Asuka Langley - Neon Genesis Evangelion by JxbP Asuka Langley - Neon Genesis Evangelion by JxbP
A relative quick painting of Asuka and Eva 02.

During the ending theme of some mech series, like gundam and evangelion,  there will be scenes like graveyards, where all the mechs are weathered and worn. For me, they always seem strangely tranquil, so here is my attempt to capture that little peace.

I dont paint mechs often, so hope it turned out well.

Ah ha! Found it! I love the softness of this painting, I just wish we could see her face a bit. What was your decision behind hiding it? Lovely, regardless.

heh, i'm afraid there is no profound reason behind that. It was mostly just because of the scene. I might paint more of evangelion, but no plans yet

Nice; captures the gust of wind realistically.
Innocence unaware of menace.
Just the thing for Halloween.

Great use of perspective and exceptionally good use of colors, blending and shading. Well done.

I don't do favorites of anime, movies or pretty much anything, but Neon Genesis Evangelion and Asuka are pretty much the only favorites I have of anything.
And when someone does the art right, it just makes my day.

Wow, you just reminded me of the endings from the Gundam 00 Season 2 series.
You got the tranquil part spot on because...ahh, it's nice to feel peaceful.

It's the part when Celestial Being gets back together after their losing battle against Alejandro and the Earth Federation. Setsuna also got the 00 Gundam that was made while he was gone. Hope this helps.

If you didn't like it 'that' much, then it might just make you a little bit happier.
If you're disappointed along the way, then just look for the ending credits I talked about and maybe watch the last episode because that's where (I think) the best action is at.

i had the classic evas in mind, and was using references from the anime. So i think its the old one.
