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
Nameda
Natasha
Artist | Professional | Varied
Germany


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

It’s a simple task that you need to do once every month. Journal content is given to you, complete. Just choose 3 deviations from each of the new Angels galleries to add to the journal, upload it to your own account, and notify the new Angels of their feature.

:iconfelizias: suggested by KiwiCocktail Nameda & TheGalleryOfEve

Feli is an amazing friend with a wonderful sense of humor. She’s always ready to cheer people up and she achieves that beautifully!!! She’s dedicated to this community via group work and mentoring other deviants and leaving thoughtful comments on our pages. She features people all the time, she truly goes out of her way to make us all stand out!!! :love:

Her uplifting comments and cheerful personality is something that makes those of us who have the pleasure to interact with her often, happy to call her our friend!!! It’s rare to see people who can connect with others the way Feli does, but she does it, she succeeds making her friends and watchers feel special!!! :heart:

I think not just this community, but the WHOLE world is a better place because of her existence!!! :heart: I love our Feli, and I nominate her because she has earned her wings through the love she spreads around on a daily basis!!!

As a side note, when I lost two of my core gangstas due to personal circumstances and I desperately needed help, she jumped in to help without even batting a lid. When it turned out that Eve would not return it was logical to make her a core gangsta, so this is kind of a double celebration.

WE LOVE YOU DEAR FELI!!!

The words charming, passionate and dedicated don't even begin to describe our next angel! Phyllis is one of the kindest and most supportive deviants around and is always helping others in any way she can. Her gallery is overflowing with positive energy and you can feel the joy in everything she shares! She's always there for a deviant that might be struggling and not sure where to go next and she supports those she watches by spreading their informative journals, contests, and projects through DevNews.



In addition to her main account, she also has a stock account where she offers high quality stock with lenient rules. Her efforts earned her the "Great Stockers with Fair Rules" award in 2014. Phyllis is also a highly respected member of the Senior community where she is an avid contributor! Just recently, she started a brand new interview series through DevNews to further give exposure to outstanding members of the community. If you add one new name to your watch list today, let it be WDWParksGal...you won't be disappointed!

Ricky is a beautiful soul and an incredible artist. He is a staunch supporter of literary community with his groups like LitRecognition and literatureroadtrip and is also a swing admistrator for DailyLitRecognition.

woman who gives far too much. (jenene)
beautiful soul, step away
for a moment and take it all in.
you love so much, 
you love so much,
you love so much,
you love with all of your being
that i often wonder 
if you've forgotten
how to do anything else.
woman who gives far too much,
i understand how the wear
and tearing apart of your love
can tear your cheeks
but you need not wear
the selfishness of others
as war paint to your
features of solace.
you are too beautiful
for the scars people
so callously disregard
as your burden,
because it is not.
but i know you love
until there is none left
and even then,
you will always find
trinkets of it 
in your back pocket,
so i am here to reiterate:
when your seemingly
endless waterfall of love
begins to run dry,
please know i can be the well 
where there is an infinite
supply for the woman
who gives too much;
the woman who loves
and lives as if it
she was put on this earth
to only do such,
i will always have 
  the greatest love ever experienced.side a.
woman with the sad smile. (simone)
i've seen this smile
for as long as i can remember.
it is a sad smile,
a beautiful wonder,
a tragedy that never quite ended,
and strength in the way
she never ended either.
i am but a stone
sitting atop your mountain
that has never budged,
even if there is a slightest
of cracks in her formation.
with the strength of a thousand men,
she fights for me.
for her. for him. for them.
and she does so without question,
she gives herself away
until there is none left for her,
but i hope that i can continue
to give more to you,
to show you that i too
will become a mountain
in your image.
at least a pillar of strength
for someone in the same way
you have been my mountain,
my strength
since the day i was born
and how literal do i mean that.
woman with the sad smile,
as long as you are smiling
and holding onto the hope
that is the cornerstone
of our family,
we will fight for you
as you fight for us.
and i will die for you.
live for you,
and strive

  learning how to walk (steps and aptitude)first drafts are always hardest.
constantly a revolving door
of evolutions working
in progress to
find contentedness
but it is often contention
we find laced under wrinkles.
 
i see you with blurry vision
and twenty-twenty
glass view
for what i believe to be
a beautiful girl
just learning
how to walk again.
 
i say it with the utmost respect.
your introversion curls
like shadows in
closet skeletons
frames holding bones
and weight as it pushes
back within itself.
 
i hear you echo within
vocal cords and shaky sighs
holding yourself together
with weak arms and a soft mind
but i see the hardened areas
of your incorporeality.
 
steady and still
moving and waving
moods swinging
like pendulum cords
meshing contusion,
confusion.
soliloquy somber
and unwavering
as each barrier
ricochets
like elastic collisions.

that we all have two beings.

long-term is the aptitude test.

He takes the time to supports fellow deviant with features on his profile page, with HTML coding, in giving valuable critiques and wonderfully uplifting comment. He also runs many features in his journals, including a monthly interview series. His gallery encompasses alluring pieces of poetry that inspires us and touches our heart and soul! A wonderful and truly deserving AWW, he really is generous and considerate, also showing incredible compassion for people who are suffering emotionally. Thank you for the incredibly touching contribution that you make to all those who cross your path Ricky!

Denise has been a member of Deviantart for a year, yet she has made perhaps even more contribution to Deviantart than someone who has been here for ten times as much. It’s impossible to see that she has gone full force in every aspect of making DA a great community. She is there whenever there is a worthy cause to promote, or an artist to give support. She leads a group for digital artists and a senior contributor to another one, helping another people in her field to get some attention. But that’s not the only way she helps fellow artists to get more exposure. She’s the founder of The-Feature-Showcase and a moderator at GetDailyDeviations , both aiming to discover outstanding art. She also often suggests daily deviations, mostly in her own category – digital art -, but is helping photographers as well. She’s also moderator of a group which is specialized to bring underestimated artists to the spotlight, not to mention her astounding features and interviews with digital artists. Talking about community, Denise is a contributor to several reputable groups trying to promote positivity, holding communities together, helping newbies to start their own way, and is a supervisor at of dAWishingWell and helps to grant wishes of really many deviants. And last, but not least, she’s been a gangsta of love for a really long time – and after so many acts of kindness, good deeds, devotion and love given to every single deviant she knows, she really deserves to earn her wings!
