Welcome to the Otafest group for deviantART! For information on the convention itself, please visit!

"What is Otafest?

In 1999, Otafest was born when the University of Calgary's Dedicated Otaku Anime Club decided to have a 1 day film festival showing Japanese Animation (anime) to the public.

Over the next decade, Otafest has grown to become its own non-profit organization (Otafest Film and Cultural Festival Planning Committee), and while we still showcase anime, that is only a part of the festival now.

Otafest is an annual conference for anime enthusiasts. We act as a creative outlet for fans, an occasion where they can show their passion and appreciation of the hobby. We are an event where fans can show off the costumes they have made, the music videos they have created, and the art they have painted and drawn. Otafest is a forum for discussion and education. We host educational panels introducing others to the basics of the Japanese language, and tips on how to use computer programs to enhance music videos and CG art. In the past, we have hosted guests who explained the process of donning a kimono, demonstrate the intricacies of tea ceremonies, and Iaido (the art of drawing a sword from a scabbard). We have invited individuals involved in the voice acting and animation industries to speak of their experiences. Otafest is a marketplace. We gather dozens of vendors together from all over Western Canada, to facilitate the best bargain hunting in town. And, of course, we haven't forgotten our roots: Otafest is an anime festival.

We bring the latest shows and videos, as well as the fondest classics, and provide an opportunity for fans to see anime on the big screen, as well as a chance for the curious to see what it’s all about. We are a chance for fans to get together and celebrate their hobby, and to share their passions with you.
We hope to see you this year!

A male counterpart to the various female gas groups on DA.

:bulletgreen:Submit to the correct folder.

:bulletgreen:Don't submit to 'Featured', unless you're really confused on where to put it. Your stuff will be relocated.

:bulletgreen:Human, anthro, and feral accepted.

:bulletgreen:As long as a gassy guy is present in the same work, gassy girls are fine too.

:bulletgreen:Original pieces only - no reposts.

:bulletgreen:No purposefully bad/joke art.

:bulletgreen:Be nice.

These are subject to change and I'll probably add more as the group grows.

When life gives us lemons......

When life gives us lemons, we make sure the lemons aren't poisoned before we start an international lemonade chain store!

We're a bunch of art and lemon loving deviants! New members, contributors, and watchers are always welcome with open arms. As long as you bring lemons, and art of course.

Rules? Try to keep it PG-13, but f-bombs are excepted. If you're a contributor, contribute. That means voting on submissions, and posting your own art at least once a month. I'm pretty lax about enforcing rules, so don't worry. I only kick people who are inactive for more than six months, or those who have offended others (so play nice).

Above all else, enjoy the group. This group was founded to share art, and for lesser known artists to showcase their stuff amidst the millions of deviants.

So stay devious, and welcome to Fallen Worlds,
Iris Emma (aka asianplatypus6).
