Fella's Dictionary - Help us Update ItIn 2010, fella released the first comprehensive dictionary for deviants. This dictionary helped with both terms that are unique to deviantART as well as acronyms that may not be found elsewhere. The dictionary has been published and featured on our front page for some time, but, it is missing a lot of items and also hasn't been updated since 2010.
As a result, I am excited to announce that over the next few weeks and months, a team of contributors will be creating a new dictionary that is more accessible, more comprehensive, and created by you.
fella invites you to help with this process. We have created a very easy to use form for submission of acronyms and terms that you want to see defined. Every item tha
Film + Animation Revamps Begin!Hello Deviants,
kingmancheng and TimberClipse will be working on a number of changes that will impact filmmakers and animators on deviantART. We hope to bring the film & animation experience to a new level that is more accessible and easier to jump into so that we do not miss out on incredible deviant-created films.
We are always open to new suggestions, and if you have any ideas, we would love to hear them. Feel free to comment below or drop us a note! We currently have a few projects in process, and we would certainly love thoughts and suggestions as to what you'd like to see there.
Updated film & animation gallery application.Simplified application process.Updates to the Film & Animation FAQs.
We also would love to hear what you'd like to see with the dedicated film & animation group deviantartfilm, which both TimberClipse and kingmancheng administrate. What would you like to see happen? Change? Let us know!
Thanks so much for your s
Winners of Team dArt Showdown! - Generous Winners
I received this note today:
"First of all, thank you very much for organizing the contest! It was amazing to find out we won! Within our team, we agreed that the 2nd team, DieWildPixieDragon, deserves a prize as well, not only for getting so far in the contest but also for their team spirit. We would like to give 1000 points from our prize to each member of that team. I guess it would be easier if you do that when you are sending the points. Can you please send 1000 points to each of them, and divide the rest between us? "
So both finalists will receive prizes!
After a long wait for all the games... We have our winning team!

A Shout Out To 3 Fantastic Deviants ($ and =)Hello Everyone...
So, I am sure that I will get some crap for putting this out there, but I really feel someone needs to say it...
There has been some amazing deviants that have really stepped forward since 2012 began. These deviants are people who have joined for fun, work for deviantART or have volunteered. All of them, have done an outstanding job this year and I wanted to take a few minutes and thank them for their work.
Dan has been tirelessly reading through thousands of comments on site updates and really working with the community this year. Last year the staff got a lot of badmouthing from deviants who thought they did not "care" about the community. This year, so many people have stepped up and made a difference. One of the staff that did this was danlev. He has really done an outstanding job and deserves some credit for the amount of time and effort he has put in.
ToxicAlice92 has gotten a lot of notice already and I can't get over it... H

The FanStachestic Contest at #fellaUPDATE: With only ten days left, we are still looking for submissions! One of our contributors has put together a piece that will hopefully inspire you all as well! Good luck!
It's Movemeber and deviantART is in support of the movement once again. Here at fella, we'd like to support Movember as well.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the broken relationships between men and their razors. Donning their moustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health - specifically prostate cancer.
This year, we want you to make Fella classy. Give him a mustache, or portray Movember and fella together. And the only important thing to remember? Make it look classy! Then submit it to our Movember 2013 Gallery by November 30, 2013 at 11:59:59pm PDT
May the Fourth Be With You - FeatureToday is May the 4th, and all I have to say is May The Fourth Be With You!
Being Devious - ` for one year - A Feature!I was reminded today (thank you Allyntu) that May 1, 2013 marks the anniversary of my deviousness award!
It seems incredible that it has been a year since that absolutely amazing day, but since then so much has happened both on dA and in my life.
When I received the award, I was the youngest recipient to have ever received it. Since then, my close friend and amazing deviant, winehaus has beaten me!
I would just like to take a moment and thank you all for being absolutely amazing deviants. My time on dA is incredible, and I look forward to a future continuing to be incredibly active here.
I wish to keep this short and sweet, but, wanted to include some of my favorite deviations from the last year.

We're looking for game players to come and join in our deviantART Birthday Event! In just a short while 3wyl and myself are hosting an interpretation of a British game show called Pointless. The idea of the game is that you have to guess the least popular answer to a multiple answers question. You will be awarded points accordingly, those with the most points will win - but you will have used pointless answers to get there!
We'll have pre-judged the least popular and most popular answers by asking a panel of CVs beforehand for their responses. Want an example?
Name a Film Starring Tom Cruise
Okay so Mission Impossible is a really high answer and if you said that one, you'd get lots of points. Which isn't good! If you said Rain Man - you'd possibly be getting less points. But if you said something like Endless Love or Taps, then you'd be hitting on an answer tha

Culinary Creations: Still Life Photography Contest
Still Life Food Photography Contest
Still life photography usually involves a set up - planning and careful execution of a shot. Food photography in particular takes a lot of preparation and the time to make a dish or an item of food aesthetically pleasing. So I thought it was about time we had a contest involving all elements! Your challenge is to create a brand shiny new Still Life Photography piece that features Food. Now the catch is you must be creative with the food. Entries will be considered carefully and if you are taking photos of food that someone else has made, then you need to step up the mark and make it as unique as possible. If you made the creation yourself, give us a brief idea in the description of how. Utilize the descriptions of your artwork to tell us about your photography!
Start Date: Monday 14th May
End Date: Monday

Happy Birthday DeviantART! Welcome to Wonderland
I find myself delighted to lay my rather large eyes on you. A purrfectly delicious mystery awaits you. Won't you come this way?
I've been a bad kitty-- a very naughty, naughty feline, indeed. You see, today is Alice's Unbirthday, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland had planned to join her and the Mad Hatter for tea and cake. But, the Mad Hatter, being quite a bit off his rocker, is requiring that everyone wear a hat to the party. Anyone without a hat cannot attend.
Whoops! Mysteriously, *smile* all the hats in Wonderland have gone missing. What a shame, what a shame. Whatever shall we do?
I know what we shall do. You and I, stranger, we shall go to the party together. I hear the cake is delicious this year, and there will be plenty for us.
Except, wait! HA! You cannot!!! You have no hat, either! I suppose you'll have to stay here, too, then. Very well. Goodbye.
