who are Angel without Wings?
who are Angel without Wings? That are those fellow deviants:
who more or less regularly feature other deviants
who allways willingly give tips, hints, helpful comments
who answer at least a fair amount of the comments they get
who give kind and or uplifting words where they see its needed
who feature and pimp projects and deviants who need support/help
who take the time to suggest DD's on a more or less regular base
or what else helpful, kind, supporting they might do/have done
I wanted and still want, that those people who do such a lot for the community,
who make dA the great place it is, get the well deserved attention for all their kindness and help.
Thats why I want that this Project gets big, I mean really BIG, so we find more of those Angels, and those awarded get the recognition and attention they deserve so much.
Till March each week and since than every two weeks 3 deviants will be awarded with a pair of wings and get featured by me and my fellow Gangstas of love (in alphabetical order):

FaMz, suggested by Wimley
Faheema is a lovely, always friendly and caring girl from idyllic Barbados, with some more "exotic" roots, which makes her probably making such inspiring fantastic photography. She's currently GD for Conceptual photography Gallery. A well deserved position for someone that from the moment I know her always supported everyone, always commented with building critiques and features a lot of deviants that she thinks deserve it. And her knowledge about photography/design, she's an art student, she shares with everyone that asks for advice.
Corvidae65, suggested by Manwathiell
John is a fantastic guy. He helps everyone, anytime. Always giving advice, helping out, friendly. He told me once that he was placed on this earth to serve. I wish I could write better in English to express what a beautiful person he is, how many friends he has that think alike, and how many times I have read comments from him towards other people. Since I entered DA, he has been my guarding angel, helping out to get to know my camera, guiding me on what to use, what shutter speed is, how to properly use the openings... He's an angel for sure!
1. seraphRo by Wimley & undyingangel
Bogdan is a student from Romania. For some he might look like a viking (), but in fact he's a real teddy bear. Always there for everyone with advice, helping out with designs and editing, comments, features, and most of all... for some here he became a real friend with who you can talk about everything. Great guy and an angel on earth forever! And above this, a great artist and photographer. Check out his great gallery and give him a big hug!
2. Dieffi by Nameda & Wimley & Adi-Emus
Wolfgang is a wonderful, friendly, caring man from Germany, with a wonderful taste to catch wonderful moments in nature. Always looking for something new to discover, and share with us. But he shares more than only his photography. He's a very supportive member of many club, always there with a friendly word. His page is full of features for others, and he's always there with a thank you, and a word of concern if he knows you need it... a real "father" angel to many of us here!

After having awarded his wife LadyAliceofOz it's time to award Bob too. Together they organize contests with lots of marvellous prizes. Bob also features a lot, and is always there with comments and advice for everyone that asks him. Always looking for new challenges, and there with advice and constructive comments. And most of all, everyone is welcome, whatever background, religion, politics, as long as there's no hate involved. Wonderful point of view from a real angel!
1. positively suggested by Wimley
Agnieszka is a 16-year old Polish girl from Wroclaw, but oohh so mature! And as her nickname here says it all, POSITIVE always and in everything she does. Always positive to her friends here with favs, features, friendly words, DD suggestions. Sharing everything she knows about photography by now, and believe me, that's a lot! A perfect angelic daughter/sis for a lot of us here. I'm sure

This is a lady who's language is LOVE. Look at her journals and you know what I mean.

And on top she features loads in each single journal. A real sweetheart angel for sure!
1. Adi-Emus suggested by Nameda
Adam is a kind guy who features regularly in his journals, leaves very kind and often helpful comments. He is there when someone needs him, and supports unknown deviants and helps them to get some more attention. He is there when a friend is in need. He also regularly suggests new Angels, as only true Angels would do and from this week on he is also a brand new Gangster of Love.
2. azieser suggested by vivalamonica
Allan really means a lot for many deviants here, and not only because of his always nice words, but also by donating subscriptions. He will help you in any way and is always there to cheer you up. He dedicates his whole day to dA by commenting and faving loads. He will never put anybody down, he cares for all his friends equally. And that is what's making him a true angel, respected by everyone.
3. CozyComfyCouch suggested by VictorianPrincess
Maria is a wonderful, friendly and caring person. She answers most of her comments and thanks for their faves. She is always there for anyone who needs help despite her hard familial situation. She always offer kind words to everyone and supports her friends and watchers by faving a lot. She regularly does journal and news features and she does interviews with other deviants to introduce their art to others.
1. dandelgrosso suggested by Nameda
"Daniele is a fantastic nature photographer, specialized in macro shots, and is now the Gallery Director for this category. Which means that he shares more than ever before all of his knowledge with all of us that are interested and have questions. He also provides us with links to useful tutorials to get started, and is always there with features for those that he thinks that deserve some more exposure. Also he is always there with a thank you, a nice comment, and with useful critiques on your deviations. He is a great guy, and for sure having the right spirit to keep this an ART site, without forgetting about the important community and friendship part."
