Beauty and the Beast by sleepy91 Beauty and the Beast by sleepy91
Asuka and Unit 02 from the Evangelion series. Man I'm glad to have finally completed this, despite the many issues irl.

Eva is portrayed as a more rabid and beastial being, but not entirely in its beast mode. It's exaggerated hands are twisted together in a knot; muscles and veins stretched and melting. Sometimes you cannot exercise restraint against instincts. And I've rendered Asuka as a serene entity, quite opposite from her usual rash demeanor.

EDIT: Oh God, thank you sooo much to everyone who's taking some of their time to view this! The response is amazing, I'm really excited. Also thanks a bunch to Captain-Tealx and lone-momo for suggesting and featuring this piece. I never saw that coming~

I do not own any of these characters, Asuka and Eva 02 belongs to their respective owners.

From the Suggester: "I just wanted to bring this piece into a little bit of spotlight, the users gallery is so unique it's hard to choose just one piece to represent the amount of effort, dedication and beauty that sleepy puts into their work. I found this piece to be their most impressive, the detail in it is stunning, the form and adaptations of the characters are perfect and the overall piece looks fantastic."

Hi! I had always been a huge fan of this piece. It was on my wishlist. I was wondering if you do still make prints, canvas, etc. of it? I love it a lot and want it on my wall someday. <3

The overall work is great! I especially like her look, that mixture of mischievous and confident. Asuka still shows she is quite willing to do battle even in that serene state!! Well done sleepy

Would it bother you if I informed you that those weren't really teeth? Those were the staples that kept the mouth shut.
