News seems a little quiet at the moment, so in the meantime I thought I might treat you to some fan art based upon WETA’s original concept images. This is really quite good, and may in all likelihood appear in my inbox in a few weeks claiming to be genuine WETA, as did that movie poster by Shok Xone Studios.

This is a close up of an image previously seen within a unit 2 profile shot.
Arkiel has again provided us with some jewels to feast our eyes upon. This time it’s FIFTY high resolution images of the Director’s Cut DVD concept images, in all their detail and glory. These images are MUCH better than the previous ones and allow us to more thoroughly pick them with our rumor creating needles.
One of the major things to come from this update is the large image of REI’s torso, on it we can see her lower arm and the text written on it which states, “NERV — Rei Ayanami”. Suggesting, that for the time being, her name is and still is REI.

Yes, Genesis Reborn contains some all new concept art from Weta Workshop for you to admire and thrust your ruthless rumor provoking opinions on. These new pictures provide new looks and details concerning Eva Unit 01, showing us a possible biomechanical look for the beast and also giving us a supreme close up of a previous profile image. There is also an image of the Eva Unit 00 cockpit — Throne of the Soul, with and without Rei Ayanami. The image suggests the controls for the pilots will be very similar to those within the animé.
Images courtesy of Arkiel, once again. ENJOY.
Was sent this image in the post (also known as Email). It seems as though it appeared in the latest issue of NewType (japanese edition) along side one of the DVD concept art images. The bottom clearly states it’s an image created by Weta Workshop, drawn by Greg Broadmore. I’ll let you start the rumors as to what it is.
Recently appearing in a Japanese magazine are some artistic impressions of how things shall look in the live action NGE movie.

The Neon Genesis Evangelion DVD Resurrection production images have arrived (partly). The concept art by Weta Workshop depicts Units 02 and 00 in much more details, have started the “Ray” discussions ablaze and give us an awesome view of the futuristic landcape of the aptly named “New City” with Unit 02 as our guardian.
