Wacom 11: YungJazz Dec. 1st, 2008 @ 12:35 PM Reply

Today's Wacom tablet winner is YungJazz! YungJazz is best known for his Necropolis series, which has evolved on NG over the past three years. His submissions have gone through a few name changes during that time, so the story has occasionally been difficult to follow. For example, what was once Nightgun is now DevilSlayer V, and while most of the episodes are now called DevilSlayer, it all falls under the Necropolis header. The series page will help get your head around it once and for all. Here is the main spread:

Some other fun submissions by YJ include:

YungJazz has an ambitious schedule ahead of him, with a lot of plans for future movies. He is currently looking for voice actors. I've seen lots of cool concept art splashed across his blog posts over the past few months, so I know this Wacom tablet will be put to good use, if not worn out completely within six months. We'll all be watching to see how the story progresses and maybe YungJazz will be "the next big thing" of 2009!

I'll be posting every day from now until Christmas Eve, with daily Wacom winners and other assorted news.

There are only eight 2009 CALENDARS left in the store and we aren't planning to print another run. Today is probably your last chance to get one.

Check out these other Wacom winners:

1. LazyMuffin
2. Master-Samus
3. W-P-S
4. Artist-Lost
5. Falconer02
6. Anigen
7. Decade
8. TimFrommeyer
9. Night-Mare
10. Blordow


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

The creator of Evil Slayer and Necropolis you say?
That's a good pick as well, so he probably deserves it.

Congratulations YungJazz! Hope you use your new tablet well!

Also, I hate people just posting to get near Tom (first post people) just saying "gratz" or "Congratz to the winner!" Take some time and at least say the winners name

Congrats YungJazz, I think youre on the right track finally, you are straying from planning so large. Animation should be fun and not a chore, sounds cliche but its easy to think so large that it becomes a mindfuck rather than something tangible and realistic.

that's wassup! Thanks guys! I will put it to good use, that's for damn sure. =)

And I know what you mean, Luis. Thinking too big and rushing is not a good combination for me, I don't want my love of animating to get worn out because of that.

His animation style is sick, he really deserves a tablet! I'm going to watch some more of his animations.
Congrats Yungjazz!

I'd say he is so far the most deserving of receiving a tablet, I am not saying that everyone else doesn't deserve it, but he has been a unrated flash artist for quite sometime and really does deserve this tablet. Great Choice and congratulations Yung!
