Sorry for the delay, kuribo-04! I was really busy this week.
Oh, don't worry at all! No need to hurry.
I'm thankful you took the pictures at all. My (annoying) completionist urge can relax lol.
Like Blockio said the images are broken, but opening them in another tab works perfectly fine!
About the sketch itself, like I thought it's in a color other than black, like the Asuka one, which looks pretty. But, unless there's some white balance thing going on, that's greenish right? I thought they were gonna with a more obvious blue for Rei.
Also something I've noticed, or guess I never thought too much about, these sketches leave shadow placement very open. The process from sketch to finished illustration reminds a lot of key animation frames to finished images in a film, but unless I'm remembering wrongly, shadows and all details are all placed during animation. I guess since it's non-moving illustrations they have more liberty in that sense and leave some things for later.
