Welcome to Echoes from the Past! We're a group for people who have a passion for history (as well as mythology) though anyone is more than welcome to join :) . Our rules are fairly few and straight forward at the moment but please don't hesitate to ask a question if something confuses you or if something is not listed that you'd like to know about!


-Be nice and show respect to others.

-Submissions must be history related and must be your own work.

-As to quality, we would like everyone with a love of history to express it and we don't care what skill level you are or what paper the drawing is on. We do, however, care about presentation and would like that you present your artwork the best that you can. This means clean, visible lines or as clean as you can get them.

-Mature Content is allowed as long as it is respectful and with purpose. Admins will accept it on a case-by-case basis.

-OCs are allowed so long as they are based in a historical setting and follow the rules above.

-Absolutely NO hate art.

These rules may change or be added to in the future.

I'm sure this comes as no surprise to anyone whose still actively watching and submitting to this group, but I no longer have the time or stamina to dedicate to this group. I've already sent the request to close the group to the DA powers that be and haven't heard back yet.
Thank you to everybody whose participated and allowed their wonderful art to be displayed in this group. I'm sorry that I poorly upheld my own duties.

I am suddenly not allowed to submit to this group. Did something happen by accident or is there a reason for this that I am unaware of?

Submissions are timing out before being accepted or rejected

I submit pictures to this Group from time to time.  Often these submissions expire before a decision is made.  I know that running a Group is time-consuming (I am a moderator on several Groups myself) but the current situation is unfair on members.  Please extend the period allowed before submissions expire, you can configure a time up to one month.

Best wishes, Bob.

Hello, dear~

I'd just like to mention, for any admin unlucky enough to get me, some things about my story so as to clear up confusion. First of all I'd like to make known that my story (Tales of New Eden, or ToNE, which you may see in the titles), is a story that I categorise as "historical fantasy", but according the the criteria listed on your "history inspired" folder, I don't think it would belong there. All of my characters actually come from the real world, but are physically merged with plants/flowers in a magical way. The story takes place in mostly the real world and sometimes and alternate dimension which is not in a particular nation. It's up to you how you categorise it; I just personally think that it isn't "fantasy" and more "mythological".

Thank you for reading; have a lovely day ^^ I love the idea of this group!
