me and george were rocking in ArtRage a while back! (which I still use and is STILL an AMAZING program!)
i'm also actually finishing up a 2D challenge for a dungeons & dragons fan site i'm part of, too. 2D is really fun, and I certainly think everyone should be doing it and posting their results, but i kinda agree with T, it doesn't seem to be the most popular area of work around here.
but i'd love to see that change! i think zacj might even be instigating some 2d/compositing action as well, with his great post in the post production thread! i'd love to see everyone getting on that stuff enough to get a real section going too!
