Fellas World - Contest

Fri Feb 14, 2014, 2:09 AM


:note: Contest ended -see the winners here fav.me/d7cqu2v.

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.

No, i don't think so. Compared to the preparation the outcome isn't really overwhelming. Sadly. I might do less big contests in the future though.

Once, all judges have done their part and the winner for each category is found.
Why are you always so impatient with everything? Things like these take time. The contest run for 6 weeks, waiting for a few more days shouldn't be such a problem at all.

Your entry is there. If you change your browse settings to "Newest" it should show up for you as well. If you browse with "What's hot", "Undiscovered" etc it could happen, that it won't show.

Just a quick just-in-case check; deadline being on March 28th, does it mean contest ends at beginning of it, or includes it too; aka, does it ends on night between 27 and 28, or on night between 28 and 29?
You know how it goes... When we are catching last train, all us hope we have at least a bit more time :D

Time is also listed there "11:59:59 PM (PT - Los Angeles, CA, USA)". Means in the night from the 28th to the 29th the contest will end. :nod:

I sow it while I read it, I just wasn't completely certain, that's all, and it's better to ask and know for sure, then keep wondering. Thanks for your time, I hope I will manage to finish my entry in time :iconaawplz:

It's there, but you might have to change your browsing settings to see it. If you browse with "undiscovered" or "what's hot" etc it can happen that it doesn't appear because it is too new. Change it to 'Newest' and it should appear :aww:
