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

Lovely Shoujo (Hi Hello) [V2] Misc Emoji-12 (Stars 2) [V1]  I know this is belated but this looked fun and with all the DA fuss I want to say I still love this website <3  
  • How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    11 Years ~ I Feels old >.>

  • What does your username mean?
    Though I've signed my art "Stargirl" ever since I was 13, Stargirl was NEVER an available username you could get even in the earlier internet days. So I shortened it to Star and tried to find a Japanese word I thought I would always appreciate the meaning of. A close friend helped me choose "Masayume" which can mean dreams come true. I believe it's important to always pursue your dreams Even now, I believe it is a good reminder to myself. I use StarMasayume as my username almost anywhere I go. 

  • Describe yourself in three words. Friendly, Lazy, Creative

  • Are you left or right handed? Right

  • What was your first deviation?
    From 2003.. back when I still experimented and tried realism occasionally. Still using Photoshop Elements (maybe even a mouse? Can't recall when I got my table). 
    Syriah by StarMasayume 

  • What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Chibi!! Um and other stuff. Anime art was always attractive to me after my obsession with Sailor Moon. I love fantasy or cute, fanart or original. 

  • If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Super messy colorful style that others make look so awesome. 

  • What was your first favorite?
    From Linda Bergkvist who I idolized after discovering digital artists. 
    Light of Sunflowers by enayla

  • What type of art do you tend to favorite the most?
    Usually two categories... artwork that has a very strong appeal, in colors, characters, scene, or story.... often sweet or strongly emotive. 

    Yume by KyouKaraa  Dream of Road Back by CaringWong  Devil's Drop by NanoMortis  Lovesong by shirotsuki  In the sea by SquChan  The valentine day is joyful by peggyly
    And Fanart... because who doesn't love seeing their favorite characters by other amazing artists? 
    Kiki's Delivery Service Fan-Art by nati Serenity on the Moon by nna  Blush by cartoongirl7  Kohaku by Yaphleen  .Anbu SasuNaru Duo . by sakimichan  fujiwara no sai by guri-chan
     

  • If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    Any of my favorite artists? *_* I've been lucky to meet a lot of awesome people at cons though I got to keep in touch with through DA.

  • How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    A few artists friends mostly through journals. I'm always afraid to be really personal in journals but admire and feel touched by others who share more about themselves and their life. 

  • What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Painter has mostly been my favorite program of choice though I have started using photoshop or mixing more. Tablet (now cintiq! Though I sometimes still use the good ol intous... rather attached after all those years.) Traditionally I love copic multiner pens, prismacolors markers, pencils, and copics. 

  • What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    My room is my haven. I have a second story room I will not move out of until I'm married. Windows open up to enclosed trees and lots of greenery, my computer sits at the edge of my bed so I can lounge and cuddle with my kitties. I'm surrounded by art, books, music, and Christmas lights (year round). 

  • What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    Every big mile stone. I remember the days being excited by every favorite, every new comment or watcher. It is too hard to keep up and thank everyone but I'm amazed that I have so many people who watch me and follow my art <3 As for specific memories, getting a DD for my City Angel art was very exciting and memorable. And logging in to tons of birthday wishes. kaomoji set 1 9/19 Above that is the warm happiness I get every time I meet someone at a con and they excitedly tell me they remember my art from DA... <3

kaomoji set 1 9/19 Oh my gosh Nati, thinking about it I've been a fan of your art since the Epilogue days! You may have even been one of the ones I found DA through. Always adored your style so much.

I was wondering that myself so ended up finding it and logging in. So it's still there! Though it doesn't seem as active as it was in the past.
