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

Well, I wish I would  have started journal entries when I first decided to actually post anything.  Since I didn't, this first ones a little long.

I had a DA account for four months before I actually got brave enough to post anything of mine on it.  Well, I had been browsing DA for nearly two years just because I loved the art posted on it.  Then last August I discovered all of the stock resources available and decided to try it out for myself.  My very first photomanips are in my fairy folder.

Then here in the last week or two I decided to actually post some of my work to my account.  Since I was reading J.R.R. Tolkien at the time (I do at least once a year) I decided to start with a series on the Queens of the Valar.  I've done a few tutorials I've found on the web so these are a little better then my first attempts but I still have a long way to go.  I hope that by posting them I will get some useful feedback on how to improve them.  

The DA's in my favorites are what I wish I could create.  They're kind of my goal and I'm going to keep working at it. Luckily a lot of people that have some really great work posted on DA also provide tutorials in how they achieve their affects.  I'll always post links to any tutorials on DA I use.

I decided to go ahead and post my very first work as well so that looking back, I'll be able to see how I've improved and what I need to work on.
