Let emotes artists use the emotes they draw for partnered streamers for free
It would be awesome if Twitch allowed artists who design emotes for partnered streamers use them for free!
A suggestion is for Twitch to create the option for partnered streamers to specify which artist(s) created their emotes when they upload them which would then allow the artist to use those emotes on Twitch.
Benefits to this is that it would provide more exposure to both the streamer and the artist. The artist would get more promotion through sharing their created emotes on Twitch. Fans of the artist who enjoy their art style would be able to see which emotes the artist has created and which stream they're from. As a result, this would bring more exposure to the streamer, leading to more subs!
I feel that Twitch artists, though they contribute so much to the streamer communities, often receive little recognition for their hard work since they work behind-the-scenes. It'd be nice if Twitch implemented this feature to show their support for their artists!
Why hasn't this been implemented yet, it seems pretty obvious and its actually insane it wasn't part of the original rollout of the attribution feature.
Actually what I did was allowed a lifetime tier 3 for the artist since this wasn't a option. Definitely would like to be able to have a way to do this without having to do something like that. Just in case you change around your emote artists.
AMAZING idea! This should definitely be implemented.
below comment, not sure what ur talkin about. it's just allowing the user to use the emote that they made
I get where you're coming from, but isn't that basically the same as taking a commission and then using the art you were commissioned to make for other things without regard to the spirit (or even letter, depending on the contract) of the transaction? It seems kind of skeevy to covet the emotes of someone you have no intention of supporting...
Yes that sounds like a great idea :D
Even tho the emotes I made are for affiliates, I still would love to use them :P
As an emote artist, it feels so weird to get paid for drawing emotes, only to have to pay for the ability to use them. A sort of "verified artist" status would be nice, especially since many streamers will commission one or two artists to do all of their emotes.
Artists have a hard time getting work recognized by the community as is, but it's even harder with so many streamers using emotes and people not knowing easily who created the work. It would be great if the streamer could allow access to the artist for their own emotes to be used anytime without needing to sub to each channel they made work for. It would help advertise the artists' own work as well as shout out the channel that the emote is available on. It would be a win-win situation for artists and streamers. I hope you see this and consider the option! Thank you!
Artists should receive a free sub to channels they created emotes for
or artists should have 1 or 2 free subs to a channel/s of their favourite emotes that they created
i get a bit antsy when an artist says on stream
"Oh i need to go resub to soandso so i can use my own emotes on twitch!"
it's a bit silly when they're paying, and basically not gettting paid for their art

i Totally agree also !!!! Lets support these artist,
Totally Agreed, There is Bttv But Some days it takes more then 12 hr to approve emotes.
They should be able to! Its the same as having BTTV Emotes except just paid for
The streamer can just give a free sub to the artist.
