just wanted to show some of my rough sketches of my Eva piece I'm working on. I picked the Asuka death scene from End of Evangelion. Always loved the demented and deranged those Evas looked like and how Asuka was just feeding on her own energy of not being defeated.
I own a Asuka figure, but I stepped on it in the middle of night while living in Philly like 9 years ago. But I learned sketching from it, it's not wise to just draw it identically instead just focuse on the movement and flow of the pose instead.
I just loved kinetic energy in the fight scene, so I'm trying hard to emulate that in the final piece. I'm not intending to copy a specific scene from the film, just like the idea of overly violent and fighting to the death with these deranged monsters who are constantly smiling.
kind of off topic, but got motivated to draw a killer robot right after seeing how dull and boring transformers was. WOW! I've read fan fiction better then that. And also how unearned any of it's action is. Just coming out of Captain America and even with it's action which is all modest, Captian runs, punches dude, but there's still a sense of his optimism and honesty is well defined. And the humor in Cap'n A isn't offensive, mean spirited, goofy or even overstaying it's welcome. That's the biggest problem with Transformers, like their jokes go on too long, with no idea why these scenes are even in the context of the film. It's amazing how anyone can be catered to every single fetish and still make it boring, I've been off a marathon of Russ Meyers and Jack Hill films and you can make a film about fetish but you can make it good. Foxy Brown is an AMAZING FILM, even if you want to see a beautiful woman, but she kicks so much ass that it's awesome. You stand up and cheer when she cuts off a guy's dick off.
but transformers, the movie is saved by a super model who talks megatron into saving the world, and then he gets decapitated by optimus prime. No, "thanks for saving me megatron," nope "FINISH HIM" in Mortal Kombat fashion, and then stupid ass arch of "Shia I love you" which is really the arch of these films, the dick gets the girl for being a dick. Ugh, seriously I never seen a film as bad as that.
