So in the last month I have gotten several requests for behind the scenes and tutorials in regard to how I mod Stardew Valley the RPG and I started to make those tutorials. Feel free to leave me questions or suggestions. I love hearing from you.
Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!
We’ve had a good year and reached most of the milestones we set for our selves so we want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans for all your support!
And since it’s a new year I thought this would be a great time to share this with you. Some of you have already seen similar guides before, others have not.
So just a reminder of how the industry works and why supporting your favorite indie artists is so important. They usually don’t have safety nets and do this out of passion. And at the end of this year I have seen many artists give up or get burned out and I must say the thought of closing up shop has passed my mind too, but I have people around me who still support me and so, I am still here. ^_^
So for those that don’t know these things, please have this list in mind next time you see your favorite artist post your beloved content.
Itch also has a donate button if you want to support my work. Any help is much appreciated. For more more substantial donations you can use Patreon to also claim rewards like merchandise and custom art.
This month we held our second #QuickDrawCollab live stream event and we will be doing another at the end of June. If you don’t know what the event is you can read here: QDC explained.
You can join our Facebook group: Hisame Artwork Event Center for schedule and application. Anyone can join as streaming artists long as they have internet and can draw. If you just want to be a spectator here is the live stream link, we will be taking requests from the audience like last times.
We also did our first #HisameBookWeek in our Facebook group. It was a week in which we did:
– Self publishing tips & tricks
– Writing and drawing tutorials
– Publisher reviews
– Promos for indies
– Fan recommendations
This time around we featured Britney Mizumi‘s comic and more comics will be featured in next events. Anyone can submit, just keep it family friendly and mark it as NSFW if it is adult.
Click on the image to go to her comic.
And last but not least a bit of bragging on my part. I got featured in the LifeSayso emagazine, which I encourage you to go check it out.
It’s been a busy time for me, I haven’t had the time to do a vlog like I promised, sorry. Still I know some of you wanted to keep in touch and since we all have our lives, it’s difficult. Kids, health problems, family problems, miscellaneous problems. In the end I wanted to thank all you you who have helped me and continue to help me. I know some of you can’t anymore, hope you get well soon and see better days. Hugz!
For those that want to stay in the loop but have only 3min to read things here is the summary:
And last but not least I’ve opened a shop on Itch.io and uploaded some freebies there. I will continue to upload some more stuff there as well as the games when they are done. I think it’s easier to find my stuff there than on Patreon. Let me know which format you prefer. I prefer using Patreon because it’s easier for me to keep track and give you your rewards when donating. You can donate to me on Itch just like on Twitch.
Hi! For those of you that don’t know what a #QuickDrawCollab is, here is the summary of it:
It’s an event where a couple of artists get together to quickly draw what the audience asks them. It’s the illustrator’s version of improvised theater, and it can be quite fun if you knows the artists and want your fan-fiction brought to life. It’s a great way to get to know your favorite artists and meet new ones.
I’ve set up a Facebook group, Hisame Artwork Event Center, where we will organize the details for the event. Such as:
– artist streaming
– equipment and streaming test
– links and presentation for participating artists (optional)
So please vote and register there. Everything is free, no financial rewards. It’s just friends getting together and having fun like old times. Most of us met on Tsu and used to hold events like this.
I really like how the notification system works on YouTube. The way the video recommendation system works is in the favor of the creator much more than it is on Facebook, where I’m constantly reminded I have to give them money or no one will see my posts. At least Twitteris more discreet about this. I can follow my favorite content creators much better on YouTube than on other platforms.
And I’ve had many fans complain about how they can’t keep in touch with me on Facebook, Rabadaba, Instagram etc. , because so many platforms are really bad at maintain relationships between people. So I’ve decided to finally do a 5 to 10 minute vlog series to keep people up to date with my events, giveaways and project progress.
Hope you like the format, let me know if have are suggestions for improvement. (^_~)
I stream live every Tuesday and Thursday so I invite you to come see and chat (^_^)
Hi everyone! I’m playing games on #Rabadaba, if you’re not on RABADABA yet, you can join for free anytime. It’s a social media platform like Instagram and Twitter where you get payed for your activity and content. 🎨 🎮 🎤 🎂 📸 📹 🖌 🖍 📝
The event consists of a fanart mini contest. All entries get a reward and what is left will be given to the winners at the end of the event on January first 2017! What is awesome about Rabadaba is that we have have our own currency, the ***Rab*** who can be cashed out as real money or most often people use it for games or art requests.
Also #ThankYou to all my Rabadaba followers for all the donations, so far I saved 82k Rabs and I’m giving it all away!!! So you will get 1k Rabs for each fanart you make, of my characters and be sure to use the hashtag #HisameFanart so I can find it easily.
I will select 3 winners: 1 for Hisame world lore knowledge, 1 for popular vote and 1 personal pick! I will announce the winners starting January, I’ve pushed the date a bit because many people are busy these days but still want to take place in the event 😀
You can read their stories on Tapastic for inspiration. You can do illustrations, cosplay, crossover, inside jokes, there is no limit! Just keep it decent because the stories are for kids after all.
Hugz and I look forward to seeing all of your awesome drawings! If we get a lot of cool drawings I may even make a gallery! \(^o^)/
Hi friends! As you may remember from last week Teepublic sponsored my my Black Friday merchandise giveaway. Thank you all for participating, hope you enjoyed it, more giveaway are coming next year so keep your eyes peeled if you want to participate again.
As a European I can definitely relate to the sucky feeling of not being eligible for a giveaway from the USA, but I will try to make international giveaways and if have good sales the coming year that will definitely make things easier, so fingers crossed all goes well!
Jacklyn was kind enough to send us a picture of the shirt she got, and if you’re curious to see the prizes and winners of previous giveaways use my hashtag #HisameOCL on social media to find the posts and pictures.
And thank you again Teepublic for sponsoring my event!
As always I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions or suggestions on how I can improve the giveaway events feel free to write in the comment section bellow.
