Asuka Evangelion color illustration sketch step by step

How to paint Asuka from Evangelion.  Asuka Evangelion color illustration sketch step by step.  Evangelion was one of my favorite Anime show when I was younger, how could I not love it.  Super cool robots, great story line even though it is kinda weird, and cute female lead characters.  Well, I used to like Rei Ayanami, but now that I think about it long enough.  I think Rei has issues, big issue like personality disorder of some sort.  So she is drop off from my favorite list.  Still I like the design of the character.  Asuka is always one of my favorite Anime characters, though a bit hot head and aggressive, but she is a lot more normal as a human being.
Anyway, this Asuka painting takes me about 4-5 hours.  Well, if she doesn't look like the one in Anime, it is because I re-imagine or paint her in my own take.  It just came to me.  I already have the sketch that I select from one of my life drawing sketchbook.  I scanned it in then trying to make some sort of cool character out of it.  Eva just came to mind, because of the post possibly.
So I begin rough out the red color over the female anatomy sketch.  Then add Asuka's costume design line work.  Then I paint over the line.  **A lot of you guys ask me if I paint over the line, YES, I do.  I always paint over the line and try to make all the line disappear.  But half the time I like to leave some lines in on purpose to make it look rough, loose and unfinished appearance.

Here is a hair color fixed version because she suppose to have orange hair. But really, I like the blonde version better, it's more realistic.
