Wacom 16: Fierras Dec. 6th, 2008 @ 09:58 AM Reply

If you were one of the top 2000 active voters last month, now is your last chance to vote for the best of November! Also, there are less than 90 2009 NG Calendars left and we probably won't order another batch, so order soon.

Today's daily Wacom tablet winner is Julio Lopes, aka Fierras!

Fierras started out almost five years ago with this experimental piece featuring hand-drawn, scanned art:

He's been using a tablet for four years since, but that tablet is now worn out and he needs a new one to complete his master degree project.

Fierras has contributed a number of experimental pieces over the years:

But he has also participated in some popular collabs:

And he teamed up with TomaMoto to make Newgrounds Levels (love those staff pics):

Fierras' animation chops may best be demonstrated in his demo reel, and the ambitious Raccoonboy.

And just in the St. Nick of time, he posted his winter 2008 contest submission!

Good luck with your masters project, Julio! Enjoy the new tablet!

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

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
11. YungJazz
12. Five-Iron
13. FleckoGold
14. Kenzu
15. MetalMaverick


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

Fierras seems to be one of those underrated animators. I think his animations are quite innovative.


The deeper you delve, the more strategizing is involved.

Congrats Fierras!

In case you read this, there is a 'new' locklegion website run by trash, jujube and dia, just in case you ever think about coming back that is. Locklegion.com.

You really deserved that tablet man!

In case none of you knew, he's also the mastermind behind www.imagebay.com.

Fantastic, I've always loved Newgrounds Levels and how the pictures of NG staff were altered.
At that point I hadn't seen the real pictures much so I thought they were the official ones.
Go Fierras :D

Huzzah for him! I'm waiting for One Shot to come in stock, so I probably won't make a purchase until then. No Newgrounds calendar for me...

Congrats, that Levels piece cracks me up everytime i watch it. The imagery and voices are right on. Stop Crying Your Heart Out also brings back fond memories.

Wow, this is an awsome surprise. Tnx Tom and everybody here at NG. Eventough I don't make that much noise compared to other artists, I want you all to know to know that the NG community has always been something very special to me. I rarely post but I do check the site daily multiple time to see what everybody is cooking.

Thank you all for sharing your animations and games with me as well during all these years.

P.S. I think there is a page in the 'one shot' colab by Almighty Hans with one of my works.
