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

Recently a few things happened:

- I hit 10k profile views on DA.
- 100 Subscribers on Twitter
- I joined SoFurry, FN and Furiffic.
- I made a crossposter tool to help me be lazy and crosspost more easily.
- I made some basic statistical analysis of my DA gallery out of curiosity.I discovered :
 1. Which species I draw more often (i.imgur.com/8uonMw2.png)
 2. That my gallery is a sausagefest (i.imgur.com/PlSVjnn.png)
 3. That I've drawn more for others than myself :) (i.imgur.com/9OFkWoi.png)
 4. That I usually didn't receive much in exchange :( (i.imgur.com/wY70Ug0.png)

But more importantly, recently:
 I drew in the bus.

While I was doodling Opal on my iPad -yet again- (i.imgur.com/h91xwOQ.png)
A woman approached me to tell me she liked my technique, curious of what I was drawing and generally showing interest for it.
I was flattered, fuzzy and shy, I showed her what else I had saved on my iPad.
She complimented me a lot and I thanked her a lot.

Then we totally banged. /s

This made me realise how much I owe my relative success in this hobby to others.
To every single one of you.

Not everyone might've guessed this, but if I had not received the support you gave me, I would've given up a long long time ago.

I wanted to sincerely thank everyone of you for that.

More precisely:


I want to thank the /r/furry community and mods.
You gave me a positive place to lurk and meet others with common interests.

I want to thank the redditfurs steam group.
I don't miss spriting for SS13 though.

I want to thank the Fireburg crew for embarking in what I still consider my greatest project so far.
You made me have a real blast, gave me confidence in my creativity and helped me conceive a world I hope to someday revisit.

I want to thank everyone who complimented me or used/showed around the drawing I gave you.
You made me realise a lot of you actually like what I do!

I want to thank everyone who critiqued or gave feedback.
You made me realise how I could improve.

I want to thank everyone who commissioned or traded me.
You made me realise what I did wasn't worthless and what I was doing was paying off in both senses of the term :)

I want to thank people watching the stream regularly or even now and then.
You are the ones who make me look forward to drawing more so much :)

I want to specifically thank DougalDragon.
You were there when I was truly about to give up. You stuck around and still do.
There's no replacing #1 fan Doug. Give up everyone else, he's almost obsessed!

I want to specifically thank Phus.
You're my favourite windmill-doggo :)

I want to specifically thank Frostbite and Vixxy.
I didn't think I could inspire others to pick up this hobby too! I hope you're having fun!

I want to specifically thank Daisie.
I like being enslaved with endless trading.

Everyone, thank you.

On a semi-related note, I'd like to do something more to celebrate, Phus proposed a Q&A stream, I'd love to do that, any other ideas?
I'll try and do a stream friday as long as I can! :)
