Evangelion 00: Activation complete! Again!


Once again, Eva 00 misbehaving... His last tantrum can be seen HERE
And again,  nothing new here, I even planned to recycle the BG of the other image of the berserk Eva 00 only to discover that I did not had an unaltered design (the other already had the punches on them) so I had to make it from scratch...
Revoltech is making a re-run of Evangelion 13, so if you missed your chance, you can get it at retail price!
Well, I think that's all, you can see the original photo for this image HERE...
See ya later!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Una vez más, el Eva 00 se porta mal... Puedes ver su último berrinche AQUÍ
Y de nuevo, nada nuevo aquí, incluso pensé en reciclar el fondo de la otra imagen del Eva 00 berserk sólo para descubrir que no tenía el diseño sin alterar (el otro ya tení las marcas de los golpes) así que tuve que hacerlo desde cero...
Revoltech está haciendo un re-lanzamiento del Evangelion 13, así que si perdiste tu oportunidad, ¡podrás conseguirlo a precio de venta!
Bueno, eso es todo, puedes ver la foto original de esta imagen AQUÍ...
¡Hasta pronto!

Hiding


I think this is the 3rd or 4th time I've recycled that sky background... For some reason I find sunsets very hard to draw...
So, the moment when the angel-controlled Eva 03 finds Eva 02's hiding place...

This time I took a picture of the body of Eva 03 and 2 separate ones for the arms, this, to make some trickery on then and giving them the effect of greater length as seen on the series... Then I assembled the 3 layers on one mutated Eva only to notice that I took the pictures of the arms without hands in them!

I had to photo the hands alone and then tried to add them to the existing layers, but the colors didn't quite match, I used some tools to try to make them look the same color as the arms, but I only managed to make the left hand look barely similar... The right hand is hidden by a conveniently placed three there XD


You can see the original pictures of this image HERE.

After that, nothing new here... I'm 2 weeks short of finishing the semester!
See ya later!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Creo es la tercera o cuarta vez que he reciclado ese cielo en el fondo... Por alguna razón encuentro los atardeceres difíciles de dibujar...
Entonces, el momento en que el Eva 03 controlado por el angel encuentra el escondite del Eva 02...

Esta vez tomé fotos separadas del cuerpo del Eva 03 y 3 separadas para cada brazo, esto, para hacerles algunos trucos y darles el efecto de ser más largos como se ve en la serie... Después ensamblé las capas en un Eva mutante sólo para darme cuenta de que tomé las fotos de los brazos sin manos puestas!

Tuve que fotografiar las manos solas y tratar de agregarlas a las capas existentes, pero los colores no eran iguales, usé algunas herramientas para igualar los tonos, pero sólo logré que la mano izquierda se viera ligeramente similar... La mano derecha está oculta tras un árbol convenientemente puesto XD


Puedes ver las fotos originales de esta imagen AQUÍ.

Después de eso, nada nuevo aquí... A 2 semanas de acabar el semestre!
Hasta pronto!

It Will Mean Victory (Part 4)






A quick intervention to stop Mark 09 from decapitating Asuka! 

Interestingly, the part that took me longer to make from this image was the fallen VTOL on the right; I used as a guide an image seen on the Artbook Die Sterne and then did some simple stuff that you can see along with the original photo of the Eva in my Tumblr.

After that there's nothing new here... The skulls are recycled from other images,  as they are very tedious to assemble from scratch...

I don't think I'll do immediately the image of Eva 08'ß shooting (which is the obvious continuation) since I'll reach the end of the scene and require the God mode Eva 13 and Revoltech hasn't even announced it... I'll take some time for me to continue this series as I have other ideas in mind...

See ya later!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Una rápida intervención para evitar que el Mark 09 decapite a Asuka! 

Interesantement, lo que más me tomó hacer de esta imagen fue el VTOL caído d ela derecha; usede guía una imagen del Artbook Die Sterne y después hice algunas cosillas simples que pueden ver junto con la imagen original del Eva en mi Tumblr.

