:meditate: About myself:
My Name is Lukas Esch and I'm a Concept Artist / Designer from Germany.
I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, but started taking it seriously after discovering some of the science behind the magic of a good painting.

Hey!

During the last few days I started livestreaming again. I used to stream my painting process in the past, but that happened very irregular.

So I decided that I could actually create myself a new livestream channel to get my ass up every day (or at least every few days).
Luckily a few friends joined me as well, so we are trying to stream every evening now.

Feel free to stop! My daily evening streams are around 9-10pm GMT+1. All streams are also getting announced on Facebook and Twitter, so if you follow me on there, you'll know when I start.

But why do I actually stream my art?
Well, there are different reasons:

  • No distractions:  Once you are live, you don't surf on Facebook, Youtube or any other website anymore because you know that people are watching you. They want to see you paint, so you have to do it. Every second you are spending in your browser can be seen by your viewers. And I guess you also don't want to show them your private social network life, do you?
  • Saving the painting process as a video: I really enjoy watching my own process from time to time because this way I can easily analyze where I'm having difficulties and where not. While painting you usually don't notice that kind of stuff.
  • Getting to know other people / artists: SOCIALIZE! There is nothing better than meeting other artists, giving critiques and helping each other. Friends keep you motivated and can help you once you're stuck. So get to know the people in your livestream!

So there are three good reasons to start streaming now! Go to livestream.com, set up an account and then you're ready to go.
You may also want to check out this wonderful Livestream App. A friend called "Wolkenfels" made this application and it shows you all livestreams that are online. You can also contact him to get your own livestream into the list. BUT it has to be art.
