Kingdomhearts Club Rules

Please read the Group Rules before you submit!

:star:Members can submit 1 deviation a day and visitors once a week.To join our group please click on the button on the front page to enable more gallery priveleges!

:star:Only Kingdom Hearts related artwork will be allowed into the gallery.That’s pretty obvious. So have it related to KH in some way, whether it's a world or a crossover or what not. If it's just a Dragon Ball Z character, or a picture of Spongebob and Patrick dancing at a club, it will be denied!

:star:Please submit the artwork to the correct folder. It should be OBVIOUS where ALL your art pieces go. If it’s just Sora, into the Sora folder. If it’s just Axel, into the Axel folder. If it’s cosplay, into the cosplay folder, etc. If it looks like it doesn’t belong in any of the available folders, but is kingdom hearts related, then it belongs in Misc. Submissions into the wrong folder will be denied instantly without notice.

:star:Only original artwork will be allowed into the gallery. Don’t trace or copy or steal someone else's work then hope for it to be accepted. It will not...and if it is? It was probably and accident and you will be caught and reported for art theft. On that note, if it is your original piece, do NOT put the copyright Kingdom Hearts logo on it! We cannot accept those either, so if you decided to watermark your art with a KH logo, it will be denied! Stock images are allowed so long as you provide credit and a link back to the reference picture clearly in your description. We just don’t want to get into trouble, okay? If you have any questions regarding this term please feel free to inquire at the club via an Admin.

:star:You must adhere to deviantART's policies which includes tagging the art as containing adult material. That means if anyone's naked, put up a MATURE CONTENT Filter. It’s nice to have a warning for certain material such as gore, violence, nudity, or strong language. Some people in this group aren’t allowed or just don’t want to see it. Questions regarding this should be directed to the deviantART FAQs.

:star:Be respectful of your fellow artists' work. We have not had a problem with this in the past, but it is worth stating for reference. If you harass other members the issue will be investigated and the guilty party will have Group privileges revoked.

:star:No Renders are allowed! This means that no 3D downloaded models of Kingdom Hearts Characters will be accepted in any form in this club/group. They still belong to the property of Square Enix and Disney, and this also includes edited or fixed wallpapers and things of the like.

:star:kingdomhearts can and may make changes to these terms at any time with or without prior notice.

That being said we hope you will all be patient as changes are being made to make your experience more richer. We hope you all enjoy your new access and use it wisely. Thank you!

Hello my fellow Kingdom Hearts fans. Forgive my tardiness as the actual anniversary was the 28th but uhh . . . lets just say I've been busy hehe. . .

Anyway enough about that, I wanted to take this time to reflect on my absolute most favorite game series of all time. How I discovered it, and what it mean to me.

Back in 2002 I was a mere 8 years old. Recent events at the time, tragedies and deaths had shattered the young innocence I had carried most of my life. I was a bit sad as I attempted to find my way. I actually remember the very first commercial that aired on tv one day for Kingdom Hearts. And I remember very specifically thinking . . . . "What a stupid looking game" HAAAA XD oh how naive I was.

Well one day after me and my big brother scored well on recent tests, sometimes my mom to reward us would take us to rent video games at Blockbuster (I would appreciate it if the older people here explained to the young ones what Blockbuster was XD) I think at the time I wanted either Twisted Metal or GTA III but both were sold out at the time. The notice went out that the store was closing soon and I had to make a decision or leave empty handed. And then I spotted Kingdom Hearts. I remembered it from the stupid commercial but didn't see anything that quite caught my eye the same. With a heavy groan i picked up the case and handed it to my mom.

Its funny I went into that game very blind with not a clue what to expect. Me and my big brother took turns using his PS2 and when he was finished with his game he sat with me and watched as the opening credits and the catchy tunes of Simple and Clean happened. I met a boy named Sora and his 2 best friends Riku and Kairi. And played on a beautiful island as I learned the simple controls. But by the time The islands had been lost to darkness and the Royal Court Wizard and Captain of the Royal Knights went off in search of their missing King, i realized that me and my brothers eyes shone with such excitement. We had never been this hooked onto a new game this way (Well if u don't count Pokemon) 

I was quite the helpless child for I needed my brothers help to get me through many of the tougher bosses on my first play through. I got stuck on the Stealth Sneak, Cerberus, Sora's Shadow, and Riku Ooohhh man did I get stuck on Riku. But he was always there as passionate about the game as I was.

I have so many memories of that play through.

Getting to smack the crap out of Disney villains I had loathed for so long like Clayton, Jafar, and Captain Hook. Fighting alongside Tarzen, Aladdin, and Ariel. But nothing was quite like the first time I entered HalloweenTown

AT the time I had not seen the Nightmare Before Christmas, heck I hadn't even heard of it. So entering that world took my breathe away. It was so much fun to meet Jack Skellington and that final boss fight with Ooogie Boogie was such a blast! 

The interaction of Agrabah also made me so giddy. Protecting princess Jasmine and how Aladdin and Genie because such good friends with Sora, Donald, and Goofy. It was like a dream come true. 

The way my heart pulsed and pounded and how i shouted and screamed as my big brother fought the Ansem at The End of the World, I held the strategy guide in my hands reading off every detail and what to do since we were so desperate to save everyone. And once it was done, and we watched Sora and his friends chase Goofy off down an endless hill we were hooked. . . . forever more . . .

Playing through that game I realized I had recovered something I thought I'd lost, my hope, my ideals, my passion. It recovered them all. And is why 15 years later I take my time to write this to you.



So my friends, please tell me how u all discovered Kingdom Hearts, how it changed your life and how much u loved it and the memories u made while playing the first game. I think I'd like to do this with some of the other titles in the future as well in time :)

Until next time ;)
