Because thread's have to be longer than just OP
And as a little thank you to the yukifag, though they're nothing new.
here's a shitty unpolished png, because i don't like how background came out.
The background looks ok. but I'm sure that self critique is what has kept you improving bit by bit.
Children is both plural and supersingular, Childrens is the plural form of the supersingular form of children thus superplural. It is so because the master makes no mistakes so grammar has to conform instead.
Tell me about Rei, why does she wear the mask?
No one cared who I was until I put on the mask.
>you will never blow 1,000,000,000 yen on rei in a single day
Good news everyone!
Glorious Machine Overlord now uses advanced algorithms and neural networks to upscale and refine the pictures.
Get some low resolution good art and stick it in there, the robots will make it better
Apparently this is Rei
It's just him with Rei. That's perfectly harmless, why is that not ok?
turn your back on that faggot and he ruins everything
give him your little finger and he takes your hand and your leg for good sport
>It's getting cold, isn't it?
Is this what Hiro is going to do from now on? Have a running commentary on his life at the top of every page?
can't delete it now.. too old, but like I said, my bad
Oh well, as I said I don't mind.
I hate it, as I dont like Kaworu. It is a character that doesn't have the depth or sincerity to justify the amount of inclusion and glorification it has gotten in EVA works past the original.
As a character and representation of a person he is shallow, singleminded, unintelligent and treacherous. It is a character that despite given all the power and knowledge in the world, will not be able to arrange anything but betrayal and his own demise.
It is a character that has done nothing but pervert the works he is in, aside from the original.
Manga Kaworu has more character but ultimately isn't as important as the NGE version, which is a flaw in my eyes.
The manga has many shortcomings that arise when Kaworu makes his entry.
manga is bredy good right until kaworu arrives.
As soon as it happens it gets uper fucked.
You might wanna read right until you see his face
I might get some more time work on this next month, or this one.
What sort of features would you like to see?
and I'd really appreciate any sort of input, like where it's best to place stuff and whatnot.
I can't think of anything I'd want beyond the standard stuff you see on boorus but wanted to ask a question. Will this site go by the same rules of the thread where any pic is allowed so long as it includes Rei in some fashion, even as part of a group, or is it just for those that have her solely?
Thanks for working on this btw.
>Star Wars character is named Rei
I am amused.
>you will never roast garlic with rei over a nuclear fire
We know Rei orders garlic ramen in episode 12 at least.
Run the neural imaging program backwards and reverse image search the result noob.
Once upon a time, nekos used to be all the rage.
You mean Merrei Chreistmas, right?
zOGM it's REY
so what did y'all think about the new Star Wars?
It's a glib fascimile with plot and story issues if you ask me, but it's a rather pretty one.
I particularly enjoyed the TIE-fighter escape.
I can't forgive the movie for basically giving Chewie the middle finger though.
>is friend, partner and companion to Han Solo for years and years
>close friends with Leia and the rest of the rebels
>long story together, fought in wars together
>you know who dies
>leia hugs rey instead of chewie, chewie goes off alone
Messed up. Really messed up shit right there.
Artificial untelligence drawing Rei at deepart.io
Rei lost so much of her appeal when she suddenly started lusting over limp boy penis. I don't care about the reasons to be honest, that it even happened and continues to happen across ALL of the Eva-verses is sickening.
Why does Ninety Nine point Five of ALL Rei fanart feature her with extremely large (for her) C-D-E cup breast and nigger ass ? It's not even the same character at that point. The most famous professional "I get paid" H-art is of Rei with an almost Amazonian/chubby-fem-hulk bodytype.
Rei's body is supposed to be slightly-above-plank tier and that's a lot of her plain charm.
Fact: Rei wouldn't lose any appeal even if she was attracted by a piece of junk.
Opinion: In my very personal opinion Rei x Shinji is very cute.
I agree with you on this one, people often exaggerate Rei's body proportions.
Sometimes they think to a grown up Rei, and that's why she's portrayed in that way; sometimes they're just plain wrong. Anyway there's still a ton of good fanart out there (it's probably more like 50-50 than 95-5).

Whaa? Get out troll. Either that or elaborate.
