Initially I began livestreaming and doing Skype in order to get a better following and to make a little bit more money by doing livestreamed art for people. It's extremely rare that I get livestream commissions, so that benefit is almost nonexistent.
Doing livestream takes away from my doing artwork, as talking to people, showing videos, others pictures and such detracts from time actually doing art.
While a community was created by this over the last year, many of them never commission me, which in itself isn't that big a deal.
However I have always worried that as they hung out as a group afterwards, that it could prove damaging. IE- that any drama would be magnified by them talking about it after stream or amongst themselves.
While I do not know if this has happened, it seems that way. Therefore I will cancelling livestream and my skype channel for the meantime. This has always been about art for me, and I just don't care for the drama.
Apologies to those who really liked the streaming, you are welcome to still use the skype channel.
This will give me more time to do artwork without interruption and be more productive with my time.
That is all
