News Update...

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 15, 2009, 5:27 PM


Hello everyone and happy new year!

It's been a few ages since I updated my journal, so I'd have to give some life signs again. :)

Unfortunately/fortunately, I'm working simultaneously on multiple projects, so that keeps me incredibly busy most of the time...

So, I am working for a Film/commercial and iPhone/iPod Touch Games company that is doing some cool stuff. I work there as an art director for two of their games now, and their style is quite different from what you used to see by me. They created a special deviantart page for previews and production images to show everybody that wants a mini making of each game as they move forward in development. Check it out here: ontherocksgames.deviantart.com…

Also, I'm working for a new cool MMO text-based game called Dark Curse, where I'm making the site layouts and the character concepts/units for Vampires, Humans and Werewolves (races that the players can choose to play).

The most challenging is a big project for History Channel, where I was assigned to create ultra-realistic 3D models of the identical faces of some historic personalities, like W. Shakespeare, G. Washington, and a few others. (I was given the actual 3D scans of their faces, in order to make their characteristics with the best possible accuracy).

Last but not least, I work for the Darkfall game like I used to, making all sorts of things.

Between those, I also do some small commissions every now and then.






So, other news apart from work; a while ago I got (instead of payment for a project) a Wacom Cintiq 21UX to drool upon! So now I have two 24' monitors and another 21' monitor tablet :D (plus a Wacom Intuos3 A5 Wide SE and and a Wacom Intuos3 A6, that I put aside). Yeah it's an overkill, I know, but it's still pretty cool. :lol:

Also, one of my works was featured in the book Exotique 4 (Ballistic Publishing). I was previously featured in Exotique 2 and Elemental 2 as well.
Finally, I was featured in the online magazine Amazing Events (You can check it out here: www.fantasyanapublishing.com/).

That's all for now; I'll be around here until May, and then I'll have to serve to the military service for about year :puke: (that's mandatory here, unfortunately). I'm looking forward to be done with it.

Have fun,
Nick

New Site is Launched

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 18, 2008, 6:52 PM


Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I posted here. I've been busy with work and recently I came back from vacation. I really needed that :) I'd like to announce that my new site is now up. I decided to totally replace the old one, moving into something much more simple, yet elegant layout. There's an online store section coming soon, featuring unique artwork prints, so be sure to visit regularly. ;) You can check out the website HERE. Also, I'm going to upload some new artwork very soon.

That's all for now, I hope you all had a great summer!

Cheers,
Nick



* I will be open to new commission requests for a limited period of time; so if anyone is interested, feel free to note me (serious requests only please).

Hello fellow deviants! :wave:

It's been some months now that I've been inactive and away from DeviantART, due to intense work schedule, holidays and tiredness/boredom. Unfortunately, the first one will go on until I get retired or die, and the second one will come again after a looong time... So, I've missed of what's going on recently over here (if anything happened anyway) and it will take me some time to read the recent comments/journals/notes etc. I also missed making some artwork for myself :( Still there is (and will be) a lot of pressure in my life, having so many things to do and so little time to spare; buuut I've got used to it.

During the summer nothing mentionable happened, apart from the fact that I finally took my degree in graphic design. (:party:) I was supposed to get this 3 years ago, as the only thing left was the final school project. However, I delayed that on purpose, in order to postpone for a while my obligation to the 12-month military service (which is mandatory here in Greece :(). I also spent the last 5 weeks to our summer house which is next to the beach, along with my family, but I kept on working there. Nevertheless, I was able to make some short trips by car every now and then, which was relaxing and fun. As for games, I didn't play anything at all, I'm holding my powers until Crysis and Unreal Tournament 3 roll out ;)

...Aaand now I'm back in Athens and bored again; so anyone who's nearby, friend or foe, can drop me a note to go out for a beer or two, if they wish :)

Artwise, I have made tons of new stuff that I'd like to share, but it was mostly commissioned work, so I'll have to wait until I'll be able to show them in public (I have also removed temporarily some of the artwork a few months ago, in case you wonder where they've gone). However, I'm going to upload some other stuff I was playing around with, sooner or later.

That's all for now, thank you for reading my journal; I wish you had a great summer!

Cheers,
Nick

Hello everyone, this is Ebonessa hacking deligaris's account but for good reason. Today it's Wednesday, the 20th December and it's also Nick's birthday. He's turning 26 and can be officially considered old :P! I want to surprise him when he logs on and finds messages wishing him happy birthday. So i ask of you to spam this journal and break the world's record for "most birthday wishes given in one day to the same person"!

