To celebrate the season of giving, we’re giving drawing tablets to a handful of artists here on NG! This year we’ve chosen the XP-Pen Deco 01 V2. This isn’t a sponsored event or paid endorsement; it’s the tablet we chose based on artist feedback in recent months. If you have very strong feelings about a similarly priced tablet, feedback is welcome.
One big caveat is we will only be giving tablets to US residents. Tablets will ship directly from Amazon to the artist, avoiding the headaches and shipping expenses associated with this event in previous years. If you are under 18, please get permission from your parents before applying.
If you are in need of a drawing tablet and consider yourself a worthy candidate, please PM me with the following information:
- Why you need and what you hope to achieve with a new drawing tablet.
- Links with examples of your existing art / animation (your odds improve greatly if you have work here on NG).
- Your full name and US mailing address.
- Include your phone number if you're ok with that, for Amazon delivery support.
Your name, mailing address and number won’t be used for anything outside of the Amazon delivery, unless Amazon does something with that later, which is out of our control. Only a select number of candidates will receive tablets, so manage your expectations.
It’s ok if you already have a drawing tablet, assuming it’s broken / not working well.
At the moment I can’t say how many tablets we will be giving out. If you want to help raise the bar by sponsoring this event, use the donation option on the Supporter page and PM me a heads up you donated towards the tablet giveaway - there’s really no ceiling on how many we could give away, given the funds.
Winners of our Halloween Spooktacular were announced on Friday.
The Best of October were announced the week before.
