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

:iconallison731: nominated by Nameda

I would like to suggest the beautiful Ines for a well-deserved Angels Without Wings Award. While this lovely lady keeps her own page rather humble, one need merely head to her group, WhisperMeWish, to see the bounty of her efforts throughout deviantART. Ines selflessly grants wishes, gives monthly badges along with the confidence that follows, and responds to every comment on her own page with such sweet sincerity and kindness that you'll find yourself instantly charmed by her positive attitude and grace. Dear Ines is also quite talented; you'll find a plethora of exotic and useful stock resources in her gallery. She specializes in tiles and patterns, each of which are unique and breathtaking in their own way. As evident as Ines' heartfelt efforts to encourage, support, and lift up members of this community are, it is equally clear how deserving she is of the title "Angel Without Wings".

Shehroze is that special friend completely dedicated to making people's dA lives better!!! He's a very sweet protector of the Literature part of our community, but he also makes sure that no one stays behind! With his kind soul he does all sorts of wonderful things for others, for example he takes the time to note his friends about new deviants in need of a warm welcome, and he makes sure everybody has their quota of encouragement!!! He also mentions us when he gives his meaningful feedback on comments! I'm so delighted to have met him, and so thankful to dA to have been able to come across such a wonderful human being like Shehroze!!! dA would DEFINITELY not be this awesome if he wasn't a part of it!!! I love you, my dear friend!!!

Tabby's little kittens 3 by shehrozeameen  Haiku IIa heavenly gem;
Paradise shines upon her
majestic presence
  The HazeThe brown leaves that fall in autumn haze
Is blissful concord; a solemn haze
I feel morose sadness fade away
Thus does it come near, a loathsome haze
The winter's snowflakes, aloft, astray
We feel their presence, a phantom haze
The songs heard, of Jibran's reverie
The autumn bid farewell by spring's haze
Soon, I heard someone whisper faintly
"Young one, come, lead us to freedom's haze"

:iconcanankk: nominated by sesam-is-open

"Canan is that breath of fresh air that you KNOW will have a sweet and positive thing to say, but she also has that lovely sense of humor that lifts people's spirits when they can use a smile! This talented Lady has the power of enchanting with her kindness to all those who have the gift of crossing paths with her! Our community would definitely not be the same without our beloved Canan; she promotes new and talented artists very often through the BEAUTIFUL and carefully thought journal features! Her kind words are indeed encouraging, and her creativity shows her special vision about classic and modern art! Her warmth truly transpires all over her profile and on the profiles she visits, so we're happy to see her get these wings today!"

:iconvasidgallery: nominated by MayEbony & Nameda
Where do I even begin to tell you about the wonderful, special, loving and incredibly supportive Angel that is Vasi. Dear Vasi is always so very kind with all of her comments, giving love, praise and constant support to everyone who she comes in contact with. She answers every comment given to her with love and compassion, and she comments on nearly every deviation she faves. This is a rare quality - so many 'fave and run', but she takes the time to tell you why she appreciates and admires your work. And of course she comments on many, many more works, even is she doesn't fave them. Her journals are wonderful, as she so kindly feature other artists, using well-thought themes; taking the time to group deviations where they will be shown to best effect. Her own art is also very beautiful, showcasing Nature with such skill and tenderness. Thank you dear Vasi, for the terrifically fantastic friend that you are to so many people. You're a true and special Angel Without Wings.
