Rei Ayanami Sketch (6) - Neon Genesis Evangelion by AaragonNega Rei Ayanami Sketch (6) - Neon Genesis Evangelion by AaragonNega
Another drawing I finished while at work last night! I originally wasn't going to upload it, but I know I haven't been that active lately so I should at least make something! This is probably one of the best sketches I've made so far (especially since it took around 3-4 hours) and I really hope you all enjoy until I'm back for when Spring Break hits!

Here's the reference I used by the way: 3.bp.blogspot.com/_tLESWCj7nLE…

I do not own Neon Genesis Evangelion or any of it's characters.

That's an awesome picture <3

I really like the way you did the shadows. How did you do that? Or... what did you use to do it?

Thank you!

I actually just did a graphite sketch, but drew her shadow in just pen ink... Makes for a great contrast!

well...
it was worth it's time :)

Do you always use a reference or did you do some pics yourself and i just didn't realize?
(actually i didn't really 'open' all of your pictures, but i looked at them and it seemed like you used one. If not...it's my fault for thinking you did)
But i really love your pictures!
:D
And i'll be looking forward to see what you'll do next ;)

Thanks!

Whenever I do, I always cite the source, but for my own personal drawings that I don't upload I go from scratch...

I definitely hope to not disappoint!

Anytime

Ok...
And i've got another question:D 
How long does it take you to draw something like that?
You said this one took 3-4 hours; is that normal? Or did you put more/less efford into it?

I don't think you will

Like this? Yea 3-4 hours easily... I'm also drawing on a sketchbook, so erasing pencil lines can be really tricky... It's why each line has to be practically perfect each time... When I ink and color a drawing I can go a bit faster since the graphite will be overwritten...

I totally put a ton of effort into this one though... My favorite drawing of Rei I think I've ever done...

Ok...
So i'm not the only one who has problems with pencil lines. All of my friends wonder why i'm drawing thin lines, but they always have to make a copy of their original picture...
I'm not using ink, but i'm thinking if i should. And i think i will, even if it's just for the looks of it.

And i really think it's the best one you've made so far.

Right... The overlay of ink is of course permanent, but you get to remove all the messy pencil lines (if there are any)...

Thank you again!
