Artist of the Moment

Tarte

Visit my shop View my bio

I have been an artist on gasr for almost 5 years now, It took me so long to get to where I am now, and I am still learning. I'm currently a intern for makeup, still in school and have a part time job. Art has always been apart of my heart and it always was that "stress reliever" whenever i needed it. I have been into arts since the 5th grade once I started to draw on pencil and paper, and in 8th grade I found digital art and the amazing art of makeup. When I grew older, I found that art was all about me and I wanted to succeed in it. Many friends supported me in trying to work harder, many people helped me get to where I am now. Without art, I have no clue what id be doing. I enjoy seeing people's faces light up after I finish a piece or after im done beautifying their "imperfections". THAT inspires me.

GASR Time

okay so i've recently discovered a semi-deep scratch on my medium intuos tablet.
i have no idea how it came about, i keep my tablet on a flat surface with nothing but a leather wallet ontop of it with no hard pieces or anything (random i know).

and this scratch gives me anxiety which is weird, i feel like it's one of my most prized possessions so i just want to kind of fix it or get it repaired. so if you have any information on if you can repair scratches or even just get a pad replacement please let me know.

It looks like you can have it repaired.  I'm not sure if the pad is something that can be repaired though since it's basically 80% of the tablet itself.

You can try to get it looked at/sent in here: https://www.wacom.com/en-us/support/contact-support/returns-and-repairs

They'd probably suggest getting a new one, or if it doesn't effect your drawing, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Most logical reason is something was brushed against it really fast by you or someone else and didn't notice it, or a more rare scenario is something hard was stuck to your pen tip and scratched it as you glided across.  Something like a piece of hard plastic/food/etc.  You'd have to be applying a bit of pressure though which is why I think the first scenario is more likely.

Since it's only semi-deep, something as harmless as the zipper on a jacket gliding over it could have scratched it tbh. My tablet is ancient, but I won't get a new one til she dies. She's got so many scratches on her, but none of them are deep enough to effect how the pen glides and whatnot.

its deep enough to stop my pen if i glide over it, but i guess ill just work around it until i can bring it to the store to ask, rather than wait weeks for the sending and recieving of the tablet if i chose to repair it with intuos.