Aparte de eso, no hay nada nuevo aquí... Los cráneos los reciclé de otras imágenes ya que es muy tedioso hacerlos desde cero...

No creo que haga inmediatamente la imagen del Eva 08'ß disparado (que es la continuación obvia) ya que llegaré al final de la escena y requeriré de un Eva 13 que Revoltech no ha ni anunciado... Tomará algún tiempo que siga esta serie ya que tengo otras ideas en mente...

Hasta pronto!

It Will Mean Victory (Part 3)


Than awkward moment where a state of the art humanoid battle weapon is shoved aside with a medieval weapon...
I recycled the skulls on the floor 'cuz honestly, this drawing was taking too long (2 weeks actually)
Homework has never been this evil! I've not even had time to open my Evangelion 08'ß!

Anyways, there's really nothing new here except for the white "motion" lines... I noticed they happen a lot in that scene on the film...

You can see the video review of Eva 08'ß HERE (part 1) and HERE (part 2); you can see the original pics for  this image HERE and those of next time HERE (saying "next week" would be a lie)

See ya!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ese incómodo momento en el que una perfecta arma de combate humanoide es detenida por un arma medieval...
Reciclé los cráneos del suelo por que honestamente, este dibujo esta tardándose (2 semanas de hecho)
Nunca había sido tan maléfica mi tarea! No he tenido tiempo ni de abrir mi Evangelion 08'ß!

De todos modos, no hay nada nuevo en este dibujo excepto por las líneas de movimiento... Noté que se usan mucho en esa escena de la película...

Puedes ver la revisión en video del Eva 08'ß AQUÍ (parte 1) y AQUÍ (parte 2);  puedes ver las imágenes originales de esta imagen AQUÍ y los de la próxima AQUI (decir "la próxima semana" sería una mentira)

Hasta pronto!

It Will Mean Victory (Part 2)


Asuka, what are you doing? D':
Poor Shinji, getting into an Eva only to keep straining his already bad relationship with Asuka, killing Kaworu and unleashing the end of the world, again...

So, since I plan to make the movie's sequence in order then this goes before Mark 09 appears... I used a stock AT Field and the rest was easy... I took the design for the pink smoke on the back from the "Groundwork of Evangelion Vol. 2" art book I received last week (I always have trouble making smoke)

I was supposed to make the video review of Eva 08'ß, but homework is keeping me busy... I hope I can do it in the week or next weekend; also, Youtube removed the review of Eva 02'γ from my channel... And they didn't even specified why...
You can see the original photos of this image HERE and those of next week HERE...

Well, that is all, see ya later!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Asuka, qué estas haciendo? D':
Pobre Shinji, se mete al Eva sólo para seguir arruinando su relación con Asuka, matar a Kaworu y desatar el fin del mundo, de nuevo...

En fin, ya que planeo hacer la secuencia de la película en orden esto va antes de que aparezca el Mark 09... Usé un diseño stock del Campo AT y el resto fue fácil... Tomé el diseño del humo rosado del fondo del art book "Groundwork of Evangelion Vol. 2", el cual recibí la semana pasada (siempre tengo problemas dibujando humo)

Se suponía que haría la revisión en video del Eva 08'ß, pero mi tarea me tiene ocupado... Espero poder hacerla en la semana o el próximo fin, también, Youtube quitó la revisión del Eva 02'γ de mi canal... Y ni siquiera especificaron por qué...
Puedes ver las fotos originales de la imagen AQUÍ y las del la próxima semana AQUÍ...

Bueno, eso es todo, los veo luego!

October 05, 2013

Come this way...


Alluring isn't it?

But considering that Mark. 09 can move it's eye in that creepy way and go around half a movie headless then I'd be careful with this gal and her Eva...

