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

Hello all! I'm just here to say that i'll be on hiatus for a bit. Usually i wouldn't make journals about these since they don't seem to last long, but uh i think this one will be a while. I've been in a pretty sucky art block for a month or so now and when i tend to fall into these i stay away from sites i usually go on, not really sure why, maybe because i stress myself to draw something good enough again.... ah i dont understand my mind sometimes. Sadly when i fall into art blocks drawing becomes a chore and i start feel pretty lost if that makes sense. So i'd just like to focus solely on my art, try to find drawing happy again and draw a finished work that im finally really really happy with. As well as that, right now i'm seriously thinking about which direction my art is going into and im not really happy with the way its going, so while im away im just going to brainstorm alot of things in my head too. Heh.



I was to open commissions too but sigh when i get art blocks.....i get them really bad /OTL .. and to open commissions while i have an art block is a definite no no. So for now, ciao guys! If i'm lucky this will only last a month..if im super duper lucky a week(heh as if).


Bye for now, not forever!!! //shot

Ray-ray, you cray cray.

Sorry, i had to say that.

Try doing something different. Work on traditional landscapes, try to work out how to draw clouds. Then tell me. Or something.

I hope you get out of it soon! Try to doodle and not think about how it will look! that is should look pretty or like a certain style
Just draw and see what it takes you, no pressure! It usually helps getting the art block to get loose <3
I hope I still see you on twitter hnnn have it good! :iconsweethugplz:
