FellArt - A Feature of Fella Related Art [#12]Hello Deviants and Fellas Alike!
We are on our twelfth edition of the FellArt feature, a feature of Fella Related Art submitted on deviantART or to our own Fella Fan Art category!
We are happy to feature any Fella art whether it is new or old, seen or unseen, and from anyone on deviantART. We always encourage people to submit their fellArt to fella any time!
Hi guys! Foreveredshadowed here! I guess I should introduce myself a little before we get to the good stuff. My name is Mackenzie and I have been on deviantArt now for about 2 years. I love to draw, mainly cats and humanoid figures, but more recently, My Little Ponies. I also like graphic designing. I don't draw digitally very often, for I'm afraid I do no own a drawing tablet at the moment. I'm 14 and I'm in 8th grade.
Now onto the good stuff
I've been thinking and developing this for a couple of weeks, and I have decided that it is a good way for the community of deviantArt to interact. I call it Project HOPE (Helping Other People Everyday).
But what is Project HOPE? Project HOPE is an opportunity for all of deviantART's community to interact with each other. To participate, just find a Deviant that you think you can help. All you have to do is draw a picture for them, or get to know them better, or even a nice note can help. You never know what your kindness can

Curate an exhibition for #FellaWe at fella love to promote fabulous art and we know you do too, so here's your chance to share some truly inspirational work with thousands of deviants, bringing lots of exposure to talented artists.
It's not as simple as posting a bunch of thumbnails though - we want you to be as creative as the artists whose work you're shining a light on. For the chance to curate YOUR fella exhibition this summer, send us the following information:
We're not looking for simply photographs or pretty things. We want original concepts to match the original content that you'll be including in your exhibition. Think specific (eg jewellery inspired by the indigenous cultures of Africa) or educational (eg aviation through the ages), consider geography (eg lakes of America) or jobs (eg the world of professional make-up artistry), or even base your concept around the artists rather than the art itself (eg creations by art students or paintings by di

The Name GameThe Name Game
Pitfalls to Avoid and Tricks to Use while Naming People and Places
We've all been there. You're reading a pretty interesting piece of fantasy fiction, and a few paragraphs in you learn that the main villain's name is "Abraxas the Cruel, Lord of the Black Tower." You wince at the unoriginality, close the deviation, and move on to something more interesting. We've all been on the other side of things, too, with a detailed plot outline in hand, staring at a Word document that displays only a single line: "???? knew what he had to do--kill the president." We're sure that once we get that protagonist's name down, that perfect name, we'll be able to write the whole thing in one gush of brilliance, but all that's coming to mind are banal names like "John Everyman" or over-the-top ones like "Staff Sergeant Max Fightmaster".*

Literary Terminology GuideLit Basics Week
This will be a straightforward article that lists some basic literary terms (in alphabetical order) that can be found in, well, literary works. You could use some of these terms to write a spectacular poem or prose piece about cake.
