#HisameNews from May \(^o^)/

So as the month of May comes to an end here are some of the awesome things we did so far and we have plenty more planned for June!

Hisame Artwork

I published my “How Ernest met Coraline” comic on Itch. You can download the .pdf from there. I’ve included some world lore and coloring pages for you.

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 linkwe 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.

Thanks for reading and take care!

Youtube notification | Friday is #HisameReview

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 Twitter is 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. (^_~)
Take care,
Hisame

Ok so this week I’m reviewing the new tipping feature from Tapastic and conclusion is:

And bellow you can see the tips GamerCat‘s creator is making in Tapastic, I love GamerCat so I’m super happy to be supporting Samantha Whitten (the creator). All tips are public  and you can’t tip yourself but you can tip others. The tipping feature is only available on the app version of Tapastic.

Hope I’ve answered your questions, but if you have more questions feel free to ask!

And thank you very much to all those who have tipped me, it is a great help to get these tips. Now I can finish all the projects I have faster and keep going with future projects as well.

Hugz,

Hisame

So I’ve started work on publishing my science themed calendar on Lulu.com, the print on demand book publishing company.

They have good prices from what I’ve seen so far, and occasionally offers free shipping. But they are a nightmare to work with if you are  a new publisher, like me. Support is non-existent and their help pages don’t work sometimes, you’ll get a 404 error. It’s a huge website and company and I think they are understaffed. I’ve gotten my orders mixed with someone else, but they fixed that in a very professional and automated way. You’ll only get no-reply mails to notify you of issues and updates, so not much human contact.

But when I’m done publishing, those of you who have expressed your desire to own a copy of my calendar, you will be able to have the calendar delivered at home at half the price I can make it with my printer and maybe even with free shipping if you make an account with with Lulu.

Watercolor Review
Stabilo: are awesome fine-point pens that can be blended  with water and they come in  diverse nuances if you purchase the bigger packs.
Staedler:  watercolor pencils are smooth and vibrant, bendable, they last a long time and come in numerous mate nuances. If you’re looking for metallic watercolor pencils then search for  Derwent pencils.
Canson: is a brand of great absorbent specially dedicated watercolor paper. It’s thicker than normal paper and you can still feel the fibers and the sheets come  in many sizes.

Q&A: What is Patreon?

Hi, and welcome to my page if you’re new and welcome back if you’re an old follower!

So people have been asking me what is Patreon?!

patreon-logo-new-750x400

Well the answer is :
“Patreon is a crowd-funding platform popular with YouTube content creators, musicians, and webcomic artists. It allows artists to obtain funding from their fans or patrons, on a recurring basis, or per work of art.” – Wikipedia

So Patreon is basically it’s an ongoing Kickstarter, but instead of funding one big project, it finances  the continuous creation of episodic content like  songs, animations and comics.

You can pledge as much as you want per month or just make one donation , and like Kickstarter, different pledges come with different rewards. There are also milestones that will unlock extra content if enough people contribute every month. If you want more information about being a patron, you can check out Patreon’s Patron FAQ.

Here is my page : https://www.patreon.com/HisameArtwork

And my first goal is to raise enough money to hire a programmer to help me make Ernest’s story into an RPG video game. You can read his story here: https://tapastic.com/hisameartwork