Nothing new here, I'm out of time now, so I made this one quickly, I'll continue later the Battle of the Terminal Dogma series...

Anyways the BG was draw with a combination of brushes and Gaussian blurs... It's supposed to be the Milky Way but I don't buy it XD
You can see the original picture HERE (you may notice I mirrored the original pic) and the Youtube review of this Eva HERE...
See ya next week!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Atractivo, no creen?

Sin embargo, considerando que el Mark.09 puede mover su ojo espeluznantemente y pasar media película sin cabeza tendría cuidado con esta chica y su Eva...

Nada nuevo en este, ando corto de tiempo así que lo hice rápido, continuaré luego la serie de la batalla en el Dogma Terminal...

De cualquier modo el fondo fue dibujado con una combinación de pinceles y desenfoques Gaussianos...Se supone sea la Vía Láctea, pero no me lo creo XD
Pueden ver la foto original AQUÍ (se darán cuenta que tuve que invertirla) y la revisión en Youtube de la figura AQUÍ (no olviden encender los subtítulos en español!)
Hasta la próxima semana!

Angel Tower

Evangelion 00 
And it has company!

I recently received the book "Groundwork of Evangelion Vol. #3; so I decided to put it to use...
I took a picture (Scan? Nope, the scanner would damage the book) of the angel tower production drawing and then copied it in Photoshop line-by-line to use it...
Besides that there's nothing new here... 
Anyhow, have you seen the Evangelion 8+2 Revoltech? I still have my doubts it, and given that apparently it's a limited Edition then I'll have to check thoroughly before buying it, I don't wanna have to pay much for and Eva that will likely change by Evangelion 4.0...
You can see the original image HERE and a few pics of the book HERE
See ya!
------------------------------------------


El Evangelion 00 
Y trae compañía!

Acabo de recibir el libro "Groundwork of Evangelion Vol. #3; así que decidí darle uso...
Tomé una foto (Escanear? No, el escaner dañaría el lomo dle libro) del dibujo de producción de la torre de ángeles y lo calqué en Photoshop línea por línea para usarlo aquí...
Aparte de eso no hay nada nuevo aquí... 
En fin, han visto el Revoltech del Evangelion 8+2? Aún tengo mis dudas acerca de el, y dado que aparentemente es de edición limitada tendré que revisar cuidadosamente antes de comprarlo, no quiero pagar demasiado por una Eva que probablemente cambiará para Evangelion 4.0...
Pueden ver la imagen original AQUÍ y algunas fotos del libro AQUÍ...
Hasta luego!

It Will Mean Victory

Evangelion 02 Gamma is here!
And it looks angry!
I used radial blur to give the impression that it is falling, and since that is the only effect here, this is by far one of the easiest images I've done for some time XD
The name of the post is that of the BG music playing n that scene... Now to wait for Mark 09 and Evangelion 08 Beta to go on with the so-called "Eva Q image saga"

By he way... Can you spot Eva 08 in the image?

You can see the video revision of this figure HERE and the original image for this entry HERE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

El Evangelion 02  Gamma esta aquí!
Y se ve molesto!
Use la herramienta desenfoque radial para darle la imresión d eque está cayendo, y ya que es el único efecto usado, esta imagen es una de las más sencillas que he hecho en algún tiempo XD
El nombre de la entrada es el mismo que el de la pieza musical que se escucha en esta escena... Ahora a esperar el Mark 09 y al Evangelion 08 Beta para seguir con la llamada "saga de imágenes de Eva Q"...

Por cierto, ¿puedes encontrar al Eva 08 en la imagen?

Puedes ver la revisión de la figura en video AQUI (activa los subtítulos en español!) y la imagen original de esta entrada AQUI

Mission to Accomplish (Part II)


Direct continuation of this one, Evangelion 13 just before the arrival of... :P  It'll be here this week (I hope)

I originally intended to recycle the BG of the first image, but it turns out I mixed many layers in the skull pile and it was impossible to add some effects, so I had to make them from scratch, and a few explosions and skulls flying away, we have this!

