Excellent fan art October 7th, 2006

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.

50 High Resolution Concept Art Images March 5th, 2004

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.

Genesis Reborn Concept Art March 3rd, 2004

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.

New Image from the Japanese Issue of Newtype January 27th, 2004

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.
