DeviantART is a website that allows you to create your own free art gallery, communicate with other artists and join art groups about topics that you enjoy. The website uses its own shorthand code to allow you to link to a group's main page while automatically using the group's icon. You do not need to know the group page's URL or use any sort of HTML code to create this link.
