(above right) I love the mise-en-scene of this illustration. (below) The last section of the book features the artist’s “rough sketches”, but clearly his definition of “rough” is quite different from the most of us.

A splendid collection of gorgeous illustrations from a super talented animator. Highly recommended.

DISTRAKT

(((KABOOM)))

Chris

One of my favorite artists in a while…

Sam

why is some of the same art that’s in the art of Yoshiyuki Sadamoto reproduced here?

Sam – Can you kindly point me to an image of said Sadamoto piece for reference ? Thank you !

fony

wow. great book.
Fan of his work and his brother also.
Always thought the illustrations on the third posted page
were done by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto.

fony

Yonghow – I think the third page is by Sadamoto.
Those illustrations are in his Der Mond book.

I just checked the image credits listed at the end of the book and Yoh Yoshisnari did the original drawing, while Sadamoto did the colors. :]

Some of the early concept art featuring the white evangelion is in Sadamoto’s Der Mond book.

With some googling I found a brief mention that Yoshinari drew it and Sadamoto colored it.
