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've said too many times before that i quit AVS and then come back, but i've been off from DA for 10 weeks, last preset i made was 6 months ago. I leave you to make your own conclusion whether or not AVS intrests me anymore.

And for crying out loud, stop asking me to check out your stuff, im not some god who's word is final.

Hello,
Is there a place on DA where new AVSers can say hello, introduce their work to the community and ask for opinions/help without being reamed out and mocked

Goodbye.

Don't know if there is one, but my personal page surely ain't the place for it. Anyhow, begging for people to check your stuff out is more sure to drive people away than get them watch your work. Good quality work speaks for itself, you don't need to advertise it.

There isn't a place in DA, but you can always check the winamp forums and seek out the AVS section there, plenty of info there if you just do your research well.

Id say its easy for you to say good work speaks for itself, because you have so many listeners. For new artists, relying on word of mouth doesnt work.

"There isn't a place in DA" would you agree or disagree then that there SHOULD be a place like that on DA? My whole problem and the reason why i was so happy to finally get to say hi and show stuff is that the winamp forum is ass. It wont let me pm OR post even though ive been registered for months and never have made one single post. From what ive seen of DA so far its a much nicer way to show stuff too, right? Why dont you (or someone of your choosing if playing WOW is too much fun) make that place here, and mention that in your comment, instead of 'i quit leave me alone'.

You seem to completely forget that i was once a newbie too in the exact same position as you are now. What did i do? Simple, i just kept posting presets, working hard to get better and commented a lot of other peoples work and perhaps they returned the favor. What i did not do was whine and bitch at how bad the situation is in here or in winamp forums, there is nothing we as artists can really do about it. Sure you can make proposals to the staff in both places, but i personally have never tried that and don't believe they listen much anyway.

Gaining reputation is hard work, you can't expect that posting somewhere would get you instant recognition you have to work for it and just keep doing what you love, it will come someday if you like AVS so much as to do it for years like i have.

And im no staff member, i can't do anything, im just avs artist like everyone else here.
blackmage2006's avatar
Of course you're not, what i meant was something unofficial, someone create a "public" profile on DA where AVSers can introduce themselves, declare work done, request comments/help, and whine about the winamp forums, so that guys like you dont have to listen to it anymore, unless they want to.

A account full of spam, hey what a great idea! :roll:
Seriously nobody would check that kind of a page.

Just do it the "old" way, comment other people's work, help them out and in turn they will return the favor to you.

See that number up there on my page?
1,937 Deviation Comments
It doesn't mean i've received that many comments, it means i have wrote that many comments while i've been to deviantart, around 99% of them for other AVS artists. That is why people know me, they know me from my comments i've given to them.

you should link to that like yathoso does, he's right, it is hard to find. A shoutbox like he uses might make 'spam' less annoying to you.