Anyways, to compensate for the weeks I didn't post XD
See ya this weekend!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Una continuación directa de esta imagen, el Evangelion 13 justo antes de la llegada de... :P  Llegará esta semana (eso espero)

Originalmente quería reciclar el fondo de la imagen anterior, pero resultó que mezclé varias capas de la pila de cráneos que impidió usara algunos efectos, así que tuve que hacerla desde cero, y tras unas explosiones y cráneos volando, ¡tenemos esto!

En fin, es para compensar las semanas que no puse nada XD
Los veo este fin de semana!

Relic



The fossilized Mass Production Eva in the last chapter of the Evangelion manga...

For some reason I really liked the image of the Eva, covered by snow and turned into stone...
It has a sad setting, and the fact that we see it in a winter scene (which in never seen in any cannon Evangelion material) makes it look otherworldly (well, in Eva universe, at least)...

I made this image and then turned it to gray scale to match the scene in the manga and used (although it can't be seen clearly) a rock texture all over the Eva...

Anyhow, sorry I didn't posted last weeks, homework called, but I already have an image planned for Wednesday and one for the weekend (assuming of course my Eva 02 beta arrives this week)

As usual you can see the original image at my Tumblr... 
Also, I'll start posting in English and Spanish and start adding Spanish subtitles to my Youtube videos, I just added those of Evangelion 13's review...
Seeya!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

El Eva de Producción Masiva como se ve, fosilizado, en el último capítulo del manga de Evangelion...

Por alguna razón me gustó mucho la imagen del Eva, cubierto de nieve y convertido en piedra...
Tiene un escenario triste, y el hecho de que lo veamos en una escena de invierno (que no ocurre en ningún material canónico de Evangelion) lo hace parecer fuera de este mundo (bueno, del de Evangelion, al menos)...

Después de hacer esta imagen la convertí a escala de grises para que fuera como en el manga y (aunque no se ve muy bien) usé una textura de roca en el Eva...

En fin, lamento no haber posteado las semanas pasadas, la tarea llamaba, pero ya tengo una imagen planeada para el Miércoles y una para el fin de semana (asumiendo desde luego que mi Eva 02 beta llegue esta semana)

Como siempre, pueden ver la imagen original en mi Tumblr...
También empezaré a postear en inglés y español y a agregar subtítulos a mis videos de Youtube, apenas agregué los de la revisión del Evangelion 13...
Saludos!

AT Field breakthrough!

Why 2?
Well, since it's the last post of my vacations and probably from now on there will be many gaps in posting I decided to make it special!

So I made an animated .gif pic for you!

Ok, ok, it's not animated in the broad sense but it's a start!

Nothing new here, a few effects of light and transparencies and there you go...

The AT field is a recolored version of the stock one I normally use on my images (like HERE and HERE)...

As usual you can see the original image HERE in my Tumblr...

Well, that's all, I leave you until (maybe) next week...



August 11, 2013

Bio-Contamination! (Part 2)


A direct continuation of this image, Evangelion 00 and 03 as seen in episode 18!

I couldn't decide on making either an image of Eva 00 or Eva 03, so I made one with both of them!
Nothing really new on this one, I did it in a hurry (as usual) to finish some documents I need for my social service...

Anyhow, Eva 02 Gamma is released this week, so, assuming the Hot Toys Ada Wong I ordered for June is not delayed another month, I'll be receiving it until next month...

As usual, you can see the original image HERE in my Tumblr

I start school tomorrow, and this semester I take a difficult subject (more like the teacher is very difficult)... Some say it's the hardest in the career...
I'll try to post XD

August 03, 2013

Mission to Accomplish



Evangelion 13 on it's only, ill-fated mission!
What can I say about this Revo, the sculpt is the closest-to-screen I've seen so far, but the QC seemed a bit off... See the original image HERE, check the left leg and you'll see what I'm talking about...
In any case, check the video review on my Youtube Channel!

