With Love for Those Who Suffer













:heart::iconallmyloveplz::heart:
Depression, anxiety and panic attacks are NOT a sign of weakness. They are signs of having tried to remain strong for too long. Share the support. Let those who struggle know they’re not alone…

Angels And Gangstas Group Monthly Award by MayEbony
Thank you to all of the very sweet Angels and Gangstas, and particularly to :iconmypeanutgallery: for presenting me with the monthly :iconangels-and-gangstas: Award in June 2014 . I guess it was for starting up the group for all of the dear 'Angels Without Wings' and 'Gangstas of Love' and getting everything off the ground.

Heartist by Nameda
My goodness, I've today (17th Jun '14) been awarded with a deviantHEART from :icondeviantheart: Thank you so very much dear Denise :iconsserenita: and all at deviantHEART: that means so much to me!
The text they so kindly wrote reads...
May is one of those wonderful people that you don't get to meet very often in life. She is a shining example of a caring and loving deviant, and her entire page is a tribute to the community she loves. She is constantly showing her gratitude through special projects and features bringing stand-out deviants into the spotlight. Most prominently, May is a representative for The Angels Without Wings program, as well as a recipient of the award herself!

May is beloved by so many people and is just a shining ray of light spreading love and joy wherever she goes! She is proud of her beautiful family and her gallery is a testament to her love for life. She is truly someone that we all look up to and aspire to be. It is with great pleasure that I bestow the honor of Featured Heartist on MayEbony!

:iconsesam-is-open: Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part SevenIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can  receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling  that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our  dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how

:icontoni-r: Interview with MayEbonyMayEbony
:bulletgreen: How did you got into photography? :bulletgreen:
My grandfather belonged to a camera club and asked me to go along as the model for his group one month.  The experience fascinated me.  This was in the days when film was the only choice and they had to wait until they’d finished the roll to see their results.  I was 13.
:bulletgreen: Which piece from your gallery are you most proud of, and why? :bulletgreen:
I still love Wave Spilling Over Rocks   I’d had my DSLR 6 months by then and was finally starting to understand its functions so this is one of my earliest pieces that I’d had to learn a great deal in order to take.  I’d really worked hard to earn this shot.  Plus I love how much there is to look at in the shot as well as the basic colours.
:bulletgreen: Have you ever achieved any awards for your photography? :bul

:iconinspirationstation1: Our Member Feature ~ May Ebony!Hi Everyone, we would like to introduce you to May, our second featured member!  Thank you Blue for a wonderful interview with May!
Here is just a small sample of May's amazing gallery of beautiful photo's:
         
         
Blue asked May: How long have you been an artist and do you remember what it was that lead you down this path in life, to be an artist?
I think I’ve had a love of beauty my whole life, but as far as creating art – that probably started when I got my first camera for my 11th birthday.  That was long, long ago in 1967 and my father bought me films that I could take only 12 pictures with, and a flash cube that gave you 4 flashes before you had to buy a new cube :iconteheplz:  My beautiful and beloved Grandfather was a good photographer and oil painter so I loved photography becaus

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

:iconkiwicocktail: suggested by TouchofArtistry & Nameda

KiwiCocktail is already an angel in her own right. If you meet her, you can’t unsee what a loving, kind person she is. Julia is also really devoted to the community of Deviantart – she shares her collections of other people’s artworks on her page, she creates features regularly, and also promotes the names of outstanding artists and dear friends, as well as groups with description – basically her page itself gives a lot of help to dA-dwellers! She also leads a group, I-Heart-Colors to spread some visual happiness, suggests DDs and always lends a hand to those who need it, and is an absolutely great companion. Julia uses her point donations to help other artists with commissions and premium memberships, and also gives them to those who are in need. While she is busy doing all of this great work, she still finds time to mentor artists who are opening new groups. She has also recently become a gangsta of love – and as she indeed is a valuable asset to this community, and would make an excellent AWW!

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

:icongwendolyn12: suggested by cinyu

Ellen is a professional traditional artist from Brazil with a deep passion for the DeviantART community. She has an impressive list of accomplishments which include being awarded seniority and the Deviousness Award. She also served the past year as a CV and has firmly rooted herself at the heart of the Anime/Manga community. Ellen is described by her peers as selfless and giving and helps anyone she comes in contact with. She always shows support for her fellow deviants and puts her best effort into any project she undertakes. It is because of her undying dedication and inspiring efforts that we happily award her with a long deserved pair of wings!

:iconminato-kushina: suggested by Just-To-Look1

Its time for DeviantArt's #1 DD suggester to receive her very own pair of Wings! With 4 years of DD suggesting, she has devoted her community spirit with more than 1000 accepted DDs, meaning thousands of deviants have gained exposure through DDs. When you look through her accepted DDs favorites, you will be amazed at how fascinating her art choices have been to bring forth those lovely pieces to our attention. Currently admin of nine groups, she is on a mission of suggesting about 50 DD per week. She chooses those art pieces from groups, from front page, from favorites of other people and from just random search and you can imagine the time, effort and dedication she has been putting in for such a long time. Over brimming with love for community she promotes in others to participate a lot, join groups, make feature journals and give random comments and favorites or even donations and presents, if you can to give happiness and attention to others.
While she's not suggesting one, she's also a wonderful friend who gives uplifting and encouraging comments. She's a deviant worthy enough to gain her wings.

:iconlolita-artz: suggested by RogueMudblood

Julie is a beautiful soul who makes it clear how important the community is to her on a daily basis. She creates beautiful weekly features for deviants throughout the community and generously doles out the recognition that every artist deserves. She leaves comments for numerous other deviants. On top of being admin of six groups, she always responds to the comments left on her own works, letting users know she appreciates their feedback. Visiting her DA page makes you realize how active and beloved she is by the community and how she values art by putting up so many art pieces of her and others. I urge you to go and explore her profile; you may well gain a wonderful friend on top of fantastic talent and support.
