Well, I was wondering what do you think of free-art-request. Is it beneficial for both the artist and the requesting person? Does it help for the communication? Is it making better artists? Do you have good or bad experience? I spent some time analyzing the possible reasons behind it - and made out my mind. I still want to hear others opinion about it, artists and others. I think this is quite a prominent section in our FA forum and there is always a lot of activity for such threads - but I didn't find any thread talking about it.
