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
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 FEATURE
I will do a feature, showing you some visions of the world:
2014 Summer Challenge - The GameThe Soccer-Worldcup is over and as well our challenge.

Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc (1412—1431) is the ultimate iconic rebellious teenager. In nineteen years she lived a fuller and more exciting life, effecting the future histories of the two most powerful nations on Earth, than most can even dream of, and then died a martyr’s death for her cause and beliefs, for which she was declared a saint 500 years later. Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

Whether you were Beowulf, Ulysses or Flash Gordon, you simply accepted that by birth or circumstances beyond your control, you were a special and exemplary specimen of humankind elevated above normal commoners.

Collection: Hammer Time!
There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique
Collection: The Leonids
The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It begins in mere weeks from now: The countdown to the first of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, the first of a new trilogy for a new generation. The first 1 minute trailer, a mostly wordless montage of series’ heroes, will debut attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or on Disney-owned ABC Television. American culture stirs in its sleep.