Also, I've seen some people say that the Spears of Longinus that come with this Eva are longer than the ones normally used by Kaiyodo, I can tell you that it's not true, I took a picture of all the Spears I have and they're all the same size (see them HERE)

Now, as for the image, it is a bit of a dissapointment as I wanted to re-create the entire Terminal Dogma on 3D to use many times by only picking the correct angle, but it appears my PC has no sufficient RAM to render the thousands of skulls needed on the floor of the chamber (it appears I underestimated the requirements of 3D design)... So, unless I figure out a feasible way to do so (that does not end up in using ugly maps), images of the battle in the Terminal Dogma will be traditionally drawn...

So, the skulls are actually only 10 different ones, cloned, duplicated and mirrored many times to give the impression of being many... The pile in the background looks too cloned, you can totally see lines of eye-sockets! The frontal pile looks better XD

The Eva was tricky, given that I had to remove the extra chest and arms and swap the head and pylons... Took me more to do so that to take the damn picture -_-

So, I think that is all... I know it's not an action-packed scene, but wait 'till I get Eva 02 gamma, which by the way is being released in a few days! 

PS: Also, using for the first time the tag "Eva13"...

Zeruel's Attack (Part 5)


Part 5 is here (see also parts 1, 2, 3 and 4)
And I told you in part 4 that you would see a berserk Eva 01 someday! 
And it only had some touch ups, it is an actual custom made from a Revoltech Eva 01, you can see it's first pics here and the original image for this post here...

So, the paper arm of Zeruel was added by making a rectangle and the "deform" tool and the AT field is a stock design I've used previously

Just a week before my Eva 13 is shipped!
And from there it'll be only a few days until Eva 02 gamma XD
See ya later!

July 14, 2013

Space Flight II

Evangelion Production Model Custom-Type Unit 08 in the opening scene of Evangelion Q!

This image involves a large amount of 3D work, namely (and obviously) the rocket boosters, which took me 3 weeks to complete!
I used Google SketchUp for the red structure that holds all together and the top part that holds the Eva and Studio 3D Max 2010 for the rest, this due to some aspects of each program that make some things easy and some others very complicated...
In any case, the Earth at the background is actually a recycled one from HERE, I just mirrored it and gave it a red hue... Mari came out of a 2012 calendar, and she too received some touch-up (can you spot the difference?)

As you see I made 2 versions of this image, one with the Mari and one without her, and to mirror this development, I added a version of this image of Eva 02 without Asuka, that one had her because without her the image seemed empty (as there is no Earth background)

Also, you can see the review of this figure HERE at my Youtube Channel and the original photo of the Evangelion HERE at my Tumblr...

See ya later! 

PS: also using the label "Eva 08" for the first time in the blog... And the color pink XD

July 06, 2013

At the Very Beginning II



The Provisional Evangelion Unit 05 in the underground tunnels of Nerv's Bethany Base in Russia! Part two you ask? part one can be seen HERE

I used the Revoltech's papercraft scenario and Google SketchUp to accommodate the pieces inside the prism...
After that I only had to take a picture of the Eva that matched the angle from which the screen capture of the 3D model was taken...
Few lights here and there and done!

I found myself with some extra cash and decided to buy the Revoltech Evangelion 08 Alpha, it will be here this week, so I'll be posting it's review later, for now, you can watch the video review of Eva 00 and 03 from the 2.0 mold on my Youtube Channel

Also, waiting tight for the Revoltech Evangelion 13!
I saw some finished product pictures and it looks A-MA-ZING!!!
And to make it Even better it'll come with the Hot Toys Ada Wong I pre-ordered too! (you'll see some pics of her in my DevianArt account)

Anyhow, you can see the original image of the Eva HERE

June 22, 2013

Fate III


Part 3 you ask?
Part 2 is HERE and the first one can be seen HERE... How naive of me, back then I thought that Evangelion Q could be expected in 2011... Actually, it was over 2 years from that post until the movie was released!
It's been a while since that D:

Anyways, Eva 02 running with the Progressive Knives covers open, some movement blurs here and there, Gaussian blur on the Angel's "wings" on the sky and there!

