The 14-episode animation revolves around “auto memory dolls” that were created by Dr. Orland to help his blind wife, Mollie, write her novels. He also rented them out to people interested in their services. Later, another group of people formed a company that modified Orlando’s original work to include beautiful women with the ability to execute military-related tasks. When war leaves the continent of Telesis divided into two (North and South), the remaining survivors welcome a new generation.
A young girl, Violet Evergarden (formerly known as the weapon) becomes fascinated by the living dolls and begins a new journey as an auto memory doll. Without the daunting memories of the battlefield, she settles on a mission to learn the meaning of the words “I love you” whispered by her superior during his final moments. Apart from offering a rousing experience to fans, the anime series is an inspiration to artists across the world. ???

Sweetchann’s sketch captures Violet’s sad state. Despite the lack of coloring, the piece is neatly presented with a dull mood to project the message intended for viewers.
Adding color magnifies the art’s mood. The close-up view of the young girl reveals unshed tears. The golden stripe at the left side of her hair is a unique touch.

Otaku.arts presents Evergarden reading a piece of paper. From her slightly parted lips, one can only assume she does not want to miss a thing. The artist has captured a reflection of light on the pendant and her face. ?

amyw_art’s work is unique. The big blue eyes blend well with the sketch. The lovely piece shows a scared Violet without her usual neck-length attire. Every line is neatly drawn to reveal Evergarden’s features including hair, collarbone, and neck. Even the clothe’s creases outline her posture from the slightly-risen shoulder.
The pink patches blend well with the dark shade visible towards her left hand while the lighting changes the tone. Instead of seeing a scared girl, the artist presents a shy yet content Violet.
