I just realized Asuka was wearing Misato's clothes in that scene where Shinji chokes her.

You mean the loose yellow shirt and cutoffs? That's her outfit, they're just similar. Asuka unconsciously mimics Misato while she's deliberately trying to mimic her.

The pink tank top combo in Eva Ha would have been the God Tier Asuka costume if it wasn't for anything she wore in Q involving the eye-patch.

right-click it and view background image, then save it.

Glad people are liking it... this took way more work than I probably should have spent on it. -o-;

Thank you kindly sir, I would say time well spent on Asuka's banner.

Thank you as well for the link, as the background image didn't quite work for me.

You had Asuka for double time, as Misato was otherwise engaged and missed her birthday! She'll get her turn after Christmas and New Year, never fear.

Delivery of a new Eva (hanging below the aircraft*) which requires a new pilot. Further across is the light from the explosion.

* I could never see how it was meant to take off or land in that state!

That was the intent, anyway, hence Toji's thoughtful mood.
I'm kinda torn on this one. There's not much going on, but every time I tried to add something more it felt cluttered.

And yes, Misato got skipped because of RL issues, but will be covered before I call it quits on the parade of new banners. Well, MY new banners, anyway... how many more there will be remains to be seen. :emogendo:

It's great, and I love how it includes one of the best Big Irony Bombs in Eva.

But....it did look cool.

And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

Misato is up next, but after that I'm calling this two year project completed. That does not, however, need to be the end of the new banners. Instead we will be opening up the floor to submissions, pending staff approval of course.

The actual details haven't been worked out yet, but on the off chance anybody wanted to get started early I thought I'd provide a helpful template that's at the exact size needed (downsized on the forum, so make sure you get the full size version at 1920x160) showing the various things you need to take into account when planning your image.

Sidenote, we're against using fanart unless you're the fan who made it. Stealing people's stuff isn't cool.

Has it really been two years with the rotating banners already or is that just how long you've been working on them?

Eh, probably more like a year and half. I don't remember exactly when it started.
