Neon Genesis Evangelion Art Jam - July 11
OK, this is one of my favorite anime of all time. The art I've seen for this is just down right beautiful. There is no other words I can use to describe it. Recently, after seeing the newest movie Neon Genesis Evangelion: You Can (Not) Advance, I have to say I fell in love with the series again. I even have to say, the newest character they just decided to add into the mix, Mari, is pretty darn awesome too. If you have not seen this movie, watch it, and be amazed (you can skip this first one, You are (Not) Alone, if you know what the series is about) And the greatest part of this is, there's just so much you can do with this!
For those who are not familiar with the series, here's the wiki page to get an idea of what it's all about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neon_Genesis_Evangelion_%28anime%29
Some random facts...
When the character designer was told to come up with unit 01, he was told to come up with his vision of the devil.
There's supposedly a live action film in the making... though I believe it's been set back a bit.
After the completion of the original series, the creator checked himself into an insane asylum.
Rebuild of Evangelion 2.22 - You Can (Not) Advance - Final Scene
Pilots of the Evas
From End of Evangelion (a very trippy ending that will make you watch it again because you will be all WTF just happened?)
A concept design piece for the eva live action movie
When it comes to an animated series, a good source of real life references can be cosplayers.
I'm soooo excited to see what you guys can come up with~<3!! :D Have fun with it ^-^
