Off-perspective drawing

In this seminar, I talk about landscape drawing and painting from an unusual perspective.

Well well well, just when I thought the axe was gonna fall... the Livestream staff came along and SAAAAVED the day! Earlier, my account was in jeopardy because I'd had so much video-on-demand content bandwidth usage of both storage and viewing had pushed me way over the limit of a free account.

But in an ironic twist, that same crazy overuse of bandwidth was probably what drew attention from Livestream staff, and they felt the channel was popular enough to offer a partnership account! No small amount of credit for this serendipitous happening goes to YOU, my viewers!

TL;DR what does this mean?

oh god I am so hungry I will finish this post after a snack
Until then, stay tuned for a more official press release.

Livestream videos going down on Sept. 1st

Livestream will be enforcing their 10GB limit for free users on Sept. 1st. I'm over that limit by 65.24 GB.

So I'm gonna have to delete a big chunk of those videos by Sept. 1st.

There's way too much footage for me to bother dealing with moving it over to Youtube, so you might as well watch what you can before I take it down.

Livestream's turned out to be only good if I'm doing focused lectures where I'm the only guy working, but it's not so good for critiques and collaborations. And besides that, I've finally got enough of my story worked out that I can actually start working on some designs for story elements.

TL;DR: I'm gonna be broadcasting from early in the morning around 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM at night, Except for Tuesdays when I go out for life drawing.

I might do livestream sessions if I have a particular lecture or subject to cover

Getting kind of tired of posting Youtube videos since each time I record a video, it eats up a few gigs of hard drive space, takes a while to convert, a while to post, etc. etc. etc...

So now I'm using livestream and teaching people interactively, etc.

I hold broadcasts at random times of the day and don't stick to any particular schedule.

You can view everything RIGHT HERE by hitting the "On-Demand" button on the player below to see past recordings. This is also where you can chat with me or others during live broadcasts (or while others are viewing the prerecorded On-Demand stuff) When I'm on, I'll show up in the chat as "moatdd".

DISCLAIMER: these are totally unscripted chats, and some content/language will offend the easily offended. There's drawn nudity, some sexual themes and stuff I'd consider only suitable for 18+ audiences.
