Random Favourites

My dear friends and watchers

Thanks for each and every :+fav::llama: :+devwatch: They are all so much appreciated!!!

I have come to a point where it gets impossible to thank for all the faves personally.

Though I feel a little guilty, I rather take the time to create new art you hopefully will enjoy and which hopefully will inspire you, give you a smile at the right time, and work on my Project AWW, helping the true Angels get recognised for their kindness, than being continuously 2000+ messages behind.

Be assured I am really and deeply grateful for every single fave and I will continue to answer all comments & notes :)

The same applies vice versa, you don't need to thank me, I know you are grateful too :D

I wont thank you for llamas, but though I don't really care about llamas I will return each one I get :)

May God/dess bless you all :heart:

Nameda's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied

I am a digital artist, photographer and beaded jewellery artist from Germany.

Art is my passion, builds a big part of what I am. I want to inspire people with my art. I want to touch them, to make them see the beauty of the world around us, make them see the magic, the divine spark in everything. I love to give them a moment of serenity in this world full of stress, a smile when they really need it.

I hope to get my art seen to a much broader, bigger audience than it gets seen now, so it can touch more people, that it can inspire them and that hopefully I see the day I can make a living from my art. And support my family through something I really love to do. To show my kid and youngsters around the world that it is still possible to follow your heart and do what you love to do.

My art is as diverse as I am :) I love to get close and capture the amazing details and beauty of flowers and insects, the grace of a cat, the beauty of nature, of god's creation.... I love to go "wild" with photo manipulation and digital art and create spiritual artwork, magical art, art that inspires. I love to create jewellery with a story / idea behind it, but still is wearable as everyday jewellery.

My artists name Nameda comes from native american, to be exact from the Anishinabeg (Ojibwe /Chippewa) Nameda or Namida is the short form of Namid Anang meaning star dancer

:icon3wyl: suggested by MistyCascade

3wyl always seems to have something helpful to say whenever she comments on artwork. She promptly answers questions and comments. She even runs a group specifically for the purpose of creating an incentive for people to comment well thought out comments. She is a community volunteer, but she goes above and beyond her call of duty.

"If I can do anything for you, please do not hesitate to contact me."
This sentence, as powerful as it is brief, really sums up the heart of what 3wyl brings to table here on deviantART. 3wyl is a beloved community volunteer who goes far above and beyond her call of duty. Whether it's her incredibly helpful feedback on art and forums alike, the dedication she pours into featuring daily deviations, or even the warmth and welcome found on her front page, 3wyl is truly a shining star of unconditional generosity. She also works equally hard to inspire that generosity in everyone who crosses her path; she even runs a group specifically for encouraging the posting of thoughtful comments. And, despite all of this, she makes sure to address all questions and comments that are directed to her. Finally, 3wyl is also a talented artist; her photography seems to move and breathe of its own accord; it really speaks for the grace and beauty of its creator. She is definitely worthy of the title "Angel Without Wings". 

Light by 3wyl  Emotion 01Greed,
It's safe to say, I hate you. I hate the path you walk on, tempting others so they submit, weak.
I hate how you swallow up all the feelings and emotions that I know are in there and you replace them with your selfish needs that are envious of others, because the fact, the true fact, is I have no need to be selfish, no need to be envious, and yet you, Greed, you leave no room for that.
I hate how you make me forget how lucky I am; lucky to be alive, lucky to still have all five senses, lucky to have great friends who are always there behind me, if not with me. You consume all the things I am grateful for until I see nothing but the burning desire, rearing its head up and striking at every . single . place.
You make me feel as if a part of me is incomplete, that something is missing, and that when I have whatever it is, everything will be alright, a circle once again, but that isn't true, it's not fucking true.
I hate you, Greed, for making me feel this way, b

:iconaerode: suggested by WeirdAndLovely

The list of the reasons which make Aerode deserve this special award, featured „And I just love him”. And it’s indeed easy to take to a personality like his. Even though he’s relatively new to the community, he does everything to make Deviantart a better place. He selflessly promotes works by another artists: he places their works int he very top of his page, and is running multiple feature projects. Along with his amazing literature art, he also creates supportive stamps for people he finds extraordinary, is constantly looking for work to promote, and basically has a good word for everyone. Nothing could express it more than the group, he’s running, called :devdaybrighteners: , that looks for kind words of love, or pictures that can simply make a day. He’s also connecting people in group chat rooms. He is int he tame of the group called BurdenedHearts , that, as the name implies, helps broken-hearted people to get together and find solutions for their issues. These acts of kindness also make us believe that Aerode’s everything we could ever hope for an Angel.
All You Knead is Love by Aerode  Half-Written LetterDear Friend,
Hello. It has recently come
To my Knowledge that you
Have been Hurting Yourself.
As your Hand-to-Hand friend, I
Want to tell You that I do not
Approve Of this. You should Not be
Slitting Your Wrists or Cutting
You arm in The dead of Night
When you think that Everybody
Is Asleep. I know that you might
Think That no one Cares for You but
They do. At least, I Do. So stop
Hurting Yourself. You're affecting
Much more than Just You. Do not let
This be The End of the road for You.
You have much More to Look Forward too.
Because I told you Before that You
Are Perfect to Me.

:iconnavybluepanda: suggested by anonymous

NavyBluePanda is a young, sweet deviant with a greatly caring heart. Not only Mercédès is a really nice and generous person in general, but she's just started a group called Feature-at-Random, which focuses on getting random deviants and deviations featured. Meanwhile, she is an active leader of three another groups. She's also really supporting towards other groups – she saves points and gives them away to the founders as a surprise, to be able to buy super group statuses, as well as she supports individual artists. Mercédès's got epilepsy as well, which has opened her eyes to the severity of the disease, and she regularly goes and comments on other peoples' submissions to wish them well. Another thing she does is she goes out of her way to help others when they need it, and will do so without question; Mercédès always listens and is always kind to people, and she'll stand up for people who don't or can’t stand up for themselves. Even when she’s going through tough times, she puts that aside to help others, and does her best to make everyone happy.

NotemSMSK is a very sweet friend to many of us! He's very kind and a real pleasure to have as a friend!!! When he's not featuring deviants from everywhere around dA, he keeps himself very busy giving meaningful feedback and very helpful critiques!!! He's the kind of person who cannot get unnoticed, because he leaves a sweet trail of kindness wherever he goes! All of his comments and responses are filled with encouragement and all sorts of helpful advice!!! And although his main passion and biggest talent is the world of Writing, he has been selflessly giving his time and efforts to artists from all types of art mediums, and his critiques are filled with kindness, respect and honest opinions!!! Having a sweet friend like NotemSMSK is a real blessing indeed!!!

PerfectionFoolish I'd say, may all those be
who so foolishly wish to achieve
what is approached only, never touched
Be it in your hand, but never in your clutch.
He sat in his tower that overlooked both his castle and the plains far ahead. He had seen them drenched with blood many a time for years had passed since he had taken the seat as Baron; he had lost count after a century or so had passed. Yet he sat there, fresh in youth and sound in health as if time had yet to bare its fangs against him. He looked around. There were objects surrounding him that were as old as he was. Staring at them he felt a shard pierce his heart for the first time in years and he gazed outside the window.
His servant Biliuth entered the dark chambers where he saw his master seated in his usual seat next to the great blade that descended through generations. Then again for his master a couple of centuries meant little. What made the sword to be savored by an immortal was the man who last wielded it, the only worthy adversary to the baron in his entire existence, Sir Guordon Fort.
Biliuth approached, placing the tray on the small table that was situated under the lef
