Ladies and gentlemen of the DeviantART universe, I bid you a warm welcome to my gallery! :wave:

Inside, you're bound to find items from all walks of life, from perceptive poetical pieces, to photographic memories, to personal computer work (including skinning and soon 3D animation and video milestones) and more as I get ideas. :iconthinkplz:

Please feel free to leave any critical feedback or comments on my art and I will get back to you as soon as time permits me. Perhaps further down the line I may start writing commissions for you (mostly) wonderful folks. Please make yourself comfortable while on my page and allow me to say thank you for stopping by! Hope you enjoy your stay! :iconyesyesyesplz:

Favourites

In this section, top quality pictures, artwork and journal entries are here. Also cannot forget, wonderful tools that have helped my imagination run wild.

Forget all doubt, if I like them that much, they must be special! =)

Oh, sometimes I will just add interesting works to my favourites so I can comment on them later. Believe it or not, I'm still a normal human being... prone to fatigue, and repetitive comments. Give me a fresh mind and I'll be back in the game. =)

Being the Prince of Procrastination...

  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: OCRemix...
  • Reading: Not a lot.
  • Watching: My screen.
  • Playing: Runescape... The addiction seeps in.
  • Eating: Had a Nutella and Speculaa sandwich... F'n YUM!
  • Drinking: Coke and water over the day.


Alright, so today was SUPPOSED to be the day I started catching up with lectures, but when your bedside lamp decides to flash a bright light in your face at 8 in the morning, you really feel in no mood for anything, much less working. Tantrum Emoticon

That said, I realise I still have quite a number of works to start critiquing or at least, give my thoughts, it's just a matter of when. =p

So hang in there folks, soon I'll have more time, or make more time, to check out your work. In the meantime, hope you're having a good week!

AussieDidge.

The ascent to 22... And other things.

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 24, 2014, 3:47 PM
  • Mood: Content
  • Listening to: Dragon and some other old music.
  • Reading: Cracked from yesterday...
  • Watching: My screen.
  • Playing: Skyrim yesterday...
  • Eating: Crunchy Nut cornflakes w/ milk.
  • Drinking: Maybe tomorrow.


Morning from Down Under, boys and girls; another day the sun's risen up and my semester at La Trobe continues, with mixed success as of this moment.

You're probably wondering (if I promised a comment on your work) where I've been lately... The truth is, I've been kept busy by the demands of third-year tertiary education, a horrid mass of mathematical letters and dull numbers (Seriously, whoever invented calculus can go to hell express pass.)

Feeling so useless in this regard had even made me question my double degree and whether it would pay off in future. I guess I've been in this situation before and I've had my share of success and failure in the past, so I propose I'll see this one out and decide from there what I want to become.

As if the situation for La Trobe wasn't getting worse, there are millions of dollars proposed in cuts for the university which could see even more staff cut and even more students in classes, making it impossible for any type of personal help. Students and staff have staged a strike to fight against the cuts and, for the staff in particular, to get a 3% salary increase, merely to keep up with inflation.

Not being part of the Student Union, I can't really fight the matter, but I can only wish the students that are all the best and the staff who remain dedicated to providing us as best an education as possible.

In other, more exciting news, tomorrow I turn the delightful double-deuces, 22 years old. I guess in the end it's just a number, but still, it gives me a good excuse to enjoy some drinks and dinner with a well-bonded family unit... The one birthday wish ANYONE would want, I believe. =D

Other than that, I suppose it's business as usual. Assignments, exams, homework and what have you, all part of being a tertiary student. Let's do it! :nod:

G'day everybody! I bid you a warm welcome, and say thanks for stopping by my page!

The name's David Nicholas, and aside from being a random hobbyist artist, occasional critic and devious comment-bomber, I'm currently studying a double degree in Accounting and Economics at La Trobe University. Other than that, strike up a conversation with me and perhaps you might learn more. Recently I spent four-and-a-half months studying overseas at the University of Anchorage on a scholarship (one of the largest my university had to offer), a true privilege that I appreciate every single day since I returned to Australia three weeks ago.

I also like to express my thoughts and opinions on just about anything, but the only way you'll find that out is by striking up a conversation with me, so please, feel free to do so in the comments below. I've also have occasional polls on hand to provide a bit of fun and provoke some thoughts from this creative community I call home.

Thanks once again for stopping by my page and I wish you a wonderful day everybody. Peace! :wave:
Interests

New poll time: If someone provided honest feedback on your work, how often would you provide similar feedback on their work? I'd love to hear opinions. Be as honest as possible please! :)

2 deviants said Most of the time. I'm happy to check genres, but the skill of the artist influences whether I provide feedback. :nod:
40%
2 deviants said Sometimes. I provide feedback on what really grabs my interest, and that's about it. :shrug:
20%
1 deviant said Rarely. I barely have the time or even the words to provide meaningful comments. :p
0%
No deviants said All the time! As a community, artists of all genres and skill deserve helpful feedback as often as possible. :D
0%
No deviants said Never. It's about impossible for me for a number of reasons. :(

Well, it's a mash-up of the two. Rather than look into each area of your work and give a rating, I find it much better to give a rating based on general impression.

I call it a "commentique", where I hand out a rating based on my general view of the work. I'm often pretty fair seeing that a lot of things here have impressed me. That's the reason I put your work in my favourites, under a category dubbed "To Comment On Later."

That said, if you're still not interested, I can easily arrange that. You have a wonderful day too. :)