I used this Eva because I recently reviewed it in my Youtube Channel ... Now in actual HD!

Now on vacation, so I'll try to post more...
Also, I've been experimenting with 3D design again... I'm currently trying to rebuild the space rockets that Eva 08 and 02 use in Evangelion 3.0 when rescuing Eva 01... Not an easy task I must say...

As usual, you can see the original photo of the Eva HERE...

See ya later...

June 09, 2013

The Beast



Shini's purple beast!
That iconic image of Evangelion Eva 01 coming from the blast the 3rd Angel (4th in Rebuild) created!
I did it in a rush, theese last weeks have been a run-around of chaos at school!

I made this from a suggestion someone made at the Evageeks forum about this specific image, so, here it is!
I used some Gaussian blur to create the firey background and did some editing on the Eva's right eye...
Also, I decided on the 2.0 mold instead of the Eva Evolution one... I think the proportions are far better...

Anyhow, I'll try to post something next weekend... Last week of thsi semester is here!

Se the unedited image at my Tumblr!

Also, I changed the header image of the blog reusing this Eva 00 and Eva 02... And Eva 01 from here XD 

June 01, 2013

After Blast


Evangelion 00 after the giga-blast that rendered it useless in Evangelion 2.0... Just well done for the Angel to chomp...

I did this in a rush... So, nothing new, bits of smoke here and there and a few light transparencies... I used a Zeruel Shito no Katachi figure for, well, the angel... I hadn't used it since HERE...

I had not posted stuff here, semester end so lots of homework to make XD
And the final week is here! So I posted no prospective image on my Tumblr as to not comprimising myself... BTW, see the original images of this picture HERE...

I've been experimenting with 3D design and the extraction of video game files... I'll be posting something nice on my DevianArt account later ;D

Fly me to the Moon


Kaworu in the Moon!
With Mark. 06!

A friend lent me his Kaworu  portrait figure to use on this one, and given it's pose, I decided this image would be best for him...

I used again the technique used last week to create stars, this time I added 2 shiny ones with the "lens flare" tool... The rocks on the foreground are a mixture of  noise, brush and texturization tools, and there are a lot of shadows that I added to Kaworu and the Evangelion...

See the original pics of Kaworu and Mark 06 in my tumblr and a preview of the next image here

Also, I made a video review of Eva Unit 02 and Mass Prodution Units for my Youtube Channel, you can see it HERE.

♪ Tumbling Down, Tumbling Down, Tumbling Down... ♪ (Part 2)


God knows what's wrong with Blogger... I had to upload a .jpg file 'cuz it didn't recognized the .png from an Internet Explorer!

Anyhow, the Mass Production Evas impaling their cores in End of Evangelion, I used many new techniques here: first, the stars in the far BG; they are not the ones I normally use from brush, they were drawn using the "add noise" Photoshop tool... Also, the about-to-be-destroyed Earth's atmosphere was made with a tool I found in the layers window, don't remember the name and knowing it won't do either because I dunno if they're called the same in english XD

In any case, the Eva (one picture cloned and edited) is not holding the Spear... Once again I used Spear stock images 'cuz deleting their curvy borders is very hard... I drew the head based on a screen capture of the scene in the film, hence it's crapiness... After that I just edited each of the figures to look as they do on the movie...

Which leads to the Evaposers quick-eye test: Which Eva is different from the one of the movie?

