Maianami by fox-orian Maianami by fox-orian
Some people have told me that Maia, [the main character in my graphic novel project SYNTHESIS,] resembles Rei Ayanami from Evangelion quite a bit.

So just to poke fun at the subject, I drew Maia dressed up in Rei's Eva plug suit. She doesn't look thrilled about the sudden role change, to say the least. [So in the end, Maia doesn't flat-out resemble Rei. I mean Maia's hair is full on CYAN! And she actually has, you know, expressions hahah.] Not that the resemblance has never crossed my mind, but I know Maia far too well to think they'd even be compatible talking to each other.

This was fun. It's the first picture I've CG'd in a long long time that is not only cell-shaded, but also done with SCANNED pencil line art. What can I say? My cintiq has been spoiling me lately. The scan came out better looking than I thought.

+25 spacebucks to whoever can tell me what activity I referenced this pose from.

pose is from highjumping, I think.
Yeah Maia doesn't resemble Rei in the least, firstly, yes she has expressions, her hair + eyes and skin colours / tones are not the same, and her build is not like Rei's.

I know! I draw on paper all the time, with .5 blue lead to sketch and regular .5 HB to outline. I don't have to tell you the resolution restrictions I have haha. I still don't know how some artists draw directly into photoshop with an intuos3...its so frustrating.

You know at the beginning of the first digimon opening when all the kids get flung through letters. That's what this pose reminds me of.

I don't really see much of a resemblance. Not only on the hair but their expressions both. Rei is alot more gloomy

Hahaha you're right.
Thats why I don't think they'd even be able to talk in the same room together.
Maia would probably just lose interest and give her a weird look.

Funny though considering what she normally wears. Micromesh shirt and all.

American Apparel.
Their normal shirts have some of the most vibrant colors I've ever seen.
That and their shirts are just plain super comfy. High quality weave.
