Storyboards from Evangelion 2.0 that didn’t make the cut. Asuka’s face being peeled off by Hell’s Needles.
jesus fucking christ anno is sadistic
The face was supposed to peel off and talk in “Kaworu’s voice”. “Being happy doesn’t fit you at all,” says the face to Asuka. “I’m scared of the happy me. That’s why I should return to my usual self,” says Asuka.
“Držte se, odplouváme!” - “Hold on tight, we’re setting sail!”
In the Czech Republic, it’s a tradition for every high school graduation class to display a tableau at the graduation ball. Once there, parents, siblings and friends alike gather in a crowd and laugh and comment on it - it’s basically a lighthearted way to present yourselves to everyone.
And this is ours! The chosen theme was First graduation year after the end of the world crossed with Noah’s arc… and the final outcome were boarding passes of animal couples! I tried enforcing a ♀♂ rule at first because you know, reproduction, apocalypse etc, but in the end, we’ve had a bunch of ♂♂ couples and even a hermaphrodite ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
This was fun to work on, even with the time press. There’s something wonderful about being able to put a beard on your homeroom teacher and getting away with it. Also, if you’re wondering why some of the animals seem familiar, it’s probably only your imagination. Really.
By the way, if you like it, please do vote for us in the annual tableau contest! We’re the ones with the handsome hippo-man. Thanks a bunch!
ephemeralii said: Sorry to spam you but I’m excited (I was the one who put the glyphs to letters on reddit xD) anyway apart from matching piano keys, it seems like the entire thing is some sort of alphabet just we don’t know all the letters yet (and some letters repeat)
Spam? Why spam! That’s wonderful, thank you so much for your input! Yes, I haven’t even considered the possibility of piano before (though really, 88 glyphs of all numbers, I’m a failure of a pianist haha……..) due to all the other hints…
Things like four glyphs on the NERV logo suggest that they might represent Roman characters after all, plus the deciphering sequence in the choker analysis… but they might also just serve a distraction from the real thing? 88… hmm… Japanese kana doesn’t match that number…
It’s quite ironic though, the connection to piano. Why would the Angel glyphs, most likely used by the First Ancestral Race, correspond to piano of all things? I can’t help but see a connection to a certain Child here…
Here is the first Quatre Mains duet! It’s a tad simpler than the final version, reflecting Shinji’s and Kaworu’s synchronization growth (or more simply put, “friendship”, haha) as it goes on. Personally, I like it a little bit more than the latter version, despite it’s shortness.
Thank you, reddit guys!
Apparently, the chart I posted in the last entry
Corresponds to the 88 piano keys.
If you convert the runes on this choker into notes, they will play out Quelconque 56 avec A4 (2 pianos plus), the piano tune played as Shinji is falling into despair after finding out the truth behind Rei and his mother. If it IS true, then… my hat down to Khara.
Truly, music is the Lilim’s highest cultural achievement, isn’t it, Kaworu… piano keys! Piano keys of all things!
Though it would also explain a music symbol as the choice for 4.0’s title.
So will signify the end or the repeat of the entire song? I can’t wait!
Well, they pretty much deciphered it for us in the movie (in the DSS choker analysis screen) so it’s probably only a matter of time before the hardcore fans analyze them properly… if you want further details, I’d recommend asking over at 4chan, I haven’t had the time to check it out in detail yet, but well, here are some of my own - unorganized, sorry - thoughts:
Anonymous asked: Sorry but where have you got Kaworu's first piano tune from? In the movie, the melody sounds kinda far-away-ish? Have you edited it? Thanks!
Oh, it’s from the original soundtrack CD that came with the BluRay disc! All sound / music tracks from the movie that aren’t in the main OST are present there, including Shinji’s awkward first piano forays or Kaworu banging a single accord (“3EM21A_QuatreMains_G”) in that one scene after Unit 13’s… birth…

…….. had to use a dictionary for “expletive” lol No damage done, thanks a bunch, Anon (´∇ﾉ｀*)ノ
Anonymous asked: Was your last art post done with watercolor? Traditionally? How long do these usually take you?
Yes! I’ve got a lot of sketched ideas lying around my room right now because naturally, final exams make you productive in all the wrong areas… Kaworu was supposed to be coloured as well but I accidentally hit the water cup in the middle and… yeah. Thank god for progress shots! As for the length, uh… not sure, maybe 10 - 20 minutes for this one?