Also, see HERE the review of Evangelions #032 and #033 from Revoltech! A couple of figures borderlining with vintage nowadays! (given of couse, how long it has been since Anno released Evangelion 1.0)
I'll be posting reviews of the rest of my collection once in a while (until I start reviewing the Evangelion Q Revoltech figures)

See HERE a preview of the Blog's next week image (you never know about homework XD )

See ya later!



April 26, 2013

Mark. 06 Re-post


I accidentally erased all Mark. 06 posts when trying to modify the labels XD

I repost all those images plus 2 of Evangelion 01 that went with the Mark. 06 image of that post...

Dummy Plug


The sad fate of Evangelion 03...
This took me a bit since  I've had tons of homework this week :(

I had to rush the end of the image (as evidenced by the trees on the left and the ugly building on the right)
but I added those "shines" that pass from the BG as an experiment... I think I almost got it XD

Anywho, they've already announced Evangelion 13 for July!
And Evangelion Q is out in less than 15 days!

So nice I'm back in school where time flows faster :3

See the original image HERE

March 31, 2013

Air (4)


Continuing with the destruction of the Mass Production Evas (started HERE)...

Nothing really new in this one except for the editing of Evangelion 02's left elbow that ended looking kinda thin and the modification of the MP Eva's smile into a slight "ugh" (really! I did! check the original image HERE)

I was about to cancel this image because of difficulties with the chroma keying but I worked it out, anyways, less than a month for the DVD release of Evangelion Q!


March 24, 2013

Year 3: An die Freude II


A continuation of this image, from back in December, Eva 02 and Eva 02 fighting as seen in episode 24, moments before Kaworu enters Lilith's Chamber in Terminal Dogma!

I used my Bandai Soul Stage Act 5 to hold the Evas in place, given that both of them are falling, the Revoltech bases couldn't quite do what I wanted, and the limited places from where those can hold the Evas (basically, only the umbilical cable socket!) made imposible to put Eva 02 without having the base in the way...

Anyways, I watched episode 24 to see how  to draw the roof of that strange room... I have always wondered about those salt-tower-like things there...

Also, I edited the chest of Eva 01 to erase the excess of progressive knife on the hand of Eva 02 and added the tiny image of Kaworu, as taken from the cover of volume 11 of the manga...


Well, that's it, have you visited the Evaposers Tumblr? I post there the original photos of the figures before editing... You can see this images' original HERE...

Also, this month marks the 3rd anniversary on the Evaposers Blogspot!
In that time it has received almost 20,000 visits! It's not much, but it encourages me to keep it going, even if it's just for 20 people who entered a 1000 times each!
If you have and image you want me to post you can check my profile for the contact mail!

Thanks and see ya next week!

Waiting in peace...


Asuka before the ill-fated activation of Evangelion 03...
Despite I liked how the foreground grass ended I think it's far too detailed for the rest of the image...
Also, I added some effects to the trees on the back too see if I could make them look a bit more real... Don't think it worked...

The base of operations and the cage of the Eva are all 3D design, which I think I'm starting to integrate more evenly into the image (well, not so much the cage)

The Asuka is a Figma a friend let me have some pictures of (I have another one in progress) and the Eva is the 2.0 version...

A week late, but well, better late than never right XD

March 03, 2013

AT Field Breakthrough!


Eva 02 Beast Mode tearing apart the 10nth angel's AT Field near the end of Evangelion 2.0!

I had a lot of fun making the AT Field and giving it the "multicolored" look that it has on Rebuild of Evangelion, I think it looks nice... I used the "sponge" effect on it at the end...
I also remade the teeth of the Eva 'cuz hey don't look that well on the figure (the only thing I'll say the RD version of this figure has better!)


Anyway, still waiting for the release of the Revoltech Eva 08 (and all the rest)... 

It will be a long wait, despite being shorter than the period between 2.0 and 3.0!... 
Still, school has been so uneventful this far that it seems the wait will be far longer...
Anyway, see ya next week!

