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!

art challenge event [open]
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

I'm not really sure what happened. All I know is that I reported a background from someone else because it contained content of mine, and now all of the sudden all MY artworks have been reported.  I'm absolutely positive that if I don't manage to get it all back, I'll stop uploading on deviantart.

Whoever reported me, I don't know who you are or why you reported me, but my artwork is made by me! I've always given a copyright disclaimer that the orginal characters etc. were not made by me, but the editing most certainly is.

whoever did it is really bitter. your art doesn't deserve to be taken down. D: (I like to think of it as similar to flower arrangement, it's not like you design the flowers themselves but you arrange them so they look awesome ^^) if you disclaim stuff, it's not fair for it to be reported and taken down! I hope you stand strong through this and defend your case. I've been watching you for more than a year now, so I'll back you up if I have to :)

That surely is a lovely way of putting it! I've decided to not give up, even though all my art has been deleted. Expect to see some new stuff from me soon ;)
thank you so much for the support <3

it already got deleted?! that's so unfair... ><
I'm really sorry to see that. Life knocked you down, and I'm glad you decided to get back up again. :)
sure, I'll be waiting for it ^^

Oh no, not you too Sifra! :[ Your art is so beautiful! And dA can be so cruel, even with copyright disclaimers. I hope you don't get the various trolls like I did. >>

Even if they take down your stuff, if you wait a month or so, and reupload, I'm sure they won't do anything. I'm hesitantly starting to upload graphics again and nobody has gotten on my case, yet.

Thanks for the tip! I'm not sure if I'll reupload my old work but I'm most certainly upload new things, I'm not going to let them stop me ^^
