DeviantArt has always been a place that judges you on what you do. Your age, where you come from or anything else doesn't really matter. Whether it's through the veil of privacy behind a username or the simple nature of these communities it's helped a lot of people express their creativity, share their ideas and grow far beyond their capabilities.
I'm forever thankful for the amazing people I've met on DeviantArt. The things we've been able to create together and all the reasons that led me to their corner of the inter-web.
