08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

All right, I finally mustered the oomph to finish this out, since no one else spoke up and I hate leaving things unfinished.  :crazy:   So go check these people out, already!

Member of:  :iconshadow-gallery:

A bit about my gallery:

I highly recommend reading the Artist's Comments section.  All of my work comes directly from or is inspired by a specific story, and in some cases won't make complete sense if viewed without that context.  (Of course, if you're the type of person who enjoys a mystery, more power to you.  ;-) )  Also, if you like a particular illustration, I very highly recommend reading the story associated with it.   The image wouldn't exist at all if it weren't for the inspiration.  :-)

And a bit about myself:

The primary reason I have a dA gallery is to house my illustrations of :iconpeahopeless:peahopeless' writings.   They began as a hobby to give myself something to do when Real Life(tm) isn't eating up my time, but they grew into something much more substantial.

For anyone interested in such things, I work primarily with pastel pencils on charcoal paper, occasionally with No. 2 pencil on sketch paper, and when I'm feeling especially masochistic I delve into ink using the most ghetto-fabulous method at hand to remind myself why I don't work with ink.  I  touch up and add lighting effects to my work in Photoshop, and the day dA offers "Traditional Drawing: Mixed Media" as a Deviation Category, I shall celebrate.

I appreciate comments, although I will readily admit that my communication habits are less than ideal.   My time is often monopolized by work or other pursuits, so if I don't respond, please accept my apologies.  It's not personal and I truly appreciate it when someone takes the time to comment.

And now, on with the motley...

Yes, but Fugue was clear that she retains the right to select the features herself. I trust her. ;)

Has just realized I should tell a couple people about this. Feeling like an idiot now.

Oooo I like what you are doing. I also love the whole use of black paper for you art. It has made me go out and buy some of my own and give a try. Also at the same time I'm giving a try to color pencils again so I'm hopeing I'll have art to post. >_< Anyway would be cool to be featured since I'm trying to get more time to draw, damn work and apartment! lol

as a *NON* artist who does *NOT* count, I'm responding only to say .. ...

(sitting here hoping and praying that a certain person, with a certain pic, with a certain P _ _ _ , does not respond. And if she gets here and tries to, I am pre-emptively warning her ... NO.)

Just covering bases. :D

How's that for cryptic?
But you know the dreaded P word.

Huh. That's a neat idea. I'd try it in my journal but I'd get maybe one response. Ever.
