LIVE STREAMING PLATFORM JUST FOR ARTISTS

I think i can speak for many of us that it would be nice to live stream while drawing/painting and get to chat with, and inspire other artists in real time. I know that when I watch someone draw, i want to draw. The problem is that the most popular live stream platforms (youtube, younow, twitch, etc..) are so full of youngsters who have really no interest in anything but video games and pop music, that it's extremely difficult to get genuinely interested viewers. But if there was a platform exclusively for artists, i believe it would be greatly appreciated and would eliminate the discouragement of not reaching those who are really looking for inspiration and help learning techniques. I'm not even sure if Artwanted is even capable of such an endeavor, but I don't think such a platform exists yet, so it might be something to explore!

Hi Jerry, an interesting thought. How would you go about it. If I wanted tape myself painting what equipment would I need? I have no idea. A video I assume with good lightening around?

All you really need is a decent webcam with a stand so you can point it at whatever you're working on, and a reasonably fast internet connection. Although, I'm not talking about recording videos, i'm talking about live broadcasting, so you can interact with your viewers.
