The game anchor career of pokimane

Pokimane is an outstanding female game anchor. She has more than 8 million followers on Twitch only. However, her career did not go well at the beginning. In September of last year, people start to be picky about her appearance after she became famous. These annoyed her when she was living. More than that, sometimes the duration of Pokimane’s live streaming is beyond 6 hours ,and live streaming require adjusting the light source and embellish her make up, it‘s too tired .

I believe that netizens who have experience in makeup will have experience of the hard work behind this. Makeup consumed pokimane's too much energy, so she began to try to keep her face in the live broadcast, and then she found that this would lose her up to 20% of her fans. So, she cooperated with the artist Teru,he made her image into a 3D virtual model and used her avatar to meet the audience during the live broadcast. The pokimane using the avatar reduced her psychological burden during the live broadcast. According to her own words, when people comment on the virtual pokimane, it feels like it has nothing to do with her, and she can let others say what they want. It also eliminates the trouble of changing clothes and makeup, reducing a lot of pre-live preparation , and reducing the burden of her work.

Pokimane's inspiration for anchors across the network

After Pokimane used the virtual character, although it has also been criticized by some anime enthusiasts that this is not a real VTuber, after all, Pokimane is a head game anchor, and her behavior has also made more people know of the virtual anchor. According to the production The level of the artist and the exquisiteness of the work, the price of a VTuber model ranges from US$500 to US$2500. Although it is expensive to build, the virtual model allows the anchor to avoid others' evaluation of his appearance, body shape, etc., but to focus on the content of the live broadcast, which can create a more harmonious network environment. Not only that also eliminates the need for the layout environment. The work of cleaning the room will not lead to a lack of affinity due to the lack of face during the live broadcast. The virtual model will be a useful tool, especially for those who do not want to show their faces but also want to give the audience a sense of intimacy and presence.
