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

You know how you can be aware that you're dreaming?

Don't you hate when you're stuck in a nightmare and you're about to be eaten/killed/blended/blownup/tickled-to-death by a giant chihuahua and you're trying to will yourself awake but you can't quite do it?

I've been in the same nightmare for 3 months about!  I can't bring myself to draw anymore and I can't seem to form what I need to whenever I do get a pencil to paper.  I want to wake up!  Let the artist's block END!  Where is my inspiration?

Ahhh.  That felt good to get off my chest.  But honestly, though I sound melodramatic, I am speaking from my heart.  I hate not drawing/not being able to draw.  I've been "an artist" since I was five and now...  Now I'm slowly losing my drive to create.

.....Wake up!!!!!!

Ugh, thank goodness I got a comic job, because I wouldn't have drawn otherwise!

Find something you can get paid for!

You're Aren't the only one who's gone through this before, some it takes less time to get over, others suffer for longer. Speaking of myself, my artist's block lasted about 2 years or so. whenever I ended :iconcronos591: and until now.

I hope you find your muse though, I don't know how I found mine, but i'm sure you'll pull through.
