Stream Schedule! (7/18-7/22)

Based on feedback in a couple of polls I ran during last week, I’m adjusting stream start times a little bit this week! Instead of starting at 8:30 PM eastern, streams will now start at 4 pm eastern time. Check the schedule on my Twitch page to see what that is in your local time! I’m hoping this helps make things more accessible for more people!

Here’s what’s on deck this week:

All streams start at 4 pm eastern time this week!

MONDAY 7/18: Working on Follower first half; probably Stardew Valley second half!

WEDNESDAY 7/20: Caves of Qud continues!

FRIDAY 7/22: More Art Fight attacks and taking requests for Twitch bits!

Times are subject to change: check the schedule on Twitch for the latest times!

Hope to catch you at one of these upcoming streams!

Hey there! Here’s the stream plan for this week! 

All streams start at 8:30 PM unless otherwise specified. Find out what that is in your local time by checking the schedule on my Twitch page!

MONDAY 7/11: Art and a game! What game? Haven’t decided yet.

Hope to see you at one of these upcoming streams!

Ask a Chio: Are there Chio hats?

Hats aren’t that common among Chios, because they’re kind of awkward to fit over and around those ears! It’s also not always necessary when you’re in a bright, sunny environment, so the most popular head coverings tend to be modified visor-like hats, or bandannas that can be wrapped around the head easily. 

Chios are from Messenger and Follower, two webcomics set in the same world!

Stream Schedule! (7/4-7/8)

Hey there! I’m planning some more streams for this week!

Here’s what’s on the schedule:

WEDNESDAY 7/6: Caves of Qud: Laser turtle adventures continue!

FRIDAY 7/8: Working on some Art Fight attacks and taking drawing requests from viewers!

Times are subject to change; the best place to watch for changes is on Twitch

July Community Event: Follower Meme-Off!

It’s almost July, and that’s when Follower’s ninth anniversary is! In celebration of this, we’re holding a Follower Meme-Off Challenge in the Discord! Make your own memes based on anything in the comic and submit them in the thread on the server by July 24, which (not coincidentally) is Follower’s ninth anniversary! 

You can make and submit as many memes as you’d like. You can vote for as many memes as you’d like. The meme that gets the most votes wins, and the winning creator gets to request a new emote for the server which I will create! 

Rules:

  • Must be SFW (swearing is ok, because there’s swearing in the comic)
  • You can use any art from the comic, or Bug’s art, or draw your own
  • Post it to the thread on the server in the events channel
    • By posting, you’re agreeing to give other people permission to use your meme, and Bug & Delade permission to use it on the Follower site and related social media.
    • Include whatever name you’d like to be credited as, or none if you don’t want to be credited for some reason.
  • Vote for memes by adding the star reaction. (You can add any other reactions you want too, but the star is what will count as a point towards winning.)
    • You can vote as many times as you want, and you can vote for your own submission.
  • If you need tools or help in making graphics, canva.com is free and easy to use. There is also https://www.kapwing.com/meme-makerPhotopea.com is a free, in-browser photoshop clone.

May the best meme win!

Streaming schedule! (6/27-7/1)

We’re back to sort of a normal schedule again this week, and with some extra good news: I finally made it to Twitch Affiliate! This means that if you pop in and watch while I’m making comics or playing a game, you’ll be helping support the comic via the tiny slice of ad revenue share I get.

Additionally, unlocking affiliate has opened up a bunch of new fun stuff you can do! Just by hanging out and watching the stream, you’ll collect channel points, which in my case are known as Chio Coins! You can spend them on all kinds of ✨fabulous prizes✨, and if you save up enough you can even request a free sketch during an art stream!

Here are my plans for this week:

All streams start at 8:30 PM eastern time!

MONDAY 6/27: Drawing and then doing some Caves of Qud chores

WEDNESDAY 6/29: Caves of Qud: Laser turtle adventures continue!

FRIDAY 7/1: Friday Night Mystery stream! Art? Games? All of the above? I haven’t decided yet!

For Your Consideration: Follower at the Duck Webcomics Awards

Hey readers! The nominations are open for the 2022 Drunk Duck Awards. Follower is eligible for these categories. I can’t nominate myself, but if you make a free DD account, you can! We will need at least a couple of nominations to make it into the running! 

Drunk Duck is a well-established webcomics platform with a long history and a great community. Follower updates there as a mirror, and so can be included as part of the awards this year!

Here are the main categories you can nominate us for!

  • Best Sci-Fi Comic
  • Best Anthropomorphic Comic
  • Best Plot Development
  • Best Protagonist (Dia)

You can also nominate other comics on the DrunkDuck platform! It would be super helpful to even make it into the running, since it helps boost our visibility! Thanks so much for reading!
