Gangstas of Love stamp by Nameda

Eve
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States



I'm a self taught artist, who has discovered the wonders of digital art in 2007. My software of preference is Adobe Illustrator, but I know my way around in a variety of other softwares. Sometimes I wish I had all the time in the world to dedicate just to my art, because it's my true passion!!! :love: ... My avatar image is my first uploaded painting when I opened my account back in October 2009, I was really proud of it, and will never forget how I felt when I saw the pageviews counter adding up!!! :faint: ... I thrive to never lose that sense of "awe" I had when I first started here, and so far it's intact!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::love::iconflyingheartsplz: Whenever I see a fave or someone gives me a llama, or they write me a comment, it brings me a lot of joy!!! :iconmimose-stock: That is why I would like to take this opportunity to thank in advance all of you who do so much to support me!!! :love: Sometimes life gets in the middle and I'm unable to answer each one of you individually, I will eventually answer, please know it!!! :iconflyingheartsplz::iconsweethugplz::iconflyingheartsplz: So thank you, my dears!!! :iconaawplz: From the bottom of my heart!!!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconjeffrettalyn: nominated by MoonyMina and MayEbony

Dear Katie truly is one of the world's beautiful souls. She is so kind and loving and always really helpful... She creates free tutorials, journal skins, PS brushes, wallpaper and gallery CSS and, when you have trouble installing them, or adjusting them to your screen, she doesn't mind spending 2 hours helping you, even if you are really slow to understand. Katie is always so generous with everyone and her heart is constantly considering the needs of others first. She gives PMs, suggests other deviants for rewards, gives llamas, and so many other things above and beyond just normal dA friendship. She is also an amazing handicrafter and artist - her many and varied talents will blow you away if you check her gallery. Katie is so positive and caring in her attitude - a total sunshine to brighten anyone's day!

Lady is a friend who is truly an Angel Without Wings! She answers all her comments, she is friendly (and very cute), and works really hard to assist everyone to improve their own art. Lady regularly produces beautiful art features to showcase other artists work, and creates really inspiring art of her own. LadyMidnightSolace is a very kind and helpful person, she is that kind of person, when you meet her you'll say "what a nice girl!" She has this gentle and generous aura that makes it difficult not to like her, and she goes out of her way to help others feel good about themselve. She is positive in nature, and cheers people on. Lady also helps with running several groups that are designed to help other artists get better at making art, stories and characters! Anyone who devotes so much time and energy into helping others surely deserves a pair of wings!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconsabakunoshi: nominated by sesam-is-open jennystokes & MYPeanutGallery

Shi is a wonderful artist and friend, not to mention an admirable and supportive member of the community. Always willing and ready to help, she consistently promotes and encourages other artists with beautiful features and encouraging critiques. She also keeps a habit of posting well-thought out articles, and offers constant featuring opportunities for club work. To top it off, Shi is incredibly talented herself; her digital and traditional art alike breathe life and subtle emotion, you can find deviants all around making use of her wonderful journal skins, and her photography holds a sweet sort of glow around it that mirrors her personality. Despite her popularity, she maintains an approachable demeanor, and is a joy to interact with. Thoughtful and earnest, it cannot be denied that she is genuinely enjoyable to speak with. For those of you who don't know her yet, Shi will be an enlightening and lovely revelation.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconganjamira: nominated by FTSArts

Marika has to be unique in the whole of dA, and perhaps anywhere!  She spends her own money and time on free commissions for her watchers, and on members of the group SantaDoesExist, for which she is the driving force in promoting the group, bringing in new members and keeping it a supergroup.  She also does monthly crafting material giveaways for deviants who don't have the money to get those materials themselves. These sets are not cheap, and she ships them worldwide to the winners. She loves getting creativity to blossom and spread, and has never been seen to say no to anyone who asks for help.  A lot of artists like to keep their secrets close to themselves, but Marika is kindness and generosity embodied!  Marika takes the money she gets from her own commissions and recycles it back to other members here on dA.  She usually has thousands of messages in her notification centre, but answers them all.  She couldn't be more down to earth, friendly and approachable!  Many deviants have seen their own skills improve so much because of Marika's generous tips and kind assistance. She is deeply loved by all of her watchers for the lavish, kind and loving attention she gives to every single person.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconschnitzelyne: nominated by StaceyEleven