2. Luke-ro suggested by Wimley
Luca is a great artist himself, but more than that... He's quite famous for his regular "Hidden Talent Features" (# 68 out now !!). He supports all artists, and mostly those that are really good, but are a bit forgotten by, or new to our community. He gives them the features they deserve to gain some more visitors and friends. He also provides us in his journal with useful links to important articles and journals that concern all of us here. An angel for sure...
3. Lauraest suggested by FireOpal14
"She is always very helpful. Her journal is full of ongoing contests, she makes stamps and avatars for people who need them or ask her. She usually features random deviants most weeks in her journal. If she hears about someone who has had an accident or needs help or support of any kind she sends out a new journal featuring them. She is such a caring, supportive, thoughtful person and really deserves this award."
1. Lilyas suggested by Nameda
Lily is an exceptional deviant. She features people not only in her journal, but occasionally puts art of fellow deviants into her gallery and uses her popularity the way that the featured artists gets tons of attention through this gallery feature. Beside her own brilliant art, she offers stock, free CSS designs and is allways there with kind words and valuable tips on your artworks to help you to get a better artist!! And as if that wouldnt be enough already she holds chats and runs the Top Artist Directory, where absolutely amazing artists are listed, well known prized artists side by side with yet hidden jewels. She truly is an angel who does contribute a lot to this community!
2. lostknightkg suggested by WildWinyan
Kris is a very active member on DA and even when he is too busy with life he still stops in to make features which he does weekly. He is also a big supporter of so many artists. In one section of his journal he promotes new members where he thinks they are promising and he tries to get them as much attention as he can. He is known to give tips to fellow deviants, and guide those artwise who are still learning.
3. photonig suggested by viva100 and Wimley
Nigel is probably the most controverted guy on dA at the moment, flooding us with his sometimes ridiculous, old-fashion, or just rude humour, like a real old-fart English gentleman only can. But... most of all, and people that know him better know very well, behind that "fašade", hides a very caring, sensitive, helpful, sharing knowledge guy. And above this, he recently started his fantastic The Knowledge project, where artists around dA can share their knowledge about all kinds of art. Go take a look at his page, have a good laugh, and discover a sarcastic, cynical, but for sure a caring, sensitive angel that makes this site a place to share LIFE (art, happiness, humour, but also bad moments).
1. yamiyalo suggested by hellfirediva
Kirk is what they call the "background" guy that can do miracles. He's there with a lot of advice for everyone, features, subscriptions for contest winners,... And without shouting on a table to gain more popularity for himself. His most recent angelic deed was helping someone very dear and appreciated here, when terribly in need. He found the way to engage a lot of people here to for once not think about page views, and not even art, but help someone out, and give a chance again. He brought our community here together to become a real, caring FAMILY. Full of angels...
2. Hannadeva suggested by Wimley
Hanna is an 18-year old girl from Deva, Romania. She's a very aspiring photographer, and improving with every new work she uploads. I guess she got a lot of inspiration in the mass features she regularly does, always neatly chosen by theme. You sure must read her news articles. She also brings under attention some new artists she discovered lately with every journal update she does. Even now without subscription she tries to support as many as possible. Go give this angel a big hug and kiss!
3. matt-h-mitchell suggested by CindeeRoo and splink
Matt is a kind, thoughtful, community loving person. He features loads of people and contest winners, has always a kind word for everyone, answers all comments, and is often seen to cheer up fellow deviants. He has a good sense of English humour, which makes him a fantastic lad angel to have around here.
1. JunkbyJen suggested by Docali and Nameda
Jen is one of the very nice persons on DA. She is very responsible and sympathetic person, which tries to help where ever she can. She does a lot for her fellow deviants and dA. Not to mention what she does already through being a Digital Gallery Moderator. Also many deviants know and love her wonderful projects: Birthday Board, Digital Thumbshare, Friday Favorites, and last but not least Think Pink , the yearly contest in celebration Jen's years as a breast cancer survivor. For every entrance she sacrifices a sum of money, which after ending of contest is passed to the Susan G Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. Unfortunately, now the cancer did return to her. Jen we are here for you with our thoughts, love and prayers.
2. magnusti78 suggested by Annissina and Nameda
Satu is a very sweet lady who always encourages others to keep trying, even when they have already given up. Even though she may have her personal problems, she never refuses to help people, on whatever topic, especially fractaling. She is actually always ready to help out. Satu might not be one of the most famous people around here, but she is adored by many! She supports everyone, even if they're new to dA, which is somewhat rare. Satu is not only an awesome fractal artist, but also a wonderful friend when you come to know her better, a true angel!
3. on request of the awarded I removed any naming. She doesn't want to be named and stay an angel incognito. I am very sad to have to remove, but I have to follow the request.
1. signmeupscotty suggested by Adi-Emus and Nameda
He does great efforts to help us meet and brings together a lot of great dA ARTists and just friends. To make this possible, he is holding monthly contests (open for everyone, regardless skills or whatever), pays from his own pocket 3month subs as an award, and meanwhile features a lot of fellow deviants and gives advices in a very pleasant and friendly manner.All his journals show us a great willing to support as many as possible. Features, articles, links to interesting news, contests... Marcus is an angel for this community for sure and brings us a bit closer to (ART) heaven!
