I think it's a bit of a shame that the "Artist" role has no other use except as a badge. Especially since the artists then also have to subscribe - and pay - themselves to ultimately be able to use the emotes that they themselves have created for the streamer.
So my girlfriend, who makes my emotes for me, still has to pay to be allowed to use these "own" emotes in the chat.
I would like it if the artists would get a special position and get access to their own emotes without a subscription. You could tie this to the "credits" for example. So that then the person gets the access, who got the artist credits assigned by the streamer.