February 23, 2013

First Activation


The first activation of Evangelion 02 in episode 8!
Due to the time-consuming enterprise that was making the hexagonal pattern on the covers the ship and BG turned out really crappy... 
I found many interesting ways to make fabric effects on Photoshop but then I realized that there is no fabric large enough to have it's detail appreciated on Eva-scale, so I used the hexagonal pattern deformed over the silhouette of the fabric itself...

Well, I posted this week...
Time to return to my slumber...

February 16, 2013

Cruel Dilemme


Evangelion 01 and 00 after operation Yashima in Evangelion 1.0...
Let us forget the severe burning that Unit 00 suffered at the hands (or energy beam) of the 6th angel...
Anyways, nothing new here, just the already familiar water motion effect...

So, I ordered a Bandai Eva 02 kit from Mandarake and a Bandai Stage Act 5  from AmiAmi (I've had enough of the impracticality of Revoltech bases), so in about 3 weeks I'll be posting new material with those... Well, I bough the Eva because it's Spear of Longinus looks kinda cool and the base for the before-mentioned reason... You'll probable be seeing the Spear... But not the bases, haha...

Anyhow, now waiting for the video release of Evangelion 3.0, the Q Revoltechs and the Hot Toys Ada Wong...
Looks like a long way to go but I noticed that we are already halfway into February!
That was fast!

Angel Attack II


The beggining of the angel Armisael's attack on Evangelion 00...
It was kinda hard to make the shot effect without it looking like a paint splat...

Besides the many light effects there's nothing new, I used the blur effect for the contamination marks on the Eva's hand and arm (something I had used before in a similar fashion here)

Anyways, in a few hours the Wonder Festival will begin and the Evangelion 3.0 Revoltechs will probably be first shown :D

Floating to Help


No, the first (let's call it "commission work" despite it wasn't precisely that) I've made: Eva 04 floating in front of Ramiel's fiery explosion as seen in the Rebuild of Evangelion Pachinko games... I think they're called "Last Messenger" or "Last Angel"...

Anyhow, I've used again the water reflection effect I used last HERE and the 2.0 mold Eva 04 (which is actually a custom I made)

I must say, erasing the silvery color of both this Eva and the 2.0 mold Eva 00 is quite difficult for me... I dunno why... In any case, for once since many months ago I have the image for next week ready!
Also, is the Eva gliding, hovering, levitating, floating or what!?

Well, next Monday I have to go back to school so once again the week skipping, although considering that I've not been posting on a weekly basis as originally planned I dunno why I give excuses XD

Have a request? Contact me!

Operation Yashima II


Eva 01 ready to fire the Positron Sniper Rifle (the "2nd Experimental High Power Self-Propelled 460mm Positron Cannon" according to the official designation)...

This time I used again Google's SketchUp to make the firing pit, well, the best approximation I could make with the basic knowledge I've gathered so far about the program...
This is barely the 3rd time I've used that Positron Rifle, the first one was here and the other here... And never with the same Eva 01! 
BTW, the figure it's making it's debut on the blog: it's the Revoltech #032! 
I bought it in December but I didn't had the chance of using it until now, so here it is!
Also, its addition completes all the Evangelion Revoltech collection of mine (let's leave aside the very 1st version of Eva 05 and all those unnecessary limited editions that just vary a bit the color or transparency of other Evas :D )

Anyway, besides the 3D thingie no new stuff here... I'm already making the image for next week (one of Eva 04, a requested by someone)

Wrecking Tokyo III



It's been a while since I used Eva 05 for an image so I decided to put it here, in another strange fight...

This time, to create the city behind, I used Google's SketchUp... The city IS 3D design even when not noticeable due to the drawn appearance of the buildings, but it's a start...
Besides that, I didn't used any new anything on this one (most of the production time went on to making the city and it's renderings)

Have you watched the Eva Q camrip? It's great! I think there will be around 12 new figures!
See ya next week!
