We had a wonderful discussion with anuxinamoon, one of the top Dota 2 workshop content creators. to learn more about the Dota 2 workshop and how it all works.

It's pretty fascinating to hear about how much work goes into a simple item that we pay just a few cents or dollars for. It was great to learn more about Valve's involvement with the creative process, how much money the artists make, and what sort of collaboration there is with pro players.

It was super cool to hear how Anuxinamoon and other artists worked with Dota 2 pros prior to them making big bucks, as a way to help them earn a living.

Big thanks to Anuxinamoon for talking with us!
