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

I hate to bring my personal drama online but... Well, I've applied for 3-5 jobs a day since October, have had a dozen interviews now, each and everyone of them was thrilled with my skill set and very happy with my experience. Yet I still do not have a job, follow ups always find them having found a person more suited for a job that I am perfectly suited for or they are still looking for funding to bring on another person (why the hell post the job in the first place) or just straight up no reply... Unemployment ran out last month and savings is gone. IRS said they will not be sending out refunds until next week even though we filed in February. So I can say I am not doing so well on any front. Never gone this long without a job and it is starting to really hurt. Car will probably be repo'd soon, and I am at rock bottom here. So in short I need a fill a few commission slots while I throw away my career and apply at the post office. I mean who needs a decade of experience, amazing referrals, and a literal endless pool of talent... Really frustrated right now.

Hey, sorry I'm late, kinda been ignoring my DA, if you're still not dead, exactly how much would you say you need? I don't make too much, but I live in a barracks and don't really have too many bills, and I enjoy the hell out of your comics, so I figure I can at least help a bit. If you can, message me

Hey, I've been enjoying your comic for awhile now and hope things get better. Best regards from the cold Canadian north TOC!

Aw, TOC, this sucks. All the huggles and positive thoughts from Denmark I can possibly send. However, being in the limbo of unimployment myself, and with a wedding coming up I can't afford any commissions this time round. If/when I find a job, I will keep this in mind though!