Schnitzelyne is an incredibly friendly and helpful person who answers all of her messages in the kindest possible manner. She puts a huge amount of effort into finding under-appreciated artists, and featuring and exposing other's artwork, that it was time she got the spot-light turned on her and her own good deeds for a change. She makes a lot of features, usually every second day, and often tries to find unknown deviants to support, as well as those whose art deserves more attention. Her features are a pure art form in themselves with each deviation carefully placed to showcase it to its best advantage, along with those around it. Schnitzelyne suggests Daily Deviations when she can as well. She is a truly beautiful person, replying to almost all the comments she gets, and writes critiques from time to time, even offering on her profile page that she will write critiques on request. Schnitzelyne is also a volunteer with ProjectEducate, as well as admin of another 6 groups. If anyone is truly generous and giving of heart, Schnitzelyne is definitely that person.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconarte-de-junqueiro: nominated by MayEbony

Dear Mel is one of the most kind and supportive friends you could ever wish to have. I know that he's been there for me, and others, when they've been down or worried. He has such a supportive attitude that gives you hope for the future but, more importantly, strength for what you are going through right now. I know that Mel is the most amazing person in that, when he finds difficulties in life, he remains positive and kind and never runs anyone down. Mel also has a really generous heart in the comments and replies that he gives - his words are always so very genuine, supportive and kind. And as if that wasn't enough, he also gifts many of his photos to friends as gifts or birthday presents, and shares his photographic techniques freely in answer to any questions. Mel truly is an Angel Without Wings and my life is all the richer for his friendship.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda:iconbrookette: MayEbony

Dear Brooke is a Volunteer♥ in the artisan crafts area, and is unbelievably friendly, helpful and kind. She also has a bright and sunny personality which bubbles through so much in all of her interactions with others. Brooke is a rare and wonderful person in that she answers *all* of her messages, which is no mean task. As an admin with 8 groups, including ProjectEducate, and the heavy workload involved in receiving DD suggestions, she gets more messages than many could cope with! Even with all of this, and a 'real life' too, she creates the most beautiful and inspiring crafts and art works of her own. She's one very popular lady, and deservedly so! Brooke creates regular beautiful and thoughtful features to promote all facets of Hand Craft, and the artisans who create them. She is so cheery and encouraging towards everyone and their talents - both experienced artisans, and new. Nobody could ask for a better CV or more loving friend than sweet Brooke. She has even crocheted some friends' avatars as 3D amigurumis and gifted them. That's the generous, thoughtful, kind and loving Angel that she is!

Life Improvement











































These are articles I found around deviantART.
I believe with all my heart that
they can save a life somehow! :love:
If this helps you in any way,
then I could call this "Mission Accomplished"!!! :iconlainloveplz:



You can't say you can't!As a child I was a bright student, always used to grab among the first 3 positions in my class, teachers used to love me (I was never a teacher's pet though) and my mom and dad (specially dad) supported me with his heart and soul. We always have guidance/influence from others in some way or the other. I was fortunate enough to get them I guess. But there comes a time in your life where you need to move alone and build your own responsibilities, you need to make your own ways, you need make your own decisions and you need to choose the right path.
The world is cruel enough to pull you down every time you want to climb up. But you can't stop there. You have to move on. You can't say you can't!
I have seen a lot of phases in my life in the last 25 years. In deviantART everyone says they like the way I talk to people, the way I treat them and the way I guide them. May be I shouldn't use the word "everyone", perhaps it should be at least most of them says so.
I get a lot of people coming to
Self-Respect... It's important!Self-Respect and Self-Esteem
Self-respect is a sense or awareness of YOUR OWN dignity and integrity. You show your worth to yourself and to others (dignity), and you adhere to moral and ethical principles (integrity). You know you have value within you... You appreciate that value, even on a bad day.
Self-esteem is your emotional evaluation of YOUR OWN WORTH. You have confidence in who you are. You can find success in the things you do. Even when you compare yourself to others, you can see your own unique value as an individual. And you can make your own choices and learn from your mistakes.
:iconstardivider1plz::iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider3plz:
"Truth be told, you need to have respect for YOURSELF before you can expect to respect others."

