So the very first drawing tablet I've ever ordered just got stolen off my porch step yesterday. Depressing. T^T

I've already contacted the seller and the shipping company; the good news is that the company I bought from will investigate and replace my tablet in 2 business days if no one can locate it. I'm very certain it was stolen, but if they need to file their own investigation for peace of mind, I can give them that.

In other words, sorry guys! There will probably be a slight delay before I can put out a fully colored piece of art. Thanks in advance for your patience, though.

In the meantime, I'll be drawing Simba and Nala and reworking parts of Mufasa & Scar. :)

Woahhhh! I am really sorry that happened to you.
BUT ALSO VERY INTERESTED. What seller/company is this that will replace a stolen tablet? :0 Didn't know that type of thing was covered by warranty

They're called Monoprice; they sell a variety of electronics. I haven't had a chance to test their tablet out yet, but I've heard good things about them (and they're waaaay cheaper than Wacom)! I'm not actually sure it's covered by warranty, but I'm sure as heck going to put up a fight! Which delivery man in their right mind thinks it's okay to leave a package of electronics outside someone's house without ringing the door bell or asking for someone to sign? >__>

YEAH WOW @____@ When I first read your thing, I thought maybe you'd left your tablet out on the porch after a night of heavy drinkdrawing or something haha. but WAT that delivery man was dumb maximum!

How is tha tablet, now that you've been able to use it? I might need a new tablet soon.. and it'd be great not to have to cough up a ton of money for another Wacom :s

Haha, I'm too poor and tablets are too precious for me to leave laying around :'DDD

I've gotten my replacement tablet, though! I've played with it on Photoshop a little bit--it's pretty good. :) I haven't had time to sit down and seriously draw with it, but when I do in a few weeks, I can let you know if I find anything glitchy/unsatisfactory.

Yeah, Wacom tablets can cost an arm and a leg for some of us. @__@ If you go to monoprice.com you can check out the specs for the tablet that I purchased. :) See if you like them! They're considerably cheaper than Wacom and it looks like they've gotten a decent amount of good reviews. I originally heard about monoprice from another artist friend who uses their tablets, I believe, so the information ought to be fairly reliable.

Good luck replacing your tablet!

Good, good to hear! When I started using tablets in the 7th grade or whatever, Wacom was pretty much the only name in tablets. So I would be SUPER happy to learn that someone's finally caught up for cheaper.

Definitely let me know how you like that tablet!
