We all know Fella and dA wouldn't be the same without him anymore.
But did you ever wonder who he really is? Where does he come from? Why is he alone?
He is always at our side, lurking here and there, making your dA experience a little brighter and introducing you to new things all the time.
Your mission is to show us the world of Fella.
How does he live? Does he have pets? Is he the only one or are there other 'creatures' like him? Does he come from a distant planet? Is he the result of an experiment?
What does he eat? Or maybe he doesn't need to eat at all?
What is he doing in his freetime? Does he like to cook or read a good book? Or is he more of an adventurer, exploring the world outside?
Below you can see a few artworks, that already show Fella working for dA or in random situations. Maybe these inspire you to come up with other details of his life.

If you're reading this it means you're alive, and if you're alive you have to eat. Eating is more than just filling your stomach with food, the experience starts from the moment you step in the kitchen and plan your next master piece -and yes, food is art! Preparing food is one of the most common crafts, so we want you to see it as an opportunity to be artistic. And hopefully, you'll see this as an opportunity to experience the world of the Artisan Crafts.
We want you to bake, cook, prepare, mix, or toss whatever inspires you. No limits: salads, cakes, sandwiches, smoothies, candy, cocktails... if it's humanly possible to eat it, we want to see it! Try to get a bit creative with the ingredients and the presentation, try to think of your plate as a blank canvas and food as your medium. Before you eat it all, take a photo and upload it to DA. And have fun!

Palacio de la Muerte is a haunted house and grounds that lies just outside the bounds of your city. Nearby residents have reported hearing strange noises and seeing unnatural lights hovering over the area. And, the neighborhood has been abuzz about a couple of university students who entered the premises the previous Halloween and were never seen again. The thought of it sends chills down your spine.
Nevertheless, you are brave, you are ready, and you have nothing to lose. Grab your flashlight, and let's go!

"When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today."
- Chinese proverb
2014: This is the 3rd year of the project. There are many people supporting it, featuring it in their journal and offering art. BUT... There have been NO trees planted for it in the last year (I don't count mine). So, instead of talking about it, how about getting up and actually planting a tree, if you are able to? There is a lot of wonderful art waiting for you as a reward!
Trees are important, valuable and necessary to our very existence. It's not too hard to believe that, without trees we humans would not exist on this beautiful planet. Trees are the largest and longest living organisms on earth. To grow tall the tree has become a miracle of engineering and a complex chemical factory. It is able to take water and

The power of portraits: Mesmerizing eyesAs my gallery shows, I'm obsessed with portraiture, so I've decided to dedicate a serie of journals to talented dA artists, who created strong and lasting artworks. Portraits are the shortest way to tell stories with constantly staring eyes. Each time you look at the eyes, another story finds.More Like This
Mesmerizing eyes by Derek Jones
From the first moment I've felt mesmerized by these ethereal woman portraits, because they have soul.
Derek Jones's genius is in the special atmosphere created by the harmony of soft colors, lights and textures which emphasize the feminine tenderness and vulnerability. His sincere and prudent figures are full of life by those vivid eyes.
A wonderful combination of charcoal, watercolour and pastel creates this graceful and delicate ambience of his portraits.

Birthday Fun...Today was Wills birthday... I hope I made it special for him.More Like This
This morning after I dropped off the kids I brought him some coffee... and one of his birthday gifts. It was just a silly one that I was going to give him later but I knew he needed it bad... silly as it was. He was very excited about it.
It was super cute to see him. I love seeing him in the morning.
Maybe that is a little selfish of me. If I get to see him in the morning it means he doesn't have to work that day because the weather is bad. Good for me... but bad for him as he has had off all week and wont be getting paid for it. I worry about him and I know not working for a whole week is going to be super hard on him.
But he was in good spirits when I was there. I walked in and the first thing he did was look at me and say "wow... you look beautiful today." It made me blush... he has never said that to me before. It was nice.

My username is long as fuck, but people call me either Nurul, Zen, or Xzen. There's also Mango but I won't explain how I got that nickname. I go by a different name outside of dA because I'm Batman.
2. Do you like being surrounded by many people?
Generally, no. Unless I know them well.
3. Do you think people in your real life consider you normal?
Lmao never. One of my friends used my name as a synonym for a word that meant weird so he could remember it better.
4. Do you think there are things that make you stand out from the normal?
Physically, kinda sorta but not really. It depends, I guess.

Witch Hunters in The Lost GirlJournal for my own reference. Feel free to ignore.More Like This
When I first wrote The Lost Girl (originally titled Cracked Mirror), the story was different. Emmy and Lev had a somewhat better relationship, Eustace wasn't a witch (and was much, much younger than Emmy), nobody gave a damn about half-bloods, Luce was too cool for everyone, witches had violet eyes, and Emmy's coven wasn't as messed up. And the antagonists were different. In fact, Will was meant to be the main villain. But now that I've made a whole bunch of changes, the story's, well, changed. Duh.
One notable thing about the oldest version of the story was the lack of witch hunters. Actually, the existence of witch hunters in the story was a relatively new addition. In fact, the first witch hunter to be introduced was Yong Minho. And he existed around last May. So, yes. Brand new, pretty much. So it goes without saying that these ideas aren't very fleshed out yet. I basically came up with wi

Few artists interact with me here on DA anymore and I rarely post new things here because I am so busy with my books.

Twisted World(Part 8) "Money is the root to evil."More Like This
"For countless eons, man has used money for selfish intentions. Gambling, porn, drunken bouts, war, and riches for untold reasons. I hath been seeing this for years. Even illegal narcotics that tend to defy what death really can do to people. The uses o' money can be put into an evil that others truly do not understand. If money today is being used as a blessing, I would hate to see what the future is for it. Including lottery tickets that are only paper, and, yet, they tend to cause riots that end with death. I would feel that it is a reason I stay away from such understandings. It is what causes the world today to be in such a beast, only, to turn and feed on its own flesh. Political corruption too, even though I am not into politics. Open the suit case, pay the individual to lie, cheat, and steal. Their mouths say one thing while their fingers say another.
