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

For the longest time, if you asked anyone who they think embodies the true spirit of dA community, one name always came to mind! MiloticScale, known to his friends as Jonathan, has been a dedicated member and an influential voice in our community for the past 5 years. Jonathan brings new deviants to light via fella's Welcome Wagon and also runs the monthly ArtFest contest at fella. He's always available when a deviant has a question and is a positive driving force in the community.

Jonathan has always shown the utmost motivation and enthusiasm and when he was not working on his beautiful Fractal Art, you could always find him frequenting the chats or contributing to his many groups which include fella, deviant365, projecteducate and dAseniors, to name a few. Unfortunately, every start has an end, and a few months ago, our dear Jonathan stepped down from taking part in community matters to focus more on other tasks. Jonathon still engages in the seniority community and is always there to help a fellow deviant in need. His tremendous contributions and tireless dedication will never be forgotten. He truly is an angel, and those who know him can understand why we love him so much!

Katy is well known in the DA community as a volunteer for the Digital art and Community Projects categories. She is always friendly, courteous and helpful and truly cares about the opinion of the community at large. She puts out frequent polls and journals on various topics related to DA and allows users to voice their opinions on the subject. The most admirable thing about Katy is her tireless dedication to helping lesser appreciated artists get exposure for their work. She prefers to give Daily Deviations to those with less page-views and favorites and through her work at :devproject-porkchop:, she has given recognition to hundreds of talented artists who we may not have noticed otherwise! Katy is one deviant who absolutely deserves this award!

I think it'd be nearly impossible to find anyone that's involved in the Literature Community that doesn't know LiliWrites. She’s been around for a long time, and is known for both her outstanding artwork and her supportive, selfless, caring demeanor. Lili is among those people who have both skill and patience to write a critique for an artwork, and uses this ability as well to help out aspiring artists. She also leaves helpful comments on artworks for this purpose. Not only she expresses her thoughts, Lili also creates tutorials about giving critiques, leaving constructive comments, or becoming an inevitable member of Deviantart community. She has a kind word for everyone who passes by her page, and is a voluntary helper of several groups on Deviantart. The way she gets people interact through contests and artwork, reflects on her true devotion to this community.

 Puget Sound by LiliWrites  I Am Not UglyWeek 1
     "Why don't you like your body?" Kim asked. Noticing my eyes focused on her pen, she laid it and the yellow legal pad on the table between us. I didn't bother to look at the scribbles there. I knew what they would say.
     Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Low self-esteem. Victim of sexual abuse. Negative self-image. Possibly related to attacker's verbal abuse.
     "Because I'm ugly." My fingers found a strand of lanky blond hair and started to twist. Around and around, tighter and tighter. Eventually, strands were pulled from my scalp, but I didn't notice. Pain had stopped existing.
     "Why do you think that?" Kim shifted in her chair, recrossing her legs and angling her head to get a better look at my down-turned face. I don't know what she thought she'd find there.
     "Because it is true."
     "Who told you that?

:icongrimface242: nominated by Sserenita

Grimsey is one of the sweetest, coolest deviants I've met so far! He is a big pillar in the Literature part of the community, but he's also a beloved friend to people from all corners of dA! He involves everybody in all sorts of sweet, fun ways, through features, challenges, recommendations, fun polls, and so much more! Anyone who has had the privilege to get to know him can attest to the fact that he's the friend we can go to, when we need ANYTHING! He will be there, with his honest opinion and a ton of ideas!!! But he doesn't stop there, he also does such a lot for his friends. He treats us all with the utmost kindness, to the point that he even sends paper notes via regular mail to those who are in need of more of his sweet contact! I love you dear Grimsey!!! So much!!!

its just a rewatch dear. dA is at it again. I vanished from several watchlists and several vanished from mine w/o anyone actively removing :hug:
mippieArt Featured By Owner 4 days ago  Professional Digital Artist
Oooh, well I was wondering about it, I thought you did watch me some time ago already, and you were still on my watchlist, so I was like, well maybe I'm just confused like usual...

nope it is a bug I know since I returned to dA in 2011 after a longer break.
but with the latest changes it increased significantly. The last 2 weeks I re-added about 10 people and got re-added about 6 or so times :(
I wish staff would concentrate on changing things are needed instead of changes no one wants and designing a logo you need to explain to understand it. To me it just looks like a % sign :p

your welcome for the favs. and no I put them in stock on purpose because while some of the pictures are stock that I might use eventually, I mostly use the pictures in that folder to keep my creative juices flowing when I am writing my stories.

There has been a lot of times where I have been stuck on a scene in my book and I will go into my pictures in my stock/favorites it relieve my self-anger and I will come to a piece that reminds me/ helps me find the words that fit the scene beautifully. they are in there because I find really inspirational to my writing.

I know a lot of art theft is going on so I can understand your concern but I am mostly a writer and when I do draw/paint/whatever else I do it based on my writings or myths/zodiac/whatever comes to mind. I have pride and would never steal what I have in my art gallery (thou it's not much) is what I have created
