? And Jim Davis is still making them, and has a whole YEAR’S worth of comics stockpiled? For comparison’s sake, my comic buffer right now is 0.

Hey also I’ll be including the crazy high-res version of this wallpaper (& behind the scenes sketches + animated progression GIF) as part of this month’s Patreon rewards! So if you like the sound of that, or just want to support Loading Artist, consider becoming a patron!

Also also, I’ll be streaming myself drawing the next comic on Twitch in about 8 hours! Goodnight!
