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!

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 created this account on October 11th, 2007, when I was 16. Been half a decade. Doesn't even feel like it's been that long. I know I've improved astronomically as an artist and as a decent human being since then, but still...

Alas, I have nothing to show for it, today, or for anything, for that matter. Been in a rut lately. Can't get myself to sit down and put out a decent piece of work that I feel I can display here. Doesn't help that I bought Pokemon Black 2 the morning of launch, and have been playing it since, which is, quite inexcusably, my fault. Either way, I don't want to give out empty promises, so... I'll try. No guarantees, but I'll try.

Have some friends turning 21 today, in fact. Probably no festivities til the weekend, but it'll be fun either way.

well sorry you are feeling a little down, my suggestion is to relax, enjoy your pokemon, do what you like. If you need someone to chat with there are still a few of us on vent, though my pokemon expertise ended after Ruby Sapphire.
