Fella's ArtFest Winners: March 2015

Fri Mar 27, 2015, 4:00 PM

Welcome to Fella's ArtFest!

Fella's ArtFest is a monthly contest in which the DeviantArt community can display its love and appreciation for art and all its forms.
Each month's ArtFest has a particular theme! To participate, create an original piece of art (all media are accepted) and submit it to DeviantArt as a deviation! From there, simply submit your deviation to fella's very own gallery into this month's ArtFest gallery folder.

:fella: Entries

The theme for March's ArtFest was gowns
The entries are below! :la:
Gown of TimeLong ago when her gown was new,
Earth showed it off the universe through.
The blue of her skin offset by bright green –
She was the envy of the galactic scene.
Her flowing green skirt was peppered with flowers,
Each one she’d cultivated for many hours.
About perceptions she cared not a whit,
Leaving her time to crochet or knit
The varied purple peaks that dotted the land,
Having room for some on the glove covering her hand.
Elated at how well her dress was received,
Effulgent rays from without and within she weaved.
Azure skin glowed brightly from dusk ‘til dawn,
Radiantly beaming while over her gown they did fawn.
Time passed ever slowly, its beauty did dim,
Her chances of getting a new dress grew grim.
But she refused to give up, and returned to her craft,
Even though at her first efforts others only laughed.
Fibers stretched taut as she sewed a zigzag seam,
Often wiping her brow as she worked for her dream.
Resplendent she’d be, in a spiffy new skirt –
The DressThe Dress
Tiny flowers in whorls and knots
Embroidered within the beads and finery.
Sleeves and neckline adorned with swirls and whirls.
Mother of pearl, that’s what they were.
Buttons of mother’s pearl
Stitched synchronously side-by-side
Upon the beaded bodice of the gown.

:fella: Winners

:star: First Place goes to RogueMudblood who will receive a 6-Month Premium Membership to DeviantArt!

:fella: See you all for next month's ArtFest! :wave:

wintercool612 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
You could always try eBay or something like that?
MiloticScale Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They are no longer available; the deviantGEAR and deviantWEAR stores have closed permanently.
PrettyWitchDoremi Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aww. Alrighty.

But am I allowed to ask why it closed down?? O-o
cinyu Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Unfortunately, I see no reasons announced. :(

Here is their last journal:
Fond Memories: The deviantART Gear Store is Closed
MiloticScale Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I don't believe that DA staff ever announced the reason(s). :o
DarkACGuy Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
I guess DA is gonna drop Fella ever since their new switch. They probably think that they're so pretentious and don't have time for something as trivial as a mascot.

read the article again.

they said that they will NEVER change fella.

Hi! I asked the same question to DeviantArt HQ group and heidi, but no one replied :( Isn't DeviantArt going to plan something special for Halloween? Last year there was the Mystery Murder challenge with the fairytale characters which I enjoyed very much, so I was looking forward for something similar this year, but so far......nothing. Should I assume there will be nothing for Halloween?? :( :( :( 
cinyu Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hey! On Halloween there were chat and forum events hosted by Community Volunteers: Click here for schedule
We also have one contest hosted by CVs that's Halloween related: Honey, We're Getting a Monster
