    Such a vast community as deviantART always strives to preserve grief - and provide hope - whenever a disaster strikes humankind.

    As it is almost a decade since 9/11 tragedy, this thread will begin with a showcase of dignifying remebrance art in the honour of 9/11 victims and their motherland:

    ^ ~uteria4ever provides more individual insight, depicting a future martyr and a future life saver together, before the nightmare took hold.

    [​IMG]
    ^very touching, comprehensive and retrospective tribute on ~Oskaija's behalf.

    [​IMG]
    ^Hetalia quite often provides a conduit for those seeking to immortalize world changing events, as seen on the example of ~Nuri-ko-tan's piece.

    The first one contained EDF's own workshop that was working towards remembrance - cluttering it with existent and upcoming images would slow their progress. Besides, I was too hasty and made it after a single opinion has been given.

    I must admit that finding WTC tribute art on deviantART is surprisingly hard, as seemingly half of it is MS-paint intentional mockery/soapbox speech triggers/et caetera, the rest being chiefly photos. At the same time recent Japanese chain of disasters caused sudden spike in artistic pursuits.

    Case of 'make-a-point' - oriented submission:

    Latuff's own work doesn't even deserve to be mentioned, yet for the sake of the context...

    Fanart-Central one-ups deviantART on that field, if this cheers you up:

    [​IMG]<as a matter of fact, deviantART itself lacks any 9/11+Sonic art, much to my surprise.

    ^one tear contains towers already engulfed in smoke, other - a plane approaching.

    I tried to seek similar tribute art within Sheezyart galleries, yet their abominable artwork browser appears to be completely useless.

    Back to deviantART we go!

    Wait what? You mean if I go out and kill someone and claim they were drawing derogatory art of 9/11 I won't be judged? That's what I got from that last post.

    Dragonspetz loved it so much he had to post twice. Nice

    Wasn't original WTC designed as two standalone towers for the same reason, among others? NY already had a 'misdirected flight crashes into building' scenario before the BIG one.

    Speaking of planning. . .

    Is there official 9/11 flowchart for tribute images? Most of drawings consist of seemingly identical set:

    I think you'd go well with

    1) Star spangled banner
    2) towers
    3) eagle
    4) tears
    5) NEVER FORGET
    6) OC giving a salute

    done

    Full decade has passed since THE 9/11, deviantART slowly begins to craft belated remembrance art.

    At first I thought that the following image was a troll-art, given the description which seemingly flows into mockery:

    I still have some doubts.
