KiwiCocktail is already an angel in her own rite. 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 makes an excellent AWW!

Sea Life by KiwiCocktail  Vaporeon: Colored by KiwiCocktail   Tales from the VicinityThere's this guy
who had a girl,
yet he never
appreciated her
like he should have
One time,
he betrayed her
and it was over
Now she's gone
but is still on his mind
He wants her back.
And there is a girl
She loves a guy
who doesn't deserve her
He makes her cry
and every day,
she sees couples
who have it
so much easier
She wants to be with him
yet deep down,
she knows...
she would be happier
without him in her life.
There's a man, too
his heart like a stone
There's only one person
who really, truly
understands him
He is unhappy
and selfish, except
when it comes to her
That's why
he has no idea...
that another person,
his wife,
is planning
to leave him.
We also see a woman
who is a mother
without someone to take care of
She has lost a part of her,
feels astray
But is trying to find herself
through the wrong methods.
There is a guy
lost in the obstacle course
of fate
He has lost so much
and is relying
on the only good thing
remaining is his life
to get him throu

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

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

Its time for DeviantArt's #1 DD suggester to receive her very own pair of Wings! With four (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' folder, 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, the front page, the favorites of other deviants and from just using a random search; 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 and whenever you can to give happiness and attention to others.

While she's not suggesting a DD, she's a wonderful friend who gives uplifting and encouraging comments. She's a deviant worthy enough to gain her wings.

Julie is a beautiful soul who makes it clear on a daily basis how important the community is to her. 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.
