Wacom 20: Rudy 2008-12-10 11:56:21 Reply

ReNaeNae is trying to organize a Writers and Artists collab. I've been really excited about collabs like this but they've been indefinitely waiting on the Art and Lit Portals that never quite materialized over the years. While those portals WILL materialize, for now I think ReNaeNae and the forums are enough to make some magic happen. Go check out her post!

Today's daily Wacom tablet winner is Rudy!

Rudy has been contributing Flash to NG since he was at most 13 years old. You may know him from the Two-Hour Time Trials on NG.

He was also a co-founder of the Animation Challenge Week submissions.

He made a song for my birthday, a tribute to my Luis Day Song.

He also participated in the past three Pico Days!

Rudy was drawing with a tablet for the past few years, but it died several months ago. He recently made "A Touch of Animation", to showcase his unfinished works and past collab pieces.

Rudy has done a lot of great work with organizing opportunities for artist participation on NG. He has a big project planned for 2009 and this new tablet will help him see it through!

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

I love this Rudy's stuff... so different than anything I would ever imagine doing, that's what is so great about NG. He's been around a while too which is nice to see, the old NG users that are still around deserve some praise! Go Rudy! It's nice to see people who have been here a while finally getting their due. Sometimes I forget how long NG has been around , my 9 year NG anniversary is coming up soon o_O dear god I'm getting old.

A writers portal? That's a fascinating idea! That'll fit Newgrounds like a glove and I'm sure it will lead to awesome results in combination with flash and maybe even audio. FUCK that's awesome!

And congrats Rudy! (:

About a week ago I was talking to my mate about an NG Art Portal.. and like how in the Flash Portal Pico is the star, and in Audio Darnell is... Nene could be the Art Mascot.

Who could be the lit portal though? Also heres an idea!! There could be a part of the Lit Portal where you can tick a box saying something like 'I want this to be an animation' and then you can pm them about you making there animation or whatever.

Also... Congratulations Rudy!!

That sounds interesting. ReNaeNae tried to help me fix a problem in ActionScript that neither of us can figure out. I guess I should give her something back for the help!

Today's daily Wacom tablet winner is Rudy!

Yay for him!

The Nene art vote buttons were made back during the last site redesign. :)

And YES, the intent is for all these portals to lead to better Flash.

You could do so much with the art portal..

One idea I had instantly was allowing people to upload .fla's of characters, backgrounds, any movie clip or symbol basically and users could give individual artists credit.

I have like 20 more ideas that are kind of similar, I don't really know what you guys envision it to be like.. :)

Do you think we'll be able to upload photoshops to the art portal? It could have the little genre list, you know.. hand drawn categories then digital categories, and then they just branch off from those two.

I won't be talking about any ideas until it launches and you guys see what's up, it has been set in stone for a while and I don't like giving out details when launch dates are unknown. So wait and see and then we'll talk.

And you simply HAD to mention that the Tom's birthday song is a tribute to a flash of yours.

Jesus, you even linked to it.
