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

First of all, I hope all of you guys remembered that today was D-Day. I'll be sorely disappointed if you didn't. That shit was kind of a big deal.

Anyway, wanna know something funny? I'm not working yet. Yeah, my first job is taking so damn long with my drug test and background check that at this point I just called my second job and asked them to start me, but I won't hear anything until tomorrow, at the earliest. I can't take anymore commissions since I'm a tad backed up on the ones I'm already doing. All sorta annoying and I guess it's sorta my fault for letting them get backed up.

Though I did manage to cut into my load a bit this week, and I've even found time in between to draw some other shit. I'll try to submit some stuff here and there, but no guarantees, especially when I start working. Hopefully this weekend or next week, I'll work on moving into a new place with some buddies of mine. They live in probably the cheapest apartment complex in the area, so the rent, which will be split 3 ways, will be very doable for me once I start working.

Anyway, I'll submit something today. I apologize that it's not a commission, but I promise it didn't take too long. I've spent the past couple months writing stories for people, and if I don't draw something for me in between once in a while, I'll go nuts. :c

A day which should not be forgotten. It's unfortunate that so many have no idea, some people could care less for history. Which myself I find is a very important subject.

And I hear you with the commissions backup, I should do the ones I have without charge since I've been slacking so terribly on them. ^^;

Yeah, it is quite sad that so many are either unaware or apathetic :<

Nor do they realize just as many soldiers died just in one day, than as many soldiers died in 12 years in Afghanistan and Iraq. >_>
