Hello, it's been forever. I've been posting up some draws every now and then, but to be honest I've been wondering "why DeviantArt?" for a while now. This was my first and longest standing art page (13 years!! holy crap) but nowadays there are so many others, all with their own niche audience or specialization, that I've lost sight of dA's merit. What defines this site/community? What aspect of "ART" does it do well? What is DeviantArt's identity? It's an honest question; I'm curious what you're here for.
My freelance illustration endeavor turned 1 year old this month, meaning I survived a year living 100% off of drawing things, and I'm really proud and thankful to have reached this milestone of sorts! Along the way there were all sorts of interesting challenges, and finding solutions to them has been formative beyond just figuring out how to make art work. It's taken me closer to figuring out who I am and how I want to live my life in general. This is really just a journal for me to reflect on that, but maybe it can be insightful to other artists freelancing or looking into that as well -- take from it what you will.
Let's start with a facts
Not really sure how any of this wowrks but I'M ON IT:

Question because apparently I'm really good at the internet: is it true that you need to download something to be able to post from your pc i.e. to post arts from file instead of taking an ugly screen pic? I got Gramblr for it now but not sure if the best choice because it only accepts JPGs and I save everything in PNG >_________<;;
Any other basics/instaquette I should know about?
Oke biiiiiii x
