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.

A lot has changed since I first did this journal late last year. Back then, Daily Deviations were a more active segment at DA, indeed, my impetus for doing the first "If I Could DD" was because it was part of a project led by the Community Volunteers across the respective art categories. Members were more engaged with the creativity on daily display, and the artists awarded received considerably more new watchers, appreciation, and feedback for their achievements.

It’s a pity that Shakespeare’s Hamlet never saw Alfonso Elola’s work, for he may have found an answer to his existential quandary in the above excerpt. With its surreal style and skeletal imagery, Alfonso’s art seems to envisage the very dream that follows the act of throwing off our mortal coil; finding there not a continuation of the pain and misery we fear but a sensuous revelry that transcends our ordinary reality, and reveals an elemental truth within o

Full disclosure: I'm prone, highly prone, to gushing about ProjectOsxar's art. In my defence, consider the paintings themselves, done in an impressionist style that entices the viewer into the scene, and suggest their mysteries in a seductive array of potent colours and loose forms. Oscar's work spikes an avid wanderlust, exploring the boundaries between a mystical past and a cryptic future to create images that feel distinctly of the here and now in their artistic value. Watching the timelapse video posted in this interview will give you a deeper appreciation for how the magic happens out of the seeming mayhem, as each brushstroke is applied in an unpredictable act of discovery and sensory stimulation.

My deviantART StoryIt all started a few years ago, with a single piece of art.More Like This
I can remember having seen digital art before, but it never really impacted me. The fact that it wasn't real, on paper, and I couldn't touch it, made it somehow distant to me. Yet, for whatever reason, this piece was different to me. I can still remember staring at it from the screen of my computer, not being able to grasp how someone was able to make art that flawless, pretty and beautiful. And how a person was able to express that much emotion with just a few brush strokes. Call me stupid, or naive. But I just couldn't "get" it.
I think it was that piece of art that gave me a reason to try. Or more, a direction that I wanted to go in.
Before that time I was like a clueless wanderer. I've been writing a story for years. But I was basically lost in a maze of what I wanted or what I could do when it came to drawing stuff. My lack of skill and fear of failure g

It's about time for an official announcement, eh? I'm sure many have noticed she hasn't been around in a while. Well, many things have happened in this year-ish time, and Amy has decided to move on to professional work. I do not know if she will return, but I will say that it's very unlikely. Edit: Just so it's clear, Amy now has a job in web design, so making websites and whatnot. She doesn't do games professionally, but the skills she learned in Flash did transfer to doing web stuff!
And yes, I know it's crappy that I'm announcing this. However, Amy has always been cautious to say what is happening straight out. I want fans to know the situation and am comfortable doing so.

April Contest Theme: Bunny
Easter is already behind us, but why not do an "after Easter" challenge? Around easter you mainly see bunny figures, photos and lots of other bunny related stuff, which is the inspiration for this contest.
Draw a picture with an OC and a bunny, your OC in a bunny costume or with an object that's a bunny!
Show your easter feelings!
However, you also may draw a general picture that relates to our theme. Please be aware in case you are drawing a bunny alone, it is not easy to see if it is Anime and Manga or not. To make it easier in the judgement phase I suggest to add characters on the drawing or use the typical fake screenshot style.
Please be aware that we do not accept Anthro or Playboy art works.

The new Watch Recommendations will display occasionally in your watch, suggesting deviants you might be interested in following. Deviants who appear as recommendations include people who have proven to be friendly and engaging in the community, as well as deviants who have reached a standard of artistic excellence.

Anecdotes and memories may pop up here and there.

I've heard of that, but I would never have honestly believed it was a thing if I hadn't seen it. Crazy. Not my teeny little baby anymore, and so much more alert and aware of her surroundings. Starting to grab stuff! And thinks she can walk lol. She likes for us to stand her up while she stamps her feet or tries to take steps and wobble herself various directions. I'm definitely bummed that I'm back to work now because I get so much less time with her, but it's awesome to come home to her every day. The husband is definitely adjusting well to being a stay-at-home dad, and he's just so great with her.More Like This

When you want so much to take part in it.
Why you are always just “average” enough
To never make a lasting impression.
How is one supposed to be
LoveWe say we love flowersMore Like This
And their sweet aroma
Yet we can spend hours
Just picking them up
We ask for their thoughts
As we pick at their petals
About if he loves me
Or he loves me not
And yet we still wonder
Why nobody trusts
When "I love you" is muttered
But have we forgot?
We kill what we love.
