It’s kind of unexpected how I actually woke early for once, and without help from my phone’s alarm. Around seven-thirty in fact, whereas my alarm for the weekend is nominally set for nine-thirty. It was definitely a nice feeling, though I won’t claim to actually being able to use those extra morning hours well — indeed, I immediately found myself distracted by browsing 2ch for Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 details, and trying to sift the truth from the made-up stuff (which was pretty hard). A booklet given during the overnight screening eventually surfaced, confirming which detail really was in the movie, but that came sometime during the afternoon. The hours leading to that however… ah, it was an exercise in patience, particularly when you get whining and raging on the massive changes the movie brought to the EVA canon in-between.
I can’t believe these “fans” are as old as I am… Was I the only one that aged gracefully? Or are the whiny and bitter grognards the most noisy at it?
Aside from that, I was able to do something productive, or rather build upon what I was doing yesterday. The result is what you can see below: the sort-of completed solo of Shiina Remi, ready to be slotted in with the rest of the stampede. I didn’t go with a bare outline this time around, and opted for including the base colors. It was the only way to showcase how… green, her general color scheme is. Hey, I didn’t choose it!
Green and yellow… Mmm, I’m reminded of lemons for some reason.
With this, I guess I’m a little bit closer to what I want. Now I just need to work on general composition and, who knows? I might just be able to post SOMETHING finished before New Years, yes?
