PLEASE REFRAIN FROM CONTINUING THE TANGENT THAT GOT THIS THREAD LOCKED. Common sense, folks. (Or Otakon 08 Ikari, specifically.)

Eva-02 creates a Sachiel/Zeruel-esque cross-shaped explosion in EoE despite the fact that her entire head is covered, for whatever that is worth.
Now for the unused stuff.- Anno's drafts ("tentative proposals"):
The one on top is rather straightforward, with Sachiel-like eyes and the Seele emblem on the forehead; and it maintains the "moon craters" of Lilith's original mask. (That would have been a nice touch, come to think of it.) Not much to say on the second. Third = WTF? There's, like, pegs coming out of her eyes, a tube sticking out of her navel, her lower body is a bean sack, and what's going on with the patterning on her skin? (Note on the side you can see doodles for the "Seele logos in the eyes" and the scar.)- Concept by Yamashita:
More "WTF" territory. Most obvious things to point out are the, uh, "excavations", or whatever, in the solar plexus area. Almost looks like a core and two nucleolae would fit in. But, of course, this isn't what shows up in the movie; we get the much less explicable "weird scar across the upper chest" instead.
- Concepts by Okama - A, B:
First file is big. Okay, this one is the squickiest, and the most WTF of them all. It's so WTF that I'm just going to say two things: What a lovely idea for what lurks beneath Lilith's mask, and check out the little hands.
Enjoy. (Expect Shamshel next, in a different thread, sometime.)
