Wacom Tablets 2006-12-13 13:32:44


Back in October, we surprised a few artists with Wacom tablets and requested for artists in need of tablets to contact me, in case we had another giveaway. My inbox was FLOODED with requests, so I made a list and am no longer taking requests at the moment.

I've since attempted to wrangle free promotional tablets from Wacom, to no avail. I did, however, get a bulk discount... So I've ordered A LOT of tablets. To celebrate the season of giving and say "thanks" to some of the people who help make NG what it is, I'll be sending Intuos3 tablets to the following artists:

altffour, ARMY-ranger, AsthmaticHamster, BoMToons, Kenney, EviLudy, Luis, Matzerath, Misterho, MrNinya, RobFeldman, SheriffBenson, squeakytoad, The-Super-Flash-Bros, TLG-Media and Toonimated!

You're the best community a site like us could ask for and we think of each and every one of you as part of the team. As the site grows, we're going to continue finding bigger and better ways to support all of you as you have supported us in good times and in bad. The NG community collectively produces some of the best entertainment on the web and we're just warming up! There are a lot of big plans for 2007, starting with the long-awaited launch of the redesign. Until then, enjoy the final months of the old NG. :)

This past week, RubberNinja's work appeared on national Australian television! The show is called Good Game and airs on ABC2. You can download the full December 12th episode on-line at http://www.abc.net.au/goodgame. I regret not announcing this BEFORE the show aired.

If you're a musician, be sure to check out the December Audio Contest!

If you're an artist, there's only two days left until the end of the current art contest!

I intend to release Pixel Puncher within a week after the launch of the redesign. Fingers crossed. :)

Yeah. In orderto release in 2006, we would have had to chop it up and release pieces. We're trying to release with a more complete package.

Congrats to everyone that got a tablet! That's awesome. :)

I keep fucking up the inking of my art contest entry. >:( I'm not worried about winning (so many great entries) but I'd like to finish one of my little doodles for once.

By him saying "final months", it does sound like it'll bite a chunk out of next year.

About the audio contest, Tom, were you giving out prizes for it? I know the creators of the contest were trying to get you to sponsor it but it didn't seem [to me] to get enough notice for such a thing.

Congratulations to the Flash artists who are getting Wacom tablets. I myself bought a Intuos 3 tablet and it works wonderfully. Use it for the greater good and share your creations with NG again =]

And you're not just trying to trick us into believing that it wont be up until 2007 so you can suprise us by releasing it as a Christmas present?

Ooh! Sneaky Tom Fulp!

Just imagine what cool stuff they can do with a tablet. :)

I see you gave the sfb one. hopefully that'll speed up the another days and we'll get another soon. I think you should have given LF one. He needs to do some FBF in this lifetime.

Really good news update. And it'll be fun to see that re-design. =)

If it was new, does it have a warranty? If it's less than a year old it may have a warranty on it and you could ship it back to Wacom to get it fixed. You would have to check their website, or call them, for information on their warranty.

Actually, this has been just the greatest day of the year so far!
I received a call earlier telling me that I was given a contract to do flash publicity for a huge website, so the timing for the tablet is just incredible.

Thanks again Tom, and NG in general! :D

Errrr..... I think that mouse drawing is more original.
Altought I support the mouse Wacom Tablets are better for drawing :D

months?? as in more than one?
so redesign wont be until feb at least... buggér.

that was pretty cool with the tablets though. it's really awesome that there's a kind of interaction with the admins like that. i'm keeping my faith in NG as long as you promise not to become a subsidiary of some bullshit marketing corp with money.

Response to Wacom Tablets 2006-12-13 15:10:44


Those tablets sound cool, but I still prefer the mouse because it's more of a challenge for me :/
