Long time no post. The fandom moved to Tumblr. And after Tumblr's 12/2018 ridiculousness we're not really there anymore! The monthly prompts gained the name Yearly Esca (YE for short) and have been going pretty steady (wip)! The prompts are as follows:

Jan/Feb: Romance (This one is so easy. Y'all have your ideas, get creating! Or finish something you've started that fits the prompt!)
Mar/Apr: Minor/Background Characters (Show some attention and love to characters who deserve more!)
M/J & J/A: P'n'F: Light, Shadow, Darkness - (Pic'n'Fic) Signups start April 1st. Authors post by the end of June. Artists post by the end of August.
Sept/Oct: Shifting Focus (Always do the baddies? Do the goodies! Always create mushy romance? Try angst or generic! Or vice versa!)
Nov/Dec: Sandbox (Choice and allows for NaNo, the ESSes, and generic holiday busyness. NEW: Finish something you've been working on OR post meta/headcanon!)

These prompts are "more like guidelines than actual rules" and are meant to prod your creativity and to add more to our fandom. Create whatever your heart desires, all mediums welcomed! You can create for a prompt at any time and there are no sign-ups and no deadlines - other than the partnered P'n'F event; which you may create for without being partnered. The idea is to have fun and bond with the fandom. If you want to create multiple fills for a prompt that's grand too!! If you want your creation to be added to the Prompts folder please contact me/the EscaFans group.

PS: What are the ESSes? Why the Escaflowne Secret Santa gift exchanges (one SFW and the other NSFW). If you're interested in participating sign-ups begin early October, please contact me with any questions.

Submissions Guidelines: Updated 9-10-11!

Since it has been requested, here are some general things to keep in mind for submitting to the group:

:bulletblue: Submissions into all folders except Featured are automatically accepted.
:bulletblue: Members should be able to submit to all folders except Featured. If you can't submit to a folder, let Rad know!
:bulletblue: Please, please, please submit art/fanfiction into the correct folders!! See this blog entry for further details!
:bulletblue: We generally don't run "quality-check." There are only two reasons we may reject a submitted deviation...
:bulletyellow: We're drawing the line at redundancy. If you have two or three or seventeen pictures that are essentially very similar in one folder, we may choose to remove a number of them from the folder out of consideration for our 100+ other members. Please respect the time and interest of your fellow Members!
:bulletred: And of course, we abide by deviantART's rules and policies regarding permissions to use existing artwork.

(copy-pasted from the darkerthan-BLACK rules and guidelines)
ONLY post work that you have created. If you use an existing work of art, make sure you have the original creator's written permission. If not, the deviation will be booted from the group and there may be consequences.

Addendum: We will not accept fanfiction that has a preview image of someone else's work without a link to the original work and a statement that the deviant has gained the original artist's permission to use the piece.

Although the linked blog entry is for another anime group, the rules and explanation are the same. Please read this entry and make sure you understand it. These are things you should already know as a member of deviantART. If anything is not clear, please feel free to ask Rad, Nijibug, or SirLadySketch.


Thank you! :]

I want an honest opinion from you all... my fellow escaflowne-fanatics. I'm thinking about using paint and canvas for the first time in a very long time to make a few Escaflowne Fanarts for an Anime Convention Art Auction.
1. Do you think I should give it a try or stick to my copecs?
2. Do you think I should re-do some of my current works like an older Van or a chibi cast? Or do some new stuff?
3. Do you think anyone will actually be interested?

Happy to be here and be making Escaflowne art, at least once in a while! :)
I also have a fanfiction... It's called The Black Dragon Prophecy and can be found on ff.net -- It's about Dilandau.

Aaanyways nice to see you all, I look forward to making things you can enjoy.
