My deviantART StoryYeah I know I'm late with this, but it's always good to say it.Happy Birthday dA!Here is the little story I thought of when I heard this years challenge was to write and show how we came to deviantArt.When I first saw deviantArt I was doing a research for a school project.At that time all knew about art was what I saw in school, and I didn't knew that a site like deviantArt was existing. When I found this site I was a totally newbie at the internet and I didn't really thought about what can happen if you get a member at any website. At first I wasn't really active, there has been more than one yearuntil I came to dA again. That was when I got active here and I started my dA-Life with looking for mainly fantasy-related pictures:Today my Fantasy-collection is huge and I'm even running a group (Fantasy-Characters) where the members can show their picture
Featuring our members_______________________________________________________It's time to feature you again. We found some really nice deviations for you, so take a look._______________________________________________________
Some changes and a Feature_________________________________Some News_________________________________Our group is really big and we get many submissions everyday. As you know we have some Rules which help us to choose the deviantions we include in our gallery. There are always some pictures which don't fit tinto our rules, but that's not a big problem for us. Anyway now we will make a few changes.From now on we will try to get a little stricter with these rules, but mainly we will have ONE new rule:Your pictures have to have a minimum size of 500px at the shorter side of your picture._________________________________A little Feature_________________________________All our members show us their best works, everyday by sumitting to our gallery, it's time to show these to you, too.
How an artist sees the worldWe all here on dA are artists. We show the world how we see the world by painting it with our words and pictures, or take a photo of the things we see.We all see different things in the world. Everything we do, shows another part of the world we live in or the world we dream of.We can show it here on deviantArt in groups and features.:iconthefavouriteshowcase: is having a project about features, called FEATURE FOR FEATUREI will do a feature, showing you some visions of the world:

Collection: The Steampunk MenagerieShare|ArchiveThe Steampunk MenagerieThe magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.
