88. Twitch update.

So, I've updated my Twitch recently.
I've been trying to stream 3 times a week, and thought it was time I got my shit together.

So you can check my channel out at twitch.tv/darkhazzl3

My schedule has been updated and can be found on this very blog under the Twitch Schedule tab.

Streams will usually be Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursday's at 10/11 pm GMT.
Time may vary.

Technical Tuesday; If I'm doing an art stream, this will probably be the day! May play games to test out mods and glitches too!

The Old School Nintendo show w/ MyWallet; Melee mods and more, usually terrible, old Nintendo games.

Free for all Thursday: I'll play whatever/ what the stream votes for!

Any other streams will be announced via Twitter, so keep you eyes peeled!

Select Vods will be uploaded to my YouTube.
I really want to start creating a community around my Twitch and YouTube channels.

I've set up a Discord channel for 'The Bross,' and a lot of the community will be there, or The Bross stream group.

In addition to this I've decided to set up a Revlo.
Revlo allows streams to reward folks who consistently watch their stream, and follow them on various social media/ other online outlets,

You can check out the rewards and such over on https://www.revlo.co/darkhazzl3.

That's it for now, So go check that shit out yeah?

87. Speedpaint: Dex the Tiefling Sorcerer.

If you're subscribed to me on YouTube you may have seen my latest video (If not, you should totally clink here now!)

In this video I drew one of my friend's (and potential future member of The Bross) Dungeons and Dragons characters; Dex the Tiefling Sorcerer as an Avatar.
The video is the product of 2 separate streams on my Twitch channel (which you can follow by clicking here!).
It took about 7 hours to draw and paint (with a few hiccups along the way!), but I've condensed it down to about 20 mins by upping the speed by 2500 times!

Anyway, you should go check it out.

Thanks for reading and watching!
Comments and constructive criticism always welcome, either here, on the video itself or on the completed pieces Instagram post

If you'd like to know what I'm doing follow me on YouTube, Twitch and all the socials @DarKHaZZl3.
Also, I've updated The Underhive Hero with some more hobby project goodness, so go check that out too.

86. Dear Diary...

This is one of those more self reflecting blog posts, more like a diary entry...

My head has been all over the place recently.
A lot of bad things seem to have decided to happen all at once, and fate has decided it's going to do its very best at blocking all attempts at recovery.

Obviously Brexit annoyed the ever loving fuck out of me.
That's a given.

But since then it just seems like everything has hit a downward spiral.

I smashed the front wheel of my car into a curb, wrecking two tires in the process, which was fantastic.

Then I got made redundant.
The job I've spent 3 to 4 years trying to get back in to.
They're closing the store I work at, and opening a single staffed store at another location.

So, yeah... that's been pretty shit.
Having to job hunt is soul destroying.
Doing it with an unemployment deadline hanging over your head is far to much pressure.

To top it all off, my social life just keeps taking a beating.
I feel like I did years ago... during and after University.
That crushing sense of loneliness that goes hand in hand with everyone you ever feel anything for either being a total dickbag to you, or just generally disregarding you for reasons.

All of this has just lead to this bad mood I just can't seem to shift.
Today I feel totally defeated and down, and the only thing I have to console me is myself and the void that is the internet.

I just don't get it.
When others in my life are down I do my damnedest to be there for them... to help them and to occasionally surprise them with things to keep their mood up.
But no one seems to think to do those things for me anymore.
They just get mad at me for being annoyed when they trample all over me.

And then I have to go to a job I don't have anymore, and pretend to be as happy as fuck when people ask about the store moving.

It is draining my will to keep this up, and there is no sight of someone who will help me through it, because taking these hits alone is soul destroying.
