Evangelion EVA-01 by aquadrop Evangelion EVA-01 by aquadrop
Yes, it is.
One of the most beautiful robots ever, if not THE most beautiful ever :D

For the sake of precision, I KNOW Evas are not robots, they are human beings cloned from Adam, etc. etc. anyway, I liked the armour ;)

D'après Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (in fact, it's the cover of "Die Sterne", an illustration book about the anime).

Media: digital paint over real pencil.

Updates:
release 15 on 22-23/8/2006
release 20 on 3/1/2007
release 21 on 4/1/2007 (God bless holidays) :)
release 25 on 11/12/2009

Work in progress history: [link] (my personal website)

Neon Genesis Evangelion is (c) Gainax
(again, just for the sake of precision)

Thanks for viewing and commenting, and even more for :+fav:ing

Well... they are just like medieval knights: armored humans (even if they are giant humans).

EVA-01 is my favorite. I always liked how human-like they were, but unit 1 takes the cake. It was like it was too brutal to be anything but villainous.

So did you draw this as a reproduction? It looks exactly the same as the one on the book. I can even see a color disparity that looks like a fold in the cover of the actual book. So what is really going on? If you did actually draw this reproduction, I am very impressed.

Ok, I didn't expect I would be forced to do this but...
please take some time to a look at this: [link]
it's my step-by-step work in progress.

Not only I did actually draw it, copying without grids on paper, but also colored it from scratch with a graphic tablet and Painter Essentials.

I spent a LOT of time and effort on it.

As I said in another comment, I looked at the original closely, and you clearly drew this yourself.

Lo so lo so, figurati, conosco l'originale ma averlo riprodotto in alta risoluzione è un merito che permette a chi fosse interessato di avere un file piu grande e molto dettagliato. Di fatto è molto simile all'originale quindi complimenti!

The armor looks like hard core to render and to draw. Very nice. Did you do this on photoshop or some other program?

I used Painter IX, and confirm: it was hard to draw (even though I think it's not beautifully done,that is, I could have done it better).

Wow, this drawing is beautiful :) But yeah, I have to agree, Evas are amazing XD

I have this cool model of Unit 01 ( [link] ), and I can't wait till I build a Unit 02 model. The only reason I didn't buy it already, is because those things are expensive.

Again, awesome drawing!
