Group rules

:bulletblue: Rules considering art submissions

● Art should be, in any way, related to history, but the art can be of any form of art. If we see no relation to history whatsoever, your deviation will be deleted from our gallery.
● Please limit the amount of 'historic' (manga) OC's to, preferably, none at all.
● Members should put their art submission in the right gallery folder.
● Members should not submit more than 7 deviations a week.

Please submit to the right folder! If you don't know which folder fits, simply ask our staff.

:bulletblue: Rules considering favourites

● Every member can submit 3 favourites per day to our club, as long as the favourites are in any way related to history.


:bulletred: Featured: you are not allowed to submit to this folder. It is only for works that the admins decide to show on the front page.

:bulletgreen: Historic Places and Buildings: anything that is a real historical site. E.g. castles, old houses, monuments, forts, ect. NO STATUES OF HERE, please! They belong either to the Historic People folder or (if they don't show actual people) to Historic Objects or Religion, Mythology and Legends.

:bulletgreen: Historic Scenes: a scene is a group of people doing something historical. For example battle scenes, feasts or weddings.

:bulletgreen: Historic People: this folder is for people who really lived, and are known for something. If it is a picture of a soldier, it goes to Historic Costumes. If it is, let's say, a general, it goes here. Other examples: presidents, kings/queens, scientists, politicians, philosophers, artists, inventors and so on.
NO ORIGINAL CHARACTERS HERE, PLEASE! And please, put the person's name in the title or into the description!

:bulletgreen: Historic Costumes: the focus is on the clothing. (Casual) people wearing clothes of a specific era, traditional cuts, handmade costumes, photos of re-enactors. This is also the place for "normal" people in history, who are not known for anything in specific.

:bulletgreen: Historic Objects and Extinct Animals: anything that is an object goes here. Examples: a pipe, cannon, guns, clocks, vehicles, cutlery, other weaponry, coins, armory, tools, relicts ect. Please, only submit works about animals which have actually existed and are now extinct.

:bulletgreen: Historic Maps, Flags and Stamps: all kinds of mapping and carthography, including fictional ("alternative") maps, stamps, coats of arms and country balls.

:bulletgreen: Historic Stock Images: stock/references that have some historical content.

:bulletgreen: Historic Writings and Videos: any literature, e.g. poems, one shots, stories, lyrics, music notes, comics, graphic novels... Yes, comics! And any writings about or including videos (Youtube embeds etc.).

:bulletgreen: Religion, Mythology and Legends: all religious, mythological or fabulous figures, objects and events.

:bulletred: Admin Folder: for Co-founder and Founder Art only.

Thank you for following these rules and enjoy yourselves at the group!

Hi folks & fellas,

this is just a quick notice to inform you about a new folder.

Our good old Historic Places and Buildings folder has reached its limit (5,000 deviations).
Thanks to everyone who submitted to this gallery. We really have a big collection of history-related objects now. =)

I've just created a new folder, Historic Places and Buildings 2 for you. The ability to submit this one should be given to members and staff now.
Please tell me, if something doesn't work.

Have a great day and happy Samhain/Halloween/whateveryoucelebratetomorrow!

I'd like to ask, what do you have against manga-style OCs in historic fashion? 😕 (this likely extends to historical figures in manga style as well, right?) A friend of mine was thinking of joining but is now not so sure after reading that...
jhilker2 Featured By Owner May 8, 2020  Student Interface Designer
hey there,

is joining even if we don't really make art allowed? I've never been good at it to be honest, but I am working on an alternate history/low fantasy setting, and I think I could use a lot of this stuff as inspiration

Thanks a bunch for the plug! =] Glad you liked the painting!

Would a Norwegian bunad be considered historical? I believe they are modern folk costumes inspired by historical clothing . . .
Zouberi Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2019   Photographer
I'm no expert, but I think you're right, that they are kinda 'modern'. Afaik they're dating back to early 20th century nationalism, but well, that's pretty historic isn't it?
If you have bunad works to show us, feel free to submit them to our gallery! And Historic Costumes would be totally fine. :)

Thank you!