Why Self-Respect & Self-Esteem are Important
Self-respect and self-esteem go hand-in-hand. It is hard to respect yourself if you have a low self-esteem. If you find yours
How to Save a LifeYou can be a Hero and save a life.
I want you to think for second, if you were in an accident or found out your parents had a diseases that left them 6 week to live, what would you do about it?
Would you help them? What if it's your brother or sister that needs help? Would you help them? What if it's your next door neighbour? What if it's someone from a different part of the country? What if it's someone on the other side of the world?
But here is the real question. "If you could receive the help, then why can't you give it?"
Blood donation
Every minute of the day someone somewhere needs blood, everyone need blood sometime in their life, maybe they were In a accident or trying to get through a very risky and difficult operation or even giving birth. They are counting on you to make sure the blood is there when it is needed. Please don't wait for someone else to do this. You are needed.
Only 4% of the eligible population are giving blood, not everyone can give blood, you need to be heal

I am hoping to reach at least 300 inspiring messages from the community if I can. 
At the end of this year, 2013, 10 calenders and 16 three month PMs will be given away to inspired deviants.(that means random/anyone. )
The calenders to remind you of how special every day is, and PMs because sadly the notebooks are no longer available. 
However, the points cost of this project's completion is around: <b>
Respect YourselfMy friend shared this video to warn other artists about how she was taken advantage of, and I believe this is a very important message that every artist should hear.
I've lost count of how many times someone, be it a big corporation or an individual, have asked me to illustrate for them for free. It will always go something like this "You draw this for us, and we will include your name in the credits. That's good publicity for you!" as if such a pathetic offer holds any merit.
There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution. Don't forget we have places like Deviantart, tumblr, and all those social networking sites. Sharing art, like sharing any information, has never been easier. You don't have to degrade yourself for some disrespectful publisher to get you art se

Super Albino Llama and Thoughts On Life
by ~GermanyXItaly1000, 1 day, 21 hours ago
Journals / Personal
Thanks for the llamas, everyone! I'm so glad that I made it to a super albino llama TT^TT Well, like Mr. Monk, my favourite number is 100, so... I'm happier than ever. Although this is a lie because things in real life have made me happier, and must we remind ourselves that materialistic things will vanish easily.
Oh yes... that brings me to another point.  I've been feeling Confucius-ey lately. With how quickly time is passing by and how close graduation is for me, I've started to feel a bit nostalgic. Do this for me: Think back to a carefree time in your childhood. Think of how little you worried back then about materialistic items, how little you cared for reputation and how much selfless you were.
And then get out there and savour whatever moment of your life is going on.
No matter what we're going through (whether it be a r
Arts and Health: The language of empowermentWhat is empowerment?
Empowerment means different things to different people. I would say that, in general, it means that we are in a position of power such that we have a say in the way things happen in our lives. It means that we can act in ways that will bring the good things we desire into our lives or, if that isn't possible, act in a way that limits the amount of negativity that happens when bad things enter our lives.
It's about being able to make a choice between "I CAN do this" and "I WILL do this."
Contrary to popular belief, the truth is that no one can empower you for you. Empowerment must come from within. The good news is that it doesn't need to require hours of psychotherapy to find it. :XD: It starts simply with language.
Really?!
Yes, really. How often do you put yourself down? How frequently do you begin sentences with, "This may sound crazy/silly/stupid, but . . ."? Do you realize that every time you use words t
PE: 5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!5 EXCUSES why you just can't do better!
You really want to, you've worked hard to develop the skills you have and you enjoy every minute of doing what you love. And besides, people say that your artworks are...nice. Cute. Doesn't that count for something? Sure it does, there is no reason to panic and pointlessly push yourself forward. Enjoy your coffee break!
Besides, even if you didn't like the current level as much, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it at the moment. So many unfortunate happenings stand right between you and your dream. Recognizing any of the following?
:bulletred: 1 - You don't have the time
You're right! After all, you are a human being, not a machine, waking up early every morning, heading to school/work, afterwards taking care of the household/kids/your homework, studying, you barely even finish all the tasks during the 24 hours that's been given to everyone.
On the other hand, is there absolutely

Myth: Respect Must be EarnedEveryone goes blind...
Yes, just like the age-old adage goes, "An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind." Think about it: if you never give respect but expect to receive it, and every other person on the planet thinks the same thing, who is ever going to be respected? If your default setting is to treat me with disrespect or to simply ignore me until I impress you enough to take notice of me, you really aren't worth my time. And I would think that if someone treated you in the same way that they would not be worth your time either. Our default setting should always be to respect first.
