When I first became an Evangelion fan all those years ago, and was making my way through the series for the first time, two episodes at a time, I will confess...I really disliked Asuka, at first. But toward the end of the series, at some point during the last few episodes, I suddenly arrived at a very uncomfortable realization that I understood her more completely than any of the others.

Since that moment, she has been my favorite character of all time.

I love the subtle ways in which this fits with the show's art style, down to the way her hands are drawn. Fantastic work.

All the emotion is perfectly placed. Even in the description.
This is without question, a work of visual greatness.

Did you trace/color the original panel from the manga or did you re-draw this yourself? I always liked the way that panel looked. The coloring is great either way!

Oh, and that second link? It leads to Danbooru, much of which is NSFW. But then again, if you're old enough to watch NGE, then you're probably old enough to go to Danbooru.

Just giving you all a heads-up.

Apparently she does get taken down a peg or two. In the "Evangelion 3.0" trailer (and the subsequent fan-art on the internet), she apparently lost her left eye and now wears an eyepatch, which, as many people here on DeviantArt will tell you, is awesome.

Here's the link for the trailer: [link])

And here are links to some fanart. [link]

Asuka is one of those characters from an incredible series that you on some level can not help but have a little bit of pity for. I remember this scene quite vividly when i first show it. Up to this point, I kept thinking of why doesnt shinji grow a spine and take this girl down a few pegs. Thanks to this, you realize how truly fragile her psyche truly is.:sniff:

Wow, the colours in this are beautiful. It's so simple and yet speaks volumes. I think Gainax must have been very pleased that their fictional character could evoke such different reactions from the fans. Makes her even more real.
Favourite! :D

This piece serves as an excellent counteraction to a character that some may percieve as "mean".

All this combat is making her lose her mind, and it's so sad.

I just watched that scene on You Tube, yesterday. I felt so sorry for Asuka, remembering how her real mom went crazy from the experiment, almost murdering little asuka, and finally taking her own life. =(

I also love your coloring and the scared expression on Asuka's face.
