Soliloquy by alicexz Soliloquy by alicexz

Limited edition of 80 (sold out)



"All those moments will be lost in time, like… tears… in rain. Time to die…"
Blade Runner (1982)

Another one of the closing piece from my solo show this summer, MOMENTS! Inspired by Roy Batty's beautiful final scene (partially unscripted by the actor, Rutger Hauer!) I think anyone who's seen the film will vividly recall this part... android feelings...

I nearly died working on this painting, it was so difficult, but I’m happy with how it finally turned out! Painted with references on a Cintiq 21UX tablet in Adobe Photoshop.
STEP-BY-STEP PAINTING PROGRESS: soon | REBLOG ON TUMBLR: alicexz.tumblr.com/post/590574…

Alice, I absolutely love this piece!  Sadly, I missed out on the run over at Bottleneck.  Do you have any more of these prints available?  I must have one!

Thank you so much in advance.

I think you've captured a powerful scene quite well. The colors fit very well with both the original look of the shot and the mood of it.
You have a way of emphasizing important parts and and keeping others in the background. Good work.

My favourite moment from the film. Beautiful use of light and colour.
I'm following you as I've just started to work with Photoshop and Cintiq and I love how you have mastery of the formats.
I'm hoping I can learn.
