My Official YouTube Channel "Pabgha" / by Pabgha Vaaj

Heey Awesome Individuals, 

Happy June! Another exciting news that I have for y'all: 

I made my official YouTube channel in May 2017. Having a YouTube channel has been in my top art goal list since Fall 2016. It took me till recently to finally do it because I encountered a couple obstacles. 

First Reason: Lack of basic equipment for video editing and recording. For the most part, for the speed-paints in my Instagram. I recorded my earlier speed-paint videos from my cellphone and then worked on video editing on the laptop. I switched over from cellphone to my digital camera (Canon Power Shoot A2300). I like the results better; I'm less recording-time cautious, save phone battery life and storage space, and can record the artwork at night without worrying about the yellow dim lights  from my desk lamp. 

Second Reason: Inconsistent routine and adjusting it into my schedule. 

 Ah, my sweet art habits life of the routine for speedpaint videos: 1. I generate ideas or BRAINSTORM 2. Once I have 2-3 ideas that I want to put on the artwork, I begin to draw. 3. I draw, draw, draw, and draw until (a) I'm satisfied and (b) my lines aren't awkward. I define this part as the "WARM-UP VERSION".  [Step 1 - 3 can take days, weeks, or even months. It's the longest for preparation.] 4. I set up my art space and begin the "SERIOUS VERSION".

Step 4 and onward (which is the video editing and uploading it into different social platforms) is usually the easier workload.

Instead of doing this in ONE day, I expand the work throughout the week. So far, I find this routine helps me greatly. I'm happier and feel less stress. Also, I try to finish the artwork before the deadline (*cough* Sunday *cough*). On the day of the deadline, I focus more on video editing, uploading, and publishing it. In my YouTube, I only have 8 subscribers with an average of 120 views. It's not a lot, but, to me, it's better than a ZERO. It's rewarding, and I'm happy. 

Thanks for checking out this page and your time reading this. I hope you have a awesome beginning days of Juuune. Peace out. - Pabgha
