A bust of EVA Unit 02 from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion.
About this creation
EVA Unit 02 from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. It is primarily red with white and orange (though I substituted orange with yellow). It is piloted by Asuka Langley Soryu, a rather self-centered girl from Germany who is transferred to NERV headquarters in Tokyo-3. Random fun fact: many of the characters in Neon Genesis Evangelion are named after Japanese battleships, most of which were destroyed or captured during World War II.
Front shot. Here you can see the four green eyes as well as the four "nostril" vents towards the top of the head. I chose to do something different from EVA-00 for the shoulder vents, and used the actual vent pieces in dark grey. Also (it may be a tad difficult to see) I used dark grey center of the arm piece (whereas I used black on EVA-00).
Angled shot of the back of the head. EVA-02 has a bit of an oddly designed head, as the backside is built in a layered manner.

Top-down view. Compared to my EVA-00 bust, this one is a bit larger. To prevent the shoulders from taking up too much of the base, I simply made them longer (front to back) and taller. Beneath the red vents on are fleshy pink hinges for the upper eyes, which were a last-minute addition as they reminded me of how EVA-02 appears after a rather gruesome fight against the EVA-05s in The End of Evangelion movie.
Side shot (with shoulder removed). Here you have a good view of the chin piece, as well as the rounded scoop parts on either side of the head.
Close-up of the head.
Picture of EVA-02 from the anime, during its first major fight. This was not a picture I used for reference, I just thought it looked cool for comparison.
And finally, a song from the Evangelion OST. This is played in the episode where Shinji and Asuka have to synchronize their attacks. It's actually a rather comical episode (and one of the last humorous ones before things get rather serious and dark).
