Vat do you mean, oops!?

"'Oops!?' Vat do you mean 'oops!?' Vat is this 'oops!?' Dumpfbacke! Was in der Hölle ist mit dir falsch...!?"

As a general rule, when Ritsuko tells you not to touch anything in her lab, she means it. And yes, that means you too, Misato. ;P


These characters are from the classic anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion, and have been transformed into centaurs for Jack Krolak's centaurization contest.

(For those who don't know the TV show, these characters are, from left to right, Rei Ayanami, Misato Katsuragi, and Asuka Langley-Soryu. Asuka and Rei are teenagers who pilot giant robots, and Misato is their commanding officer. Ritsuko is the technology genius on the show, and doesn't appear in this picture. Neither does the main character of the series, Shinji: The Eva girls are just more fun to draw than he is.)

In total, this is about 40-50 hours, I think. This is "mixed media" because although 98% of the time was spent on vector art, there are a few non-vector-ish additions, like the purple "poof" coming from the bottle, and that's enough to make it "mixed media" instead of pure vector art. Everything else is vector art, though, including all the fuzzy shiny areas on their skin, the background, and the shadows. You can see the development process of it at my personal web site: my works-in-progress gallery.

I'm actually not that big a fan of this show, but the characters are cute and fun to draw, so here they are. I think, though, that with this, I've finally gotten the Eva bug out of my system, so you probably won't see me do any more pictures of them after this.

Well, anyway, enjoy!


Oh, and for those who are curious, yes, Asuka is half-German, and grew up in Germany, and she tends to switch to speaking German when she gets really angry. Her words above are translated: "'Oops!?' What do you mean 'oops!?' What does 'oops' mean!? Dumbass! What the hell is wrong with you...!?" Goodness only knows what she said after that; that's about the point where I stopped the tape recorder ^^;
