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

Soo, yeah, I promised you all a story this month. This month is almost over. I bet you're asking "Hey, faggot! Where's that fucking story!?"

I've neither forgotten nor abandoned the project. It's just between a few major distractions and just generally feeling uninspired, I haven't been getting to it as of late. I'm sure you've all heard the "art feels like a chore" excuse a squillion times so I'll just say that I'm both lazy and have been dealing with some less-than-enjoyable shit lately, especially that I'll probably never see my two terriers ever again. They were good dogs, but they needed to be somewhere where they can get better care since, let's face it, Jack Russel Terriers are too perpetually spazzy for me and my sister to handle. Our mutt and cat are still here, though. They're pretty laid back.

But yeah, figured you all deserved a status report. Sorry for my lack of updates. Was hoping I'd get over these dryspells for 2013. Guess not.

Sorry to hear that man. Life's tough, and an artist's life is no better. The excuse of "I don't feel like it" is actually a legitimate excuse when it comes to doing art. It's nearly impossible to sit down and do it when you're not in the mood. But hey, you just gotta be proud of what you HAVE done. I remember before I really became an artist I would always read your stories and just get so immersed in them. And I HATE reading. I'd be excited for the next chapter of Aisu and Ruby's story, and I'd really connect with the characters. You're a great artist man. You really are. Just remember that.

Well, whenever it does come out, I know it'll be a good read. You know, I owe you in a way. You were one of the reasons I became an artist in the first place.