>Why does Ninety Nine point Five of ALL Rei fanart feature her with extremely large (for her) C-D-E cup breast and nigger ass ? It's not even the same character at that point.
Because it's sexy. I don't defend it or agree that it's at all right, but it's sexy.
>Rei lost so much of her appeal when she suddenly started lusting over limp boy penis.
I can only assume you mean Shinji, and in any case "lusting over limp boy penis" is an exaggeration for both Shinji and Rei.
I don't see how it makes her lose appeal, it's a positive because it's done in a believable manner and was born through understandable character interaction viewers sympathize with.
>Why does Ninety Nine point Five of ALL Rei fanart feature her with extremely large (for her) C-D-E cup breast and nigger ass ?
True for virtually any anime female character, exaggerating feminine traits is par for the course. These days you even find Shinji or other male characters drawn with tits and feminine asses.
It's even true for art produced by Gainax themselves, and Rei is already very well endowed for her age.
I prefer 'correct' fan-art myself bu eh, not everyone does. There's billions of people in the world and I can't control every one of them.
>It's not even the same character at that point.
I have this problem getting into a lot of fan art, even by artists I like (such as pic related), where it doesn't 'feel' like her. It's not just body type; it's like there's a certain subtlety to the 'Rei look' that only comes through in the shape of the eyes/nose/face, but most art seems to gloss over that and focus on copying the more obvious traits like hair, outfit etc.
I'm kind of torn on JJ's direction style … it feels like it's trying to be the extreme opposite of the prequels - where they were flat and emotionless, now every moment has to be as DRAMATIC and VISCERAL as possible. I wish there'd been some time to just take in the atmosphere for a bit, especially when there's such a grand scale to the visuals (the beginning with Rey exploring the immense deserted ruins almost had a Nausicaä vibe). Still, if the naming coincidence means we now have a reason to see Rei dressed in robes it's hard to be disappointed with how things turned out.

Mhm. I was going to mention that as a counterpoint, and it does have the lonesome feel Nausicaa evokes in the beginning. However, it's strange that they rely on single people to salvage the wreckage. I imagine a fully downed Star Destroyer in tip top shape would warrant more industrial methods.
>Still, if the naming coincidence means we now have a reason to see Rei dressed in robes it's hard to be disappointed with how things turned out.
Wow the thread goes slow.
Now that the year is almost over I look at this and i feel great about myself.
Could be better if i was trying harder but still I started getting comissions and some of my art doesn't even look like total shit anymore.
All thanks to Rei
>May's is fucking sick, dude.
I like the idea too, will redo it better one day when i'm better.
It actually is poorly done, lots of inspiration, but no real skill to apply that inspiration to the work
"thats not shinji"
medicine and hospital.
I also imagine her having cold hands
What kind of music would Rei like?
Shoegaze, Atmospheric Black Metal, Classical music or Dream Pop maybe?
Rei does lose quite a lot of her charm without red, somewhat inhuman eyes, though.
What MP Eva tastes like?
Sorry for not even trying to ask for a permission, but on a whim I decided to try to redraw that 'May' pic from scratch in the time I had just to see what becomes of it.
I hope neither you nor Rei would mind me doing it.
So, worth trying to finish or should I totally focus on getting my skill better at this point?
Even getting copycats now. Someone surely has progressed
>So, worth trying to finish or should I totally focus on getting my skill better at this point?
Every Rei is worth finishing
Every Rei is sacred
i'm totally ok with it.
while drawing gives you skill with drawing finishing gives you skill with color and shading and stuff. I'se some artists only skething faces, some even draw more time than i do and they are only good with sketching and faces, can't finish a piece or draw a whole person.
So yes go for it.
But the real deal is that there are two sorts of work, one is the work on yourself, another is work on result. Drawing and learning to draw are two different things, if you want to actually get better with animne girls - make yourself work on your basic skills studies, read books, and actually educate yourself on the topic.
It's almost like sports, wanna start boxing then start lifting, it's more lifting than actual boxing.
I am sertain than i could be way better if spent less time on finishing works and more time on learning, educating and excersizing myself.
>So, worth trying to finish or should I totally focus on getting my skill better at this point?
