Neon Genesis Evangelion is one of my favourite anime shows - and I honestly can't say why. There's something nostalgic and beautiful about it. Even though the main character is completely worthless and the story is bizarre at its most sane points.
Regardless, I drew the characters in my own style - what would be the point of drawing them on-model!?
Center doesn't capture Rei's blasé personality though - as that's more expressive than almost everything she does in the entire series. Rei expresses two emotions. Blank, and Pain. One time she cried, and I think there might have been a 48 frame smile somewhere in the series' run.
