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

... sounds good but starts to feel uncomfortable. i feel as if in some sort of cocoon ...
... lonesome, uninspired, observing ...

on new year's eve everyone was preparing for dinner, the fireworks, company
while i was watching from a silent and dark apartment on top of the hill
it didn't feel bad, just detached and i still haven't found back all the way ...

new years eve stockholm

Let's call it the fertile void. Good stuff is churning in our subconscious minds, I bet. I'm there with you, actually, hovering right on the edge.

hab's auch schon lange nicht mehr so heftig gehabt wie jetzt... das einzig wirklich gute daran - ich lese mal wieder... das konnte ich jahrelang vor lauter aktivität und tatendrang garnicht mehr... hab dann noch nebenbei gebrauchtbücher bei amazon entdeckt (bisschen teurer wie flohmarkt) und... naja, wenigstens dann tauche ich für eine weile weg und vergesse den frust... :D
(heute kam gerade eine wunderbare, alte, illustrierte ausgabe von wilhelm raabe "die chronik der sperlingsgasse" an... ich weiß absolut nicht was das ist... habe es aber als kind und als jugendlicher immer und immer wieder auf dem bücherregal meines großvaters gesehn und zwar auf einem sonderplatz - bin mal sehr gespannt...)

i know this sucks and i know when you're in it, kind words from other don't help much... i could say it's just a phase, and you'll come out of the cocoon to fly again, but even if you knew i was right you wouldn't believe me at the time being, so i will just be silent, and hug you, now that i've said it all anyway! :D :hug:

I've been there too, for too long. But this inner weather changes as unexpectedly as the outer one, and now, at least two things are coming for your rescue: the spring and the flock of 7 panels. :katana:

:pat: Whenever I feel uninspired ... I spend some time preparing for the moment when I will want to make something. Get your tools and materials ready. Set aside some time to work and do something. Even if you just count sheets of paper, mix paste, load your camera or sharpen pencils ... that will bring you closer to your process of creating something real. And if you feel stuck in a cocoon, use that cocoon for raw material.
