Goodness, so many black and white walls recently...well I'm still here using my "standard" colors. XD And it's just a coincidence that this wall happens to be one of Rei too...

Original scan:
Out of all Yuji's stuff, this pic is one of my favs; it just speaks to me. :) So I really wanted to wall it. ...Not to mention that Rei is also my fav Eva character. Hehe.
As you can see, I added more life to her eyes and put a smile on her face, cause who doesn't like smiles? ^_^ The feathers I thought would match with her hair and relate to the title too.

This time I went for more minimalism, after being inspired by one of my top fav walls (I've always wanted to make a wall like this - with the solid hair and detailed face):
Motoko: AFFECTION by crapmonster
Except instead of solely vectoring it, I used painting too as usual, cause that's how I roll. XD
And because my last wall Petal by Nysha featured detailed hair and took forever, this wall is more of a simple quickie one that I finished in less than a weekend.

...And I would have finished sooner, if photoshop had not suddenly crashed on me when I was trying to use a filter, making me lose half a day's work (that I had to redo, luckily it was just vectoring stuff). T_T
Then my psd became corrupt and made photoshop keep crashing if I tried to apply stuff, even right after opening it, so I had to flatten my work and resume from a png...but lol enough of my ranting...

Feathers stock and ink texture from the awesome http://cgtextures.com/ that I stumbled across. *__*

Thank you kuryuki and VampirePrincessYuuki for your feedback. :)

I appreciate any comments/favs! See you next time! :D

    This is absolutely wonderful
    I adore the soft look about this, her hair looks so pretty and her skin is so smooth. But the eyes are definitely the best. They're so deep and detailed.
    Outstanding wall, keep it up!
