I joined it for fun. And then it became a cool way to chat to friends and find out about others. But lately, I've also found it to be a usefull way to get a bit of cash (through commissions) and also to meet other South african artists who're in the industry and just connect with them a bit.
Well, i think DA is all that you askin! But for me still being for fun, i started to do comissions i dont know how it will be now, but if it works i will take it seriously... ^^ But for m DA is specially a good place to find people who likes art and made friendship with guys aorund the world... o/
