Twitched PARTNER!!!

I'm absolutely stoked to announce that as of today I am going to be streaming live on twitch as a PARTNER!!!

I got the news that I was being partnered last week but had a awfully hard time keeping it quiet. I wasn't able to contain the excitment any longer and broke the news to a couple of people whom I have to thank for keeping it contained and not spilling the news.

But today is a an absolute dream and shows that hard work does pay off. I feel that today is the start of something much larger for the future. And all of this is not possible without the support and dedication of my followers and regulars that come to watch me every night. A HUGE thank you to everyone for making this happen! ♡♡♡

1000 Follower giveaway - completed

First off, thank you to everyone who has followed me on twitch and supported me through this amazing journey. I would have never thought that so many people would be interested in what I did. Especially since there were almost no other streamers that I could watch or follow. My leap of faith is surely paying off.

Second, huge shout out to all of you that participated in last nights giveaway. I do apologize for not posting in advance about the giveaway. I was originally planning on doing it at the end of the month, but was getting the feeling that people might adk about it. So I did it in the moment...which was last night lol.

Congratulations to Siba234 gor winning the giveaway. The giveaway included a Winsor Newton Series 7 brush size 00, Vallejo polyurethane grey primer, some paints I will pick up, and a model or two. Everything needed to start painting!

Thank you all again for such amazing support!

1000 Followers Goal reached!

Wow! What an amazing stream last night. It was totally mind blowing and I'm still hyped up about it!

First off, let me say thank you to all of you that decided to follow me and to all my REGS on twitch! Without your support it would be hard pressed for me to do this daily. I really enjoy painting for you all and it had definitely helped me be more consistent with my painting. I'm being pushed everyday to continue to work on finishing up my projects and getting new ones started.

Second, I want to thank Twitch for the opportunity to stream. I've never thought about streaming or doing anything remotely close to what I am doing right now. I've thought about doing some youtube videos in that past, but would always second guess why people would want to watch my videos when there are so many great ones out there already. I found out about Twitch within the last 6-12 months and decided to jump in without second guessing and what an amazing journey it has been so far. Without you guys allowing me to share what I do, I would have never got off my lazy behind to creating the online store I always thought about, doing commissions again, and even having others wear my logo O.O

Anyways, here are a couple of photos from last night stream....still needs to be finished, but wow was it intense and fun to paint! Enjoy the photos and tune in to watch me paint live @ twitch.tv/mi_cho
