Winter Wacom #1 2009-12-01 15:33:42 Reply

Each year around this time we give away a bunch of Wacom tablets to up-and-coming artists!

Last year I announced a winner every day for over 30 days straight. I'm planning to not be as crazy this year but we'll see what happens.

The first Wacom winner for 2009 is aap!

If you aren't familiar with aap, here are some goodies:

  • Blergh

You may also be familiar with Gher, which made front page but never got a lot of views:

  • Gher
    Gher by aap

    Click to view.

    Type
    Movie
    Rated
    Everyone
  • Gher 2
    Gher 2 by aap

    Click to view.

    Type
    Movie
    Rated
    Ages 13+

Aap's most recent movies are about a monkey!

Aap is hoping a Wacom tablet will allow him to bring higher quality art and animation to his future movies. Hopefully more intestines, too!

In other news...

lenkobiscuit has made a call for characters to appear in his upcoming Winter Flash-Off submission!

Monthly voting for Best of November started today, so check your account options page to see if you're in the voting pool.

Artists should check out yesterday's post about Twitter skins and the Winter Flash-Off.

Hmm, no option for me to vote this month. Guess it might be cos I've been slacking when it comes to depositing my experience.

Oh wow, that a nice surprise and well deserved. From what I understand is that his Gher movies are based on a real professor who likes to dance in class but whatever is true I really enjoy his movies.

Random side-note, if anyone else wants a pixel winter logo, I just worked some magic on the pixel tank logo that Anna Anthropy originally made for When Pigs Fly.

From my original post:

Thanks to the ongoing success of Castle Crashers, we're once again giving away a bunch of Wacom Bamboo Fun tablets for the holidays.

Submitting your information will not guarantee you a tablet, and PLEASE don't apply unless you have a proven track record on Newgrounds; examples include high scoring submissions, submissions that have won awards, or featured artwork.

To apply, PM me with the following info in this specific order:

FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THESE RULES WILL RESULT IN YOUR REQUEST BEING IGNORED.

1. The subject "WACOM TABLET"
2. Line one: Your NG USERNAME.
3. Line two: Leave blank.
4. Line three: Your full name.
5. Line four: Your mailing address (may be multiple lines)
6. Next line: Leave blank.
7. A brief or long story about why you want a tablet and what you hope to accomplish with it.
8. Direct links to your best Flash or Art contributions.

Sorry for being so strict but hundreds of people come out of the woodwork each year and I need to keep my notes tidy!

Cngratulations, aap. I look forward to seeing the new stuff that you can produce with the tablet. Don't forget to put it under the tree, because you're not allowed it until December 25th!

Random side note, do you guys think this wallpaper would get us kicked off Twitter? I'm not sure how picky they are.
