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 September's ArtFest was leaves.
The entries are below! :la:
bright by CapnSkusting Leaf Fairy by puzzledpixel Leaves [AF: Sep15] by AlexanderPaupoff Like Leaves in the WindWhen leaves rustle in the evening sun
And golden light spreads across the horizon,
Delight grows in my heart,
Arisen from eternity.
Flowers, wind and sunshine
Sing this song,
That is mine but not my own,
Because everything results in itself.
 Eternity kisses the moment,
Nobody is here any longer.
From firmament to firmament,
Love has its realm.  
Being weightless,
Rising above the huge world,
Soaring in the air, in the wind so gently
Until I will fall again.
Flying up to the sky,
Passing the clouds.
Finally, conquering the dreary gravity -
Light, easy, satisfied with peace … und free.
Greedy, filled with false pride,
As the worlds are subject to us.
How foolish we are –
Because only birds can fly
And leaves in the wind.
They fell like leaves in Autumn;
Those men and women up high in the towers
Rained down their colours upon the ground:
But when they hit they were always red.
Fire crackled like snapping twigs
And bones crackled like fire.
They fell like leaves in Autumn;
Those men and women up high in the towers
Landed like sizzling spits of oil upon the tarmac:
Splattering people with their people parts.
Branches imploding in a domino swirl
And pained panes painting the paving.
They fell like leaves in Autumn;
Those men and women up high in the towers
Fell in twirling swirling tipsytopoverbottom spirals:
Pretty to look at right up until the end.

:fella: Winners

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

You could always try eBay or something like that?

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.
KuletXCore Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2014
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
