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.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to write a quick note welcoming everyone to the group and thanking you all!

Since the group has just been created chances are there are still a lot of changes that will take place in the future. For instance, I wanted to keep things pretty simple and straight-forward when I started it so the folders are fairly broad and basic. Chances are, as the gallery fills up I'm going to be creating more folders that are more area-specific.

We're happy to hear any ideas or suggestions anyone might have about folders, artwork, etc. So, don't hesitate to note us if there are any questions or suggestions you have or suggest and send-in artwork for the galleries!

We're looking forward to seeing how the group grows!

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!