Happy Birthday Nick, I hope you are always healthy and smiling as you are today! :blowkiss:

Vacation (sort of)

Wed Jul 19, 2006, 3:38 PM
Journal

Hello everyone,

It's been some days since I left for vacation, and I'll come back by the first week of August. I moved in order to be with my family for a while; we have a house by the beach. :) We mostly stay there during summers. I'll have some breaks, but I'll be still working on my laptop, so it's not a real vacation... Well, it's better than nothing... :D
Anyways, I hope I find some time and draw something for myself too, hehe.


Have fun! :wave:
Nick




*Note: I also temporarily removed all the deviations related with "Dark Throne" game (DragonMoon, Throne Room, Rise of the Undead) until the final game is released (hopefully by the end of May).

Long Time No See

Hello everyone!

It's been some time now since disappeared from DA, and I'm sorry about that. I keep reading all your messages, but unfortunately I don't have the luxory of time to answer to or thank most of you; it's because I'm still awefully overwhelmed with work, because I'm into many projects simultaneusly, and new stuff are coming up all the time. I'm forced to work at least 12 hours a day, in order get them all done. So, no time is left for the moment for something else... :S But at least, I really enjoy my job, otherwise I couldn't stand this schedule :) Here's a brief list of the stuff I'm working on atm:

- "DarkThrone" - Gold Edition (mmo web game) layouts/skin themes...
- "Darkfall" (mmorpg) 3d characters/textures/icons etc...
- 3D models for a documentary series (about ancient technology) for History Channel...
- Other random commissions every now and then...
- Trying to finish my final school project... >.< (based on "Darkfall" game)

I also made some new artwork, but I'm gonna post it once I find the time to read your comments too, instead of posting it and disappear again :D
Thankfully, this week I'm gonna have short vacation to visit my family and relax a little, hehe! ^_^
Sooo, see you around, and thank you everyone for the positive feedback!

Have fun,
Nick

About my last deviation

Wed Feb 1, 2006, 2:44 AM

Journal

Hello, I'd just like to note something about my last deviation, Draconis Infernvs II (www.deviantart.com/deviation/2…. Recently, the DA staff accidentally banned it and then recovered it again. However, the print availability, as well as all the +favs have dissappeared after the recovery. :-/ I'm not sure if they're able to fix this. So, if some of you faved it and now it is not in your favorites any more, that's the cause. If you wish, you can just add it back again. I'll upload a new print version asap too. Thanks, and have fun!

Hello, I just wanted to wish to everyone a happy and creative 2006!

I was out for a week, because I visited my family, and now I'm back again. However, I still had a lot of work to do, and I will have, at least until the end of February. So, currently I don't have enough time to make something for myself, play games or browse DA, but I'll upload some new stuff that I've been working on for a while pretty soon (I guess you'll like them :)); and sorry for keeping you waiting for so long.. :-/

Have fun,
Nick

Hello, it's been over a month and a half  since I last updated my journal, so I decided to make a small uptate. :)
I must admit that this is one of the the busiest periods in my life, so excuse me that I can't reply to you all or if I reply a bit late, however I'm reading all of your messages whenever I find some free time ;).

So, here's some things I'm occupied with at the moment:
-Working in full-time schedule for at least another 5 months (along with the cool dude henning as art director :D) for the MMORPG game Darkfall, making 2D and 3D art of any kind.
-Working for several web games, like DarkThrone (which is going to be released soon) and many others, making layouts, portraits and other stuff.
-Trying to finish my final school project (order to get my degree in graphic design)
-Other random commissions every now and then...

Well, I hope I'll make it...

Hello,
Yesterday I finally returned back to Athens after a full month of holidays. I had a nice and relaxing time there, sunbathing and swimming in the sea a little...  :relax: (and of course painting=p)
In the meanwhile, I was working on some personal projects, which I'll be uploading gradually in the following days so that you have a look too. ;) (I hope you like them :))

Also, I'd like to thank all of you who faved my work or have been watching me during this period. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to reply to all of you guys, because my internet connection was really crappy and it would take ages to reply or visit you all... :(  However, I've been reading all your messages. ;)
THANK YOU!

Hello all! Today is the day that I'm leaving Athens for about a month, and I'm moving to my family's cottage, right next to the beach :D (It's 7 hours by car from here :S). I need to change my environment a little and relax there.
However, I'll still have my laptop with me and work there too; I won't be online too much, but I'll be checking my messages frequently.

Have fun and have a nice summer too! :)

Hello, I'm sorry for the long wait and for not being able to reply to the recent messages; I had some problems with my hard disks, but I think everything is ok for the moment. I have much work to do lately. These problems left me behind in work, and furthermore I'm making a new site for a side-project, and also have to remake my own site.
So, I'd like to thank you all for your past or future comments & +favs and excuse if I won't be able to reply to all of you... I'm doing what I can.:D

Have a nice time! ;)
