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

The latest version of Firefox (official 3.5 and BETA 3.6 versions) can support colour managed profiles for those of you who have:

A) Wide gamut monitors (such as the HP L2475W).
B) Colour calibrated monitors.

To enable or check what the mode is currently set to simply type "about:config" into your address bar without the quotes and do a search for "gfx.color"

On the entry "gfx.color.mode" will probably be a number value, the default should be 2 but you can customise this with:

0 = Color management is disabled for everything
1 = Color management is enabled for all rendered graphics including untagged images which will assume sRGB
2 = Color management is enabled for all rendered graphics except untagged images which are left unmanaged.

If web images on FlickR/DeviantART and other photo based sites were looking too bland and washed out then the above may help resolve this.

Anyone wishing to colour calibrate (I highly recommend it as the results are excellent) then should look at the XRite EyeOne Display2 colorimeter which will cost around £120. The bundled software is good but you can also use Lacie Blue Eye Pro which is more robust and gives more accurate calibrations.