Try to learn something while drawing.
Push your limits a bit and learn a thing or two about finishing from working on this one
Of course it's real, did you doubt our goddess?
I was at the thread,
half of it was fine, then a tripfag came on and turned the thread into shit by samefagging for attention.
It was pretty embarrassing, it is a lot better to not see it.
come up with the ugliest and least expensive model of good sounding phones.
Rei is not superficial and cares about actual qualities, not the look of things.
What were those old and cheap good-sounding classic Sony phones called?
any record is inferior to live experience on many levels anyway. I mean whatever your headphones are they still suck and always will.
but you can enjoy the melody and the song itself.
This is only partially true, there are bands and artists that can flourish in either a studio environment, a live environment or occasionally both. It very much depends on the artist(s) and what kind of sphere or "scene" they are operating in.
I know lots of guys who can meticulously craft the most insane thing you've ever heard in a studio and then totally flop on stage, and similarly, people who can tear a fucking stage in half and then put zero effort into the production process because they find it boring/tedious, ending up with a shitty album as a result.
It's strange. Music is such a unique art form to create this weird division of cultural practice, and it effects listeners so much.
I think it has to do with music releases being sold and consumed as products. No one ever looked at Rothko and was like, "Fuck that guy, he's too prolific," or, "He's a pussy."
The thing I adore about Rei the most is that she doesn't give a fuck.
She doesn't give a fuck if she's naked or not, i believe if angel attacked while she's taking shower she'd go to NERV naked, no fucks about not having any pieces of her own clothing except uniforms. no fucks about her apartmet, as long as it has walls and it doesnt rain on her it works. probably doesn't care what to eat as long as it's filling.
But she cares about people and what actually matter?
Can you even imagine Rei bithing about some bullshit you don't care about? like this is wrong color and that is wrong flavor? NO!
I have a pair of those. They manage to be flat and tinny sounding at the same time. The highs hurt my ears.
Most phones people call "GOOD" have excessive lows and shitty highs.
Actually good ones have flat frequency response and comp[ared to "good" ones have high and well detailed highs.
I just have no clue.
I have a couple of ATH-M50's I got some time ago.
Manga Rei's character development is GODLIKE, and manga itself was pretty great untli Kaworu arrived.
Rei is so cute, it hurts me
I want to be her, I to be with her
>Passionate love is the love in the "honeymoon phase", the beginning of new love, but it burns itself out after a year or two, compassionate love is what occurs after passionate love fades, it is a stronger bond of companionship.
What kind of love do you feel for Rei, anons?
I'm legitimately sad the franchise won't ever give Rei the attention she deserves.
There will never again be anything as positive and strong as the original.
You may complain you might not want to be with Rei IRL, but as a character she's being neglected far too much. The original had so much to say, so much to opine that was valid, yet that all is lost in the sea of anti-Rei pandering that is modern Evangelion.
I found a somewhat inactive Rei imageboard if anyone is interested. It's running Futaba instead of Futallaby or Wakaba so post quoting doesn't work. Here's the link if you want to check it out: http://www.rei-ayanami.com/rei/
It's more active than this thread and also allows nsfw.
Think of that board as one large massive Reithread.
If you give up your sanity you can be with her in your mind.
Yeah, poor her and the other billions of kids that got killed, maimed or various combinations of both in the Evangelion world.
I don't give a fuck, Rei Q is cancer incarnate and I wholly reject Rei Q and Q in it's entirety.
Rei Q is a cartoon, a caricature not a character.
Everything you just said is invalid, and if you're going to cry crocodile tears for this evil caricature of a character, I want to see you make a billion posts here crying about the children who lived and died loveless of starvation after the second impact, and now the third.
Otherwise, just shut the fuck up.
>Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows...
Does anyone here work with sound/music?
I'm hopeless with that myself, and I would need help to put some touches on this silly project I found on my hard disk.
I'd like some auto-tuned-ish voice repeating "Rei Ayanami" in the same fashion this video:
repeats Adrian Brody.
You might want this, larger version of your pic
Does anyone have the transparent version of Rei in this pic? I lost my copy.
the only thing you need to give up is your sanity
