"Hold your head up high for what you do" the elder bird said to the youngling, "but be careful. You should always remember your roots. No matter how far you've reached, we all had to start from the beginning. And that makes us equal."

Happy 9th birthday deviantART!!! :heart:
I've been supporting you for almost 5 years now, and (hopefully) many years to come.

To me deviantART is a place when you can learn all about art, whether you still need to learn to fly, or when you want to improve yourself. It makes you feel free like a bird. The sky's the limit!

:bulletblack: Elder artists show the younglings who follow us how it works by showing what they create, how they do it. And of course we drop little mistakes here and there like leaves, but you'll learn from them so you can improve yourself even more.

:bulletblack: The tree -with the conciously made 9-looking branch- shows the root of many aspiring artists. It has been there for 9 years. And secretly I hope this place will last forever.

"Root" explains what deviantART is all about. Let me explain...


We root for each other.
- Here at deviantART we cheer and encourage each other to explore the great and diverse world of art by commenting on each other's works, journals, notes, posts and of course by creating art by ourselves.

DeviantART takes root all over the world.
- People from all over this world have gathered at a single place to celebrate art. That's why I love deviantART so much.

Artists put down roots at deviantART.
- Because we feel that we belong in this place!

(The definition of root according to The Free Dictionary)

Ah, this is so neat!

Gotta admit, I like the tree in yours a little more than I do the one I have in my silly, little entry. Good luck in the contest.