2. renatoart suggested by David-A-Wagner and glunac
We would like to nominate Renato, because month after month he unselfishly gives everyone the chance to be featured on his journals. He asks nothing in return & he promotes everyone who sends in their submissions. Plus, he's just a very nice person with nothing to hide. Renato frequently comments and faves deviations and always thanks people for faves. We all should be honoured to count him as our friend.
3. cosfrog suggested by oibyrd
This man is an absolute MUST in the angels department on dA. He supports every project, club and account. He has never shown even a hint of ego and has ALWAYS been very warm and communicative with his watchers. Something I think a lot of us forget about. Talking and commenting back and forth is what this place is all about. He does so brilliantly and gets involved and is just downright charming and making you feel like family.
And now being a GD, it's not only about being a good friend, but also being a perfect guide to make us all better artists too.
Bi- monthly from here on
1. StamatisGR suggested by FioReLLo & Nameda
Stamatis is always extremely supportive for his fellow deviants by always commenting and giving uplifting comments. He supports in his journal, almost on a daily basis, artists with low pageviews and that deserve more publicity, projects/contests that are up and running, and notices us about deviants that are in need of help. He spends a lot of his time and effort on dA wholeheartedly. When you read the description of the Angel Without Wings Award you'll understand why he deserves it. And since last week he is also a gangster of Love.
2. TerrorCookie suggested by EndlessVox
She reguarly features people in her journals and she's very helpful in helping people figure out how to do things here on DA. Also with other things like language and spelling errors on deviations/journals. She's also very active in the message boards. I believe that she deserves the AWW Award beacause she makes the DA community a better place by being an open, honest, and postive person.
3. Irena-N-Photography suggested by Cmac13 hellfirediva & Wimley
"Wormsy" is one of those persons here that make it a warm good place to be. She's part of "The Best Kept Secret" project, where together with some others they feature deviants with less than 5.000 pageviews, but really deserve more attention. Her journals and comments are always with a giggle and some humour, not just dry stuff, and full of hints and tips to improve the whole community. And improve yourself as an artist, and even better person by bringing under attention many charity projects. And not to forget... a fantastic photographer that can teach us a lot!!
1. AussieSteve1961 suggested by FireflyPhotosAust & DrewHopper
Steve does a lot of manipulation work and has recently purchased a DSLR so that he can learn photography. I have always found him to be pleasant, extremely friendly and very helpful. In fact he will go out of his way to help others on dA. When I was having problems with my pc and IE he would research matters and email me suggested solutions to the problems. He has been an enormous help to me in learning how to use photoshop. Steve recently created this to help raise money for the victims of the bush fires in Victoria. I know that he often donates subscriptions to other deviants that can not afford them. Steve also offers lots of encouragement to other deviants.
2. VelcrowEriol suggested by Wimley
Krzysztof is an 18-old guy from Poland, and relatively new here on dA (9 months), but ooohh so active already. Read his journals and you'll see weekly mass features, without even a trace of self-promotion. He's always there with a thank you, a friendly word, and offers help without you even ask. For clubs, to help them administer, but also for fellow deviants...
This is sure the kinda people we need here to keep it the wonderful community it is.
May you stay long among us mate!
3. ProdromosK suggested by MountainShots & Nameda
Prodromos is a photographer from Greece and only 8 months on dA. But... sharing besides his wonderful work (check his gallery!!), also sharing his knowledge with cosntructive critiques, contructive comments in the clubs on how to organize things, suggestions. A "dream-member" to have nearby.
Besides that his journals are full of features all kinds (he even featured AWW without being a Gangster!), and without any self-promotion or trying to get in the spotlights.
Great deviant angel to have around!
1. Moepling suggested by addictedcookie
Thomas is an amazing macro photographer and tries to help everyone with word and deed. If someone ask him for advice, he willingly gives it and helps to find a solution. He answers all his comments and features a lot of artists, makes regular news articles and is just holding his first contest. He features contest winners, and features clubs he thinks should get some more attention and members. A very nice and friendly angel for sure!
2. Tricia-Danby suggested by RowanLewgalon
Tricia is always ready to give advice to fellow deviants in need, might that be personal or dA-concerning advice. Tricia has a nice word for everyone and besides that, she answers every comment that is given to her. In a quite frequently way she features other deviants in her journal and focuses on those who are not that blessed with faves. A sweet Angel indeed!
3. DWALKER1047 suggested by AnnaKirsten
Deb Walker is dedicated to dA and keen to uphold its best standards. She is an example to members of the site in her conduct and her enthusiasm. She loves to feature the artwork of other people, bringing to them more exposure. She also enjoys carrying out interviews of artists who show expertise in their field, and who often have interesting stories behind the scenes. She is a warm-hearted person and someone I would like to recommend for her inter-activity and positive attitudes, always there to help others along the way.
