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!

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

Random stuff first....


Before I get to the features, SenshiStock posted a news article regarding a Deviant in need.  Sara Baker was in an accident a year ago which  resulted in Locked-in Syndrome, a condition in which a person cannot move anything except their eyes, but still has full mental capacities and intact sensation in their entire body.  Her family has a fund to help with expenses and to get a special computer (that senses eye movements) which would allow her to get online and interact with people more. If you're interested in helping out, you can read the article here:  news.deviantart.com/article/61…;

Also, apologies, but I'm extremely behind in my DA message box right now.  It was bad enough before, but then I went out of town for several days for a wedding, and now it's bursting at the seams.  Sorry if I haven't responded to your comment.  And sorry, but I might end up deleting many of them.  Bad, bad haku, I know, I know!  I do read them all though, even if I might not respond all the time.  D:

Man, I can't believe it's November already.  The year has flown by.  I do hope that any of you eligible U.S. citizens will get out there to vote tomorrow, no matter which candidate you endorse.  I hope the lines aren't too insane for you....  :)


November Features


As usual, I'm featuring sci-fi/fantasy artists (with under 50k pageviews) whose works I've enjoyed browsing through.  They've got some really beautiful stuff in their galleries, so please pay them a visit.  Thanks!  I'm also featuring one community.  I think it's a lovely resource and could prove useful for people.

How tragic :( I'll try to donate a bit tonight. Here's hoping she can make somewhat of a recovery, or what's possible in that horrible condition.


Lovely finds for the features <3
