The Trading Post
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

Contest Update


Just a reminder that I'm holding an annual Rurouni Kenshin fanart contest, and that the deadline is August 15th.  For rules and info, please go here:  hakubaikou.com/contests/2008/r…


Feature:  7 Cool Artists


As for the feature, I'm thinking of making this a monthly thing.  I hope people don't mind.  Anyway, as with last time, I'm featuring some really cool sci-fi/fantasy artists who have fewer than 50k page views.  There's a lot of really lovely stuff here, so please feel free to look at their galleries!  Thanks.  :)

Usage


My artwork is not stock imagery, so please don't treat it as such. ^_^

In a nutshell:
1. Don't alter/edit/mutilate my art.
2. Don't claim it as your own.

The following are fine as long as you don't alter my images. No need to contact me for permission:
  • Downloading my art for your personal viewing pleasure.
  • Using my artwork as your desktop image.
  • Printing out my art for your personal use (like putting it up on the wall of your room.)
  • Displaying my artwork UNALTERED as part of a picture gallery on your site. (It'd be nice if you gave credit.)


I would ask that you please do NOT do the following:
  • Other than re-sizing, please do NOT alter/edit my art. Do not crop it. Do not change the colors. Do not draw on top of it. Do not remove my signature. Do not add text over it.
  • Do NOT use my artwork as part of your website/blog/myspace background or layout design.
  • Do NOT use my artwork for banners, avatars, sigs, and tubes.
  • Do NOT claim my artwork as your own.
  • Do NOT take my art without permission and sell it for profit.

aacck! i've been so caught up I hadn't had the time to finish the fanart!
i'll just try next year, lol. probably, ahaha. AP! I'll do so then.
I like your featured artists! Very glad you put them there- they're all deserving of a little bit more attention, in my opinion.

No worries! The contest should never be an obligation! It should only be for fun when you have plenty of freetime. :)

And thanks! I've enjoyed featuring artists. I'm going to do it every month now. It's fun looking around for people to feature.
