The Symphony of Evangelion (1997)
Megumi Hayashibara (Rei Ayanami) and Kotono Mitsushi (Misato Katsuragi) on who would be Shinji’s Orihime if he were Hikoboshi.
Some Pokemon doodles I did last night when I really should’ve been trying to focus on homework. I blame SotC OST.
I think that certain things need to be said about Evangelion. It’s one of those series in which you need to pay attention. Need. If you don’t then that’s when the series does become a convoluted clusterfuck, but really it isn’t. Yes, the series seems complex, but one reason being is that one of the aspects that the series highlights is human nature, something complex on its own. People only boil Evangelion’s facets down to letting a teen boy get in a “robot” and really it doesn’t work that way.
I don’t think that making a joke is really reducing a subject, as long as you have an understanding of what you are dealing with.
Unfortunately, most of the jokes come from people who have no experience neither understanding (sadly sometimes with the experience) so I see where you annoyance is coming from.
I’m talking here in general, and not only your concern over Eva.
I find interesting how a good portion of the Evangelion fanbase are people who have been affected by mental illness, just by observing people who post on different sites. Because in real life we often try to wash away our bitterness with a bit of comedy, and I wonder just how many people reflect themselves on the characters.
And because of this I think now that people’s adversity for the cast has less to do with expected roles and it’s more about the lack of empathy (or maybe both anyway). Without first or second hand experience, or not having studied the subjects it touches is hard to put yourself in their shoes. If you have never had or never lived with a person who has depression, you won’t understand Shinji’s behavior and may just come off as dumb awkward teenager.
A colour practice that quickly evolved
I wonder if it benefits more from the cropped version on the left? (which ironically was the original version until I expanded the canvas)
… I find it depressing that I did this in an hour
Finally done with the lineart for the keychains
AHAHAHA ALL THOSE MISTAKES THAT NEED TO BE CORRECTED ON COMPUTER
Ahhhhh thanks! I did it my sketchbook since I didn’t want to waste watercolour paper for practices but I should do that next time. I’m glad people like it though since watercolour is my eternal rival/enemy in life.
Watercolour is tough….
