Twitch Affiliates!

500x500.png

Hey everyone!

Bet some of you didn’t know that Rando had a Twitch channel!
That’s right! Rando and friends have been using Twitch to stream for a while!

Though, despite being called ‘randowis’ on twitch, we never streamed anything art related. It’s only been used as an excuse for the boys and me to play games together, so that we can keep in touch. Eventually, as we kept streaming every week, we thought it could be fun if we took streaming to the next level with the fans, hence it became a personal goal of ours to want to be affiliates (and perhaps one day, partners) on Twitch.

We tried for a long time, and I’m happy to announce that we are finally Twitch affiliates! Hooray, baby steps!

HOWEVER, as the 5 of us contributed equally to make our streams happen, I didn’t want the impression of our Twitch channel to be “It’s Rando! ..oh yeah, those guys too..”.
Thus, we’ve decided to rename our twitch channel to one that we can refer to ourselves as a group, and not ‘one somewhat popular guy with his other side dudes’!

“Randowis changed, geese flew, and the salt, salty; SaltyGeese.”

That’s right, we’re calling ourselves, SaltyGeese!
Therefore, if you’re into streams, drop by our channel at:
twitch.tv/saltygeese!

We even created a Twitter account so that ‘RandoWis’ won’t be littered with twitch announcements anymore! Hooray!
https://twitter.com/SaltyGeese

Hopefully we can make your day with our streams!
Special thanks to everyone who has supported us on Twitch thus far!
Here’s hoping all of us can go even further together on Twitch!

Love you much much, and I’ll see you in the next post!

(By the way, we’ll be having our first stream as SaltyGeese in about 2 hours! Join us if you can!)

Happy New Year! So what’s new?

Hey everyone!

Hope Christmas and the New Year were great to you!

Rando’s back from the break with a bit of news!
As you all probably know, I took this break because I wanted to focus on addressing the personal conflict of what I believe RandoWis was, and what I’d like it to be.

Well, after some thought, I’ve come to a couple of conclusions, those being:
– Doodles will be discontinued!
– RandoWis will now revert back to 1 comic/week, MMO Chapters, and Art on the side!

During the break, I realised that I wasn’t enjoying making the doodles anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate the doodles or anything like that, they were definitely something fun to do with the fans! It’s just that the process of making the doodles started feeling more like a chore. Yeah they might be ‘doodles’, but I realise that I usually don’t allow myself to publish them if I feel like they aren’t up to standard. I can’t bring myself to upload scribbles every bi-weekly I guess. As a result, the doodles take up the whole weekend to make, sometimes longer, to be honest.

It’s another one of those classic mistakes where Rando puts too much on his plate, only to realise he can’t finish everything (remember Monthly-Wis? Rando remembers. Rando will never forget..).

WHYYYY.jpg

I tried experimenting with the schedule last year to try and balance the workload, from ‘comic + doodle per week’ to ‘comic this week, doodle next week’.
We can see how well that worked out now after 1 year, haha.

So instead of wasting time figuring out how to balance the workload again, I’m just gonna take a step back, and revert to how RandoWis was when it first started; Weekly Comics, MMO, and art on the side!
Those were simpler times, but now I see that they were only made difficult by my own hands. Such blasphemy!

Hopefully this will help in reducing the time taken to make MMO chapters as well! I remember making a joke in 2017 about releasing only one chapter a year, and in 2018, we didn’t even release a full chapter! Shouldn’t have jinxed it, dammit!

Anyway, that’s it from me for now!
I’ll see you in the next post!
Love you much much, and here’s wishing 2019 will be fantastic for you! ♥

(UPDATE) – Chapter 7 (Part 2) Out This Saturday!

 

MMO_CHP_7_PT_02_ANNON_ALL.jpg

Hey everyone!
MMO’s Chapter 7 (Part 2) will be released this Saturday!
For Patrons, you can read it today on Patreon!
https://bit.ly/2zN9qI4

Also, I’ll be taking a break this month, so there’ll be no releases (short comics/doodles) for the time being!

TLDR; I believe there’s a personal conflict of what RandoWis currently is, and what I’d like it to be. So, I’d like to take the time after Chapter 7 (Part 2)’s release to give myself some needed attention to address these issues and reevaluate what I have, need, and want.

I hope you guys aren’t too let down by this news, but I thank you for your care and concern!
Thank you for the love and support as well!

(UPDATE) – Chapter 7 (Part 1) Out This Saturday!

 

CHP_007_ANNON_ALL.jpg

Hey everyone!
Apologies for the silence last week!
Was making that final push to finish MMO’s Chapter 7 (Part 1) by today!
Good news is, it’s done!

It will be released for everyone to read this Saturday (23/6/2018)!
If you’re supporting me on Patreon, you can read it today!

In all honesty though, these past several months have been pretty rough, and I can’t thank everyone enough for your patience and understanding.
Thank you.

I hope you’re looking forward to it!
Love you much much!

For those who have yet to read “We Live In An MMO?!” or if you wanna catch up, you can read all the chapters here:

Also, doodle winners for this week might be a little late as I’ve just started working on them now!
Sorry about that!
I’ll see you in the next post!

A little announcement!

Hey everyone, just wanted to make a little announcement!
The fire brigade has called me back for a couple of weeks, starting this week til the 7th March.
I’ll be going to the fire station once every 3 days for a full 24 hours, so Randowis will be slightly affected.
 
No worries though! I’ve adjusted my schedule so that comics and doodles wouldn’t be affected on the weekends, BUT, this means MMO Chapter 7 (Part 1) will be pushed back.
It would also mean that I won’t be able to finish the other projects I’ve been meaning to finish this month.
 
My apologies.
I’ll still be doing my best to get as many things done as I can!
Thank you for your patience!
 
I’ll see you in the next post!

