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!

Hey guys! So recently I was asked by Hello-SouthAfrica on deviantart to do an interview with them, so if you guys are interested at all in myself, and my art philosophies you can check it all out here... news.deviantart.com/article/75…

Image Description

I know its not really news anymore, but for those who dont know, Im glad to say that I made it into one of Udons tribute art books once again. This time it was with a Felicia entry for their Darkstalkers tribute art book. I'll post her on deviant as soon as the book has been launched at the San Diego Comicon in late July '09. Looks like this is gana be one hell of a tribute art book with all the talent its loaded with... I was surprised I even got in!

Image Description

Otherwise Im still working on various other personal artwork in between all my other work that seems to almost always be storyboarding work. I just hope to finish the artwork I am still yet to name... (hmm, ill call her the 'surfer girl' for now) before the end of 2009... Will post others before it as I go a long though.

Before I get going, I just want to once again thank you all for your awesome support! I seriously appreciate it every message, comment, watch and fav!

Anyway, till next time guys =)
Take care!

- Warren

[link] - Those guys have a contract with Capcom, so theyve already put together a Street Fighter tribute art book for its 20th anniversary, and now theres a Darkstalkers 15th anniversary tribute art book. Its pretty much art contests, and the winning entries get featured in a tribute art book.
