Shinji Eva-01 by Ry-Spirit Shinji Eva-01 by Ry-Spirit
A fan art of Shinji and Eva-01 of Neon Genesis Evangelion. Can I just say... The amount of time spent drawing Eva's face is longer than me drawing 10 human characters. It took me SO long just to get everything right, I am very new to drawing robots and this certainly was a great challenge.

So Evangelion, I love the back stories about the Evas and the Angels and absolutely LOVE the design of the mechs and the monsters. The plot is very creative and kinda makes you think about life and human psychology and etc etc bla bla bla. One thing I got a problem with though.. the characters. I really dislike all three of the main cast.. :I They all have things about them that I just don't find very likable. Shinji needs to grow a pair, Asuka is an annoying b*tch and Rei is just boring as heck. With that said I can understand what the director is trying to do with these characters and showing their emotion and struggle that way... so yeah.... Anyways I hope you enjoy this fan art! :D More evangelion fan art coming up.

Hated Shinji when I first saw the show but I came to understand why he is the way he is. Plus for the most part he always comes through and saves the day, except for when he doesn't lol. This is great work again. I don't know how you get your digital work looking so much like traditional media but I really like it. Gonna give ya a watch if you don't mind.

Actually the fact that shinji is like he is makes him all the more likable ^^ I can't stand it when the main leader is brave, strong obnoxiousand whatnot (shy timid, overcoming weakness characters I love the most)
Awesome !!! :meow:

I love shinji one of the few male characters that has a right to be emo.

I love Evangelion, but I can't say I loved the characters until after I'd finished watching the show + End of Evangelion. I hated Shinji so much omg. The rebuilds make him a lot more tolerable and likeable, I think.
I like Rei the most, especially since she tore off Gendo's arm for like no reason jfc

Probably the best thing about the rebuilds though is that the creator is trying to destroy his franchise (since he HATES evangelion and his fans, which is probably the only reason why that new fanservice character exists); it's just not working and it's hilarious.
