I never saw Escaflowne, but the lighting in this really caught my eye! I love the purples and the oranges, it feels very intense! Awesome work!
it was way more intense before, but i toned it down to not blind people *i've gotten a few complaints xD *

what is the diff between artrage 2.5 and 2?
and do you have the full version?
yes i hav the full version, i think the interface arrangement is a tiny bit different
not sure >_>;; tho it is different

where did you get it?
i downloaded the free version... but i think its sorta limited, and when i tried to use it again, it doesnt open, the program disappeared. lol
i used to post stuff up at the artrage website, back then i only had the trial too.
the admin there liked it and used them for the dvd package, so he gave me this full version for free xD

yea the free one's limited, it doesn't hav layers 'n stuff.

get the full version! it's so cheap and has much less problems than photoshop

Ooh Van! It looks very dramatic! I like your use of colour.
I still haven't seen the Escaflowne movie, but I love the anime :)
in terms of story the movie's an epic failure, but it has such good visuals that it almost doesn't matter. almost.

Yeah, movie versions of anime series' are usually more digest and probably wouldn't make much sense unless you watched the original anime. Like Utena for example... the series was strange, but the movie was the weirdest I've ever watched o_O;
