Last week, we teamed up with a group of ultra-talented Twitch Creative artists for a special Streamline creative fan art project. After an incredible week of creating, we’re thrilled to present to you the final pieces from these 16 artists.
From gorgeous digital paintings to whimsical watercolors, dynamic clay sculptures to meticulously crafted leather goods(!), we were amazed by the diverse talent and style that each artist brought to the table. Feast your eyes on all the Streamline goodness below, then be sure to check out the VODs to see how each artist crafted their piece—and don’t forget to give their channel a follow to show support!
Digital Painting (Art Nouveau Style)
In ClevaGurl‘s words: “I was hugely inspired by Alphonze Mucha and the Art Nouveau style. I used bold solid line work and complemented it with soft graduation in the color. Since the style of the piece was strongly Nouveau, I wanted the color to truly embody Streamline’s bright, eye-popping colors.”
In DerpTyme‘s words: “I was really inspired by the promotional Streamline artwork, and the bright and bold colors and effects in the game! Something I love to do with my work is bring bold poses and fun colors to really make everything pop. I’ve been recently diving into a lot of comic book research as well, and I feel that also influenced my choice for the composition and pose.”
In DjTechlive’s words: “For me, I was trying to mimic the energy and feel of the style you guys incorporated in Streamline. I added some comedic relief, seeing as I am always laughing and (screaming) while playing.”

In Elentori’s words: “The piece started out as a large pencil sketch in my sketchbook while I worked through different pose ideas. I wanted to have fun drawing my own spin on the avatar I had created in-game, while keeping the peppy, happy nature of the game. The game’s concept art was a huge inspiration, and beyond that I just tried to recreate the feel of the game but in my own style. It was amazingly fun to work with and I’m glad I did! The stop signs were a great idea.”

In MissCoookiez’s words: “This was very different from what I usually do, so thank you for the challenge! I ended up making a watercolor and ink piece instead of oils.”

Drawing with Colored Pencils, Pigments & Inks
In MrMarsRising’s words: “Paper/media type: 11″ x 17″ Strathmore Board. The compilation consists of pencil/pen for the overall outlining and detailing of the piece. I then used a combination of Prismacolor colored pencils, blended with Clean Color – ZIG pigment pens. For dark blacks, I used Acrylic based artist ink in the form of “Inkwash” (which is varied tones/diluted ink) to achieve gray scale/shading. For the highlights, I used a Uni-Ball white pigment pen. I then sealed the drawing with Grumbacher art sealer/archival spray. The approximate work time was 15 hours.”
In the Oabnormal’s words: “The image was made in Photoshop CS6, using a Wacom Cintiq 22HD. The idea behind the image was to reflect the parkour action and movement, where both the characters and scenery are equally important.”
In QaziTV’s words: “My process was fairly simple. I played the game a bunch with my viewers to get a feel for how the levels looked and felt, and then I had one of my subs send me their in-game avatar to include in the image, along with my own. I really wanted to capture the high energy and bright, warm colors of the game. I looked at a lot of parkour reference to pose the characters as well.”

In simply_jxn’s words: “I originally decided to work in gouache on this since the game is so vibrantly colored, so the colors will really pop! In the end, it’s mostly watercolor with some bits of other mixed media thrown in.”
Leather Laptop Bag
In Suchikuchi’s words: “I decided to create a laptop case. My idea for the laptop case is to put the names of all my subscribers on the bag itself. It will be a bunch of names scattered all over the bag to represent the people who are in chat, and then to have something to represent the streamer, I’ll be using a portrait of some of the characters that people have created from Streamline as the middle piece.”
VOD: Session 1
In VisualJamie‘s words: “I was super inspired by this Halloween outfit you guys have available for your characters. It’s super cool how Twitch’s Bleed Purple heart is in there too!”
In Vulpsie’s words: “Initially we were going to sculpt the ‘sideways crab walk effect’ that chat can enable [Crabcore], because I thought it was hilarious. But after I had started to build up the character, I felt like there wasn’t enough movement (which the game is very much based upon). So I went back to play the game again and really felt like the focus should be on the Hunter, who has a little bit of everything the game is about! I started building up the basic structure of the Hunter first, then attached the character to the board with a wire, turned the wire into a [boost] trail, then added wardrobe, weapon, and details!”
