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 February's ArtFest was to create an original deviation for a loved one or a friend.
The entries are below! :la:
Some people say that they fell in love HEAD OVER HEELS, but something like that has never happened to me.
For me falling in love with you was much more like watching snow fall:
There is this first wonderful moment of shock and joy when one realises, yeah, snow is falling, it’s starting to snow, there are these little wonderful snowflakes whirling through the air. Slow, smooth and softly more and more fall, nearly unnoticed ‘till they cover the ground. And for a while everything is just bright white and beautiful...
But snow tends to melt away with time, and so did my love. And like the beginning it is a slow process, nearly untraceable, but you still noticed it.
Everything started to get drippy and wet, and the beautiful white snow turned brown and muddy until there was nothing left of its former glory.
But still, everything blue and everything water and everything winter will always remind me of you.
Poetic Letter #1312-2-15
To the one who first gave a feather...
Thinking back I can’t recall when we met or how.
Was it I who commented first on something of yours
Or did you comment on something of mine
And start the chain of comments that led to friendship.
I had that happen once, with someone in Wales,
Who became so dear to my heart and my lobe –
As we spelled it forevermore – and so instrumental in my growth
Over the years I knew her.
For she faded from friendship when hardships became too hard to outpour upon a page.
I could not reach her through my works,
She could not reach out through hers,
And now I only occasionally see her on facebook to exchange a ‘hi, hi, hello, bye.’
And then I found you the same way, you in ‘Mericaland
With the huge heart full of understanding and love for all,
Even me with my too-big bones and broken wisdom.
We commented, we connected, we shared.
You joined my main groups as an admin – someone I c

Hi there,

The monthly contest only runs from the 5th of each month until the 25th. It is currently the 29th, and the monthly ArtFest contest isn't happening right now. You will be able to participate again on July 5th until July 25th, and you must be a member of fella in order to submit your art to the contest. :) 

Have a good day!

I had submitted a piece, *nudges gently thumb to see if I did it right XD*  :thumb453146023:  this one not too long ago for the May competition and it was added to the list but now its not there. its post date is "Submitted on May 9". I'd really love it for this piece to be in the competition. Just would love to have some feedback. Thank you and hope you have a great evening.

I did this picture Pisces by SignHermitCrab for your "Shiny contest", but the "Fella's ArtFest - May 2014" folder is closed. Please could you tell me where I can submit my participation? Thank you.

Are you sure you went into the May folder and not just the ArtFest folder?  Also, are you submitting from your deviation page or going through the group gallery folders?
annewipf Featured By Owner May 12, 2014
I went to "Fella ArtFest" > "May 2014", but there is no link for submitting something :confused:
GrimFace242 Featured By Owner May 12, 2014   Writer
I just submitted and it seemed to go through on this end.  Do you have a message in your MC for the request?

Hello! :D I was wondering... Could I submit a piece of art that was created last week into the Fella's Artfest May?
MiloticScale Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hello there! :wave:

Each month's ArtFest has a binding rule that states entries must be created specifically for the ArtFest contest of that month--meaning its submission date must display a date after the 5th of that month.

Hope that helps!

There are rules. Tell these rule breakers that there are rules. There are several groups that do not belong here. They do not abide by the rules. Neither do some individual artists know that there are rules. Seriously the DA Mods need to police the site better.
