It's nothing we haven't seen before.

Somebody lock this.

Once again: KATE ROSE! WHY WHY WHY! I will kill everyone at WETA before I allow this movie to be mad.

There are tons I had never seen before there, thanks.

The EVA & city designs are pretty scary. It'd be terrified (in a positive way) if this was a 1950s horror film.

The characters look atrocious. I can hardly stand to look at them.

Maybe if this was a 'Resident Evil goes Sci-Fi and the enemies are now bigger than buildings' movie then the concept art would be going perfectly in the right direction. But nothing about any of that reflects any of Neon Genesis Evangelion.

That's odd... There were links to all of these in the LAEM concept art thread that got merged with the sticky one.

And WETA's Evas are still ugly.

I found that Kate Rose is a person who designed Asuka's look. Her name is still not determined, and none of the others either. Calm down. Take some chill pills Image

As someone that works with it, i have to say you´re wrong.

Designers HAVE to use the names on the script. Why, do you ask? Because the script is what keeps the production together. If you randomly name a character, you´ll end up with communication problems that slow production down seriously.

The only instances where a character gets a random name[/u] is when the character has no name. This is common with monsters, creatures and the like. Those names are used as reference, to aid communication between parts.

About the script,

Like the interview in Anime Insider (IIRC) clearly stated, the first draft of the script is written.

Another thing to notice is the fact ADV allowed those designs to be seen in a mass-production DVD specificly catered for Eva fans (only a person that has seen the previous episodes will watch the DC DVD).

That´s something that the apologist crowd, like AOD regulars, say. Sadly, it´s dead-wrong.

Reichu kindly pointed out the fact the name of the designer is lower in the box. If you look at all the illustrations, you´ll see the same name repeated in the "designer" box of all characters, and that beside the name of the character ("Kate Rose", "Susan Withnell", etcetera) you have a description that states their position in the image. I.e: "Kate Rose Plugsuit Front View", "Kate Rose Plugsuit Back View"...

Shinji will be in the movie (if it's made - BIG 'if'), but he'll prolly have a lame-o name like 'David Icarus' Image

But if you read further on in the article it also states that this draft likely will not be used for filming and that is just a starting point. Nothing is permanent until real directors, producers, and screenwriters are brought on board and an actual studio is backing it. Until then we can all have fun making fun of the Kate Rose paintings.

Oh well, maybe I didn't look or I have a bad memory.

As for the EVAs, they are definetly ugly, I wasn't denying that. Though I do think they could fit into a live action Resident Evil if you put some zombie gew on them.

I personally like the WETA EVA designs. I'm not quite sure about Unit 02, but the other EVA designs are awesome. In fact...

Is that WETA art in your avatar? It looks to me like they made the rod coming out of Evangelion 01's head much larger and harder... Image

I explain my position in great detail in a post earlier in this thread, if you're interested in knowing my particular "beefs".

They are close enough to the originals to be recognizable, but I still find them appallingly ugly. These are Evas, not Gigerian xenomorphs, for crissake.
