Mon Apr 14, 2014, 9:34 AM
Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week. By featuring just a single deviant, I hope to give the deviant some exposure and bring a little beauty to your week.

Fella's Dictionary

Thu Apr 10, 2014, 8:08 AM


Hello deviants and welcome to Fella's Dictionary brought to you by fella!

Over the past month and a half, a number of our contributors have been hard at work creating a brand new, updated, and enhanced dictionary that will allow any deviant to find common and not-so-common definitions of words, terms and acronyms on deviantART. 

This dictionary has had a lot of sweat put into it. We encouraged deviants to contribute terms that they wanted to see defined. We then asked some of our contributors and deviantART Staff members to help bring together the final dictionary with as many definitions as possible. 

In the upcoming weeks, we will periodically share a fun or interesting definition from the dictionary and tell you even more about the term that we feature! 

So, go take a look at the dictionary, simply click the letters above or below this journal and you will be able to look through the definitions in that section. Each word has form of speech, pronunciation, definition, and more! So check it out and share it with your friends! 
Fella Loves You!

5 Years on deviantART

Wed Mar 26, 2014, 1:30 PM
Hello deviants!

Today marks my fifth year on deviantART. It has been quite a journey and I have so many people to thank! I have gone from a deviant with a starting passion in photography that was welcomed by 11thDimensionPhoto and not a thought about film, to where I am now, a director of photography who has worked on some 70 films and now a Community Volunteer of the film & animation galleries under the direction of the incredible Moonbeam13 and working with the fantastic kingmancheng.  Running fella and deviant365, two of deviantART's official groups which share a wide variety of content!

I am just...amazed! By deviantART. By progress. By... everyone that has been there for me. 

Universus by t1na

There are so many people that have made this journey incredible, and I really cannot name them all. I would love to, but there's just no way. :lol: 

Fella World: Free time is play time by Nesmaty
All of that said, I am not going anywhere. I am fairly certain that MiloticScale and winehaus (a.k.a. iChangeMyNameToMuch) would kill me if I tried to leave this place. 

Grumpy Cat Hand Art by KlairedeLys

I have a lot of ideas and hopes for the future and I hope that I will be able to bring a lot of them to life.

Thank you all for an amazing five years!

Hello Deviants!

Myself and kingmancheng have a lot of great news to report for the Film & Animation galleries. There have been a number of changes behind the scenes, and there will be more coming soon!

FAQ

We are excited to announce that for the first time in a long time, the film and animation frequently asked questions have all been reviewed and updated. We have tried to clarify a number of confusing points as well as update information that was out of date. 

You can check out the full FAQ here.

Film & Animation Applications

In addition to the FAQs, the application process has also been updated! The application is now clearer, and easier than before. We are also addressing the speed and way that applications are reviewed and hope to have some news there shortly. In the mean time, if you want to apply, take a look at how to do that!
FAQ #842: How do I become a submitting member of the film community?

Daily Deviations

We had a great February, with some incredible deviations featured! If you missed them, check out our roundup, we are really excited to see such great work on deviantART. 

In addition, a bit of a reminder: As Film & Animation Gallery CVs, we are unable to feature flash animations. Ensure that your DD suggestions have the top-level category of Film & Animation. 

To check this, you will see the category a deviation is submitted above the artist's comments section.

Deviant Involvement

We are also very excited that in the upcoming weeks and months we hope to bring a lot more deviant involvement into the community in many ways. We encourage you all to check out and keep in touch with the community through the group deviantartfilm

Have a fantastic March!

Week 9, 2014 at #deviant365

Mon Feb 24, 2014, 12:00 AM
Last week, we asked you to write an article about something that you are knowledgeable about on deviantART. 

We had only a couple of submissions, but I would like to congratulate flamewarflipsides on the article that they wrote. They won 100 points courtesy of MiloticScale

The wonderful Kaz-D recently posted an article about photography with smartphones. This was perfectly timed with this week's task. Most people now have some form of camera, whether that is a DSLR or a camera phone, this week, we invite you to take a photograph whether you're a professional or haven't ever taken a photo before, we want to see what you create!

There is no specified subject matter, so be creative, have fun! 

Three deviants that participate will be featured in next week's journal and on the front page of deviant365

Good luck and happy photographing! 

Bullet; Blue Take a photograph with any camera you have available to you and post it on deviantART. Then include the thumbnail or link in the comments of this article.
Bullet; Blue All entries must be submitted by Thursday, February 27th at 11:59:59pm  PDT.
Bullet; Blue Three winners will be featured in next week's journal and at deviant365
:bulletblue: Added 2/24/14 10:50am Please only 1 entry. Entries can be new or old, though new is preferred. 




In 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 that we receive will be reviewed and most likely included. Submit as many times as you want, every word you include will help the community!

Once we have collected responses both from members and contributors, we will create a new and 'upgraded' dictionary

We will also be publishing some of the more interesting terms in journals to keep everyone in the loop, so stay tuned! :la: Thanks so much for all of your help! 



Hello Everyone!

A couple days ago, I invited you to take a few minutes and introduce yourself and begin a conversation with me. Every comment I received I replied to and I encouraged deviants to talk to other deviants as well. This was a huge success, as over the course of just a couple of days the journal amassed nearly 400 comments and over 1000 views! 

As an incentive, I offered a prize of 636 points or a 3 month premium membership to someone who watched me, faved the journal and introduced themselves. I randomly selected a winner and would like to congratulate TheWritingDragon on being randomly selected! 

In addition, there were a number of pieces of art that I found over the last couple days from many deviants that commented, and I'd like to take a moment and showcase just a few of the works I saw :heart:

Hello Fellas!

We are on our twenty second 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! 





Hello Deviants!

I try to do this about once a year, to find out who is around and who is active. I am also really interested in meeting new deviants that I haven't talked to before. 

As a result, and with a little bit of an incentive for you, I present this watcher Meet N' Greet contest.  
To enter into the giveaway, please complete the following steps:
  • Add this journal to your favorites :+fav:
  • Watch me :+devwatch:
  • Comment below and introduce yourself, I will reply to every comment that I get. :typerhappy:
My hope is that through this I will (both) find out how many active watchers I have, but also get a chance to meet more of you, there's a lot of people who I don't know. 

You are of course welcome to comment with as little as an emoticon or a simple hello, but, if you'd like to start a conversation, I am all ears, talk about whatever you want whether it is a movie you just saw, or a new piece of art you have... You have my ears and eyes. I will respond to every comment I get before the deadline. 

One deviant who participates, will randomly be selected to win a 3 month premium membership or 636 points (your choice).

I also encourage you to take a chance and talk to other deviants! Consider this journal to be an open forum, where you have the opportunity to say hello to someone you might not otherwise. 

So what is there to lose! :heart:

:dalove:

Deadline is February 2, 2014 (11:59:59 PM PDT)


Hey everyone!

This message is aimed towards the film and animation folk in particular, but also for anyone who may want to start dabbling in a bit of video work!

I've had word from the awesome ElectrikPinkPirate hat Hitfilm 2 Express is now free until February 4th. OMG! I can't contain my excitement!

It's a video editor and visual effects software, and we know that not everyone can afford Adobe After Effects, Premier Pro and other 'top software'. So if this is the sort of thing you've been looking for but you haven't had the pennies, GRAB IT NOW!


>> Hitfilm 2 Express <<


It's apparently available for both Mac and Windows so get a move on! :iconswordtardplz:
