How to paint Asuka Evangelion

How to paint Asuka Langley Soryu from Evagelion. Learn to draw and paint Asuka Langley Soryu. This tutorial I will show you step by step sketch, draw and color Asuka illustration. Evangelion was one of my favorite Anime show when I was younger, how could I not love it. Super cool robots, great story line even though it is kinda weird, and cute female lead characters. Well, I used to like Rei Ayanami, but now that I think about it long enough. I think Rei has issues, big issue like personality disorder of some sort. So she is drop off from my favorite list. Still I like the design of the character. Asuka is always one of my favorite Anime characters, though a bit hot head and aggressive, but she is a lot more normal as a human being.
Anyway, this Asuka painting takes me about 4-5 hours. Well, if she doesn’t look like the one in Anime, it is because I re-imagine or paint her in my own take. It just came to me. I already have the sketch that I select from one of my life drawing sketchbook. I scanned it in then trying to make some sort of cool character out of it. Eva just came to mind, because of the post possibly.
So I begin rough out the red color over the female anatomy sketch. Then add Asuka’s costume design line work. Then I paint over the line. **A lot of you guys ask me if I paint over the line, YES, I do. I always paint over the line and try to make all the line disappear. But half the time I like to leave some lines in on purpose to make it look rough, loose and unfinished appearance.

Here is a final painting of Asuka.
