Ever since I got into anime in the late 90s, both Rei Ayanami and Asuka Langley Soryu have been two of the most prominent heroines. This was due to the sheer popularity of Neon Genesis Evangelion and their character designs. Their posters and figurines filled the otaku shops that I frequented.
So it’s inevitable that I would work on Rei and Asuka pieces once I started creating realistic artwork of my favourite anime characters.
Anime checkpoints are able to get her interface headset right, but they start turning into hair bands or accessories with realistic checkpoints.
Asuka is a US citizen of Japanese and German descent. Most depictions show her with more Caucasian features. I decided to try to play around with her facial features while trying to retain her red hair and blue eyes. However, the hair and eye colours were weird in some of the styles so I tweaked them to go with a more cosplay-like approach rather than a character recreation.
