A hearty welcome to Dave Corcoran (dcorc) to the Open Critiques Forum. We know you'll be a dedicated addition, as you've been to the Oils Forum!

Good to have you here, mate!

Dana - thank you!

Very proud and happy to be here as part of the OC team! :)

I always appreciate your good critiques. Helps a lot. Thanks.

If you don't mind me saying only one little thing bothers me though;
your avatar picture. :( Don't like it. :( I don't know how to explain it but I don't like that expression. I'm sure you must have a nicer one. :)

You must think I'm so immature ! :D Are you laughing by now ? :D

hi - thanks Linda!

you realise the avatar's not really me, of course - it's Donald Pleasance as "Ernst Stavros Blofeld" from "You Only Live Twice" - the original "Dr Evil" (I always thought he should have called himself Donald unPleasance :p as he always played creepy baddies)

It's a long-running joke that I use silly pseudo-menacing Avatars, I'm always on the lookout for the next one :evil:

the complete selection so far:

The first one is a CG character I made and animated for a short video a few years ago - the second is a cartoon version of more or less how I look now (perhaps with a bit more hair on top :p ) - the third is with "Casper David Friedrich whiskers - the fifth is the real me, trying to look cool, aged 14, 30 years ago :D - the rest are all movie characters - how many can you recognise?

Oh, Gilberte! I fear you've just asked for Anthony Hopkins!!!

Hey Dave, :wave: Welcome! Good to have you in the OC forum ;)
I find your avatars fun!
Whenever I see, this present one, I think oh no, what is Dr. Evil going to say.. :evil: .LOL :clap:

01-26-2005, 12:27 PM
Hi Dave, welcome and I hope you'll enjoy being here.


01-26-2005, 01:20 PM
Mikey's fierce cat is going to attack at any moment. Time for a pleasant friendly bloke!
Isn't it funny how we identify the avatar and its demeanor as the real thing? Gilberte's new mask still puts me off a bit.

We're so happy to have you here - it's been just us girls for a long time. Hmmm.... could you be Mel Gibson for a while? ;)

Davy C! I just got back from a vacation in Cuba and here you are over in Critiques-one of my 2 favourite hangouts (Oils being the other). I thought I saw you lurking here before I left. Glad to see you here. Your advice and thoughts are always appreciated. :D

01-31-2005, 07:28 PM
Dave...welcome & it's terrific to have you here...grateful to have you here to entertain us! :D

Also welcome to Pam our new guide in OCF...PAMPE...from Montana!! :)

01-31-2005, 08:52 PM
Thanks again, everyone :wave:

- and it's a privilege to have Pam with us on the team too - one of the real stalwarts of the site - almost 23,000 posts and counting!! :clap: (she's got her welcome thread too - http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=245982 )

(I'll "unsticky" this one now, because I'm starting to get embarrassed :o :p )

Dave! I am laughing so hard--I should have recognized the avatar, I'm a James Bond fan--but for some reason, I have no idea why, I thought it was of some religious figure like a past cardinal or pope or something.

Anyway, welcome!!!! :wave:
