Recently I've looked at my profile and noticed that I've been a member on DA for 6 years. It's weird to think it's been that long, but I'm glad. I'm glad that I'm part of a community across the planet that loves art, in their own ways. Being able to access art from nearly every human culture has been really rewarding. It's doesn't just give us eye candy to nibble on, it nourishes us with food for thought. Every time I browse the submissions, I see skilled professional artists, and more importantly, the developing artists with amazing potential and an eagerness to learn. In a lot of ways, it's is like a school (a fun school that let's you also check nude pics during class
). Like a school, we are both eager for knowledge, and excited to teach others. And that's why I'm glad for a site like DA, it's helped teach me so much, not just about art, but about the people who make it.