Heeeere’s Rando!

IM BACK.jpg
Hey everyone!
That’s right, Rando’s back, and boy do I have a lot to say!
It’s gonna be a long post, so to keep things organised, I’m going to categorise this post into 3 parts; ‘Explanation’, ‘Updates and Changes’, and the ‘Current Progress of MMO’s Chapter 6’.
Let’s get started then!
 
1.) Explanation
So let’s begin with why Rando’s supposed 4 week hiatus turned to into 10 weeks.
The answer is simple actually; family.
Immediately after I posted that I’d be going on a hiatus in August, a couple of things happened literally at the same time. One of which I won’t get into too much detail (but thankfully it’s over), and the other being GrandpaWis’ looming signs of dementia.
To oversimplify, both required my immediate attention for quite some time, and unfortunately, Grandpa still does.

Don’t worry though, it’s nothing too serious, but if it comes to a point where I have to push RandoWis aside (and I pray it never does), I’ll be sure to give everyone a heads up.

 

Thankfully though, Rando is able to come back, but with a few changes!
Good? Bad? I’ll let you decide!
2.) Updates and Changes
So as I was working on Chapter 6 during these past 10 weeks, I did a lot of thinking of how I could better provide RandoWis for you guys and also, myself.
The first thought I had was ‘NEVER DOING AN 80 PAGE RELEASE EVER AGAIN’.
The second thought I had was how I used to rush every weekend to produce a comic and doodle, while working on MMO too. Sometimes I’d end up sacrificing a comic because the doodles were taking too long to draw, and other times, family-time was the price.
Fret not, it’s not your fault! It’s the artist who can’t deliver!
The last thing I want is to burn out a second time,
so here are the changes that I have in mind:
(a.)
Doodle Raffles will be conducted once every 2 weeks instead of every week.
(Patrons-Only)
EXAMPLE:
Vote starts 18th Nov ►►► Results displayed on 2nd Dec
New vote starts 2nd Dec ►►► Results displayed on 16th Dec
…and so on.
(b.)
Weekly comics will be released once every 2 weeks as well.
The plan is to release doodles and comics alternately every week.
EXAMPLE:
2nd Dec → Doodles
9th Dec → Comics
16th Dec → Doodles
25th Dec → Comics
…and so on, again.
(c.)
Not-So-MonthylyWis QnA will be open to all instead of Patron-Only.
(Let’s be honest though, we all thought this was dead.)
However, IF there is a MonthlyWis coming up, questions will be taken from 1 source at a time.
EXAMPLE:
MonthlyWis Episode 4 → Questions from Facebook
MonthlyWis Episode 5 → Questions from Twitter
MonthlyWis Episode 6 → Questions from Patreon
…and so on, yet again.
(d.)
THAT’S IT! MMO IS DONE! NO MORE!
Nah just kidding.
However, I am being serious when I said that I never want to do another 80 page release.
It’s ridiculous. You wait too long, I take too long.

I’m looking at the script for Chapter 7, and I can already foresee it being around 40-50 pages.

 

So this is what I’m gonna do:
Starting from Chapter 7, MMO Chapters will be released in PARTS.
Each PART will have not more than 25 pages.
So if Chapter 7 has 50 pages, it would most likely be released as:
Chapter 7 Part 1

Chapter 7 Part 2

 

I can’t say for sure how long it will take to produce each release like this, but I can guarantee it won’t take another 8 months.
In other words, less pages per release = more frequent releases.

I don’t want another 8 month production period, PLEASE!

 

————————————————————————————-

 

So these are the changes that I currently have in mind.
Of course, I’d like to hear your thoughts about them first before implementing anything.

What do you think about these changes? Love ’em? Hate ’em?

 

Just a suggestion, but if there’s something in particular that you’d like to mention, you can indicate them in this manner:
“2a, I hate this idea you traitor.”
“2b, Thou shall be crucified for thy incompetence, thou rancorous shag-haired coxcomb.”
…and so on, YET again.

3.) Current progress of MMO Chapter 6

 

Remember when I said that I’d returned when Chapter 6 is done?
Well, apparently it seems that I lied.
We’re almost there though, expect a release very soon!
I’ll be sure to post EVERYWHERE once I can confirm the release date! (Again, very soon!)
Don’t forget though, Patrons get EARLY ACCESS!
I hope you’re all excited, because I sure am!
On a side note, I’ve been wanting to ask both Patrons and Non-Patrons a question.
Since I began my journey with Patreon, I’ve always felt that the rewards for MMO releases could be better than what they currently are;
Updates, Early Access, and Behind-The-Scenes.
However, I haven’t been able to come up with much ideas myself, ….probably because I’m too afraid to promise something that I’ll end up not being able to keep up with …like MonthlyWis. >_>
SO, my question is;
To my current Patrons, what would you like to receive as additional rewards for MMO releases?
To my Non-Patrons, what is it that would interest you as a reward on Patreon?
Do let me know in the comments what you think!
Have an opinion/idea? Are the rewards sufficient enough as it is?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
*DISCLAIMER THO!*
I’m not saying I am definitely going to add a new reward for MMO releases!
I’m just curious to know what you think would make an interesting reward!
If your suggestion sounds fair and do-able, I might consider it though!
Anyway,
So that’s where we are right now.
One more thing I’d like to add is, seeing as to how making changes to the schedules, hearing your opinions about them, and having to restart would be too rushed in a week, I’ve decided to stop Patreon payments for November as well.
With all this happening, I can foresee Chapter 6 probably being the only release this month! Haha!
I’ll reactivate my Patreon on 4th December 2017!
Hope you don’t mind!
Please bear with me for a little bit longer!
Never forget, your love and support is always appreciated!
Rando loves you much much, and he’ll see you again.
Very soon.
Muacks~
