A Solid Collection of Designs and Sketches

by -

With this book you get few hundred pages of character, location, mech and vehicles designs and sketches for the original Neon Genesis Evangelion television series and movie. This is primarily line art and there are no colored images and very little text. Most of the text is translating small artist notes left on some of the sketches. The primary characters get several pages of designs while the more minor ones get less. Examples of sketches include expressions and various outfits and poses. Unit One gets most of the attention in the mecha design section. There are also a few pages of designs from the End of Evangelion movie and recap film. Those who are looking for a full color art book will need to look elsewhere, but those who are interested in the design process for a animated series should enjoy this book.

Great For Fans And Artists

by -

I'm a huge fan of Evangelion, and this book has near everything from the original series in it. In addition to the characters and Evas there is also settings, weapons, buildings, equipment. I mean it has duffel bag designs, laptops, Misatos apartment, her car, the car interior, her fav drink, Shinji's tape player, it has the layout of the synchronized machine Shinji and Asuka used together. If you are a fan I'd recommend it highly and to any sci fi fan who likes retro futurism. I'd also recommend it to any artist especially those interested in concept art, making comicbooks, or working in animation. It came packaged well, and arrived early. It was pristine without any damage. The book is in black and white, not color, these were production art sketches for the series, but they are clear, crisp, and well reproduced. All in all, I enjoy it, and if I ever lose it I'd order it again.

Excellent Detail for the Fans

by -

If you are fan of the series, you should pick it up just for the info alone.

It is more than just designs of the characters, sets and Evas/Angels. What I love most are the translated notes that come with it - showing reasoning behind the art direction. Sometimes it is shadowing of a characters hair or how an insignia looks. Not a full commentary but definitely some great insight and the pencil work is truly amazing.

It is also a very sturdy cover although the pages could be a little thicker. Also, a note that this is for the black and white fans (for a colorized artbook I would recommend Evangelion Illustrations 2007-2017 Artbook or Der Mond Art of Neon Genesis Evangelion)

I highly recommend it for fans and artists alike.
