Smidget Bot is here! I’ve been keeping myself busy lately and have started streaming on Twitch. My channel is not just about streaming myself playing video games on the computer. But I also do art streams where I can draw, or paint and this has helped me find my creativeness again. I even started to draw animated characters again and decided to reimagine one of my old drawings. I have now created a character from this drawings and I am going to use them as emotes on my Twitch channel.
Birth of Smidget Bot
Below is the original sketch of my robot, the inspiration behind it was actually Reid from Criminal Minds. I started to reimagine this character with the idea of using him for Emotes after becoming Affiliate on Twitch. I thought it would be a fun idea to modernise the image and that he could easily just be a face. It was also great to get back into drawing in my own abstract style, something different to my norm.
Smidget Bot Emotes
At the moment I only have one emote of him available and that’s only for Tier 3 subscribers to which I have none. I’m hoping once I get more subscribers I can get more uploaded for people to use. They can be used in not only my chat but others on Twitch and Discord. I was also thinking of creating T-Shirt designs for a merchandise store to sell.
